<![CDATA[Day 60: The end of our journey...]]>Sun, 02 Aug 2015 19:41:00 GMThttp://paddleforprevention.weebly.com/photosvideos/day-60-the-end-of-our-journeyWe had to make a pretty big decision today for our journey. After 60 days we have decided to end the trip. The high waters and constant boat traffic put us at a state where we no longer feel safe being on the Mississippi River. We are pretty bummed we have to end 146 miles short of the gulf, but we have come a long way and are proud of ourselves for that! Paddling 2150 miles and raising $14,571 for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention has made this a journey of a lifetime! We've met a lot of great people on this trip and have had a lot of support for our cause. We can't thank everyone enough and hope you enjoyed following our journey as much as we have!

<![CDATA[Day 59: Passed through Baton Rouge]]>Sat, 01 Aug 2015 19:33:15 GMThttp://paddleforprevention.weebly.com/photosvideos/day-59-passed-through-baton-rougeToday we was a lot to handle with all the boat traffic as we paddled through Baton Rouge. But we made it and now are less than 200 miles to the gulf. If all goes to plan will be done on August 5th!
Check out this short video as we paddled with Dale Sanders when leaving Memphis!

He showed us all around and helped us out getting ready for our final stretch down the Mississippi. Can't thank him enough!

Layne shared with us this great source about the lower Mississippi River water trail. Something fun to check out!
