I basically showed video, still shots of my water rescue and compared it to a similar depth level water crossing I did in my FJC on the Rubicon and then discussed some go forward advice... Look for river bottom characteristics, if first add strap to back before you drop in, create a wake with steady momentum, etc..

I shared my new mantra which is "only cross once and only if you have to." It is a Mantra not a motto, cause I gotta repeat it to myself....
You did a fine job on the presentation . . . considering you received the video about 10pm the previous night.

I've already put it on my to-do list to get you those other recovery pics (and I know I'll have more you can use after my October wheeling trip in Tillamook, Oregon) so you will have plenty to plan an epic presentation at next year's Summit.

Just came across these from the photographer at the Summit..

Shameless self promotion I know but some cool pics nonetheless. Take a look at the various Toyotas in the first shot. It really is an event open to other models...
