White Water Thrills
In the picture on the left, we are in the fourth row from the front, far left side. Mike is the tall dude with the gray hair and I'm the short gal with a round face (next to the rail)--smiles all around.
Jeff, our pilot, was phenomenal. His grandfather started the company, Jerry's Rogue Jets, and Jeff has been driving for 24 years. And boy can he handle a boat. After 30 miles up the river, there are a number of healthy rapids and the large jet boat (carries 35 passengers) splashed through each one. If a rubber tarp had not been available, everyone would be soaked. We were drenched, anyway. (Note: Jerry's Rogue Jet has a fleet of jet boats running up and down the Rogue River.)
