Traveling the Yangtze river (1 Viewer)

I am currently thinking about getting a little boat and going as far down the Yangtze as I can stand. I'll have a 1 year work/residency permit with likely 9 months left on it. But jail in China kinda scares me, especially in some of the more rural places along the Yangtze. Can anyone offer any advice on the legality of doing this.

Also if anyone has any longer term river travel experience your input would be appreciated. I've done some river travel in Texas but only weekend trips.

    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.

    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
