Kanoeing for Katrina

A friend of pamie.com and very good friend of mine forwarded along her brother’s extremely worthy venture:

My tree-hugging, environmentalist brother is canoeing the entire length of the Mississippi River this summer for a very good cause. He is keeping a blog of this amazing adventure, updating it as regularly as he can. Aaron and his friend are donating money their trip has been making, and will be making, to the Mr. Holland’s Opus Foundation. If you’d like to donate to their cause or if you’d simply like to read up on the boys’ wild adventures, check out the link below. You won’t be disappointed.

And should I be tech-savvy enough to know exactly how they’re posting while the Mississippi River is lapping up around them in a tiny boat? Well, I SHOULD. But I imagine it involves the use of a hand-crank and some whale blubber for power. So probably I’m wrong.
