We were winched out that day. The Platte river here is all sand . The jeep in front of us stalled out and in seconds we were sinking in the sand. Usually as long as the wheels keep spinning ( slowly ) we will keep moving , When you stop ,the sand under your tires starts disapearing . Its just like standind on a beach when the wave goes out and you feel the sand under your feet go out with the wave. My jeep snorkel is through the fire wall and under my dash. Alot of the jeeps here will rig thier air tank to the differentials to keep the water from going in with a little air pressure.On that day we drained everything and were back in the river in less than an hour.
