Default They are coming from both directions!

The AMERICAN QUEEN, which passed through here Oct. 1 upbound, will be in Davenport Wednesday for her downbound shore stop. She'll be back up here Tuesday the 15th with river luminaries Schoen and Hameister aboard. Meanwhile, the QUEEN OF MISSISSIPPI is upbound, looks like she'll get here around noon Tuesday. I haven't checked her schedule to see if she's stopping on the upbound or not. River luminary aboard her is Capt. Paul PT Thoene as afterwatch pilot. PT is well known as the MISSISSIPPI QUEEN Master for many years. He spent a year here one week in 2006 as they repaired and repaired her boilers. Little did we know then it would be her last year here, or anywhere, underway.
So crank up those webcams if you want to see some overnight boats on the UMR these next couple of weeks. As usual this past year and a half, I have church meetings coinciding with the shore stops, but I suspect I'll at least get a gander along the way somewhere in the harbor...
