That Mad Accursed River

I’d love to go do this, as John Milligan says, before I don’t.

There are problems with that: I tend to fall out of boats. A lot. My wife Michelle says she’ll go with me, but only in a complete body wetsuit with a plug-in heater.

I do have one thing going for me: I can pass the Ed Norton Test necessary to get a job alongside him in the sewers: I can float. So maybe, just maybe — when the kids are older, our oldest in is Scouts and the Scouts want to go do this — I’ll get to go.

Until then, I’ll live vicariously through Alan Murray’s wonderful story and photographs on the adventure he, John, Mike and others had rafting down the Snake River in Wyoming. You can read the story and see his photos here. Enjoy.
