life's short

Just spread my dad's ashes at store gulch on the Illinois river in Oregon...Now thats a die hard rafter. He had been rafting since 1969, first raft was a army green "10 man hypalon" that he bought at andy and baxs in portland, oregon. I helped him make his first frame out of "Heavy duty marine plywood" with ammo cans and a bail bucket tied to a rope. His first run was the Illinois and was in love with it the rest of his entire life. Made me think. Enjoy it while you can.
