How do you or participants typically train for the Driftless 250?

The description for your event says you “get lost” and it’s “unscripted travel.” What does that mean in practice?

Our work days and even vacations our days can be very tightly packed, planned and scheduled. What does it feel like to go on a trip that’s purposely unscripted? Does it take people awhile to unwind and adapt to your schedule?

What have been some of the highlights or favorite moments for you from past trips?

Group-based exercise has become more popular in recent years, with the rise of Crossfit, Soul Cycle, Orange Theory and Peloton, among others. Do you see yourselves fitting into this kind of trend that builds camaraderie while exercising?

There are a lot of Wisconsin brewery or bar stops during your trip. Do you bike or canoe to breweries or both?

Driftless 250 pioneer Andy packing for the canoe portion of the trip.

What’s your favorite beer stop on this trip?

Tell me about your idea for the Beer Runner Challenge for the Driftless 250 (even though there’s no running)!

You both start and end your trips with a party… and you keep it mostly a surprise. What can you tell us about these events?

How can people sign up for this trip?

Anything else to add?
