Rivergator #011: WEEK 2 PADDLERS

In Week 2, we had our leader John Ruskey exit the canoe for an impromptu family emergency. Mike Clark, founder of Big Muddy Adventures, who had been on with us since St. Louis, helped through his Middle Mississippi territory. We lost Janet, Tony, Tim, and Tanner, and gained Dennis Van Norman alongside the Grasshopper, in his 17' sea kayak.

Dennis Van Norman is 73, and over the span of the past decade, aims to complete the entire length of the Mississippi River in his 17' sea kayak. Hailing from St. Paul, Minnesota, his career flourished in Human Resources, but excels in the newest offshoot: Humor Resources.
