This past summer, California-based paddlers Peter, Dan, and Paul Bragiel, along with their filmmaker friend Tony Corella, canoed the length of the mighty Mississippi River. It took them 61 days, and involved a lot of trial and error—between the four of them, they had accumulated only three days of paddling experience before taking on the 2,552-mile trip. This is the first installment of an upcoming series of webisodes chronicling their adventure.
