Since learning to boat with UC Davis Outdoor Adventures in 2011, I have rafted, rowed, kayaked, and occasionally swam many rivers in California, Washington, Oregon, Arizona. Many of these trips were in the cold, rain, and/or snow. Prepare with training, gear, and knowledge of the area so you can safely chase your stoke all winter long. Consider these lessons from retired astronaut Chris Hadfield. See you downstream, Kevin DeLano - Geologist, Boater, Dungeon Master
