On this Trip we will be starting on Kentucky Lake, which is on the Tennessee River and will be going to Mobile, AL. The boat trip will be 640 miles and about 5 weeks. We will go through 12 huge locks on the way down. These rivers are used by commercial barge traffic and are very circuitous at times. Some of the barges can be 20 long and two wide, so getting out of their way is important! They stop for no one.
The last 3 days have been all about getting the boat to Kentucky Lake, launching it and then getting our rig to the destination point in Mobile. We then rented a car in Mobile and drove back to our starting point. A definite brain exercise to get all the moving parts to work in sync. Our friends, Rich and Cheryll are joining us on this trip. Today we start the real trip.
So sit back in the comfort of your home or office and join us for a ride through the south!
