Mary Brent Galyean is an expedition chef. She cooks some of the tastiest dishes you’ll ever eat in places that very few people have ever been. MB does it all without electricity and running water, and I had the wonderful opportunity to taste this five star cuisine on the Gauley River in West Virginia. Courses included but were not limited to lamb sliders, salmon and acorn squash poached in spiced honey, and the crowd favorite sweet potato and red apple au gratin.

Gavin McClurg is an adventurer of many disciplines. After briefly racing for the US Ski Team in the early 90s, he moved on to kayaking. A near death experience on a waterfall in Mexico caused him to trade the rivers for the sea, where he lived for 13 years and sailed around the world twice. Most recently paragliding is the activity of choice. He holds the North American record for longest foot launch, where he flew 240 miles in one go.
