Bobbies fish camp. Great fish and the only place to get fuel for the next 100 miles. I got a couple of neighbors this evening. I checked the bildges, nothing to speak of. The oil, Trany fluid and water all good The strainers and racors good.

You 've got a pretty good grind to Demopolis tomorrow. Check your weather from 4:00 pm on. Looks like southern thunderstorms until dark. After that, got 7 locks in 70 miles ! No problem.

Where's the 7-70. I didn't even look at the weather. I guess since I got away from the big water I've been a little lax.

Oh man I just looked. Looks like I'm gonna hit afternoon for sure and maybe during the day. Oh man I knew I shoulda but on a few more today. I got lazy, put it off. I know I can't go threw the lock in a storm. Are there any holding areas I should try to get to and anchor I don't know sat don't look much better. I guess I better do some studing. Thanks for the heads up. I'm really getting lax here, falling asleep at the wheel.

Well it looks like kemps or Chickasaw if the weather is bad. I should probably go to kemps and try to anchor before the afternoon storms. I got friends coming in to demopolis Friday nite.

Sorry for delay in reply. I'm in B'ham with grandsons and don't have my books and charts. Those anchorages should work in a pinch. Also, we pushed too hard one day and had to anchor near bank in main river. Just pick a straight stretch and go shallow to avoid barge traffic. With your AIS no problem. These summer fronts are mainly popup thunderstorms, so even if you get caught in one, should be quick. Just one lock immediately prior to Demopolis marina. Just hope Zeus not reading your lighting rod posts !

Pretty much a repeat of yesterday. The banks are a little higher. I missed the first storm it passed threw demopolis before I got there. There's another one coming in but it doesn't look as bad. I'm at the 190 marker.
