Mike is going into his 39th year as an Orange Torpedo Trips guide. To say that he has seen it all only begins to describe the river experience behind whom we affectionately call the old guy, the great one, captain skirt, and many other things. During his Orange Torpedo Trips carrier Mike has guided the Grand Canyon of the Colorado, the Deschutes, the Main Salmon, the Lower Salmon, the Middle Fork of the Salmon the Klamath River, the North Umpqua River, and then finally his home river, the Rogue. Mike arguably has more days floating the Wild and Scenic Rogue River than anyone alive and he has the stories, jokes, and friends to prove it.
