What is this?

The Drifty is a 7-day, unscripted adventure that takes place in the beautiful Driftless Region of Southern Wisconsin.

It’s like a triathlon, kinda. There is some biking, but no running. There’s camping, there’s no route, and you only have to swim if you fall out of your boat. So, nothing like a triathlon.

An incredible trip where you’ll learn more about yourself than you anticipate. | You’re never technically far from civilization but it feels like you’re in your own private nature preserve. | The perfect combination of relaxation and exertion.
– Erik, 3rd Edition

My friends called me crazy and then they wished they would have signed up.
– Sara, 5th Edition

“Too many crazy stories to count. We spent one night on a hippie commune and partied til 3:00am with them. Another day we biked up to a diary farm to try fresh cow milk and got a private tour, A LOT of fresh milk & ended the night at the farmer’s cousin’s bar. It was utterly ridiculous.”
– Nick, 3rd Edition

The Driftless 250 is what I imagine going through the laundry is like. You get kind of dirty, then get sort of wet, then you kind of get the shit kicked out of you for a little bit but at the end you have this really warm and fuzzy feeling and you want to do it again. 
– Walker, 1st Edition 

“The Drifty 250 is an opportunity to live life at a different pace. How fast or slow you want that to be is up to you, but there will be boats, bikes, beer, and bald eagles.”
– Nate, 5th Edition

“This event taught me its okay to rely on the kindness of strangers (in fact, it might be better to embrace it).”
– Brennan, 6th Edition

“It is a week to completely unplug and to be in nature while testing how “outdoorsy” you really are. It is the perfect trip if you’re ready to do something a little more intense than tent camping at a camp site but are not ready to commit fully to Bear Grylls.”
– Blake, 5th Edition
