Have you ever looked up different types of knots? Wow. Mind boggling. I am going to attempt to narrow down the types of knows that we use for paddling and canoeing, and for loading our gear. I would love to have a knot tying exercise sometime with our campers too. Which do you use?
Okay, really, I have only ever done (maybe) a class III rapid while canoeing the Buffalo River in Arkansas or the Lower Mountain Fork in Oklahoma. And that still might be stretching it. But I do want to raft some big rapids soon and have been looking at rivers around Texas. Anybody know some great class IV’s in Texas? I guess most would say the Rio Grande, but I am open to suggestions. Well, onward to learning about the “Scale of River Difficulty” according to the American Canoe Association
