True. And side-currents, or any currents, are a bitch.

BTW, Dale's "flood prep" was as follows;
- Change to his Tall & Skinny tires.
- Check all snorkles and vent tubes,
- Check all electrical waterproofing, with a good spray/soak from the hose.
- Throw about 1,000 lbs of old engine blocks in the bed, up near the cab.
- Put small john boat w/ 5-hp outboard engine in bed ("Gotta' have a Backup Plan.")



Funny part was that he was the first person around here with a freewheeling propeller mounted to the back of his rear differential, as a joke. As he would pull out of the water it would be spinning. The Old River Rats down on the Meramec thought it was functional.
