Here in Indonesia, river crossings can be very dangerous. A Chevy Trooper, also known as an Isuzu Trooper, tried to cross and ended up getting stuck. Since we didn’t have anything that could pull it out, we had to leave it there overnight. Unfortunately, the mudflow off of Mt. Bromo in East Java can be pretty intense. By the time we got back to the Trooper the next morning it was almost completely buried. It took seven Jeeps and three winches to finally get the mud soaked SUV out.
