Next Saturday July 7th I will begin my journey down the entire length of the Mighty Mississippi from Lake Itasca in Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico. The amount of preparation up to this point has been enormous. I feel prepared and am ready to get this adventure started.
I have spent this past week doing my final training, double checking my gear list, doing a lot of press, and going over last minute details with my team. This journey is being used to raise awareness and money for ShelterBox USA, a disaster relief charity. My local paper, The News Press, did an article and video that describes what this means to me probably better than I can say it myself so here is the link:
I’m also going to be posting some short videos during my trip to my YouTube channel. Here is the first one. Don’t worry, they will get better.
I look forward to keeping you updated on my progress along the way so please subscribe to my blog and my YouTube channel and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
