ABSTRACT
The article recommends not to travel a river alone in Alaska. It is not recommended because accidents can then lead to more serious consequences. If two people are together, the other person can take care of the victim or try to get help. Although one should not take a river trip alone, he can actually paddle alone without being alone. By traveling in one's own canoe or kayak, he can get his own experiences with the water. Paddling with a partner is also a challenging way to travel. When two people have learned to coordinate their paddling in a canoe or kayak, movement can seem effortless.
