It has been an incredible journey, with literally thousands of followers, help from hundreds of River Angels, several on water paddlers, and a ton of family support. Today, Richard Sojourner and I reached the Gulf of Mexico, 22 miles south of Venice, Louisiana at 1330. Following close behind us were Layne Logue, Austin Graham, and Dominique Lebanon.
The words of my dear friend, Papaw Richard Day summed up those last 10 miles perfectly
It was a long boat ride at slow speeds, with much bonding, fellowship and love generated. As the canoes neared the gulf, the whole group was nearby. The sisters, Judi Sanders Silvey and Elaine Bush, watched intently, as if counting down the strokes. The group became silent, very silent, the hum of the motors at almost idle speed accentuated the heart beats and the deep breathing going on. And then, Dale Sanders beaches his craft, stands in the boat - not as usual with a raised paddle and shouting - but comes up erect and then with a lean to the left, goes overboard For THE SWIM.
Congratulations goes out to Dale Sanders for paddling the entire Mississippi River at 80 years old, in 80 days, and raising over $22,000 for Juvenile Diabetes in the process... That's 2350 miles in 80 days and not in an RV... In a canoe. You have reached legendary status! -- Jonathan Brown
It's an honor to know the first 80 year old to paddle the Mississippi River source to sea for such a noble cause. Dale, you're the greatest! Remember to take the swim! -- Ellen McDonah
Outstanding! You are a hero! I am constantly told by people along the river that they're too old to do the trip. I tell them about you and that you're CRUSHING it and leaving many of us younger paddlers in your wake. Congratulations! I wish you a hot shower and a very comfy bed!

Omg I Finally Got Helped !! I'm so excited right now, I just have to share my testimony on this Forum.. The feeling of being loved takes away so much burden from our shoulders. I had all this but I made a big mistake when I cheated on my wife with another woman and my wife left me for over 4 months after she found out.. I was lonely, sad and devastated. Luckily I was directed to a very powerful spell caster Dr Emu who helped me cast a spell of reconciliation on our Relationship and he brought back my wife and now she loves me far more than ever.. I'm so happy with life now. Thank you so much Dr Emu, kindly Contact Dr Emu Today and get any kind of help you want.. Via Email email@example.com or Call/WhatsApp cell number +2347012841542
Your biggest fan!

I feel very proud because of you Dale! Not only because you are the oldest person to paddle the Mississippi River, but also because at that age, you are still doing the things that you love. It is incredible that you reached, together with Richard Sojourner, the Gulf of Mexico. It seems that you really had fun as you reached the gulf since you also had a swim. I am excited for the release of the documentary film about your expedition.
Hi, good day everyone!I am so proud and happy to be out here sharing Dr. Okosisi work. My ex Husband is really back to me on his knees presenting a ruby rose to beg me to take him back and he was feeling regretful and sorry for leaving me and for causing me pains after the divorce which occurred last year. And this whole miracle happened within 48 hours of Contacting the Great Love Psychic. I am the happiest woman today in this whole wide world. Dr. Okosisi, you really did it..Yes.. It's a miracle and everlasting pleasure and cheerfulness for me and my family today. I am so happy now and I don't know how much to convey my thankfulness and appreciation to you sir. To the whole world, contact him if you need urgent help to get your Ex back or if you wanna fix your broken relationship. Dr. Okosisi spells are guaranteed and effective.
