Considering what both the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers look like. I don't really know.
I'll give this guy the common sense to get out of the water in the dangerous/prohibited areas.

How things get if the poo hits the blades is anyone's guess about the function of the lock and dam system here. I would hope, if possible that the entire series of them would be cranked open
Terrible for those down river yes. But in the long run it beats a random range of silted up river lakes come impassable quick mud flats in time.

Just a little early afternoon post apocalyptic day dreaming.馃槈

Travelling down the Mississippi requires a minimum of 16 portages so durability is a good question. Plus it would require a minimum of 45+ days to do that distance and you wouldn't be able to carry that much food to last the entire trip.

use two of them, one you pull behind you with your supplies. portage would the be major hang up.
Thats an interesting option, but would it not interfere with finer control movements?

I've only towed another canoe once, and it was across a lake. All the rivers I've ever paddled (many moons ago) were pretty benign. As long as you didn't have to face any rough water stretches, you'd be ok.

Given the width of the river and lakes that feed it, would it be easier to tow a kayak, a canoe or rubber life raft? My limited experience in the past involved white water rafting and we towed nothing.
