What would the internet be without videos of people driving underwater?
This is a fine example of the genre. River crossings in the Colorado mountains are generally short but hectic. When the runoff is heavy, rigs gather on a side, drivers contemplating the crossing, each offering his expert estimate of the water depth. Then there's that moment when you're halfway through and you slow down, water flowing over the hood, heart sinking. Crossings are usually done by necessity, to access terrain, and they're always stressful.
So what struck me about this video is the joy.
They're driving what I believe is a stripped down Nissan Patrol MQ, with a welded rear diff and a PTO winch on the front, on private property on a farm in New Zealand.
I would say to skip to 0:50 for the action to start, but it's worthwhile to hear the glee in this young gentleman's voice as he describes the upcoming "bit of a muck-around".
