The second book went to the printer this week. Yea! This book will cover about 170 miles of Mississippi River real estate (on both banks) stretching from LeClaire, Iowa/Rapids City, Illinois to the Blackhawk Bridge at Lansing, Iowa. I’ll have more to say about the book later.
For now, my main task is adding content to the Mississippi Valley Traveler website to support the release of the book. I’ll be adding content nearly every day for the next couple of weeks, at least until I get the entries for each town completed. I’d like to find a better navigation tool for the right sidebar and need to improve the look with a few formatting changes, but I haven’t had time to dig around and figure out how to make those happen, yet. I will probably rewrite the intro in the near future, to0.
Check it out and let me know what you think. Tell me if the information would be useful to you, if you’re having trouble getting around the site, or anything else you feel like commenting on (about the website, anyway). And, if you’d like to volunteer some time to make the site more kick-ass, please let me know. I’m open to adding more kick-assedness.
I look forward to your critiques.
