Janet Moreland is attempting to become the first woman to complete a solo kayak trip down the entire length of the Missouri River, from its source at Brower’s Spring, Mont., to its juncture with the Mississippi River at St. Louis. She has been sharing updates on her trip on her journey's Facebook page and blog, and she gave the Missourian permission to share some of those posts.
