Portaging sucks. Heli evacs really suck. Dial in your safety plan, know your limits, and practice your safety skills before launching on a remote expedition. The consequences on remote, Class V rivers are no joke and taking the time to practice throw-bagging, agree on hand signals, scout and portage could make the difference between life and death. Learn how to stay safe on a remote kayaking expedition from We Are Hungry, the pros of paddling obscure rivers.
