Holy Man Adventures

Holy Man Adventures in MinnesotaHoly Man Adventures is a group of close friends who have traveled the world, climbed its mountains and surfed its seas. This time they’ve fused their passions into one raucous paddle down the Mississippi River. We – Mark, Jeff, Jon, Ben, and Dave – have been planning this trip for four years. Now, propelled by a beautiful Old Town Penobscot 17 RX named “Rachel” (as well as a classic Old Town canoe), we are excited to share our two-month journey through blog updates and photos.

Commissioned by the EPA and Below the Surface, our Mississippi photo-bloggers are documenting their 2,300+-mile journey as part of the "Riverview" project, which will create the equivalent of Google Steetview for the nation's largest waterways. For a better understanding of their work, check out the following article: 2012/ 02/13/a-street-view-for-rivers/#more-132439
