Talk about the herd mentality. First dude goes in n' falls over in a high and fast current.
Nearly swept away. So everyone follows.
I'd certainly love to be the guy who made it across so to speak. I know quite a few
made it across in the video. I mean, for my own level of skill, experience, and
forethought. (all are probably very low) I'd be in a group approaching that spot
and immediately start looking for the widest (lower avg water level) spot to cross
(lower speed water flow too) even if I hadda go a quarter mile either way. (know
the depth of the water compared to the height of the lowest opening on the intake)
Dunno. I just woulda not tried that spot, that day. Too nervy.
