Paul R brings Detroit Free Press to Duluth

 2015-0625-1933
The Paul R. Tregurtha came under the Duluth Aerial Lift Bridge this morning at 9:00. Jim Schaefer, reporter for the paper, was streaming the arrival live via Periscope from his cell phone. My guess is, this is the first live video from a boat coming under the Bridge. Periscope is a program recently published by Google that allows live streaming via cell phone, which is to say we now all have  television stations in our pocket. And I thought the World Wide Web was impressive. This may be the best way to follow the trip, or, if they are leaving the boat here, to see their past videos of the trip. https://twitter.com/DetroitReporter
and follow Jim on Twitter: @DetroitReporter where you will be notified when he goes live; at least a couple times yet today. Only 3  problems; like a lot of new cell phone camera persons, it is a little bumpy and Periscope has not yet learn how to do landscape. And worst of all, Jim calls those of us watching from the dock, Freighter Watchers. I have informed him, via Twitter, that we are Boatwatchers.

    I have tried several times to follow their journey at the Free Press website, but could only watch one video then was frozen out of the site. I saw others listed, but never could find the list again. Hope they have a good trip. I wanted to see if Ken was on one. Hope others have better luck.
