Re: I found a dirt road

Of course I HAD to use 4WD. Mostly just to make sure the transfer case is lubricated.

Yes that is Lake Michigan, up in Door Country. Pretty up there.

Re: I found a dirt road

Did you have to use any recovery gear or get to test out the snorkel? That's a lot of truck with not a lot to play on.

PS. Looks like a lot of dead trees.

Re: I found a dirt road

Door County has some nice boat launches that take you out into just a foot or two of water. I saw some on the Eastern Peninula up toward the north that looked like it extended at that depth for a good quarter to half mile. Since you've already got the snorkel you should take it out into the lake that far and a maybe a bit farther. The pictures would be rock!

Of course, the only problem with Door County is that it tends to be heavily patrolled. I'm not exactly sure how the local police force would react to an FJ crusin around lake Michigan.

Re: I found a dirt road

If I got a boat license I bet that would look cool on the fenders.
