Labor Day Weekend on the Rogue River

I tell you what, the Rogue River sure is purty.  Yeah, we pretty much talked like rednecks the entire weekend while rafting/kayaking the Rogue River in Oregon.  It all started with the phrase, “I tell you what!” and just exploded like a whale on the Oregon coast from there.  I’ve actually had a hard time transitioning back to normal speech since and have almost had to counteract this vernacular by speaking like a California Valley Girl.  Anyway, here is what went down:

5 people, 4 boats, group gear for 14 in Walt the truck

Kayak crew!

Brad, Nelly, Craig navigating Tater the boat through raft chute
