at 9:00 am this morning we left Harborside Marina in Wilmington,Il. We traveled with two other boats today one from Port Sheldon and one from Grand Haven. We have traveled approximately 100 miles so far. Had to stop at Starved Rock Marina for the night at 3:oo pm today because the lock was closed for repair. Plan to leave early tomorrow to make up for lost time today. Dave is busy catching Asian Carp. Miss everyone.
