Two years ago I was scouting a track heading to the Oro Fino mine near Oliver, British Columbia. I had headed up the mountain but the road ended and I turned back down. There were 4 or 5 mud holes on the flats at the bottom that I had come through with the GeoQwest Excursion.
On traversing the first muddy section, I met 2 guys in a Jeep coming towards me. They were out of their vehicle examining the mudhole and planning their strategy for getting through. Their Jeep was covered with mud, mainly because their oversized tires extended beyond the wheelwells.
I geared the Excursion down and slowly churned through the hole and emerged at the other side. It turned out they were the lead vehicle of 6 or 7 trucks from Vancouver on a 4x4 holiday. Nearly all the trucks had oversized tires and all kinds of aftermarket accessories attached. They had extra gas cans slung on the sides and roof racks full of equipment. All were covered with mud from rim to roof as they had charged through the first few mudholes.
I informed the group that the road led nowhere. So we all turned around.
I watched both in amusement and eco-horror as each truck slid, bobbed and blasted across the mud holes, fat tires throwing mud everywhere. A lower slung Ford Explorer had to be pulled out.
At each hole I waited to go through last. I picked my line, low gear, mid rpm and churned through with no spray, sliding or drama. A number of the other drivers came up to the Excursion at the end to try to figure out how it could get through with such little drama.
Easyâ€¦donâ€™t drive like a Chevy Silverado commercial. Less power is often a good thing both for the equipment and the environment. Skinny tires and 8,000 pound of truck cut down to the firm base of most mudholes and doesnâ€™t need flying turf to get through.
Geurilla Marketing at it's lowest!
