If you're looking for You Tube videos of someone tubing down central Oregon's Metolius River, look no farther than... me!
A few days ago I put up the World''s First You Tube Metolius River Tubing Video. That was shot by my wife from bankside.
Now -- behold! -- I reveal the World's First You Tube Go-Pro Point of View Metolius River Tubing Video.
This was taken via a chest mount on a solo tubing run that I made after daughter, granddaughter, son-in-law, and me had tubed down another stretch of the Metolius (video of that needs to be edited; coming soon).
I'm pretty damn proud of 64 year-old me. As I say in the video, hardly anybody tubes down the Metolius. In fact, hardly anybody floats down the upper reaches of the Metolius on any sort of device.
Hopefully this video will get more tubers into the admittedly cold water -- 48 degrees at the spring-fed source; I'm tubing close to the source, before any warmer-water creeks flow into the Metolius.
The river moves right along between the Tract C bridge and just before Lake Creek; there's enough riffles, curves, logs, islands, branches, and what-not to keep the tubing interesting (paddle highly recommended for maneuvering); the Metolius is super-beautiful, world-class beauty.
What's not to like, besides the cold water? I had a lot of fun. Watch me enjoying the Metolius.
