Rollin' on the River

Congratulations to Swede Viktor (left) and Minnesotan Matthew (right) on completion of the their 59-day, 1,900 mile canoe expedition of the Mississippi River. They started at the Mississippi headwaters at Lake Itasca, Minnesota, in mid-May and arrived in New Orleans about three weeks ago. Additionally, there were two other expeditions of the River (two other guys from Minnesota also in a canoe and a lone Canadian in a kayak) that arrived in New Orleans two days later.
