    Rogue River


    Do people inner the Rogue much @DerekJohnson ? I never thought of it as a "lazy river" but more of a spot for whitewater activities.
    You definitely don't want to tube the Rogue. Very rough for tubing
    I do the Green Wall upside down and backward on an air mattress.








    I really did that in a dream once.

    More specifically I woke up from the dream right as I hit the lead in, kind of like how you wake up from falling in a dream.

    There’s nothing quite like loading up on breakfast tacos at Taco Taco Cafe and floating through Hill Country with a cooler full of beer.

    @IPukeOregonGrellow so back in good old days of river floats, one had to buy big old tractor tire inner tubes from Les Schaub, get some free beef, and fill them up at a gas station (or have an air compressor you could run off your car). The new technology is far, far better.

    At any rate, how did that work back in the old day in Oregon. Did you have to say fill my tube, Duck?

    The river in Missoula is great for tubing.

    I’ve swum in the Clark Fork @RoadDawg55 where it seemed like good floating.

    In MD/wva there's the harpers ferry thing which is quite fun.


    But I have to do a nostalgic shout out. We had the big wooden raft with the monitor speakers on the salt lake back in college.

    Guitar center warranty ...they always take it back and replace free of charge no questions.

    Blew probably like 10 lol.

    It's kind of sad that I live in the HQ town of Les Schwab and I will never buy tires there.

    I'm Team Discount Tire all the way.

    Not sure I follow @dannarc

    I feel like Les Shwab is the go to for off brand, shitty tires.

    I run Michelins (excluding my Bridgestone snow tires) and Discount is the place for the premium name brands.

    Overpriced shitty tires. Pay a 20-30% per tire yocharge for that amazing Schwab service that never really is that amazing.

    I needed an account somewhere close by to be a good farmer so I went with them. Next set of car or truck tires will be from somewhere else, most likely one of the backyard tire shops run by Mexican dudes.

    No love for the Duwamish or the Green. What do you have against raw sewage and floating bodies, guys?

    And I second the vote for Discount Tire. Schwab has really gone downhill and the rest are ripoff artists.

    My cousin used to jump off a 40 foot railroad trestle over the CF. As a middle aged adult looking back 30 years, it seems insane.

    Now he's a degenerate jailbird who barely sees his son...

    Big O is good.

    They could have ripped Bill off a couple times, but didn't. I refer to myself in 3rd person because I'm psychotic.

    River gurgling is a shitty way to sell the couch.

    I had some Big O tires once back in Utah @Fire_Marshall_Bill . Fucking terrible in the snow. Huge improvement once I got some Michelin LTS Mud/Snows.
