Over the course of our 72 Hours in the Lowcountry of South Carolina, we cruised around Charleston to meet hometown hero Rodney Scott, the tireless entrepreneur Brooks Reitz, and badass waterman-slash-walking encyclopedia Cyrus Buffum, plus countless others forging their own path in the Palmetto State. Along the way, we put all our newest gear through the wringer—push-starting a vintage Land Rover, plucking oysters from the mud of a Revolutionary War battle field, and working up a sweat in a world-renowned BBQ pit. Pour yourself some spiked sweet tea (see below) and dive right in.
