Default Deadheading on the TWILIGHT

The Riverboat TWILIGHT's regular schedule is two day trips between LeClaire and Dubuque Iowa. But this year over the Fourth of July and Labor Day weekends, she ran one day round trips between Dubuque and Guttenberg. On Thursday the 28th I was privileged to ride upriver with the deck crew as they repositioned her in Dubuque. On Monday the 1st David and Jonathan Tschiggfrie were the invited guests on the downbound return trip.Thanks to Capt. Kevin and Carrie Stier for this great opportunity. Here are some 'behind the scenes' shots that aren't experienced during a regular cruise:

1) It wasn't a relaxing trip for the crew. Here is Capt. Kevin's to-do list for the day.
2) A big order of t-shirts came in, along with the need to reorganize the Gift Shop for the fall cruises.
3) Here we have 2 t-shirt folders: the human and a plastic folding guide thingy so that they are all folded evenly. I had folded many a t-shirt on the NATCHEZ, but freehand, so I just stayed out of their way.
