Default Graceful Ghost still going

FYI: We have successfully sold the Steamer Graceful Ghost and our electric paddlewheeler, Swamp Thing, and they are both in operation. So all is not lost. Both are remaining on Caddo Lake. We, however, are not. One more load of stuff and we will be permanent residents of Leadville, Colorado. Yipee! (Actually, we are just outside of Leadville in what used to be an old railroad town called Malta, or as one old map indicated, Swilltown. We have latched on to that Swilltown nom.) We have what is called a Prow design house and will affix running lights to the forward end, which is on a permanent SSW heading, holding on a convenience store and Mt. Elbert, the tallest mountain in Colorado. The view from the pilot house is quite nice. The nearest body of water, California Gulch, runs through our property. A short distance away it joins the Arkansas River. Most navigation in this area is by rubber raft or kayak. We brought three of our boats with us to use on nearby lakes or when travelling.
