Funny about that water, and that Florida post. A couple years ago I was in FLorida doing Swampy's Dixie Dual Sport ride. It had rained like crazy beforehand and there was lots of water, but it didn't bother me.

The big difference was and is, that on the FL ride there were many many others to help if anything got bogged down and I could tell on the FL ride it wasn't too terribly deep.

This time, I was alone, it was getting late, I wasn't riding where I said I was, and I was running out of water and energy. Shame on me.

Last week I crossed that same area and the water was just as high. I wanted to turn tail again, but was with another rider who went first. So once I saw this brave man cross I jumped in. It still scared me.
(It's my girly girl side showing)

Here is a pic of the same scary water crossing last week.

People are skeered of the unknown. And we only see that funny wet stuff a few times a year, makes it pretty scary.

Hell, my bike is even afraid of the garden hose.
