    Some fun double track roads....










    The pucker factor as you begin this water crossing is justified....








    Then just as you think it must be almost over it turns into this....








    Cya soon

    The deepest part didnt reach the bottom of my doors. Intimidating but no big deal. I did a week ago then back today to see if yesterdays rains affected it. Its a nice free car wash

    Snorkel?

    water might not look deep, but a culver cood be gone, hidden by the water. First thing you know, you are deep into it.

    was going just like you once, chogging my way in water like that on a nice back road. Endend up with water bowing in front of my hood. Decided that snorkle was cheaper and would give me a better chance on driving back home on my own.

    no, my rig is not absolutely water proofed, in anyway, but with exetended diff breather. But I got ot more as a safety factor then submarine expedition.

    also run and electric rad fan with on off switch.

    I thought the rally had "cleaning sections" for that?

    Actually working on getting some aircraft track installed to make securing everything simpler.
