River Safety Talk

Risk is inherent to any outdoor adventure. The safety talk at the beginning of a rafting trip is a very important preparation for a safe and fun experience. This is good stuff – “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” – it does not have to be boring though. John McDermott, head river honcho has given hundreds of safety talks in his 25 year guiding career and he knows a thing or two about how to capture his audience and how to convey the river’s friendliness and how much he loves it.
