Colorado Duo Kayaks Longest N. American Waterway

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - Two Colorado residents are aiming to be the first American men to kayak the longest waterway in North America.

Joe Zimmerman and Nick Caiazza's journey will begin at Brower's Spring, Montana on the Missouri River.

They'll kayak down the Missouri to the Mississippi, and eventually, end up in the Gulf of Mexico.

The duo will paddle 8 hours-a-day across 14 states and nearly 4,000 miles.

Caiazza said they hope to raise awareness about the fragile state of America's waterways.

"We're not really treating our rivers and our ecosystems with as much as respect as they deserve, and I think that's at the heart of our expedition, is to kind of show a waterbody, how the river is transforming from source to sea," Caiazza said.

Caiazza said they kicked off the journey this afternoon, and hope to reach the Gulf of Mexico in about five months.
