    This the Flooded Condamine River at Murray's Bridge.

    This road leads onto the bridge that is 7 meters above the river. :noes:

    Apparently not flooded enough…

    This bloke casually drove around the road closed sign and stopped while his little kid jumped out to dial in the hubs, before going for it.... Boat and all!

    :eek4:

    Had to open the doors to let about 8 inch's of water out. :bowdown:


    He gave his email address to one of the guys and asked for the pics to be sent to him.

    When someone asked him why he did it... He laughed and said it was nothing and drove off.




    :ugh:
