Hi Mike,  Good morning.  Just another sunny day in Paradise.  We topped off fuel at Green Turtle Bay and then again in Cape Girardeau, MO.  They have a fuel dock on the Mississippi River.  You call the number listed in the Quimby's Cruising Guide.  The guy brings a tank truck to the dock and you can purchase fuel.  You will need it by the time you get there.  The Ohio is an easy cruise but when you turn upstream in the Mississippi the current in that area is running pretty fast.  You will have to do turns for 15 knots to do 9.  Make sure you stay in the channel and have a nice cruise.
