2nd crossing is the deepest/fastest. This buggy is on 40’s

Winched 2 trucks across Committee yesterday. One was dead in the water
Lakes dropping about a foot a day.
Curious when they're gonna slow it down for Sierra Trek.

Using the time to chase down a glowing manifold issue :mad3:

Nope. Here's a direct link.

It's still 2 hours, not far, but I've gone once when the water was too high to cross for most (when those guys all hydrolocked while daisy chained together) and I don't really want to do it again. I'll just go somewhere else if it's too high.

Sorry man meant straight to the website since link no worky.

1st crossing was in a lower Tacoma with 37s, dipped one corner of the hood on the high line closer to the drop off. Water lapped up within 3" of the door handles though.

Everyone had real clean hoods by they time they got across :D

Is flow increased now to offset the reduced flow for Sierra Trek ?

RCKRATZ 07-31-2018 10:18 AM

no telling. There really is never any rythme or reason that we know of. According to pg&e its all about power generation
