Hello Capt. Mike!
I've been following the progress of the DQ almost
nightly by searching locations on the Corps of
Engineers web site. It's fun to follow her travels this
way...even at 3 or 4 AM!

I got a lot of fine video footage on the 75th
Anniversary trip and I want to thank you again for
your interview. I'm putting a program together now
and hope to have it ready in a couple of weeks. I've
got some really nice vintage shots, too...even
some of the Admiral and President and several
Greene Line boats. It should be pretty nice when
we're done.

Even so, I somehow overlooked shooting any
video of the floor shows or dinners so if anyone
reads this and has some good video of these
events that you'd let me use, I'd like to hear from

This was the first DQ cruise for my wife and I but it
certainly won't be our last. It's amazing how that
beautiful boat clings to one's soul.

Meanwhile, I'm getting up steam on my own little
sternwheeler. The scent of coal smoke and
mellow whistle sounds are similar to the golden
age on the river but I'm afraid, at 21ft, our amenities
pale in comparison to the DQ!
