remarkable Jeep test drive course installed in Vancouver

River in the City –

Fast Facts: 1,000,000 pounds of boulders, rocks and sand (2500 sand bags), used throughout the set to break up water flow and give surface disturbance;

Water (250,000 gallons) was pumped onto the street with water pumps hidden in the alley and placed in key spots. (The water was recycled using a closed water system that pumped water from the end of the street back to the top. The water was eventually discharged down the street, into Vancouver Harbor.);

400,000 pounds of snow – the snowbank was made of snow blanket and fish-ice; Logs, sticks, moss, and 80 fir/hemlock trees lined/covered the street. (The trees were boxed and returned to the nursery and boulders, gravel and other materials were also repurposed.);

 and Two wolves were on set. (The domesticated, mixed-breed wolves were made available from the Animal Insight for Film and TV. A representative from the American Humane Association was on set to attest that the wolves were treated humanely and procedures were followed. Observers were able to take pictures with the animals.)

In the states this body was a 1971 Duster.
