Sam and Dan rode in the raft for a little ways and we towed their canoe.
Sam and Dan caught up with us.
Will and Kelly spent the night with us on the raft on an island across the river from Hannibal

The lock keeper and Google Maps told us there was a marina here we could eat at. Al later told us its been gone for almost 30 years.
Here's where we ate and met Al.

The people who live here work for a non profit organization that picks garbage out of the river. We had 2 full bags of garbage and they took them for us.
