I was rubber tubing the Blackfoot/Clark Fork and got sucked under at one of the stantions under the highway upsidedown. If it wasn't for seeing my daypack that was tied to the innertube circleing above me,I think I would have lost it. I couldn';t tell if I was upside down or rightside up because of the bubbles surrounding me till I saw the daypack. It took two try's before I broke loose of the pressure against my chest. I got lucky,but it was many years before they removed the Dam. The power of the river just sucked me in. So, beware tubers,it can happen to you too,I'm just lucky to talk about it.
