It's not like Alaska isn't wilderness - it mostly is. But most Alaskans don't live in the wild. They live on the edge of the wild in towns with schools and cable TV and stores and dentists and roller rinks sometimes. It's just like anyplace else, only with mountains and moose.

Paddle Float Re-Entry Roll
A while back I wrote about teaching a paddle float re-entry roll as a basic skill, my thoughts are it is not a difficult skill to learn, and once learned it is a better solo rescue than the standard paddle float rescue. A recent article on Paddling.net brought up the same subject. It's worth a read.
