Road signs in rivers

Water sports is good for your health.

You get plenty of mosquito bites, the water showers at you in form of rain during all the canoeing trip, and beer resources usually run out much faster than expected.

No, but really.

I like canoeing. Looking forward to the next summer, especially when they (probably administration of National Parks) have put up nice signs on some of the rivers with names of villages that you are passing by, as well as pointers to places with public camping option.
