The water crossing presentation was well received.

I am not sure if I can with stand the humility needed to present within the club..

They asked me to present during dinner, vs. the normal 4-6pm presentations. So it was a packed house....

I basically showed video, still shots of my water rescue and compared it to a similar depth level water crossing I did in my FJC on the Rubicon and then discussed some go forward advice... Look for river bottom characteristics, if first add strap to back before you drop in, create a wake with steady momentum, etc..

I shared my new mantra which is "only cross once and only if you have to." It is a Mantra not a motto, cause I gotta repeat it to myself....
