Take a mash up of David Bowie tunes, craft spirits, kayaking, and Whiskey Rebellion history and you have Rebel Rebel Float Trip. I planned and hosted the themed paddle for the Mon River Towns Program. The trip was inspired by a Minnesota float in which a play unfolded along the river. We adapted to fit our own regional history and a “David Bowie twist” to arrive at Rebel Rebel. This event gave me the opportunity to use what I learned about experiential travel while taking the Edge of the Wedge course in Newfoundland and Labrador in 2016. The result was much greater than a 30-person kayaking trip. Instead, we provided a memorable, one-of-a-kind river experience. Not only this, but a quarter of participants surveyed were first-time kayakers, and nearly 90 percent hadn’t been on the Monongahela River previous to the trip. One of the goals was to get new people to the water, and the event theme did just that.
