Vote for Stookesberry and Korbulic as Nat Geo Adventurer of the Year People’s Choice
Posted on November 19, 2015

It’s been a week of high fives and hell yeahs at the Live Your Adventure blog for Eddie Bauer expedition kayakers Ben Stookesberry and Chris Korbulic who—along with Pedro Oliva and Benny Marr—took home the hardware as National Geographic Adventurers of the Year for their first descent of the Grand Canyon of the South Pacific in Papua New Guinea. On Monday we profiled their accomplishment with the Red Bull Media House teaser from the upcoming flick about the descent and Tuesday we published an exclusive gallery from the stunning 13-day, 13-gorge run. Red Bull ran an extensive article on the mission and National Geographic followed up with a Q and A session with Stookesberry on the brutal mission on the Beriman River. Ben and Chris did their part, now it’s your turn to show your stoke—vote for them in the race for the People’s Choice Award. Vote early and often at adventure.nationalgeographic.com. —LYA Editor
