What is it like to paddle the entire Mississippi?

This is my story and art from the journey.

It all started when…

I learned how to paddle a canoe at girl scout camp. I tried convincing my parents to let me paddle a canoe down the Mississippi River when I was sixteen years old. My bags were packed and the canoe was ready, but my parents never guessed that I was serious. When they saw my preparations, they asked me not to go. But I never gave up on the dream of paddling the river solo.
