Explorer Chick Wild Weekend
We Got WILD!
Cool Shit in Cool Places with Cool Chicks!
The Explorer Chicks showed up in full force for our first ever Wild Weekend June 9-12! We kicked things off with a Friday night dinner and a super inspiring talk from Stacey Kozel. Stacey shared her story of thru hiking the Appalachian Trail against all the odds. Her sense of humor and frankness truly had us all laughing and “Wow’ed.”
On Saturday, 40 women filled 5 rafts to venture down the New River. The entire bus held onto Zach’s every word as he briefed us on Safety during our shuttle! Because, we were soooo concerned about safety… 😍😍😍
On the river we jumped 10 feet from a boulder, floated swimmer rapids, took on Surprise, and tackled 2 Class 5 Rapids. And, guess what? No one fell out! #BoatsAndHos #TeamShortBus
After our raft trip, we gathered in the pavilion for BBQ and to watch the World Debut Movie of the Explorer Chicks running the river!
On Sunday, Explorer Chicks embarked on guided adventures including Rock Climbing, SUP, and Ziplining. While other Explorer Chicks embarked on their own hiking and mountain biking adventures. We loved hearing the stories of encouragement and support from the women terrified of heights, but still rock climbed and rappelled. #Sisterhood
Then there was the blob! Pure entertainment, whether you were flying or spectating!
Every night the Explorer Chicks camped under the stars at the top of the mountain. Mother Nature blessed us with hot days and cool nights! The bonfires were hot. The chocolate, maybe a little melted 😝 The fireside chats perfection. #WhatAboutBob
