    Default DQ trip videos

    Finally got the videos to play, and that was Debbie Fagnano on the NATCHEZ calliope playing her finale, the Saints, as the DQ passed. I believe she also played I Aint Down Yet, which she also played at the restart of the DQ under DN... having found out who Finley's partner is, I have to tell him I'm still wearing my Oregon Ducks stuff, even though his Beavers triumphed - in the first meeting!

    Default Demopolis webcam

    Here´s a webcam showing the river at Demopolis. I figured out that it must be shortly above the lock and the webcam is facing downriver.

    So if anyone is able to figure out when the DQ is locking through we might get a glimpse of her. According to previous information the DQ should be at Demopolis by 3 pm today.

    John,

    no information regarding your question right now.

    Default A few from near Epes (Rt 11 Bridge over the Tombigbee)

    Was able to catch up (or rather, the DQ finally caught up with me) about 10 AM. Below are some views taken as she travelled under Rt 11 about 25 miles before Heflin Lock.

    Default Yes Virginia, there is a working Calliope on the DQ

    Steam can be seen from the Calliope as the DQ passed Mile 250. Who was the Calliope player?
