[**Contains crude language.**] One of the things my friends and I used to like to do was pull our boat up to a sand bar in the Mississippi River near Memphis, TN, and build a campfire, grill some burgers and have a few beers. One evening while we were building our campfire, a shadowy figure appeared from behind one of the dunes. Out of the darkness came this truly mythic character, who called himself River Bill. We invited him to join us for some burgers and conversation. His story was that he was headed from St. Paul, down to New Orleans for some work he had lined up on a shrimp boat. The motor on his 16ft. Jon boat had broken down and he had pulled up on the bar to spend the night.
The video is a slide show from that evening, with some audio I recorded and edited from one of River Bill's stories.
