Video: Old Man River Chapter 5

The fifth chapter of the ten part series Old Man River Project is now available for viewing and you’ll find the latest episode below. The series chronicles the adventures of the crew of a handmade York boat who spent 110 days navigating the length of the Mississippi River, covering more than 2400 miles (3862km) in the process.

In this latest episode the team faces a new set of challenges, not the least of which is poor weather that makes their journey an uncomfortable one. They’re also forced to navigate a series of locks and dams along the Mississippi as well as they continue their inevitable paddle towards the Gulf of Mexico.
