  Paddle the Missouri & the Mississippi
  Posted by: old_user on Feb-07-12 10:04 PM (EST)
 

Has anyone paddled the Missouri and the Mississippi all the way to the Gulf of Mexico? I am trying to plan a trip from Three Forks Montana to the gulf. Any info and input would be much appreciated.
Thank you.

during the Ultimate Canoe Challenge. Read the book, its got plenty of good info, although its 30 years old. He paddled from Three Forks to the Gulf on one section of the trip, although that was a small part of his 28000 mile adventure.

I assume you have read The Complete Paddler by David L. Miller and Ka-Ka-Ska-Ska by Jim Lewis. The first describes the Missouri from Three Forks to St Louis, the second the Mississippi from the headwaters to the sea.
When are you planning to go? I am planning to do the Missouri from Three Forks to James Kipp next year.

Go to Facebook and search "Missouri River Paddlers." Also look at "Files" for accounts of prior trips. Consider joining. A small, very knowledgeable group. When are you going, and planning on going solo or seeking a partner?
