Old Man River Mississippi Adventure, Episode 2

From Day 15 to Day 21 on the river, September proves the perils of a long, hot summer. The Mississippi headwaters are low. The team struggles with portages, shallow waters and maneuvering the heavy boat around major boulder fields. The York boat, Annie, suffers serious abuse. By the time the team reaches Brainerd, MN, emergency repairs must be undertaken. Low water levels have the expedition way behind schedule. Fatigue and frustration grow, as does damage to their boat.
