Any pointers for canoeing?

Recommended Posts

WS,

 

Go, get excited have a good time. Listen to your guide. Do what they tell you to do.

 

Falling in the river, wetsuits, life jackets, what to do if the raft flips over, what to do if you encounter backcountry hill folk, or excaped convicts, etc. will all be reviewed by your guide when you get the "This is not Disneyland" speech I referred to earlier.

 

For the later two hazards I suggest you rent "Deliverance" with Burt Reynolds and Jon Voight and "The River Wild" with Meryl Streep. :)

 

Seriously if you go with a reputable outfitter/guide you'll be fine and have the time of your life....but it really isn't Disneyland.
