Thanks Jeff! I posted last year about getting moving water training for myself, but didn't end up doing it so this will be a nice piece of info for me to use as I learn this year.

JImDiane Click on the link in the original post and it will take you to the registration page.
You get to do it from the comfort of your home.

For those wondering about this the hydrometric guages on line is an invaluable tool for river running. Since the guages first came online I have been using them and rerording levels on the rivers I frequent. This link on my comparison trip report on the Head River through QEII Park will give you an idea on how much this can help you plan your trips. http://www.myccr.com/phpbbforum/viewtop ... 08&t=45014
