Ran some deep water Saturday. After nearly covering my 42s in the Hills & Bowls bowl and then in the trench I decided to see how deep 5' hole was. Didn't get my hubs wet.

Then we ran Lake Christy. The lower ofthe 2 TJs on 35s took on water through the passenger door. I ran both shores of the main lake and I think Shane's holes are smoothed out. The far share is definitely deeper. Probably 3' on the Roxy's way side and 3.5' on the far shore. The pre-lake is still all muck on the far side too. I didn't test that Inc it got soft.

Last time I went through the trench the water covered my 38s.  That and that water stank bad!

Nothing like the smell of stank water, especially when it's cooking off of your radiator.

That trench didn't really hold water until this year it seems. Unless it's just been my timing but I remember it usually being almost dry in years past.

Same here Bolton.  It used to be a little muddy at times but that was about it.  Something happened because I don't remember seeing it hold that much water before.
