Need ideas for a Man Up destination trip
Every year, buddies and I get together for an adventure trip, doing things that sane people only do when they're coaxed into it by other friends. "I'll do it if you'll do it..."
This year, we're thinking about whitewater kayaking. Most of us have done WW rafting (Gauley, Tuolomne) and sea kayaking, but no whitewater river kayaking.
Can you guys offer some recommendations on destinations? We want to do something that's far more exciting than a run-of-the-mill experience for urban weekend warriors. Most of us are former military, and we love the adrenaline.
We're coming from all across the country, but mostly DC and Boston areas. Proximity to a major airport is important. Being able to combine with another adventure is important too. I was thinking about paragliding, hang gliding, and/or mountain biking to round out the weekend, and if you have ideas about those too, I'll take them!
Would love to hear your ideas.
