Missouri/Mississippi Speed Descent

ADVENTURER: Paul Gamache

WHAT: 3,900 miles down the largest watershed in North America in 78 days.

HOW: Starting in Brower's Spring, Mont., the route to Louisiana that Gamache took was very much multi-discipline, including intense whitewater (what was likely the first descent of Hell Roaring Creek) and long, monotonous days battling eddy currents on the Mississippi. Gamache's descent marks the fourth full descent of the river system in the last two years, beating the last fastest descent by more than 40 days.
