Some peoples kids around water. Raging rivers here in Colorado right now. Kind of a hold my beer and watch this moment. Could be a costly recovery. Full story in Cortez Journal newspaper.

That video was on MSN yesterday. I think once he got started he had no choice but to keep going forward. There was no turning back.
The MSN story stated that the Jeep couldn't be recovered until the waters slowed down, then the Jeeper would have to pay for the recovery. I hope he had towing insurance.

The rivers being near, at or even above flood stage has been in the news for weeks. Lots of snow to melt, warm temps and a lot of precipitation.
Guess the guy should have read the papers or listened to the radio.

Good Luck, L.M.

I love that pic! I don't know what it is but with the snorkel and the raised exhaust the first thing I thought of was...." Scuba Doo" or "Scooba Doo" :lmao:

It is a GM Vietnam era M151 and the under water kit is real. :jawdrop: There is a knob on the dash that when you pull it, it closes ALL of the vents on the vehicle. Engine vents, Differential vents, the works. You don't want to leave it pulled for too long or you start blowing things up. It has another knob that works as a throttle so you can set it then sit on top of the seat with your head above the windshield. It supposedly will cross water to the top of the windshield. I never tried it.


OF COURSE this is all with the hard top off of it. If you tried it with the top on you would just drown.

I spent a lot of my younger years in Colorado hiking and fishing rivers. I could tell just by looking at that one from the bank that I would never put a vehicle in it. Funny video I love it when his cooler goes floating by him, priceless.
