Mississippi Million gets under way

John Pritchard has started his frankly potty mission to row the entire 2,320 mile length of the Mississippi River to raise a million bucks for his charity, Right to Play.
Unfortunately, he has had to use a canoe for the first 125 miles from Lake Itasca, Minnesota, because, as you can see, at this point the stream is not exactly the Old Man River of legend and song. He and his crew found the rapids and shallows challenging, as he relates in his blog. More pictures on Facebook.
Best of luck John!
