    That's some crazy technique they've got going on there. I love the way they are frantically bailing water out to keep it afloat. You'd bloody hope so by the looks of that river.

    I am happy to take my two kayaks on a trip and we can give this a try (my patrol will be the cheer squad)!!!! Lol, I wander how often they do this??
    A woodland in full color is awesome as a forest fire, in magnitude at least, but a single tree is like a dancing tongue of flame to warm the heart.

    Given that the people on the other side were not even watching i reckon very very often! Crazy but true.

    I spent a couple of years as an Australian Volunteer in Wewak in North West PNG in the mid 1990s and had to deal with the mighty Sepik River. I cant say i have seen that done but if the title of that video was not in Spanish i would have picked PNG for that for sure.

    At the end of the day the Cruiser was a junker anyways and probably a public vehicle, but what astounded me was they left the back full of stuff! if they were concerned they would have unpacked it and transferred the load to the other bank first hey??? Given they did not, i reckon that is standard procedure for that crossing maybe in times of high water. The guys did not have paddles but rather sticks or poles so it was not that deep and would be forded normally i reckon?

    my 2c

    Brave lol.

    I bought a dug out canoe along with a Peace Corp Volunteer and we paddles 200km down the Sepik in about 5 days before we sunk her trying to cross over during heavy water. That little girl did an amazing job keeping that water out, when they go they go fast!!

    lol Good fun though.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.
