5 friends paddle against the current

Over the years, the NewsCut staff has lived vicariously through the cross-country journeys of others. Quite often, they're canoe trips down the Mississippi River. We also have a fondness for those who paddle against the current, which is why it's worth noting today that five paddlers, four of them from Saint Cloud, have made it to Minnesota in their quest to travel from the Gulf of Mexico to the Arctic Ocean. They say no one has ever traveled the route in one trip.
