Mississippi kayak trip completed by Woodbridge trio
Three school friends have completed an 80-day trip down the length of the Mississippi River in America.
Matt Fraser, Harry Hogg and Sam Norman paddled three kayaks for 2,300 miles (3,700 km) from the river's source at Lake Itasca to the Gulf of Mexico.
The Suffolk trio, all 22 years old, went to Woodbridge School and managed to raise £16,000 for the Help For Heroes charity.
They trained for the journey but are not members of any kayaking clubs.
Mr Fraser said: "The best bit was the people we met along the river - everyone was so kind to us and the hospitality was incredible.
"The worst bit was the weather - being English we weren't used to the heat and humidity and the massive thunderstorms were pretty terrifying some nights.
"It hurt at times, but we had all trained, so we were able to keep going and set up our camp every night."
Mr Norman said: "I think there's always another adventure round the corner.
"Once you've done one of these trips it's a bug you catch very quickly, because there's nothing like travelling a county at six miles-an-hour."
