Re: skid plates/belly protection
Well, I recollect a couple fishing trips where the lure was the lake and the lunkers within.
I managed to get into Island Lake near Kamloops with my Subaru and tent trailer, keeping the driving wheels on top of the boulders. I heard my buddy coming with his 17' Boler from half a mile away. Sounded like the end of time.
The Boler had a substantial overhang and my buddy had left a lot of it on the rocks that claimed to be a road into the site. But he did arrive.
We had to bail out a day early before rain turned the dust that surrounded those rocks into quicksand.
Another time, I was picking my way down, sticking to the tops of the boulders, when I realized that I could probably ease my way to the bottom, but I'd never get out. I was lucky that I had the option to back into some bush and turn around.
Ended up camping at a swamp ( they call it a lake ). New York steaks, fresh corn on the cob, baked potatoes, and chocolate, and cheezies for desert. It was all good.
