Phendlers in the final stretch of Mississippi Challenge

By Gordon Lambie

As of yesterday morning, Eric and Daniel Phendler were only 138 miles from the end of their journey down the Mississippi River, with a tropical storm heading right their way. Although the two Townshippers told The Record recently that they expected to reach the Gulf of Mexico by labour day, having made better progress on the second half of their trip than expected, a week of bad weather slowed them to the point that they may be reaching the end of the river at about the same time as Tropical Storm Gordon. Although their goal to raise funds along the way to support Memphremagog Conservation Inc (MCI) has fallen far short of their initial $5,000 goal, the two brothers said that the experience of the trip itself has been unforgettable.
