Roger Giles, along with his wife and a friend, is taking a two-story, 80-year-old stern-wheeler boat by river from Marietta, Ohio, to Cooper's Landing in Columbia. The 1000-plus mile journey will take them on the Ohio River to Cairo, Ill., where they will join the Mississippi River. They will then switch in St. Charles to the Missouri River and travel the last 170 miles to Cooper’s Landing.
