Columbia Missouri is planning a homecoming welcome for Janet Moreland this monday for anyone in the area at Coopers Landing on the Missouri River.
Janet is attempting to be the first American and first women to paddle North Americas longest river system. From the headwaters of the Missouri River at Browers Spring in the Centennial Mtns of Montana she began the end of April. She is headed for the Gulf of Mexico nearly 4500-miles solo.
When so many paddlers have been traveling to remote places in the world for a "first descent" of whatever river; right here in the heartland of the USA a record "first" is taking place. Overlooked? Who knows, but still no American man has done this route from Source-to-Sea yet. Last year Mark Kalch became the first person (Aussie) to do this route as part of his 7-rivers-7continents quest.
Janet should reach the Gulf in late fall.

Epic indeed. Nothing like that lame circumnavigation of Australia, or New Zealand, or South America.
That's quite a journey.|
