This is a cool video, mark freeman is crazy i think.

Only 1 more dam to go on the rogue, not counting Lost Creek.

Cool video but it didn't look to bad but the first to do it is cool to be able to say.

Agreed. I've been in a drifter going through a lot hairier stuff than that, altho we'd been through it before.
Thrill of the unknown is where it's at, I'm thinking. lol

This has absolutely nothing to do with the intended post...come on.

I agree that it's not THAT hairy...but, definitely, the factor of the unknown adds some depth. However, being very new to rowing a boat, I'd say...it's definitely not something I would do lol.

I think you guys are missing the point here. The fact that the dam no longer stands in the way of migrating fish, is the real "hair" here.

Just thought I would mention that two people died going through that stretch right after the dam came out. Just because it does not look hairy does not mean its not. There are a lot of unknowns after a dam is removed and unfortunately some people found out the hard way!
