Sweet...thanks for the writeup. Considering coming out for a Rogue trip and was thinking about adding the Illinois on afterwards. Glad ya'll got on before the spike happened...I imagine its a different river with that much water.

If you have any interest in hitting it again around 7th-9th of December I'd probably be interested.

Sweet pics.

I also would be interested in a Illinois trip. EM if you are wanting to make it happen, I'd need to talk with the wife... but I can pretty easily schedule my time off and the Illy is my top priority trip this year

Sounds good man...I think my buddy Brian Lee and I would like to do it as long as there is no potential for flows over 2500 or so. I think we are planning on a Rogue trip to warm up, most likely putting on the 2nd or 3rd. I'm driving out from Colorado, one guy from Boise and Brian Lee is from the Portland area. If we put on the 3rd for the rogue and did 5 days (including put in day) that would mean getting off the 7th. Maybe make it easy and drop a vehicle off in Agnes/Oak Flat and head up since its kind of a long drive and minimizing legs of the shuttle would be great.

I think I just friended you on Facebook...unless there is another Uriah Jones in Salem. Feel free to say hello.

Here's a short video from a trip we did last spring. Flows around 2200cfs and dropping. Excuse the language up front, my buddy was pumped after the Green Wall.

It's an awesome river, have fun if you go.

It's only a class three if you don't know how to count to five. It is way more impressive in person and I kayak.

PM sent. I'll see if I have a couple buddy's who might want to join. Agreed, minimizing the shuttle is nice.

Would love to have you with us! Let's get a group email going or something to manage the details.

PM me or EM and we'll get you in.
