Blake DeMaso\nI went on an overnight camping trip on the New River in North Carolina that was pure scenic solitude.\n\n\nWill Harlan\nKayaking section IV of the Chattooga for the first time. It\u2019s still the wildest river in the South.\n\n\nCharles Leonard\nI swam two class V rapids on the Gauley. I don\u2019t remember the rest of the trip, but the beer at the end tasted like heaven.\n\n\nJedd Ferris\nMy wife and I did an overnight rafting trip on Rio Pacuare in Costa Rica. Amazing class IV rapids in the middle of a wild rain forest.\n\n\nMelissa Gessler\nI love taking my kids canoeing on the Shenandoah River.\n\n\nMartha Evans\nFlipped a raft four times on the Ocoee. Our guide said it was a new record.\n\n\nDave Stallard\nFamily rafting trip on the Russell Fork. That was intense.
