We rode from the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Itasca, Minnesota, to the Gulf of Mexico at New Orleans , Louisiana and back… We completed the first leg–from Hastings, MN to Itasca, MN and back then crossed into Prescott, Wisconsin and rode the east side of the Mississippi to New Orleans, Louisiana and crossed the great river from east to west on the ferry. We headed north on the west side of the river and arrived back in Red Wing, Minnesota. Here’s a peek at our story in pictures.
Just four friends, and four thousand miles. Like someone smarter than me said, “all men die, but not all men live.”
The trip took ten days and the rest of the story is contained below. Enjoy the read and the pictures.
