Day 2: Seven Days of Drifty

Day 2: Monday August 1st While everyone else you know is logging into their company email you are sipping coffee watching the sun light up the sandbar island you camped on last night. You didn’t really notice the wind much yesterday but a high pressure system moved in from overnight and gave you a 6 mph headwind on the river. Shit. But you slept great and got an early start on the river so it doesn’t really matter. The sun is out and the birds are chirping. After a really long debate on the best Jack Johnson song you paddle around a large bend in the river and see a few red canoes beached...

Day 1: Seven Days of Drifty

Day One: Sunday July 31st.  It’s the first day of the actual Drifty! You wake up at 7AM, or maybe 10AM depending on the night before.

Our Adventure Guidelines for the Covid Age

Photo by Andrew Thompson on the Ozark Drifty recon trip. We’re expecting the covid cloud to hang over us for at least another 12-18 months and that’s pretty lame. We love a virtual meet-up as much as the next person but that’s just too damn long to continue sporting a virtual beach scene background while staring at the globe on our desk. Real life camaraderie shan’t die in the covid age; we just need to play by a new set of a rules. It’ll mean more bike rides and less flights, small groups and less cruises, and (here comes our favorite part) more outside and less...
