I'm not an expert... but I play one on the internet.
(saw that as a sig somewhere & thought it was pretty funny)
As I said, my criticism isn't for the guide, but for the fact that nobody else went after them. No safety boater, no other guides...
My reason for stating that originally was just to give a bit of context. If you were on the FD & knew there was someone who had swam 1.5mi without anyone doing anything to rescue her, would you give much respect to the group that lost her?
1.5 MILES down a cold river... 30 to 45 min later...
I find it interesting how different the versions of the story are & wish we could hear the other side, but that's just not likely to happen. (on here anyhow)
