River Rafting

We have already spoken in our notice that the water, and especially of the river - a true opportunity to find a way to civilization. So, you were the gullies in the lowlands, came to a small river or stream, and then - to the great river. Logically, we must move along the river, until a settlement or symptoms of people. But there is often a serious problem - the banks of rivers generally rugged and difficult to move along the long and dangerous.

That is why the most effective way to move down the river - an alloy. Float down the river and faster and more efficiently than to break through the coastal thickets and cliffs. Of course, rafting, and there are many dangers. First, the river may be restless and the appearance of rapids or falls, it will be very difficult to brake in time and get to saving the coast. So we must try in the alloy to keep your head above water in time to hear the noise threshold and close in time to get to shore. From these considerations should not swim in the middle of the river, but still a bit away from the rapids, close to one of the banks.

Second, the water in the river may be too cold to stay in it long enough. Third, many tropical and equatorial major rivers abound with dangerous animals: crocodiles, hippos and even sharks, visiting the river - would be interested in a man adrift.

The flow of rivers can be very tricky, so just swim raft - not a good idea. Need to improve its own stability and buoyancy in the water. On this, at least, take a dry pack, log raft and there. As a maximum - should build a raft. Usually, on the banks of major rivers - the huge amount of dry drift wood - old trunks of trees thrown floods. Such a snag - the perfect material for a raft. The main thing is that wood is not struhla. Connect logs can be different, but as a rule, establish ties and tie up the whole construction of the raft with ropes or vines. If there is an opportunity to further bring down the log raft in some semblance of nails (solid wood, bone, metal) - it should also take advantage of. On the raft we must hold firmly, but never tie yourself to the raft! This is true on the high seas to the raft is not swept. But on the river, tying too dangerous. Better to let the raft take away - to build new than to drag you into a whirlpool of snags or you throw together a raft from the waterfall...

For a long time in water is not recommended, the water must be exhausting and recuperate on the beach. Even if the water is fairly comfortable temperature - still more than two hours to swim is not recommended. Should be selected on the land. If possible, make a fire to keep warm. To quickly kindle a fire, we must always have in your backpack dry material firelighters.
