Heh heh, that brings back a few memories! I can recall being with the brother as he drove across a flooded bridge at the 14 Mile Brook on the Wandering-Narrogin Rd in his HJ61 in the early 80's.
The bridge railings were only just poking out of the floodwaters, and as he drove through, a bow wave came over the bonnet that the wipers had trouble getting rid of!
The floodwater was lapping the door window seals, and I was sure we were going to end up stopping there!
However, the old HJ61 just churned through, and out the other side, without missing a beat!

It's interesting to note the military ancestry of a lot of the de-bogging and winching techniques.

Some of the locations shown are pretty much untouched too.

Most of the advice given still holds true today.

cheers for the video Paul. I'd love to see someone try parasailing behind a 4wd now days.
