Early in August 2012, Dave Cornthwaite started on the long journey to attemp to swim 1000 miles down the Missouri River, South Dakota.  After almost two months and 800 miles of swimming he is nearing the end in St Louis.

Swim1000 is part of a muchlarger project that Dave is involved in called Expedition1000, in which he is attempting to complete 25 seperate journeys of 100 miles or more without the use of any motorised transport with the aim of raising £1,000,000 for charity.

I only came across this story the other day but have been reading up about it with such admiration for all Dave and his support team are undertaking. You can follow his blog to see his progress and read some of the fun things they've been doing and people they've met along the way.
