Here I Go Again


This is how the waiver begins for next July's Yukon 1000 canoe and kayak race.

The animal hazards are a bit different then the WaterTribe Challenges:
Animal hazards are common. Among these risks are bears, Moose, wolves, wolverines, beavers, bees, hornets, wasps, ants, ticks, mosquitoes and black fly. Other dangerous or annoying critters, too numerous to mention, are also in abundance. As an expert you are expected to know how to counter these attacks and it is expected that you have an adequate first aid kit and that you know how to use it.

Mosquitoes will be present. Mosquitoes can carry diseases including but not limited to West Nile Virus. And there have been documented cases of large animals dying from mosquito bites alone due to loss of blood. As an expert you are expected to be able to deal with hordes of mosquitoes approaching the size of small raptors and avoid or cope with other animals.

You can can read the whole waiver here. IT'S GONNA BE A BLAST!

Race registration is now open, KiwiBird and I will be officially registered soon.
