There's no holding back--on this trip, all of your senses are engaged. From the first sips of wine and the feeling of sun on your skin to the thrill and shock of jumping into the Futaleufu during the flip drill, everyone is in full contact with the environment. "Every breath, every step, every heart beat is so alive," said Chris McGee after she jumped into the river four times. Maybe that vibrancy is what pulls people back to this trip again and again: Four of the ten travelers on our journey were veterans, returning for another week of fun on the Fu.
