Fording the River

This is what we faced on our way home to Gemena several weeks ago.  You can see us in the back, peeking around the right of the BIG truck stuck in the river.

Preparing to ford the river

I had more room to get past the truck on the side going out, but none extra.

Plunge in and don't stop!

I was also concerned about high centering and how muddy the slope up would be.  On the way to Zongo, there was a high center going down this slope and I was scraping it.  I almost felt that I was going to have a problem, but thankfully didn’t.  Low 4WD works great on these trucks.  Coming out I got it going and let her rip.

Flooring it up the bank



Free and clear on the other side - piece of cake, right?
