On hold - From Aaron & Jake
As we left from Alton, IL this morning we called the Coast Guard and found out the river is closed from marker 185 (St. Louis) to marker 109 (Chester, IL) There isn't anything we can do besides get a ride to where we can get back on the river. The Coast Guard has come to the decision that the flood waters have made the river unsafe for recreational craft... such as a canoe. We will respect their decision. We're staying in St. Louis at a friend's place for the night, as planned.
