“You’re rocking the boat”

This isn’t just a popular children’s rhyme, it’s an admonishment. People have this tendency of acting the fool during fun and exciting adventures, and this remains, to this day, one of the leading causes of accidents while river rafting. While it isn’t totally bad to have fun during adventure trips, one should be aware of everything, including one’s own movements. Our beginning point for our excursion was a Cedar City hotels.

If you’re being led by a river rafting guide or a skydiving instructor, be sure to take note of everything he says, the slightest order can keep you or a member of your team from getting injured. They know the ropes and have a rough idea of how anything can go wrong. You don’t. Give him props for experience.

If you’re alone, or in a group without any experienced guide, play it safe. If you think that the next bend in your rafting trip’s a bit too much for you to handle, it probably is. Don’t do anything you’re not sure you can keep under your control.

 

River Rafting Tips and tricks

Some of the best and most knowledgeable experts in whitewater rafting, skydiving, or any extreme sport agree that one of the greatest things a person can do for any expedition is to prepare and prepare well. Unfortunately, this is usually the part that most people tend to neglect. A bottle of rubbing alcohol, a little Tylenol, a roll of bandages and a bottle of mosquito repellent can really mean the difference between a good and a bad trip. One bad insect or animal bite or a broken bone can be prevented or controlled with any of the above implements.

If you’re preparing for an extreme adventure, always make sure to double check for provisions. The most important of these is the first-aid kit, and no self-respecting professional sportsman would be caught dead without even the most rudimentary kits. If it’s going to be a trip that would span a couple of days or so, always make sure that someone always know where you’re headed, and how long you’ll be away. Always travel in a group: there’s safety in numbers (this isn’t just a myth), and any injury can become an easier burden with a helping hand or two, or three.

And the best advice of them all: in cases of emergency, don’t panic.
