Back Home


Well we made it to Golconda and finished the race in under 11 hours, got our t-shirts, walked a block to the Ohio River for a picture and had some jambalya on the square in town.

Right next to the river was this fixer-up house. My wife has been talking for sometime about going further south and living on the water. The only thing seperating this house from the Ohio River is a forty foot levee which takes a bit away from the view. Not sure that this is exactly what she had in mind.

I finally arrived home after 11 pm, slowed down a bit by a state trooper who pulled me over for speeding just 2 miles from home. Even though he was impressed that I'd been part of a 80 mile run from the Mississippi River to the Ohio, he was sufficiently impressed to not give me a $95 ticket.
