oh... someone, i think rocket, posted a picture of a BCC bumper, but it was some picture reading "have a gay day!" and i assumed it was because BCC doesnt allow people to take pics from their site.

guess rocket deleted his post...

Yep, sorry bout that. When i first posted it, the picture showed up just fine but the next day it was gone and replaced with "have a nice day". It was actually linked from WATTORA and not BCC.
anyhow it was picture #95 ...this should work: http://www.wattora.com/gallery/album60/DSC02499

Check out the Nov/Dec '05 issue of 4Wheel Drive Toyota Owner Magazine, http://www.4wdtoyotaowner.com/
they had an article on water crossings, and the author has a trick for judging water depth. He claims that if you throw a rock the noise it makes hitting the water will indicate its depth. I don't have the mag handy, but he swears by the trick, says he's used it to ford water all over the world. BTW, the magazine is awesome and I highly recommend a subscription.

Thanks, Spindle! Yes, the trick he mentioned is when you throw a rock into the water, if it makes a "sploosh" sound it is over two feet deep while a "clack" sound means under two feet (total general rule of thumb here, your mileage may vary!)

Cheers,

Dave

This isnt anything deep but thought it was cool going through there with the bamboo on either side of us.

Here is the only picture I have right now. I need to pull some from the video I have of Lingham Lake, so I can get a deeper one. (front bumper is under water) But for now this one will have to do...



Here is the best I could get....

Well, seems that's just what I do...no foul implications...just apparently fashionably late. But eh...I'm important enough, they'll wait for me. lol
