Mississippi River Video

Costa Mesa, California

December 27, 2019

Dear Family & Friends:

Attached is a video documenting my trip down the Big Muddy, starting on July 26, 2019 at Lake Itasca, Minnesota and ending on November 17, 2019 in the Gulf of Mexico.

The video is 58 minutes long. Try to view the documentary on a big screen. Here is the You Tube link if you want to watch the video on a large screen television: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hifTBhRLf4

The video captures this iconic River, from beginning to end. It also includes the cities I visited and the fantastic people I met along the way.

In a few days, I will post my annual New Year’s message.

God Bless You,

  2. Bill, Congratulations on your completed river trip. Wonderful you completed it with no major mishaps. Wondering what the next adventure will be. You’re my hero, Pat Hoag

  3. Bill…just finished viewing your incredible paddle down the Big Muddy! Amazing and wonderful photos and so many nice people you encountered on your journey. You looked great and fit as ever and I am sure you bought a whole box load of hot sauce home from your Southern travels. Keep it up and “80 Up Everest” is just around the corner.

    “Keep on keeping!”


    Go Sea Kings

  4. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess
    I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still
    new to everything. Do you have any helpful hints
    for newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
