    Too bad there wasn’t a rain coming by at th same time. 4 modes of transportation:boat, car, train& footpower.

    When I was a kid, just for the fun of it, I spent several nights in an abandoned barge anchored in the river at the levee’s edge.

    Having lived in New Orleans for many years, I saw this sight more times than I can count. It never gets old to me, and thanks for the memories.

    I have never been west before but seeing your trip makes me want to go. It’s amazing how many friendly people you meet that want to help you. (I know I am blessed with so many friends who are willing to lend a hand, even those I have never met in person)

    good luck and stay safe. I love following you on the blog and seeing your pics

    These tracks are the route of Amtrak’s Empire Builder — which runs between Chicago and Portland and Seattle! I rode this train last month — my timing was a bit off I guess, if I had gone now, I might have seen you just walkin! :) The eastbound train would run past where you are each day at midmorning. Anyway, looks like you are having a beautiful sunny day in Minnesota. Wish I could walk with you for a ways!
