To take your time and be cautious when crossing rivers, but also not so cautious that you will only cross a river if there is a ferry present.

Originally a mindset used in the classic computer game The Oregon Trail, but can also be a way of life.
Don't be foolhardy and just try to ford the river. Take your time, be cautious, caulk the wagon and float it.
