Video: To the Coast for a Dollar

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) – It does involve the water and even boats, but it’s not your typical summer vacation.

Hayden Hughes and James Keagy are Juniors at James Madison University in Virginia, and they’re kayaking to the coast.

It was all part of a bet. Hughes says,”My friend bet me a dollar that I couldn’t. I think he’s getting nervous now. I’m almost half way there. So he’s probably going to owe me a dollar.”

Hayden and his friends have already been down several rivers, but now they’re down the Tombigbee to Daulphin Island.

They hope to reach their destination by August 4
