Illinois River

I'd like to go down the Illinois River in Southern Oregon sometime this June. The best time to go is 'March through to mid-May', according to the review on AmericanWhitewater.org, so if it doesn't happen this year I'd like to find other people interested in going down it next year (2017). I'd be int...

Lower Klamath River

Hi, I'm heading down the Lower Klamath River this weekend (Saturday 28th of May through Sunday 29th of May, 2016). It's a scenic stretch of river at the top of Northern California. My rough and flexible itinerary is to park at Dillon Creek Campground and then hike / hitch-hike upriver (the Bigfoot S...
