In 1930, two brave young men paddled from Minneapolis to Hudson Bay and documented their odyssey in the book Canoeing With the Cree. For the 75th anniversary of this historic adventure, two men canoed the same route in 2005, followed by two other men in 2008. No women have ever successfully canoed this route.
Two women are attempting what has never been done before, and their path has went right through the heart of Pembina/St. Vincent on the Red River of the North.
Right now they're waiting on the weather - high wind advisories on Gull Harbour - so they're taking a forced break until things calm down.
While they have a dedicated website for this journey, I recommend you also check out their blog, where they keep everyone updated daily on the latest.
Good luck, Natalie and Ann!
