Mile 437. Vicksburg, Mississippi.

cold air is back, promising a tailwind as we leave the hospitality of our new friends, and the shelter of our temporary home aboard the Sweet Olive-the town’s river tour boat- here in Vicksburg.

The river is finally on the rise as water from the Ohio valley trickles down behind us. Hopefully pushing us along the next 300 miles to NOLA. Unfortunately my computer has met an untimely end. So only short post’s from Julia’s iPhone until the gulf.


About banksofthebasin

Brett grew up in South Jersey, moved to the coast of Maine to study human ecology, and then spent a year traveling on rivers around the world—from the frozen arctic to the mangroves of south Asia. Before setting out on Banks of the Basin he baked bread in Pittsburgh and kayaked the beautiful rivers of central Appalachia.
