    yes some of us do, mostly posers.
    but some of us actually use them for their intended purpose.

    River and creek crossings are all part of the sambar hunting scene in Victoria getting into and more importantly getting back out.However the waters can get up and often an extended stay is required with depths that no snorkel can cope with.
    There are around 18 million acres set aside for deer hunting and just as many more for playing in ya 4wd also.
    Lots of vehicle drownings occur every year too both with experienced and new chums.

    Have a snorkel and a full axle / gearbox breather system. I was always of the opinion that a snorkels main job is to draw clean air from higher up as well as preventing water ingress?
    I'm telling Captain - from the Wee'est of men.

    Got the same system on mine Tom, the snorkel is a pain in the ass when you are shooting off the mirror though !

    I don't but boy did I wish I had one when I was 17.
    Managed to go get the old mans 110 through some very deep water, ie over the bonnet.
    Yep all going well building confidence in its ability to ford the deep stuff and you guessed it game over.
    Luckily the insurance coughed for most of the bill.
    Lesson learned.
