No cell coverage for 120 miles prior to arriving in Peoria, the only other largish town, apart from Columbus on this River/Waterway from Mobile to Chicago.

We experienced the Asian Carp, which jumps when frightened, escaping perceived threats.

I unfortunately received an urgent phone call from my brother Mark, that my mum who was in hospital for a back operation, had taken a turn for the worse and had been placed on Life Support. With poor prognosis, I hurriedly booked a flight for the next day to fly 36 hours to Johannesburg. Nicholas remains with Meshugga at anchor in Peoria. I return to Meshugga on Thursday 24 May.
