Rafting the Grand Canyon is a river trip above all other river trips. A few members of the U.S. Men's Rafting team decided to attempt to set a new speed record; 34 hours, for a trip that's typically done over the course of weeks or months, The Time Travelers, from Gnarly Bay Productions, Forest Woodward, and Brendan Leonard tells their story. It's filled with months of training, a look at building the boat by hand, and the agonies of leaving family and friends. Find more on the story from REI and Chacos
