We left Midway Tuesday morning at first light, which is now about 6:30 am. We had a long day ahead of us, mostly in light rain conditions. We went fifty-nine miles through four locks. The highlight of today’s trip was to be the stop in Aberdeen, Mississippi for a great deal on fuel and their delicious ribs, potato logs and fried chicken.
It’s been three years since we first had the deep fried chicken in Aberdeen and it was still just as good the second time around. The diesel fuel was $2.69 per gallon. I never thought I’d think that was a great deal but compared to the $4.45 I paid last summer it seems like a bargain. $2.69, that’s a 38% savings! After Lisa, I and the boat were full we continued on towards the marina in Columbus, Mississippi arriving just before dark.
