Hydraulic pressure is impressive

Just had a super heavy rain storm which flooded the roads and rivers in my area. Having a van with great ground clearance is great for times like this, you just drive straight through flooded areas without worrying about getting stuck. I had lots of fun. Unfortunately I did lose a hub cap to one of the deeper puddles I drove through. Must have hit it at high enough speed to cause the hub cap to go flying off due to the force of the water passing across it. I don't know if I will get a new set of caps or take the other three off. I am glad that I didn't have a set of stock vanagon ones on there.

This sunday I will be attending a VW car show in Evergreen. Should be fun although I don't intend on driving the van to the show. I just want to attend and see the events, plus it is a rather steep and hilly road to get there and my van is tired.
