Post 11-17, Day 64
From Robert: Sunday morning it was 32 degrees. I was on the river shortly after 7:00am. A direct headwind made paddling hard – no floating along for lunch. I stopped and topped lunch off with more ibuprophen. There is still lots of barge traffic – keeps you on your toes.
I made 41 miles today and set up camp overlooking Memphis. After some paperwork, I can see the end of the trek. I have approximately 643 river miles to go, to reach New Orleans. That doesn’t sound like too much when compared to the 1,550 plus river miles paddled so far. I’m guessing I will arrive in New Orleans between December 3 – 8.
