We are officially looping!! Finally! We arrived in Grafton, IL yesterday and immediately met up with other Loopers. "Young at Heart," "DeDe," "Island Time," "Snail Mail," and "Halcyon" are here. More boats are expected tomorrow. Apparently there's a huge traffic jam at Lock 52 on the Ohio where over 40 towboats are waiting to lock through. By traveling together, we loopers may be allowed to lock through in a group when we get there. So we are all staying here in Grafton till Thursday when we will move on. We will probably get to lock 52 sometime during the weekend.
Meanwhile we enjoyed a potluck last night featuring homemade enchiladas and egg rolls- so delicious !
