We left Alton early to get to Hoppies which is the last marina with fuel on the Mississippi before we turn up the Ohio River. This is no problem for us as we have only used about 1/3 of a tank on the entire trip so far! I love the American Tug because, although we were going with the current, I was getting up to 10 mpg.
It was overcast and rainy, and we passed through St. Louis with great disappointment. Fortunately, we have visited here before and toured the city and the Arch. On the other hand, this picture is unique in its own way. How many others can show just 1/3 of the Arch shrouded in fog to their friends?
