Great work on the oars! Man you guys have some pure water up there... no silt like our rivers. I am jealous.

Holy cramped legs Batman, four rocket boxes in the rowers compartment! Looks like you had a great flow and great weather. You made Green Wall look easy. I was planning on getting out Mat 4-5, but it looks like the river is done for the year.

You might be ok for May 4th. Will be low but doable. But you would probably want more than two days and a 14' or smaller boat...

Nice video. I had a mid may trip planned based on the last couple years however; it doesn't look like its going to happen this year. If your interested in the Illy check out Will's videos on youtube. Don't know the guy but used his videos and website for intel to run it a couple years ago. If your a Oregon and/or west coast river person the Illinois has to be on your short list...good times

What is the width of the boat in the video, may I ask?

Thanks

Glad you could put the stuff to use. Just as a heads up I moved the contents of OregonRafting.org to the blog on Ashland, Oregon's Indigo Creek Outfitters: Rafting, Tours, & Vacations. It's not as well organized, but the trip reports are here: Trip Report Archives - Indigo Creek Outfitters

I'm not sure... It's a 1993 Avon Adventurer and at least a couple inches wider than most other 14' boats.
