I’m going on the Middle Fork of the Salmon in one week. In. One. Week. Woohoo!!!! The past few weeks have done wonders to gradually build my anticipation; I have been reading books from the reading list and ensuring that I have all the gear recommended on the gear list to make for a successful trip.
I love it when I hear guests say “Well, this was NOT what I expected!” because they are always pleasantly surprised at how fun a multi-day river trip can be. I decided to compile my most commonly-heard misconceptions about multi-day whitewater trips from guests and explain them here. Enjoy!
You booked your trip this last Winter, and the time to depart is at hand! You could just go out there and wing it, or you could try out these easy, at home exercises to get ready for your big adventure!
