July 13, 2016 Days go by rather quickly! Thought I best give an update. Mike and Carol Kluver drove all night and arrived home in Mechanicsville, Virginia at 5:30 a.m. We sure enjoyed their company and look forward to the future when they may join us again.
July 14th the 4 mcgees spent time wondering the streets of Nashville. Mostly on Broadway often called Honky Tonk Row. Sounds of country music can be heard coming from the many joints on either side of the street. I am sure each of the musicians is hoping for their big break. Eating is always a priority. Having eaten hamburgers at several places we decided the best were found at Paradise Park. Fries left something to be desired though. Capped off the evening with an open air ride in a hearse on Nashville Ghost Tour.
July 15-left Nashville (mile 190.5) behind as we traveled down river with a good current. Went thru Cheatham lock at 148.7 with no waiting. Gate was opened as we arrived, and it did not take long to get lowered 26 feet. Another boat joined us in the lock. We had been traveling about the same speed for about 20 miles. Continued to Clarksville at mile 127.4 dodging around lots of debris. Glad to be tied up in the marina after traveling 63.1 miles in 7 hours.
