Water as you enter Rubithon Springs. I told Alvaro I didn't remember that and he said we must have taken the Rock line

Yeah, I don't have a vivid memory of this mud. But watching Alvaro's video got me to thinking that I'm pretty sure I followed Cheeseman to the left around that.

We missed a lot of stuff. That is exactly why I didn't want a spotter on our run. Dave and I became good friends but I was disappointed that we had "assigned" lines. I have no doubt we could have came through cleaner if we chose our own path! I ain't got no regrets but I also will do things differently next time! :thumb:

That water puddle we skirted and took the rock line which is OK as there are a lot of 'gators in that pond and we had plenty of fun without "testing the waters!" ;)

Oh yeah I remember that ...Drew wanted me to go through it:rolleyes:
I recall David saying he wasn't sure how deep it was because nobody had gone through it yet:confused:

Thats where the snorkel comes in handy. I think Alvaro would have sucked water into his engine when he tipped if he didn't have one.

you Snorkel guys just wanted an excuse to have some photos of your trucks in some water.. ;)

Looks like you guys had fun out there. I cant wait to make the trip one of these years!

Matt thought about going that way....I remember it well.

Considering I would have been on the PS and had Matt taken Alvaro's initial line then I'm pretty sure I would have needed a change of shorts after that :lol:

Matt- thinking like thaqt may require you to get a snorkel so you don't suck a bunch of water in your engine

Comeon and joing the dumb question club, you know you want to


Stranger : Say what is that thing?
me: A snorkel
Stranger, what? no really what is it?
me: Ok, its my exhaust
Stranger: than why does it say snorkel?

I want it just for the cooler under-hood temps.

I want it just for the cooler over-hood looks.

Nah. It's a tard magnet.

I do readily admit to choosing stuff just because I think it looks cool. But not in this case.

Looks like you guys had a good time. I'm not worthy. I would want a snorkle crossing rivers like that.
