Preparing for Kayaking, Canoeing & Paddling

This time of year has got me thinking about the water this summer and upcoming river adventures. The mighty Yellowstone River is my favorite place to be in the summer and I can't wait to float it once again. 1 thing I always keep in mind is that the Yellowstone is a very powerful river and must be respected. That means preparing myself and my equipment ahead of time. Preparation is essential for safe & fun river trips, and now is the time to prepare yourself and your equipment. Here are a few tips and handy links I've put together to assist.
