When Water Attacks

Beverage News

“Being close to danger is just part of the job”, says Jeff Dorenbush of Mutineer Magazine on location where water had devoured a road.

People always talk about water like it is this awesome thing, and alcohol like it’s the enemy (See Jesus + Hatchets = No More Alcohol). In some ways it is, but when was the last time tequila roared mercilessly through a populated area? This is what water has done tonight in the Pacific Northwest, and being that the Mutineers are dedicated to covering all things beverage, they jimmy-rigged a Land Cruiser snorkel kit to the Mutineer Passat and headed to ground zero for ultimate coverage. While the car snorkel was a hit, things fell apart when the Mutineers realized that no one had packed a flash light or umbrella. Furthermore, no one had any journalistic experience covering merciless floods, and with a rented copy of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and nachos waiting back at Mutineer HQ, things just began to feel not-meant-to-be.

    it’s about time someone took a stand against water!

    doesn’t the magazine lease the Mutineer Passat? Is it ok that you guys added a snorkel kit?

    Snorkels kits are for the birds, just go as fast as you can and plow on through.

    Mutineers = Flood Chasers :)
    Always interesting to see what you guys have to say! Keep it up!

    at least Jeff looks like he is having fun.

    Chasing flood water is a brilliant idea…compared to being chased by flood water. Next time think about Mutineer scuba tanks in case the snorkel fails and the Passat drowns. Hope the movie was enjoyable.
