Alaska River Guide (9780882404974);1993, p34
The article offers a couple of tips for ensuring safety in exploring rivers in Alaska. The most important element in safe boating is to recognize one's own limitations: accept that there are rivers one cannot run until he has the skill and experience to do them safely. Going on a river with an experienced guide may be one of the best ways to learn about the rivers. Before putting in on any river, go over safety, technique, and rescue methods as a group. Make sure everyone is comfortable with the difficulty of the river.
