Oct. 8, 2009---Made 60 miles upriver in 7 hours. Current rather strong at 1.5 mph increasing to 3.0 mph as we got closer to Pickwick Landing Lock. Waited an hour for a tow to finish locking up. We locked up 55' with "Sterling Lady". We met these boaters at Pebble Isle and again last night at Clifton. Unfortunately they had a rope wrapped aroung the prop. Tow U.S. was waiting outside the lock to give them assistance. We crossed into the northeast corner of the state of Mississippi and decided to tie up at Aqua Yacht Harbor since we had not been in that marina on any previous trips.
