“Here fucking goes nothin’.”

Words that belong inscribed upon the marble pillars of time in memoriam. Here lies the fate of an Aussie that didn’t know “no” as an answer. He walked the river and still attempted, and succeeded in the crossing; this is a resident of Oz that doesn’t know anything but danger and winches. None of us should strive to emulate him, because all of us would fail.

And this random Aussie might have also failed had a tree caught his Subaru/raft before it drifted too far down the river. He seemed to know how dangerous this was though.

“I decided to try push the limits of river crossings further than any Subaru has ever done before. This was a fast flowing sandy bottom river of depth up to 1.2m. I had fully walked the area before attempting the crossing was sure the depth was beyond the capabilities of a Subaru and it was very unlikely to be crossed successfully however I was curious what would happen if only the front wheels were able to touch the bottom. Would the vehicle be able to claw its way along slowly and make it to the other side? The answer was sort of… It did claw its way across the river however the floating back end got taken by the current and the front wheels did not have sufficient traction to pull the whole vehicle into the current. “

Don’t try this at home.
