I know this was a long story, but the point is that as sweep boat you can observe a lot more things than in the lead or in the middle of the pack. I've been involved in some crazy chaotic situations in my years as a raft guide/TL/kayaker/bus driver. The main thing to remember is that anything can happen at any time. Be safe out there![/QUOTE]

That's what I am saying. If your TL is also you head guide, this is the best place to be. True, those two aren't synonymous at all companies, but if you are in charge of on river safety, I still say last is best.
I would like to hear some of those crazy bus driver stories, btw!

Talking to an former special ops officer he says "TL should be in the middle. That allows information to flow to the TL and back to the team faster. Sounded solid..
