HERE'S THE ONLY "CRITICAL RACE THEORY" THAT IS TRUE WITH RESPECT TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA


Recommended Posts

6 Owl Creek Ln, Shoup, ID 83469

 

Not exactly the best place for farming or ranching but this is what folks call, "River of No Return" or the Salmon River in Central Idaho. Travel further west of this place and it quickly becomes no mans land. No homes, no power lines, no abandoned homes, no signs, nothing... for miles on end

They called it the River of No return, because rapids on the river (the Salmon River) because rapids made rowing upriver impossible. But now there are a couple of super powerful boats that can go upriver.

I have never been there.

They call it the "Frank Church Wilderness Area" or "The Frank".

People who try to live there and leave say that they have been "Franked".

Yes, Jet boats can take you up certain portions of the river depending on water volume. Have done this journey before. The primary company behind this is up for sale and has been for awhile. Not looking very optimistic that someone will pony up the 3 million to take over the property/business.

I saw a video of the trip. Quite impressive.  The announcers on this type of show are singularly annoying.  "Wait and see what dangers await Mike on his trip upriver: will be make it?"  And now we see Suzie over the mountain  training her new pack mule. They say he's a biter."

Strange thing about humans is that when they take pride in living a certain place, they exaggerate the conditions. They overplay how dangerous the river is, how cold it is in the winter, and how hot it is in the summer, etc. Yes, the Salmon river is more adrenaline inducing than something that you would find in Georgia and Florida. However, there are only 3 or 4 places on the stretch from Salmon (city of Salmon) to Riggins (where the river ends) where one really is in any kind of danger. What is not exaggerated is the isolation. Few places in the lower 48 can come close to how remote it is.

When I spent summers here, we worked growing and maintaining fruit trees and such. For leisure, played in the river, fished in the summer.  It was a bit boring for a teenager but I created memories that few did.

Funny, but here in Mirabeau's corner of Texas, the Neches River is known as the River of No Return.

 

Quite a few liberals have been "invited" by the locals to go hiking in the dense forests along the river, but, for some strange reason, that is the last anyone sees of the liberals.

"Deliverence?"
