Default The Final Report from the UMR

As I get ready to pack up my laptop, the NATCHEZ is an hour or two away from Cincinnati (midnight Sunday). They cleared the last lock, Markland, at 6:49PM. I'm sure the crew is ready for some real beds and showers after 8 days nonstop onboard. A report from Keith was that the BELLE had left her wharf this morning and was proceeding upriver when the NATCHEZ appeared out of the canal. After the NATCHEZ slowed to pick up Michael Blaser midstream, she resumed full ahead and caught up to the BELLE in short time. Whistle salutes and much picture-taking as she passed, and she was off into the distance... It was a beautiful day and safe to say a few good shots were gotten by the photogs...
