Default Kinuseo Falls Tumbler Ridge B.C.

Im feeling the itch to get on the river, these falls are about 2hrs from home. Its about 45min boat ride to the falls from the launch.
It is a very nice trip, I went last year and the water was a clear blue color, now with all the rain its high and dirty, another week or two hopefully it clears up. The fishing is usually excellent in low water.

That would be a sick run. Damn you're making me really miss my boat and I can't be thinking about that when I'm firing up a business venture and buying kits.

Nickelback is good too! Oh, I'd love to knock down one of those moose while I was at it...

We used to get that show on UHF up in Oregon. I'll bet Jon (MrE) probably seen this. My wife is watching it over on her computer and says I remember this show, it's been a long time. lol. She was up in Washington back then.

Keith, it looks like you changed the spelling of your name to protect you from all those 70's fans.

LMAO, I don't suppose the tulips are necessarily the softest landing either. That's a gnarly run. The thing about a boat doing that crazy stuff is you don't have a roll cage either. Now, you know that guy knows his area.

They are amazingly stable, but if you are sliding sideways there is a chance you could roll, it doesnt happen very often. I still have a rock stuck in my pump from jumping gravel bars last year!!

Keith, I was thinking about someone going sideways airborne and landing in some rocks or very uneven ground, I guess you probably wouldn't stay in the boat long, like in a vehicle, so a tumble probably won't matter. I'm always just thinking back to the days when the 3-wheeler about took me out of this life. Jon E. knows what I'm talking about.

Your best bet if your going to crash is make sure your going straight!! Sometimes its fun if there is water on the other side then just keep going, O ya, make sure your holding on!! They are really bottom heavy so it takes quite a bit to flip em over, some guys get them so far up on shore it takes quite awhile to get them back in the water, especially if your in the trees!! Some have winches on them, depends on how wild the driver is.
I had one of those trikes too, how I lived through that ill never know.

Those falls are absolutely beautiful! I have a feeling there is more beauty we need to make plans to explore up there.

Ken, these speed boats are crazy! With V8s developing well over 500 hp... Forest I don't think you could hold on to your beer. Keith I thought you liked a little adventure?

Did the water clear up yet? Not far from home huh? I would be getting the itch too. We are river lovers.
