Is absolutely true. I didn't even think about the Smith/Umpqua/Reedsport connection. To think that I'm only 50 miles from there, too. I'm soooo embarrassed (blush).
Don't forget that there are two or three Smith Rivers in Oregon too (got a
cat on my lap so I can't get up and check MacArthur...). The one that's a
tributary of the McKenzie was the subject of a very adventurous river run in
the days long ago when McKenzie River drift boats were evolving. Another
debouches into the Umpqua near Reedsport, and was named for the same Smith
as the river in California: Jedediah. So Jason coulda been a local boy!

I cannot help thinking that the people with motor boats miss a great deal.
If they would only keep to rowboats or canoes, and use oar or paddle...
they would get infinitely more benefit than by having their work done for
them by gasoline. <Theodore Roosevelt>
