Well, there IS work between vacations...
... I wish I could go to Daytona although it would be faster than a trip out west since I would have to trailer my bike. Vinnie from American Chopper will be unveiling his first bike there, he opened his own shop (V-Force Customs
with Cody) after leaving the show.
The current drops down quite a bit where the river widens.... maybe 1 knot
or less. However, it could get up to 3 knots or so in the narrows between the upper and lower lake. I usually just stay in the upper lake where I belong to the Illinois Valley Yacht and Canoe (IVY) club. A picture of our club is on the latest version of Quimby's 2007 Cruising Guide.
