Mosquitoes. Hordes of them. Thousands, no-millions. As thick as the night sky, they descended like the blood-thirsty vengeance of mother nature herself. For six long hours we suffered through the plague of insects. I tried everything I could think of. We emptied a can of 40 percent Deet repellant. We wrapped ourselves in our hammocks. At one point I even tried burying myself and smearing my body with mud.

Ole Miss students Bowman Hitchens and Rob Treppendahl will take a 60-day journey down the Mississippi River this summer to raise $50,000 for Interfaith Compassion Ministries in Oxford.

This is no ordinary trip. It’s a trip only about 10 people complete a year.

They will start at Lake Itsca, Minn. and end in New Orleans. The first 100 miles of the river are spent completely in wilderness and are mapped by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

Hitchens and Treppendahl said they will not be able to kayak the whole way.

Unlike terrorism and espionage, this threat has very little sex appeal. It doesn’t make the news that often, and when it
