We left NM on Sept. 16. We made stops at Tucumcari, Tulsa, Rolla, MO, and arrived at the River on the 19th. We launched the boat at the Alton, Ill marina on the 22nd and made the following stops.
From Demopolis we had to rent a car and drive back to Alton, Ill where the truck and trailer had been stored. Here is an interesting aside: What took us 19 days by river took us 10 hours by road! After returning to Demopolis we rested up and then on October 14, we started back. Stops at Shreveport, Abilene, Las Cruces, and Tucson, Yuma, and Ventura Harbor before pulling in to Monterey on Oct. 20th. All in all, not counting the rental car trip back to Alton, we estimate we drove about 4000 miles. River miles we estimate at about 700.
