I cannot stress enough the importance of this.
I am a newbie - starting this year, got all the gear, and thought that I would run Shoshone at high water. I had been a passenger through this run and also did it in a ducky. We flipped in less than a minute because I "Thought" I knew, somebody else came past us at the take out and really stressed the line that we should have taken, and that they would have led us through if we/I had asked.
Dumbass me still has the scabs and the bruises from a month ago. Wife is extremely wary of getting into the raft with me again, etc....
