When a couple of young guys from Minneapolis decided to deliver a canoe to their favorite YMCA camp near Eveleth, Minn., they decided to do it the hard way.

Reid Petit and his best buddy "Abe" Ryan Abrahamson portaged the heavy water craft an impressive 300 miles.

Jason Davis goes "On the Road" with this intrepid pair and was there to see the watery reception they got when they arrived at Camp Warren.
