If you've been off-roading even once, then you've got a mental list of places you'd like to drive and obstacles you'd like to take on. Now, you may not have the vehicle for it today (or ever), but there's something deep inside of us all that urges us to make note, just in case the opportunity ever presents itself.
For example, have you ever seen a waterfall and immediately thought to yourself, "Damn...I'd love to conquer that"? It's a fairly reasonable approach for many adventurous off-roaders.
As a matter of fact, the owner of this Jeep Wrangler not only spotted the waterfall and thought about climbing it, he put it into gear and went for it. Now granted, he's not reverse-barreling up Niagara Falls, but this waterfall appears to have a pretty strong current, judging from the sound and the froth making its way down the rocks. Additionally, he's got to ford through water up to the bumper just to get there. The rocks at the bottom of this pond have got to be super slippery and unhelpful for anyone trying to find purchase for a wet and wild climb like this.
But, this driver has patience and perseverance on his side. Sure, it takes him a few minutes and an approach or two before he gets all the way up, but it takes seriously balls to try something like this!
Perhaps we could all learn a lesson from this driver. If we take the time to sort out what's preventing us from making our dreams come true, perhaps we can find the best approach to safely and succinctly make it happen. Maybe we're all just Jeep Wranglers, trying to climb a waterfall against the current of our lives. Wow. This video is actually really deep when you think about it.
The real question is: What does this driver do when he gets to the top of the waterfall?
