Should have been more dramatic for all the damage. I was hoping for explosions.

OK, the first three shots are from my Motorala Droid. Chris caught me by surprise when he took off into the water so I don't have anything before this in pics or video. These three shots were all taken while the engine was still running and tires were still spinning.

OK, here are a few still shots from my little Canon Elph.

The first shot is just before his engine stopped. At no point did I see water higher than the wheel well opening on the passenger side. This should open the eyes of those who think that just because they have a snorkel they can go "all in" up to the windshield. There are other ways for water to get in.



This pic shows the 4Runner almost to the shore. At this point the winch cables were relocated from the ARB to the transit loops.



Taken as it was being pulled onto dry land via the "transit" loops.

Whoa. That's deeper than I thought. All the way to the top of the tires!
