The Wild Ones is a new series from filmmaker Logan Bockrath and Adventures on the Gorge about people who left the comfort of more traditional paths for the unknowns of life on the river. In this episode, we meet Jo Beth, a rafting guide on the New River, who paid her dues washing wetsuits at the crack of dawn. Now, Jo is part of the rafting family. As she says, “No one else from your previous life—before you start doing this—really understands what it is you're doing. You can't really talk to them about it.” You can follow Bockrath on Instagram here.
