Video: The Old Man River Project

Stretching for more than 2400 miles, the Mississippi River is one of the most iconic waterways in the entire world. Navigating its length in any type of watercraft is a challenge to say the least. But Brett Rogers, along with four crew mates, set out to do just that – in a 32-foot handmade York boat named Annie no less.

The video below is the first of a new ten-part series that will be debuting over the coming weeks. That series will chronicle the adventures that Brett and his companions encountered as they traveled the Mississippi from its headwaters to its mouth at the Gulf of Mexico as part of their Old Man River Project.

If you like what you see here, be sure to checkout the expedition's official Vimeo page where they'll be unlocking new videos every Tuesday in the coming weeks. It looks like this will be one heck of a good webseries to follow.

haha thanks Kraig, it was an absolute blast. Dave's paddling the Wolf River in the Memphis area at the moment, and swimming the Missouri in a few months (crazy guy!)

LOL! Yeah, I knew he was swimming the Missouri later this year, but didn't know he was on the Wolf. He is one crazy guy! And I mean that in the best way possible! :)
