    S 1 : Ep 3 - 7/3/10

    Rising flood waters continue to plague the journey when a giant log punches a hole in the boat, forcing Marcus, Stephen and Bill out of the water to make crucial boat repairs. As the journey continues, things seem to go more smoothly, and the guys are able to try their hands at barge work and meet an archeologist who shares some of the river's history. But, as the finish line nears, they are faced with perhaps their biggest challenge yet-a hurricane is barreling down on the Gulf of Mexico, where the Mississippi ends. After traveling so far, will the team be able to achieve their goal of completing the 2,300 mile journey?moreless

    S 1 : Ep 2 - 7/3/10

    Marcus, Stephen and Bill have traveled 500 miles on their journey down the Mississippi and rainstorms are pushing the river above flood stage, making the trip even more dangerous. They switch to a pontoon boat to navigate the middle third of the river, where they'll have to contend with heavy barge traffic, locks and dams. But unpredictable waters aren't their biggest concern; it's the four- to six-foot high waves that the barges create. If they don't stay on their toes, they could be swallowed by a wave and capsize!moreless

    When adventurers Marcus, Stephen and Bill set out to boat the entire length of the Mississippi River in September, they thought they had picked the perfect time of year and the trip would take only 30 days...turned out, they were wrong. Days of paddling in canoes and kayaks eats up time, and the team switches to an aluminum boat to get back on track. But, things take a turn for the worse when the rough river bottom damages the jet, leaving the guys stranded in the middle of nowhere without cell service and with a Minnesota winter storm on the horizon.moreless
