Setting off

After finishing the Pacific Crest Trail I decided to fire off one more adventure before getting one of those crazy things called a job. I had wanted to do a long distance paddle for quite some time, so this seemed like the time to do it. The plan was pretty simple: load up my Klepper kayak with gear and 30 days of food and head down the Mississippi river from my hometown of Minneapolis. After 30 days, see how I feel and either keep going all the way to New Orleans or return home. The timing seemed good - nice autumn colors, cool temps, migrating fowl, and no bugs. On the downside, however, I also figured there could be some challenges with an October trip - low water levels after a very dry September, short days getting even shorter, and certainly some cold weather to be expected at times.

Upper Mississippi River

Other Trail is located off the beaten path, somewhere between the soles of your feet and your imagination.
