            Here's very quick look at the engineered part of the river. The grand opening for the Siloam Springs Whitewater Recreation Park is June 28th. It's along the Illinois River about 3 miles south of Siloam. From Highway 412 take Highway 59 (Lincoln St.) south 1.9 miles to Devor Road. Take a left on Devor Road and go .4 miles to Fisher Ford Road. Turn right on Fisher Ford Road and follow it all the way to the park. The park is usable at this point, but not all the amenities are completed.

              The late Chris Farley’s character in SNL’s infamous skit ‘Living In a Van Down By the River’ delivers a compelling speech entitled, “Go For It!” When it comes to evangelism we are commanded by Jesus to “Go for it... and preach the Gospel.” There are a lot of spiritually isolated people out there looking for love and acceptance in all the wrong places. So whether you live in a penthouse suite or in a van down by the river, the good news of Jesus is for you.

                  • The Illinois River, Oregon


                    from Carson Lindsay Added 278 1 0

                    After I got word on Tuesday that there was a trip going down the Illinois, I knew I had to go. I got all of my homework for the weekend done and left Santa Clara at noon on Friday afternoon. After I picked up Sam and Mike from Auburn, we drove to Chico to meet up with the rest of the crew. We packed the 7 of us into the truck and made the drive up to Selma, Oregon. We got to put-in around 2 AM, woke up around 7 and got everything together. We put on the river around 9 and kept it moving, with the exception of my swim and a 15 minute lunch break, for 18 miles until Green Wall. We spent about an hour there scouting and setting safety then routed down 4 miles of read and run class III and IV until we got to the waterfall camp. The next day we headed down the last 12 miles of river and got to take-out around 3, then made the journey home. Luckily I was able to sleep in the bed of the truck all the way back to Chico because we got there at 1 AM and I still had to drive back to Santa Clara. I pulled into the dorm parking lot around 5 AM, got 2 hours of sleep and made it to my 8 AM Spanish class. Big thanks to Nicko for putting the trip together and to everyone else who made it happen. Good times and good lines. Definitely one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Music: Zion I-Coastin' (feat. K.Flay)
