Water barriers

During the journey often deal with various water obstacles and overcome them. These hedges include streams, small and large rivers, lakes, swamps, rapids, waterfalls and glaciers. Each body of water - it has its own peculiarities, its own methods of speeding up and overcome. We touch briefly each type of reservoirs.

Streams. Usually not very deep, not broad, but they are usually very cold and fast flowing water. On this, the best way to get across the creek - is to find a tree that fell across and connecting the two banks. Especially because these creeks and streams are most often found in the foothills and forests, so trees, including fallen there in abundance. The second way - to cross a stream in the shallows, on boulders. But remember, the stones can be slippery! You can also go mountain streams and small rivers to wade - in shallow areas. If you are not alone - rough mountain streams better overcome in conjunction, joining with a partner a long rope.

In medium and large rivers also should look for a ford. If there is a ford in the vicinity - will have to swim. If the special baggage you do not - do not bother with the construction of the raft, because most rivers are not so wide and they can cross by swimming. Only necessary to select narrower area, but at the same time with a quiet passage, without whirlpools, snags itp According to this, it is better to choose the place for the crossing with steep cliffs, it is better to recognize the character of the river. In addition, under the cliff - the greatest depth. Having overcome the deep and rapids area, it will be easier to get to the sloping shore, where much smaller.

Lakes are different. Small and medium easier to get around. Large may be crossed by swimming. But to cross the very large lakes - it is better to build a raft, or take any other craft.

Crossing the swamp - it is very dangerous. If it is possible to bypass the swamp - go around! Only in extreme cases go through the swamp. We must wield a long flat sixth, to feel the bottom front of him. Good technique jumping over bumps. Remember! Where the swamp trees, shrubs - there usually is a solid base.

You should also use the marshes interesting technique - to do something in the likeness of skis or snowshoes. The aim is clear - to distribute the load on the body surface in five to six times greater than the area of shoe soles. So much harder to fall into the quagmire. These marsh skis are made of wicker, willow, good in the marshes full. Oval ring made of a thick rod. The area of the oval plaited finer vine. The resulting design placed on the legs. Mounts to standard footwear can be made from the same thin vines or rope.
