RiverNotes- Live Blog Posting Starts Tomorrow

Posted to MarineNews Notes (by on July 1, 2010

From July 2-8 Raina Clark will be posting on-the-spot updates from vessels on the Mississippi and Illinois rivers

Raina Clark, Managing Editor at MarineNews, is pulling on her steel-toed boots to ride pushboats and barges from St. Louis, Missouri to Davenport, Iowa.The Upper Mississippi is known for its agricultural commodities and Raina will be getting a “water level” look at what moving dry cargo on the inland waterways is like on a day-to-day basis.

After a few days on the Mississippi, she’ll cross over to the Illinois River, known more for steel and industrial products. The journey back to St. Louis will take her through about 20 different locks, including some of the most ancient as well as the most modern infrastructure in the system.
