So here’s what we do back in civilization after we just spent 4 days and 320 nm of the river with virtually no internet. Chicago to the Mississippi River leg of the #greatloop trip on #missmarianne – https://

Genset troubleshooting this morning on #MissMarianne and St Louis is in our sights. We lost the genset twice yesterday, so had to check the water flow, impeller, sensors, and fuses. Albert talks to the boat when he’s doing stuff (I should get more video of this – I got video and time lapse both and will get both uploaded – watch this post). We got a late start but underway. Someone was going to see about getting a photo of us as we pass the St Louis Arch, I don’t remember who, but you can go to marine tracker and search for Marianne. We just entered the Mississippi River and headed south.

A few of my favorites from Hoppies this morning. We are heading into a 200 mile stretch with no docks, no marinas, no fuel, no food. We have the aft deck loaded with extra cans of fuel. We’re only running the genset occasionally to charge batteries and things, basically powered the boat down to just the Garmins. We’ll keep you updated if we can and if not we’ll see you on the other side in a couple days. #MissMarianne www.lifeofacaptain.com
