This Is A Kick In The Head

I am dead serious, if you ever find yourself down on the Southern Oregon Coast in the Summer time, you need to go do this.

My dad’s parents took me and my little brother on one of these trips when I was bout ten or eleven years old and I still remember it to this day.

This outfit has three different levels of screaming fun for you to choose from.

We went on the Historic Mail Route run that is 64 miles long and that is the short one. It takes you way the hell up the Rogue river to a very nice little place you can hang out at until it is time to make the run back.  I’m not kidding you when I say that these things haul ass and they skim over water that is mere inches deep. You can see the rocks go flying by underneath.

If you have kids or Grand kids, they will be like me and remember it fifty years later.

  1. Some years ago my Dad’s family had a reunion in Gold Beach, and a bunch of us piled into two boats and went upriver, had lunch, and came back down.

    Yes, a kick in the ass.


  2. I have been on all three of their runs and I have to say the river pilots are the most skilled, big brass balled mo fos! A wild ride to be sure. Better then an E ticket ride at disneyland and much better then sex, cause ya had to hold on!


  3. I’ve taken the jet boat run down the Rogue Five from Grants Pass several times. It’s just about the most fun you can have with your pants on.


Pansies, Trolls and Liberals are urged to flee this place.
