Watch These Two Guys Paddle 315 Miles from the Source of the Hudson to Brooklyn

Jesse Hooker and Cosmo Piefl are two modern day outdoorsmen who recently escaped the urban confines of Brooklyn to set upon an explorer’s mission: navigating the entire Hudson River by kayak. Along their way through the flora and fauna of New York State, the two men crashed into choppy waters, paddled through an evergreen landscape, and lived off rationed salami.

The trip down the Hudson River took 17 days and covered 315 miles, much of which is documented here in this video.
