The river crossings are intense, we almost fully submerged our rental Jimmy in one. water came halfway up the windshield, but it still kept running and momentum/river flow got us across.

Did you dive in the Continental plate crack thinggie?

The pictures are awesome, thanks for posting.

That's crazy.

Yeah, they where flowing pretty good when we crossed on the way into Porsmork. Saw a rental Jeep with the rear bumper torn off. Even in the big 4x4 buses we felt them.


We didn't do any diving or things like that. Probably best for me, being terrified of the ocean.

Still have lots of pics to post. Hopefully this weekend.
