Mississippi thrupaddle in a folding kayak

Post by GermanTourist »

From September 29th to December 15th, 2012 I thrupaddled the Mississippi in a folding kayak, a Feathercraft K1.

The Mississippi is a paddler's dream: I had expected an industrialized and populated river and instead I encountered an almost pristine river and an incredible wildlife almost all the way to the delta.

However, there is not much information about the Mississippi for paddlers on the internet or in the media - very undeservedly. I am therefore posting the link to my Mississippi trip report on my blog here and hope to inspire others to do a similar trip.

And of course I am willing to help other thrupaddlers with information and tips!

Enjoy!

GT,

Thanks for the wonderful blog, sounds like quite a trip. They don't call it the big muddy for nothing!

Hope you'll stick around and continue to share. You are living the way most of us just dream.

Best,
