Recap: Wild was, well, Wild!

Wild was, well, Wild!

Love and Gratitude to all our our Explorer Chicks!

Holy Smokes! Who else left Wild with sore cheeks from the raft and sore cheeks from laughing entirely too much? 🙋‍♀️

Over 50 women joined us this past weekend at West Virginia Wild for an epic weekend of camping, rafting, Pecan Bars, Bonfire Brews, laughter, rap songs, river carnage, a little rain, Sophia Danenberg inspiration, and SHE-Nanigans!

So many of you thanked me for having the idea of women only adventure travel and bringing us all together. Now, stick with me…

Unlike all of our other trips topping out at 12 Explorer Chicks, Wild was designed to gather as many women as possible for a weekend of adventure. This meant myself and the team was only able to have brief conversations with everyone between the “Behind the scenes magic,” whereas we get to develop lasting friendships with Explorer Chicks on our traditional small group trips.

So why was I receiving all the love and gratitude? Simple: It’s the Explorer Chick community. Even without the team’s direct and constant interaction, the Explorer Chick experience thrived, hard. Proof that this crazy ass dream manifested a few years ago at the bottom of a wine bottle lives and breathes. It’s bigger than me. It’s real. It has taken on a life of it’s own built by your stories, laughter, and wisdom.

Thank you to the entire Explorer Chick Sisterhood for your love, kindness, and support of each other and your generous dash of crazy that keeps it ridiculously fun. You are our lifeblood. And I am damn proud to call myself an Explorer Chick. 💗

I have our hilarious rafting video posted over on YouTube. Don’t judge our YouTube Channel. It’s not our specialty 🤣

I also have uploaded all of the rafting pictures to our Facebook Album. Check it out!

We are still reposting and sharing your pics from the Wild Weekend! Please continue to use #explorerchickwild.

REVIEWS! I have had the pleasure of reading your personal recaps from Wild on your Facebook feed – Seriously, my favorite past time! If you could do us a solid and share those with future Explorer Chicks, we will give you a big ol’ hug next time we see you!

We have 3 channels to copy and paste your review:

  1. Facebook
  2. Google
  3. Our Website

Lastly, we had some of our upcoming Shop merchandise available for purchase at Wild! It seems the Mountain Soul tees and tanks are a hit! Plus, they are unbelievably soft. I am personally stoked on the quality of the material and print on everything, and I’m not just saying that to sell more. My goal for our apparel is for it to be your favorite and worn for years to come keeping it out of our landfills.

Oh, and we leaked some of our upcoming trips during our Thursday night Trivia game. Look for new trips and our first Adventure Release Party this July!

Cheers to boundless Adventures in the Great Outdoors, Explorer Chicks!
