An inflatable boat? On the Mississippi? Okay, great strategic plan. A couple of small difficulties do arise. You said no motor, right? just drift with your band of merry men, pillaging along the way. After your first couple of violent assaults, word is going to get out that there's a monster on the river. Somebody is going to hear gunfire, or a survivor, there are alway's some, will carry new's down river. The Mighty Mississippi has a current of only 2.7 MPH on the average. A survivor with a horse or bike, or walking quickly for that matter can get well ahead of you and alert Joe Bob, Billy Ray, and Clark Kent, that you have slaughtered their family, and they would like a little pay back, please. The Mississippi IS a mile wide in SOME places, but over much of it's stretch, it's less than four hundred. With a an AR-15, BAR 30/06, or SMLE .303, you would be absolute candy from the shore. Impossible to hit? With a six man inflatable, if you could find five other idiot's to join you, would offer a target about twelve feet long and three feet high. With even just starlight, moving at less than walking speed, you would be the easiest target in the world. I cannot imagine a more vulnerable position to put oneself in on purpose. If you try to return fire, all the locals have to do is roll down the bluff and (reverse side) and you can't touch them. Then they have a smoke or a chaw, laugh about how loud one of your guy's screamed, and leisurely mount their horses, bikes, mo-peds, or whatever, and move to the next ambush point. If you try to come to the bank, someone's **** hound is going to kick up a fuss, and the friendly people we'll help you ashore, with a rope around your neck. Other than these small problems, it seem's like a viable plan to me. Please let me know how I sign up.

We we sailing along, on the mighty Mississippi ...

MELVIN on a moon light ride down the Mississippi -- what a great thought for Billy Ray, Jim Bob and Bubber.

Guest of honor at the Rope Prom isn't exactly what Melvin had in mind.

RIKA, when you're MELVIN, being guest of honor anywhere is a plus.

All his life he's been searching for somethin’
Somethin’ never comes, never leads to nothin’
Nothin’ satisfies, but he's gettin’ close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope.

The prize at the end of MELVIN'S rope will be the fancy KNOT!

Yeah I can just imagine Melvin and crew on the water.

He'd be a regular Fellatio Hornblower.
TODD, that is the funniest come-back I have heard in years. I will use it over and over and over. :laugh01: :laugh01: :laugh01:

I live

less than a mile from the mighty Miss river as the crow fly well above the flood plain,...I can only hope that Melvin is floating by day or night with his merry band of river pirates from the vantage point we have.
The river at Alton IL is wide but doable with a good bolt gun or even some less range effective weapons that are carried by a bunch of good ole boys in thier duck boats,....it would be quite a day.
Stupid people should not take float trips.

I miss the days of the old "Bug out Board" and how gunkid was going to do the 'escape and evasion" thing floating down the Mississippi till he got to Louisiana, where he planned to sell his "skills" to the nearest warlord. He had wonderful plans for his "bullet resistant/ invisible" one man life raft.
