I went for a little drive on the roads by my house, they are a mix of half smooth new tarmac and well maintained gravel. I was taking the straight shot through the woods on a large curve in the highway so i could just take the highway back home when i was done. when the paved roads ended i went across the first low water bridge, I prolly should have noticed that the water was really high but i just went ahead anyway. after about 20 miles i was heading back to the highway and the bridge i was planning on taking had a little too much water going over it to cross( the jeep wasnt even going to try it) sooooo. Insted of turning back i went ahead to see if i could take this road to the highway(this was all a guess as i only looked at the roads to the first bridge on google maps). after wandering for a half hour i came to another flooded bridge, but this one didnt have a dip in the middle so i felt the suby could ford the creek. After crossing, the road climbed onto a ridge and out of the trees so i could finaly see where i was going and in the distance i saw the tarmac roads that lead the the highway.
this is only one small section of the backroads in this area of missouri, if the weather breaks today i have another road picked out. and yes i need better wheels.
