Bob Bellingham of Perth, Australia stopped Thursday at Cooper's Landing during his kayaking trip from the headwaters of the Missouri River to Saint Louis. Paddling from 7 a.m. to sundown has taken a toll on Bellingham's body. He has lost some weight, but he said he thinks his wife will be happy about that.
