    Enjoy your trip! I caught your story in the Peoria, IL Journal Star website. (sorry about the overzealous Pekin police…..they’re known for being jerks) I live and work near St. Louis, but grew up on the Illinois River near Havana. e-mail me or call me at 314-954-1671 when you get to St. Louis. I can get you any supplies you may need at that time. You’re both welcome to spend the night in our home too; we have plenty of space.

    all the best, happy paddling
