The Story

11 Visions finished their paddling trip that took us from Lake Itasca, MN to beyond New Orleans, LA. While we’re not the first to attempt such a trip, what we’re doing different is filming the adventure for  a feature-length movie. The movie titled The River is Life will feature the people we meet along the river as well as the fun aspects of this great American adventure. The River is Life will be finished in August 2010.
