Before summer is over I've been told I need to float the Yellowstone River.  Grew up floating the Missouri river but that was years ago.  I hear it's a good time and I'm ready to try it.  So, I'm sure you've done it before.  Best place to get in and out.  Spots to avoid?  What should I bring? Tubes or paddle board?

Are there other activities you enjoy on the Yellowstone River?  Aside from floating, what else should I make plans to do?
