Default Spirit of Cincinnati

Some time ago there was a question on here and facebook as to the M/V Spirit of Cincinnati. Well the Spirit is off on a very long delivery trip to its new owners. All the way to Pierre, South Dakota. Now Pierre is about 340 miles above the head of navigation on the Missouri River. As all rivermen know, Souix City at mile 734 is considered the head. Not only does the Spirit have to go 340 more miles it has to pass over three(3) huge fixed dams. Gavin point at mile 811, Ft. Randall at mile 880 and finally Big Bend Dam ay mile 987.5. A rather extrodinary journey to say the least.
