Yesterday, it was announced that I would be the 3rd crew member (of 12) for this year’s Hell Hike and Raft. What is that? Glad you asked. Hell Hike and Raft is a 6 day backpacking and white water rafting adventure. Last year, for the first edition, 12 social media influencers and bloggers backpacked through the Seven Devils mountain range and whitewater rafted down the Snake River through Hells Canyon.
How it started: Parker from Americas Rafting Company emailed Adam from Hiking The Trail with a simple idea: get a group of outdoor adventure enthusiasts who are active on social media together and take them on an epic adventure. Thus, the first Hell Hike and Raft. The 2014 Adventure was such a huge success that Epic Social Adventures was formed as an organization dedicated to recreating the Hell Hike and Raft experience. And so, Hell Hike and Raft 2015!
Here’s a video from last year’s trip:

As you can guess, I’m pretty excited about this. An additional amazing thing is that Hell Hike and Raft is the week following the Outdoor Retailer Summer Show, so I might be getting up to 2 weeks of unadulterated outdoors bliss – hell yeah!
