I always wear a pfd with a whistle attached. Three years ago, as a new paddler, the first lesson I learned, was to NEVER gab hold of a stationary object (such as a tree branch) while the current is moving you along. You WILL no doubt, end up in the river. Also, navigate away from strainers where there is a current, because the current can pull your boat in and flip it.
I have always had an obsession with rivers, even as a child. I find it tranquil, yet it stirs my soul to hear the rush of the waters. I also enjoy hiking, biking, climbing, traveling, gardening, cooking, yoga, sewing, and all the arts.
