    I would like to do this again. :)

    Actually, @buckbuck is there anywhere on the river to slip overnight near the starting point? Since I’m coming from the south, I’d be tempted to launch in Peoria on Saturday and run up that afternoon, and come down with the group on Sunday morning and depart after lunch.

    It may be saturday or sunday.
    I believe it just has worked better on sundays.
    This will probably be planned right after shelbyville.

    Peoria doesn't have slips and while there are a few docks along the way peoria and one other place i know of have fuel but that's it. There is no fuel and sometimes no docks at starved rock.

    I might try to do this again. Finally being on the dayshift makes it a little easier.

    Peru, Spring Valley, Henry and several places in Peoria will have Fuel.

    Staying at Starve Rock puts the Dam in play and it can hold you up for a long time. Spring valley boat club has docks for overnight stays. South shore boat club may have some docks in Peru. Peru also has hotels and Uber.

    Peoria is still limited on places to eat at on Sundays.

    Hoping to attend as well, once someone sets a date. :)

    Might leave the kids at home this time. It was a long ride for them. All 3 fell asleep on the way back after lunch last year.
