How about we pretend this is
a Bygone Era, where you, my doomed guest, are forced to endure
slide after slide from my boring-ass vacation?
JB and Dog sitting
at our campsite, staring longingly at the river below. That would
be the Rogue river, in southern Oregon. We were staying in an
area about 30 miles east of Gold Beach. Which is...uh...somewhere
on the coast. Yeah.
It's real pretty down
there. Hot and sunny, too. And hey, Patrick Warburton lives there. (JB's mom
calls him "Puddy", in a vaguely dreamy voice.) We always
walk by his house on our way to a swimming hole at the confluence
of the Rogue/Illinoise rivers. Last year we talked with him.
I was sort of giggly and retarded. Surprise!
Every year I've gone
to the river with JB, I've wanted to ride in one of the jetboats, and this time I finally did. These
things haul 753 flavors of ass. They have 3 huge Chevy engines
and can scream over something like 6 inches of water. Riding
in one is like sitting on an icecube that is skittering at top
speed over the rapids. SO MUCH FUN!
Myeh - just another
view of the river. Here, have a cashew.
JB. Who is growing
out these weird chops. When did I marry someone from the
Dog is GRINNING.
Also, my hair? I do not know.
Our tent. Doesn't
it look sort of rugged and interesting, like a shot taken on
Everest? ...No? Fine. Give me back the fucking cashews.
This is such a
crappy picture that absolutely does no justice to the beauty
of the coastline down there. Just believe me, it's gorgeous.
But holy balls, it's windy. Like, peel back your lips
and dry your teeth out windy.
After staying at
the Rogue, we headed to JB's family cabin for the weekend. This
is about 20 minutes south of Eugene, and then about 45 minutes
west, on the Umpqua river. Here is Dog, in a canoe! For the first
time! Go Dog! Go Dog! It's your birthday! It's -
My god. I...I...
HOW DID THIS HAPPEN??
Dog + H2O + JB
The cabin, from
the Hook-Handed-Killer perspective.
Or blissed-out Dog? Choose Your Own Adventure!
