With all the cool weather of late, it's clear we're finally making the leap from summer to fall—which is reason enough to put a bounce in your step. If crisp autumn air in the great outdoors always gives you a little extra lift, get a jump on the season with this Adventure: a two-night weekend whitewater rafting and camping trip in the West Virginia wilderness.
On the weekend of October 19, hop on over to River Expeditions in Oak Hill, West Virginia, where our team of LivingSocialites will be waiting to check us in for the weekend any time after 6 p.m. on Friday. Choose from four different lodging options: bring-your-own-tent; bring-your-own-sleeping-bag (and stay in a friend's tent); rent your own tent-on-platform for two; or make some new friends in a shared rustic cabin. Then dive into the action with a meet-and-greet happy hour at the on-site Red Dog Saloon, complete with two drink tickets and piles of chicken wings.
The next morning, we'll enjoy a continental breakfast before heading out on a full-day whitewater rafting trip over the Lower New River's world-class rapids, with lunch provided on the river. Wetsuits are available to rent on site. During our trip, we'll gather under the 876-foot-high New River Gorge Bridge for a front-row seat to the 33rd annual Bridge Day Festival, where we'll see rappelers and base jumpers taking the plunge.
From there, we'll meet back up at the saloon for a video-viewing party (with two drink tickets each for beer or wine) to watch all the thrills and spills, before a hearty barbecue dinner with live bluegrass music and an exclusive after-party.
After a continental breakfast on Sunday, we'll pounce at the chance to purchase additional discounted activities, a second whitewater rafting trip—on the Lower or Upper Gauley and experience the final day of Gauley Season—and a range of outdoor excursions. Choose among mountain biking, paintball, catwalk, zip-lining, and horseback tours. We've already made it over summer's final hurdle, but we can still jump at an outdoor Adventure that's bound to be loads of fun.
