I love this guy.

Sometimes I think we just don't appreciate our fellow man enough.

It technically "can" be done - except there are many barges and tug boats that one would most likely go under and end up drowning. If not that, you would have to be a really good swimmer to make it across and not get pulled under by the current or end up in a whirl pool.

So, I call bs.

The currents in the MS are what kill you. The MS is turbulent, it's like a washing machine. There are under toes everywhere. I do believe that someone could and has done it. But everyone saying it's not that hard is dumb. When a MS river under toe sucks you under


wtf bro. Toes?

why? Its not hard to believe at all he ended up 3 mi down. There is a % of population that can cross the river. Its not impossible by any means...

ill chug a 40oz and smoke a cig while crossing that river


Alright, Johnny Badass. I'd love to see you swim across the Mississippi. Just know that we're not fishing out your body and are going to let you float out to sea.



Ehhhh, we'll pick him up when he gets snagged on a bend.


But baby steps first. I want to see him chug that forty oz and smoke that cigarette while swimming across False River before I waste a Sunday watching a man disappear from earth in the big one.

False River

that would be harder because there's no current, Miss., just use the current and logs to your advantage, surprised the other guy was only 3 miles down river

My dad used to swim in the river back behind the levy down by Brusly. He said they'd go relatively far out as well. One time the current almost got him and got pulled under. Not sure if he said it was undertow or a ship.

Anyway, he said he never swam in there again

My in laws used to swim it. This is 50+ years ago. they did say they would grab a log or something and swim with the current.

There is alot more traffic on the river now.
