  OT Pack down the Mississippi ?
  Posted by: Larry_S on May-10-13 12:43 PM (EST)
 

I only have 4 years in a Canoe myself and I do have an
OT Pack that I use for fishing. Wenonah Argosy in Royalex for river paddling around the Midwest.
There's NO F'in Way I'd try to go on the Mississippi
with a loaded OT pack below MN. The Mississippi is
a BIG river down there with lots of barge traffic now
that there's water in the river again after last summer.
I think you'll need a tandem canoe rigged as a solo
for load carrying capacity but you may get away with
a longer Trip Solo type. You won't be able to just pull over anywhere and get a Motel Room. Also restocking along the way will require planning.
But a 12 ft. long tub like a Pack ?
Other than that it sounds like an Adventure (with Capital A).
Just my considered opinion.
