Every year since 1999, we have taken an annual road trip to West Virginia to raft down the New River Gorge. Over the years since, it’s turned into much more than just a rafting trip. It’s become a weekend long, all inclusive festival – with (optional) whitewater rafting on Saturday morning.
Thousands of people from across the Mid Atlantic and Northeast have participated in what has been coined “Waynestock” by the raft guides and owners of River Expeditions.
