Expedition: Mississippi. The Old Man River Project, Webisode 2 of 10
April 18, 2012
Day 15 to Day 21. September proves the perils of a long, hot summer. The Mississippi headwaters are low. The team struggles with portages, shallow waters and maneuvering the heavy boat around major boulder fields. Annie suffers serious abuse. By the time they reach Brainerd, Minnesota, emergency repairs must be undertaken. Low water levels have the expedition way behind schedule. Fatigue and frustration grow, as does damage to their boat.
