In Transit Mississippi River Adventure

I believe everyone has a grand adventure hidden deep within.  Peter Bragiel, along with his brothers and cameraman-friend Tony, have realized a dream from childhood and they documented the trip.

Peter, Dan, and Paul have dreamed of canoeing the entire length of the Mississippi River since they were kids.  Nevermind they really hadn’t paddled canoes or camped like this.

I watched the entire series over the course of a couple of days.  It held my attention.  I guess I’m a sucker for this kind of thing.

Watch as the Bragiels travel from Lake Itasca, Minnesota all the way to the Gulf of Mexico.  It took 61 days, a couple stops at clinics, a few canoe repairs, and plenty of pizza and beer to complete the excursion, but they did it.

Question:  What adventure is sitting just under the surface?  What thrill do you need to accomplish?
