Canoeist return to Minnesota after 5,000 mile trip 07 Sep 15

After eight months and over 5,000 miles, six friends from Minnesota and Iowa returned to Minnesota Sunday after paddling their canoes from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean. The Rediscovering North America crew finished their 244 day expedition on Tuesday in Canada. The crew began their journey January 2 and paddled 199 of the 244 days. They now look forward to some rest and relaxation. A documentary of their journey is in the works.
