Thursday Getaway: Do What You Love

At this point in the week, we suspect you're in the mood to get out and enjoy the world outside of your computer screen, but it's Thursday, and you can't–yet. Don't despair! We've got just the thing to make you smile, daydream or draw inspiration from for your weekend, which is just around the corner.


Amber Shannon has been boating the Grand Canyon for nine years, trying to work her way from the baggage boat to a dory, while spending as many days possible in current. In the words of her mentor: "It's definitely easier to get a PhD than it is to get a dory here in the Grand Canyon."

We suggest you take five minutes out of your day to watch In Current and get a better understanding of why this job takes so many years of practice and paying dues to land. And if we may suggest one last thing; take a bit of advice from the way Amber and do what you love.
