On June 16, 2012, Jim Dreyer embarked with Stuart Picard on a self-supported, cross-country kayaking expedition from Lake Michigan to the Gulf of Mexico in support of New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity.

This 1,430-mile Huck Finn-style adventure took them from Chicago to just past New Orleans, paddling predominantly on the Illinois and Mississippi rivers.  After 45 days on the river, they built a home with Habitat for Humanity in hurricane-stricken New Orleans.

Your support of New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity is greatly needed and appreciated!
