Down the river in a boat made of trash

Matt Bergstrom's trashboatOur friend Matt Bergstrom recently took a trip down the Chicago river in a boat made of trash. He had hoped to make it to the Mississippi, but the fates conspired against him. He’s posted a day-by-day account of his trip with some great pictures on his web site. We were so impressed with it that we named a new song in honor of the voyage: Mississippi Trashboat.
