Something wealthy people will often tell you is that you should spend more money buying memories than buying things and one memory we think is worth having is a Grand Canyon Dory Trip [$4,500]. Tackle 300 miles of some of the most powerful white water on the planet the old-school way, in a wooden boat. Spending 2 weeks navigating the Colorado River through a mile-deep canyon, gazing up at 2.5 billion years’ worth of the earth’s crust on a dory that launches you off the lips of roiling rapids turns you into a geologist, a waterman, and a more humble human being.
