Suburban Transforms Into Submarine on Flathead Lake
Opps! Somebody had a rough day on Flathead Lake. The following is satire. We hope everyone involved is okay.
The hot summer heat has arrived in Montana. With each day slowly baking the western part of the state. When it comes to escaping the hot summer heat, there is a very popular destination...Flathead Lake. The lake is one of the largest natural lakes in the country, and is the leftover remnants of the ancient glacial Lake Missoula. Doesn't that sound refreshing on a 95 degree day? "Let's go take a dip in what remains of the giant ice cube lake."
According to Wikipedia
It is approximately 30 miles (48 km) long and 16 miles (26 km) wide, covering 197 square miles (510 km2). Flathead Lake has a maximum depth of 370.7 ft (113.0 m), and an average of 164.7 ft (50.2 m)
There are so many ways to explore the lake. With hundreds of boats on the water every day. But, with a depth of 370 feet, you are going to need a submarine to explore the bottom. It appears one recreationalist was aiming to do just that, this past weekend. Photos where captured at the Somers boat ramp, showing what appears to be a Chevy Suburban, transforming into a submarine. That is one way to explore the bottom of the lake, in style.
UPDATE: Turns out the suburban was not actually a submarine. It appears the photos were taken after an error launching a boat. Though these are rare, sometimes people forget to put the car in the proper gear when launching a boat. Next thing you know the car is getting a full service car wash inside and out. Should up the re-sale value a little you would think.
