What’s Our Burden as More Experienced Kayakers?

Photo: By Bryan Hansel.

Should you offer help or advice to strangers you find that are out of their depth on the water? That’s a question that Minnesota-based kayaking guide and instructor, Bryan Hansel asks in his latest blog post on PaddlingLight.com .

What do you do if they don’t listen? What if they are at risk? Or, is it even your problem?

As a former outdoor educator and trip leader, I  understand the question. Life is full of risks. We take them. We learn. Sometimes we don’t. The answer is different in each circumstance.

Bryan’s piece is  a good read. It’s followed by some discussion.  See: What’s Our Burden?
