That was definitely one of the craziest trips I've ever taken! I had to go to Diapaga (about 30 miles away) to pick up some guests at the bus stop. Almost half-way there, the skies opened up and it just poured! I had to make most of the trip in 4-wheel-drive. The entire road was a bog. There was one stretch where the road was completely covered for almost 1.5 miles. Normally, I would play "dodge the potholes". But all I could do was keep the truck going down the middle of the river (road), and hope I didn't get stuck. At several places, I was just slogging through foot-deep mud. It was crazy! I also had to get out and help push two cars (2-wheel-drive) out of the mud. So I looked kind of like the truck when I got home.
"For consider your calling, brethren, that there were not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble; but God has chosen the foolish things of the world to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to shame the things which are strong, and the base things of the world and the despised God has chosen, the things that are not, so that He may nullify the things that are, so that no man may boast before God." (1 Corinthians 1:26-29)
