    Yes. I might have approached this differently. I don't think I'd want to solo a 17' canoe on my first real WW river trip, I'm pretty sure that I'd want a dry suit on a Canadian river in October and I might also have picked a partner who I'd canoed with before. TBF, Jason wasn't expecting much of what he faced (They were expecting very low water levels, I think they were expecting smaller canoes etc.) and he explains this in his comments.

    I agree with you. The phrase "got away with it" springs to mind. But there were a lot of things that could have gone wrong.

    But I like the guy's style of video, both filming and editing. So I'm glad it worked out for him. Let's hope he's learned from it, eh?

    I've been waiting for a quiet evening in to watch these all in one go, and tonight might be the night. Once I've swapped last weekend's dried tarp and tent for last night's different wet tarp and tent. This place is more like a gear store / drying room with every week! At least I shall have the smell of camping with me whilst watching a paddling exped!

    Thanks for the link. I've happily watched all three and a few more of his videos. Excellent, nicely put together videos and well worth watching.

    Well I think you'll be at home with Jason if that's the case. Jason is an excellent film maker with an attention to detail that I think most of us put to one side once we are "in the moment" on a canoe trip. It takes significant patience and discipline to make sure you devote the time and effort to filming while also focussing on canoeing, camping and staying alive.

    TBH, I still love his "Carolyn Jane" series but he certainly has a knack for film making that most of us can only aspire to.
