On this River expedition two 18’6 MacKenzies traveled 5633 km from the Continental Divide in Glacier Ntl Park, Montana eventually finding their way to the Missouri, then the Mississippi and eventually to the Gulf of Mexico.
“Our clipper canoes carried us down the small creeks of Montana, across the ocean like Missouri River reservoirs, and down the Mighty Mississippi River for 3,500 miles. The stability made us feel safe in tough conditions and the large carrying capacity gave us the flexibility to carry enough gear for long periods…including our bicycles! A perfect boat for long distance travel.” Nia Thomas, www.ontheriver.org
