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.

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.
