    Off-road...Latvian style

    Pretty impressive for some homemade machines.

    Looks like great terrain for it too

    Fun stuff. The Jeep club I belonged to years ago..they had a group which really hopped up their vehicles and did some of those super deep mud runs in the springtime. I did a couple of moderate runs...as I had a set of 33" SuperSwampers I'd slap on for a few runs. But I enjoyed the rock climbing more than the deep mud runs. The mud runs..your vehicle would stink..absolutely stink..as the mud would cook onto various parts...your exhaust mostly....yuck. Would smell inside for weeks afterwards. Not to mention having to pull the drainplugs in the floor and rinse her off well on the insides when you got home.

    Never done much other than tool around in my stock '93 Pathfinder. Had it since new and every now and then find myself buzzed in a campground somewhere, looking around...living in AZ was great for that

    Since then just beach and a bit of the Trinity mountains. Nowhere near rock climbing or mudding of course.

    I like the clip at the very end of the guy just getting deeper and deeper I wish they showed the footage of his camera going under water.

    I liked the shot of them lathing the rust off an old axle or something, making the rusty crap look spanking new.

    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.
