My main route home was probably 6' deep, so I went another route that ended up 3' deep in the beginning, and when i turned on Krick (yep) it got deeper. I was pushing a good size wake in front so when I got to an invisible 3' dip, it only added another foot.
    Bottom line is, if it had fugged my van up, I deserved it. But God protects the feebs.
    You are lucky! That could have trashed the engine. Time for a snorkel kit!

    looks like that might be the norm for Nerferk. We're #1 in loss of land due to rising oceans.

    It made it to my mechanic about 10 miles away. there was a noise that sounded like bearings going in my alternator. Turned out to b my belt tensioner. No problems anywhere else. My stupidity will only cost me $250 repairs plus truck rental. WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY less than I originally thought.
