Some of you Big River fans have asked some pretty personal questions in the last few days: Where do you sleep? How do you eat? What do you do for fun? Max, how can you stand Bill when he whistles all day? And to you I answer– Most of the time that we’re on the river there is plenty to do. We still are making improvements to Evangeline’s systems (we just redid the whole electrical system yesterday). We are trying to stay fit, so one person drives while the other does sets of exercises. And I’m trying to learn this banjo while retaining a friendship with Bill, so I practice a less than I should to get good by New Orleans.
When we are docked in a town we try to line up interviews or we ask if there is a big story to hit, only downstream, of course. And we grocery shop and explore small towns and get haircuts, stuff you would never see an action star do. Between keeping ourselves supplied with night crawlers, beer, and electrical wire, there’s a lot to keep us busy. Oh yeah, and we have to keep our electronic gizmos charged, shoot, edit, upload, write, revise, and publish video and text blogs every day. That’s a thing too.
