Deep Water wading

Deep water wading with a diesel lightweight @ Billing's. You guys liked the 110 on tracks with the ice catamaran so I thought I'd post another.

Hey Doug, unbelievable!

So when is your 110 coming? I took Janey on a trail this weekend that basically comprised of running up and down a river averaging 1-2' of water, and at times over the door sills. It was a blast.

A guy in a tacoma with a snorkel was "testing" a deep section, and got into a deep hole with water over the hood. he backed out ok, but cut off the engine while letting the water escape from the cabin, and then we had some fun drying out his electrics (but did get him running again).

Our trucks should finally be leaving Southhampton early next week. Sailing time is appx. 10 days.

Where in the world did you find to go wheeling ? My 110 is diesel and has a snorkle already- love to get into a trail like that. Sounds like a blast. Call me next time, I'm an hour away & the 90 is ready to go on a moments notice (till I get the 110 registered, then the 90's for sale).

What is the guy with the tree limb trying to do??

Reminds me of the vids I have seen of Military testing for deep fording for Jeeps, Unimogs, Pinzgauers and others.

I put in a response earlier and must have forgotten to hit send, grr.

Doug there are lots of wheeling spots if you are willing to drive a little. I am a member of a local 4x4 club called the Off Camber Crawlers and there is always someone going on a run - from stocker friendly to extreme and everything in between.

http://offcambercrawlers.com

This trail is call "Dry River" (i believe it's usually pretty dry) and is in GWNF about 2-2.5 hours from NOVA. We ran it after a very stocker friendly trail called Flagpole Knob on Jan 1. Here is a link to a trail report a few years ago by a member.

Charles, I was wondering what GWNF stood for so I goggled it and I found either the worlds smallest national forest or another Google glitch

Yes, George Washington National Forrest. I wouldn't be too hard on Google - that location might very well be a center point of the overall forest (it is quite large), or they chose the nearest town to the center.

The location of the Dry river trail is just a few miles west of Harrisonburg BTW.

charles
I see you are from FL. Some of the deepest wading I have done was with my brother in the Ocala National Forrest at night in his RR. Our headlights would dip under water for extended periods and all you'd see is a dim glow ahead. Then occasionally the headlights would pop out giving you a chance to get your bearings. Very fun.

Jullian,

Was the black double cab 110 a v8 ? Looks like you hit that water crossing with quite a bit of wellie.
