I was there a week ago and went through every water hole without a problem. Of coarse my Jeep is a little tall and I can turn off my fan while wading through water.

Baby Jeeps need to stay out of the water holes though.

This family was from chicago, I pulled him out, and watched the lake that came from the inside of it.

The owner of the vehicles quote to me
"So, how long do I have to wait to have the water drain out of my motor"
My respones
"It doesnt quite work like that

Yup...I think anybody that's been to SL knows those lakes well. Every year we are they it seems atleast one or two guys try to blow through the center of 'em at 5000rpm in stock rigs. What is funny is their reactions when they see a rod sticking through the side of their engine block or oil pan...ah duh
