Title: Facebook Group, I Got Bogged at Inskip Point
Post by: Hairs on September 17, 2017, 07:14:47 AM
I really hope that there are not any Swaggers that end up on this groups video collection.
https://www.facebook.com/barry.hicks.566/videos/1648698351829012/ (https://www.facebook.com/barry.hicks.566/videos/1648698351829012/)
Everyday there is a new vid of some tool getting bogged, usually due to not dropping tyre pressures and trying to tow something not setup for sand travel.
I have a question, Are people really that stupid  ???
Then again it is entertaining to have a couple of beers and watch these idoits.  :cup:
I know there are some Swaggers that have nothing to do with Facebook, that's cool, I guess you guys could Youtube it.
Swing on by and you will be blown away how dumb some are,
A warning, some vids do have foul language
Enjoy  ;D

Love that page. Wifey and I have 3 days at Rainbow on the long w/end and we're not taking the fourby for fear of ending up on this page. If I don't take the truck I can't be tempted. Haha

Not sure about "not set up for sand travel", that van for instance could easily be towed through there if the person had deflated their tyres sufficiently, which is the case for most things shown on that site (other then 2wd sedans). To many people either don't deflate their tyres at all or think 25psi is enough / are scared to go below 20 psi even, it's not so much stupidity, but either they are totally clueless or lazy usually.

sand driving is all about tyre pressures, it's that simple.

You are right, the wrong tyre pressures are the reason most fail, but just looking at that van it isn't setup even for highway traveling.  ;D

For sure. I've been down to 9psi to get through certain places. Once up at Five Rocks to get up Big Sandy. We came around the corner at the bottom of the climb only to be greeted by about 10 trucks in varying states of boggednes. Pulled up and knocked the tyres down to 9 psi and crawled right past them all. Had to weave our way through them all. That was in the 80, which we both know is the greatest truck on earth.

almost always too much, so if they don't air down I move on!

i was abit concerned getting back up from the beach at the rocks themselves there with it's blind corners and soft sand and the fact we were solo there late in the arvo, wouldn't want to encounter someone coming down as you go back up it...lol. I had to run 10psi rears and 8 psi fronts to get over Big Red several years ago when nobody else was getting over it, the water on both the Eastern side and Western side of the dune meant there was no run up possible to climb it, so you started right at the base of the dune for the climb....tyre pressures were the key.

That me as well, if I have time I offer to help, from time to time there is somebody that won't listen or lower tyre pressures this is when my assistance stops.

What annoys me is when they say yep lowered the tyre pressures, but when I put my gauge on it tells a different story...it good watching their face when I got the staun deflators on and air pisses out everywhere....they than can generally drive out of the bog or worst case 2 min with a shovel.

Hoping I don't end up on it next Saturday. I would be like the good old days of the Fraser Classic when they filmed all the stuff ups every day and screened them at the pub (weigh in area). Yes, we got on it a couple of times. Launching and towing a 19ft cruisecraft at Waddy is an imprecise science  :cheers:

What's the going rate for being snatched out? Carton?

And I wonder if those up to their eyeballs (well axles anyway) ever wonder why it is so many people just sail past.

Most of the recoveries are cringe worthy! So many where the person being snatched ain't ready, pretty sure on one double pull with two lifted to the sky old hiluxes trying to get a triton with camper out the driver second inline actually hops out of his car when the front hilux snatches again! ???
And so many people standing near snatch straps, attached to non rated pionts on vehicles.

Th big part I hate is when are in a line up coming off the barge and your doing it with no troubles and the blokes in front baulk  or sinks right in the up ramp and you have no choice to but to stop  in the soft stuff  or try to climb up out of the wheel ruts ..Not an easy task with a low powered [ read gutless Rocky or 4runner ] .

On our last trip back from Fraser we had a tilt tray with a cruiser on the back. They let the truck off as one of the first cars, we were one of the last cars.
Everyone tailed along behind the tilt tray, I commented to the wife that this wasn't going to end well. Sure enough halfway across the spit the tilt tray goes down. Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. He eventually gets moving again, leaving a good 80m or so of really soft chewed up sand behind him.
I couldn't believe it when every car stayed in line and tried to drive through his ruts. Needless to say they each in turn got stuck. I watch for a bit, but soon got bored and jumped out of the trucks tracks and took a fresh clean line passing all the others on the way.

But we were in our Jeep so we didn't need to follow the leader..... ;)

I too keep an eye on that page, however sometimes the comments from the armchair experts do annoy me.
It basically hasn't rained in SEQ for months, so that sand would be extremely dry and soft.  I have had my Prado very close to being bogged on a Fraser cutting (albeit trying to snatch a disco out) in extremely soft sand.  Prado was empty, 2" lift, A/T tyres (not that that helps), in Low range (Prado is always in 4x4), and with 15psi in the tyres.  It took an F150 to snatch us both out (he stayed on horder sand).  As we pulled away, a 100 series with plenty of smash, also got bogged.
So while most of the clowns probably do get bogged at Inskip due to their own lack of knowledge, spare a thought for the guys who have let their tyres down, and are AT the max GCM/GVM, and still get ridiculed like they are imbeciles, by the armchair experts.
And tourists?  I'm sure the odd Aussie 4wd'er gets shown the middle finger on an Autobahn in Germany, or a roundabout in Paris.  Cut them some slack.

Currently sitting at Inskip Point...been a good 20 vehicles bogged here today that I've witnessed. Sand is nothing special though in it's condition, yes it is soft and chewed up, but those that have deflated sufficiently are getting through easily enough, even one guy towing a decent sized caravan. Saw one vehicle towing a Hawk (I think it was) bogged for over an hour, the guy trying to recover him got bogged also, then a 3rd vehicle joined in and got stuck, then they eventually got out right as we deflated my mates tyres to 12psi to go rescue them.

Got given 4 free beers for rescuing someone this arvo, and knocked back the beer offers from 2 other people we rescued aswell. Tyres at 12 psi we rolled up to the bogged vehicles, easily unbogged them with the gentlest of snatches and barely spun the wheels as we dragged the bogged vehicles (towing either caravans or camper trailers) out of where they'd sat for 40 minutes. Doesn't matter the sand condition with the lack of rain, deflate tyres sufficiently and it's easy going...we drove at walking pace through there with tyres at 12 psi.
The guys in the videos you see driving a black Patrol with bonnet scoop or white 100 series Cruiser rescuing people are locals, saw the white 100 series Cruiser driver bogged rescuing someone aswell as struggling big time rescuing someone else...I doubt they deflate their tyres at all, as one vehicle he rescued that we'd deflated his tyres to 14psi, was driving the sand easier then the white Cruiser was after he got it off sitting on it's chassis rails. The Cruiser driver said he was at about 20psi when I quizzed him,  I doubt it was that low though. The guy in the black Patrol was sitting under a tree beside the track where everyone gets bogged, reckon he films quite a bit of the action

If you were in a Jeep ( or any other 4wd ) and not towing....and get bogged....you need to get back out on the beach and practise !!

its the same at Robe/Beachport..  people are scared to go down to 12... One bloke wouldn't listen to anything and refused to go below 40 few years back, so I left him to another bloke. Same bloke didn't know if his rangey was in 4wd or not

I usually start at 18, and if its soft, head to 12, and when recovering others have gone down to 8psi as the tide was rising pretty quick.

Sorry for the hi-jack,
Come wait for the Bluff Point Ferry here at Lawrence between 7- 9am & again in the arvo, 2-6pm because all the retards believe it is quicker traveling between Grafton & Maclean with the Highway upgrade. The ferry operators have told me that 2000 vehicles a day cross it.
HTF can waiting for 30-45 minutes at the ferry be quicker then a 40 minute trip at tops down the highway?

Trucks are a lot more predictable than ****stains who catch trains mon-Friday for 12mths then think they can drive 12-15 hours nonstop to get to their destination... 2hrs into the drive they are already nodding...

Maybe not. I go to places to fish and relax, not swill on beer and sit around places like Carlo Rocks, Ngkala etc waiting for some poor bastard to bugger their vehicle. Why are these people there in the first place?
I bet they'd all be experts too, graduating from the 4x4 Action University for Small Endowed Persons.

was multiple people fishing there yesterday, and also people like ourselves that were relaxing watching our kids play in the shallow water of the Western side of where the vehicles drive out to get the barges...it's pretty busy there currently with people camping at Inskip for school holidays also. The only people that appeared to be there for other reasons, were the guy in the black Patrol with the bonnet scoop (he was sitting on a chair under a tree solely waiting for vehicles to get bogged), and another local in a white 100 series (though he also appeared to be there relaxing at times also, just very eager to volunteer to recover stuck people...probably likes the free beers...lol)

dunno myself, atleast in traffic you are in air con with the stereo playing...it's mid thirty degree temps at the moment and very hot out on that sand whilst trying to recover vehicles, doesn't take long at all to get hot sweaty and dehydrated....doesn't sound fun to me. Can only imagine the nagging some people got from their partners after being bogged there for over half an hour, a few vehicles we saw stuck their for an hour as people drove very close by them at speed, pretty dangerous for them it was.

I returned from Fraser on the Weekend and I was looking at this Facebook page very carefully before I left. Seeing I was towing the Camper I was adamant I wouldn’t end up on the page as my mates would never stop laughing at me, so I put my tyres down to 14 PSI and made it a piece of cake. That’s also driving around 2 bogged 4WD’s at the beginning on the track.

On a side note Ngkala rocks is currently passable via the beach at dead low tide which caught a lot of people out coming home as it meant they had to use the bypass track. Let’s just say it was like a car park and again didn’t want to get stuck myself, put the tyres down to 12 PSI and got over first time.

Ngkala was like that a few months ago also, we got there about 2 hours after low on the run back from Sandy Cape and went over the rocks as the water was up to much then (saw a few try and dodge the waves but got a salt water bath)

All these people getting bogged at Inskip Point make me laugh ,

The first time I was there ( some years back  - early 1999 ) myself and my then 2 teenage kids went for a drive , the camping area was chock a block with campers and we continued on , past a big sign - 4x4 vehicles only past this point - and out towards the ferry .

We watched several 4x4's get bogged - several more driving through very deep water getting onto the ferry and a couple needed winching onto the ferry .

After a while I got bored so I fired up my 5 Litre V8 Holden VK Calais and we drove back along the beach , past the sign , past the campers and laughed about all the wankers with their blinged up 4x4's all the way back to Gympie.

Similar we used to get old paddock bashers (usually old HT's etc or the milk truck I've posted before ;D ) and head out to Boat Harbour beach to blisso's shack, and around the sand hills to the water hole in summer... being good kind considerate teenagers we'd pull up next to the bogged 4wds and ask if they needed a hand.. the replies were rarely complamentary with a pack of 14-17 yr olds in a car with no bonnet, no windows and had usually had quite a few beers offering to drag out their 50k 4wd.

Momentum makes a big difference, Don't know that the speed she had to travel at to keep it going was necessarily safe but didn't see her getting stuck.

Went down to Inskip this morning. Dropped the tyres down to 12psi and crawled righr through with a worry. Had a poke around then pulled up and within 10 mins the cutting was blocked both lanes. After about 10 minutes i went over to see if i could help. One of the stuck trucks and hus camper were about to be snatched backwards.  All sweet until i see the strap hooked over the towball of the recovering  vehicle.  At that point i turned and walked away.  We saw 2 recovery points get torn of a navara. Both times the snatch strap and shackle went flying back towards the tow car. The second time it hit the back door.  We sat for an hour and a half watching the chaos unfold. Very unsafe practices being used in every recovery. Amazing to watch.

Dunno if it's just me, but watching some of those vides, it looks like its becoming a bit of a spectator sport.

Grab the family/mates, the awning, throw some sausages in the fridge and set yourself up on the side lines and enjoy the show.

Supose if your a local, there is fk all else to do, not a bad way for a little earn on the side.

Yeah on one clip last night there looked like a few hundred watching.............People are crowding the tracks and thats making it worse. It needs to rain to harden it up or something is going to turn to sh!t in a bigway and someone will get hurt. Some of the recoveries are bad enough without spectators wandering into the fray.

The local copper needs to go and set up a breathaliser that will get rid of a few people as well

What it needs is people to deflate their tyres lower then 18 psi, then they won't get bogged and nobody will have anything to watch. The sand isn't the issue, it's the clueless drivers the problem. Someone will get killed there one day in a recovery gone wrong, due to the bad techniques being used or even impatient drivers racing close past bogged vehicles,  I'm surprised it hasn't happened yet actually.

Thought the same thing looking at some of them the other day - apparently pretty clueless group just of the side of the track, all standing around saying "WTF do we do now" ???, while other cars are passing them at 40k, 2m's away :'(

Maybe they need a big sign at the end of the bitumen "Reduce tyre pressure to 18psi here" & every once in a while, someone official ( :police: or Transport) needs to set up & ensure it's being done ??? They do it with snow chains down South, why not with sand tyre pressure up here ???

Inskip is a non event. Coming off the barge yesterday towing the near 2t camper we stopped and started 6 odd times, changed tracks, and drove up around a bogged caravan at the start of the cutting. You'd be a complete numpty to bugger it up - and there are plenty haha.
They will finally get some rain today and the site will go quiet again.

I’m enjoying watching all these idiots getting bogged, but have to admit driving through it myself the other week and having a large audience ready to ridicule if you stuff up does add extra pressure. 

So I’m assuming when some of these people are getting bogged, the large crowds giving their opinions and the line of 4WD’s behind them are making them panic. This inturn make them cut corners/make silly decisions in there panicked state.

So agree it won’t be long before someone is seriously hurt or killed.  Guarantee it won’t be long before the National Parks lay timber tracks like they do on Fraser.  That won’t fix the problem, but rather transfer the problem to Fraser.

All the timber / rubber tracking will do is push the trouble spot out further .. Only got to see the big holes and step ups dug as you get to the tracking on the Teewah 3rd cutting / Lieshia track entrance and the ones on the Fraser bypass tracks ..
At Inskip there used to be a water truck do a run from the exit point to the barge in peak times to keep the out and in tracks wet [ think it was supplied by the MANTA RAY ]  Must have got too expensive for them to operate  ..
Since someone on Swag posted about electric brake controllers activating trailer brakes  on sand, I have noticed  that on "  SOME " of  the trailer / caravans, the  wheels seem to be being dragged as if the brakes are partialy on and causing the tug to bog.

Or are the brakes on/dragging because people don't realise they need to turn off their traction control (which activates the brakes) ?

You don't need momentum when you have correct air pressure.
Title: Re: Facebook Group, I Got Bogged at Inskip Point
Post by: Beachman on October 05, 2017, 02:28:20 PM
Problem is everyone’s definition of Airing down is different. For example the other week at Fraser I came 2 separate bogged 4WDs blocking the track. So had no choice but to help.

First question I ask is what’s your tyre pressure. First said 25 and second said 22. Told them the first then they need to do is drop to at least 18 or lower and like expected they get all smart A@se with me and say that’s the pressure they normally run and they have never had a problem before. 

I then remind them I’m currently running 15/16 and your bogged and I’m not.

Yeah but it needs to be about 500m back up the road where the airing down spot is so the wombats don't hold everybody else up. Last trip up we had to drive through a maze of vehicles who decided to air down at the start of the cutting on to the beach.

metres from the tar, big cruiser and big van ( not off Roader) buy the look of it. We cross with 4 adults in vehicle loaded in rear plus box trailer in herendous conditions, it took 4 hours from Inskip point to Happy Valley having to use a mix of inland and beach, both have which were fairly chopped up, Thank christ my brother knows the island extremely well.

I have a question, what sort of trailer weight are people willing to put over the beach.  And what pressures do you drop the trailer to.

Hi Ben, I have towed my 8,2m boat it sat on a triaxle trailer with skinny Holden wheels it weighted 4 ton loaded we let the tires down to 13psi we had no troubles on the way up to the Fraser fishing comp and at the comp, launching the boat we had no troubles and getting back up to the houses no worries, But did get bogged on the way home behind Indian Head as it was dug up, After a week of the comp, but we hooked two more 4wds on the front of my 4wd it took a couple of goes but made it through, Towed it back down the island and on and off the barge to Inskip no worries, Craig

[/quote]
Match truck and trailer tire tread ground contact lengths and you should have no troubles / turn off traction controls and turn trailer brake controls to zero, for the sand .
If you can, Do an air down at home when your FULLY  loaded before you leave to say "  16 PSI " on a rear wheel of your truck, Measure the tread / ground  contact length then let your trailer tire down till it matches that length .. It willl most likely be a few PSI lower than the truck tire, given the trailer might be lighter .
Note them down so you know what pressure to go to when you get to the air down point at the beach .

i drop trailer tyres to atleast the same as the vehicles, sometimes slightly lower. If you aren't comfortable towing up Fraser with the lower pressure, then inflate them a touch once on the hard sand of the island (assuming you time the run for a couple of hours either side of low tide, which is what we do). Have seen a mates caravan not like the lowered tyre pressure once on the hard sand of Fraser, it squirmed all over the place, so stopped and reinflated the tyres and all was good. Inskip is where many get stuck aswell as getting off the hard sand into camp, would rather spend time deflating and inflating tyres, then trying to unbog a stuck vehicle and trailer. For many it is like a race up the island the minute they get off the barge, pull over and let them go, if you want to then reinflate tyres a touch and enjoy the drive up the beach.

Its like the first lap at Bathurst when everyone gets off the barge. Hook Point is like the top of the mountain and the main beach is like con rod straight.

Way back when I used to work for Telstra Mobiles, we'd often get calls "Will my mobile work on Fraser?"

Official answer was it may or may not, depending on model of phone, where you are in regard to the various towers & so on :-\

Unofficial answer, usually after they'd hung up, was always "For God's sake, WHY would you want your mobile to work" ??? ::)

Last Saturday, the long weekend Saturday one young fella in his lux was 3rd or 4th in line for the first barge of the day. I did over here him talking and worked out it was his first time on he beach in his new second hand lux....he didn't make the barge as I don't think he knew how to engage 4WD. His mates waited on the other side. A 79 came to his rescues as we were heading across.

My STAUNS are set at 22 and I didn't have an issue. Left them at 22 for the nine days on fraser although the rain helped heaps.

We leave Melbourne for Fraser on Friday for our second trip there towing the KK, last time we were there in August so it was a little cooler. I'm running slightly larger tyres this trip but they are a bit more aggressive so will be interesting to see how they go last time we ran 18psi on tug and camper and had no issues at all however I'm guessing conditions will be a little different this time around with the temps being a little warmer so will just have to suck it and see however we will be airing down to at least 18 before we hit the sand lol ;).

We are staying at Central station for a couple of nights then back up to Cathedrals, any hints on best route to Central station from the manta ray barge would be awesome.

Cheers

 For me the easiest / quickest would be to Eurong then out to Central station that way depending on traffic / time of day.
The Southern lakes drive in from Dilly used to be a bit thin and rough and steep in places, but less traffic from memory, not that the drive from Eurong is much smoother.

We leave Melbourne for Fraser on Friday for our second trip there towing the KK, last time we were there in August so it was a little cooler. I'm running slightly larger tyres this trip but they are a bit more aggressive so will be interesting to see how they go last time we ran 18psi on tug and camper and had no issues at all however I'm guessing conditions will be a little different this time around with the temps being a little warmer so will just have to suck it and see however we will be airing down to at least 18 before we hit the sand lol ;).

We are staying at Central station for a couple of nights then back up to Cathedrals, any hints on best route to Central station from the manta ray barge would be awesome.

Cheers

Luke

We did pretty much the same on our last trip.
Not much sun at Central if you're relying on solar power.

We took the first cutting before big Eurong signs, it's much less traveled and a bit more interesting. But it was very narrow, you will get scratches through there.
The next entry through the little creek would be my pick. It's less traveled the the main entry behind the resort.
But you eventually have to get onto the main track and bounce your way through the 'bus bumps' no matter which track you take to Central.

Just got back a week ago, took a group of folks largely unknown to me in terms of 4WD ability, and some definitely novice. I had warned them that Inskip was potentially the most difficult spot. Not sure what they thought when we breezed through there on the way in and way out. We did have a few recoveries, myself included, as the inland tracks were very cut up, with lots of hot dry sand in places, but the usual choke points were perhaps the easiest I’ve ever experienced them.
We left in the rain so super easy driving, only see on that group, people getting stuck at Inskip later that same day.

When did you get back Jules...they must have did maintenance on the inland tracks as when we hit them on Thursday they were in really good condition, flat smooth and could cruise at speed limit 30km/hr. The rain also helped.

When we were there the first week of the QLD school holidays the National Parks had a couple of water trucks whose sole job was wetting down the inland tracks.

So the normal ‘soft/steep’ spots were a piece of cake.

They leveled off a lot of the inland tracks on the 3rd just after the rain which made a big improvement around central.

That would be it....we went inland on the 4th or 5th

I'm guessing there would have been some decent washouts after the rain on the Monday night.

I drove up on the 29th and even the beach was hard driving, really soft (got off the barge about 30mins after low) everyone was talking about how bad it was.  Drove back on the 3rd after the rain, Orchid to the barge in about 1hr 45, could have done the entire run in 2WD.

29th Sep?? We were on the first barge on the 29th.....drove all the way to sandy cape and I thought the beach was a good.  It was a little soft at the bottom end as the tide was still going out

We stayed at rainbow on the 14th and it was wet lol jumped on the barge on the Monday and to say it was a little damp was an understatement after the deluge at rainbow in the kk and the guys we were travelling having their first camper trailer trip with a 4 month old we decided that a couple of nights at kingfisher might be a good plan instead of central station ;) was the right move as the amount of rain was crazy. Driving to kingfisher via Euronav was quite the experience with it almost like driving through a creek the whole way lol. After two days at kingfisher we headed to cathedrals and the weather really improved. It was our second trip to Fraser and it was awesome having another car with us, allowed us to see a lot more of the island and do some of the more challenging tracks. The week was amazing though and managed to snag my first decent tailer which was a good experience. Was a great trip will post some pics at some point.

Well just had an awesome 9 days on Fraser. What a beautiful place to spend some time. This was our third time on the island and just want to comment on how things are changing, and not for the better.
 A few simple things I was taught and read about just as common courtesy to fellow travellers and for safety are now few and far between. So so many self absorbed fkn morons all over the place now, the most common thing that’s gone is headlights on on the beach, really how hard is it to flick them on so fellow drivers can see you. Using your indicators to signal your intention is also hardly ever used now too. My biggest problem is the complete fkn morons that either stop in the middle of the main travel line (hard sand on the beach) and the other fkn idiots who just decide that it’s cool to either throw a fishing line across it (like the hero camped just sth of Dundaburra a few days ago) or just park up and expect everyone else to hard to travel up in the loose Shit sand because your to fkn lazy to park at the top
 Of the beach and walk your lazy ass down to the water. Then there’s the idiots that park smack bang in the middle and put their hazards on while they have a stroll in the water and also expect everyone else to make their way around you, then have the hide to try justify that by saying you’ve been there X amount of times (like that gives you special exemption) as an excuse to your ignorance. Ffs ppl, have a bit of respect for your fellow traveller and use a bit of common sense when driving the island so it’s enjoyable and safe for everyone. Anyway I hope everyone has a great time if ya traveling over to Fraser and also have a great Xmas, my rant is over. Lol

read that guys rant and thought whilst there is merit in some of what he wrote, driving with headlights on is something I have never done, nor do I indicate, i just follow the road rules as we are meant to do and stick to the left. Can't blame some people for how they park on the beach either, the way some dickheads speed close by families / anyone, is the reason i use my 4wd to block where we are fishing these days. The amount of times i've seen clowns drive through somewhere they easily could have just gone around and made it safer for those parked on the beach, is enough for me to protect my family first instead of caring that they can't sit on 80kph the whole way down the beach.

I also saw that rant on Facebook and couldn’t be bothered replying, but quite a few didn’t agree with his post.

I don’t turn my headlights on during the day as I personally don’t think it’s needed.
I will indicate if I have  another 4WD close behind me, or the 4WD if front is hedging his bets on what line to take or the 4WD in front is towing a big Boat/Caravan then I will be nice and indicate to say they can stay on the hard sand while I go up onto the soft.
Like many other I occasionally park near the water to keep the kids safe from the guys who think the beach is a racetrack.

For me going to the beach is meant to be relaxing, so I’m not going to get upset because I’ve got to do some soft sand driving going around a family. More likely the people who get upset are the ‘hero’s’ running full tyre pressure and this 20 second detour turns into hard work.

Makes for some hard towing and quick  shift n pedal work at times to get past behind them .

Well, lots of ads for cars, show them being driven on the beach, often, in the salt water.
I seem to remember a Hilux, rolling off a cliff, then getting washed up the beach as was as good as new.

Even an ad for new HQ Holden, showed a wave of water pouring over the car as it was being driven in the surf, so, if someone sees that, I guess they think  its ok.

These dual cab utes are sold all over the world but I would reckon that hardly anybody modifies them or  uses them the way many Australians do.

But the point about research is well made. When I talk to people in my travels I am often stunned at how little they know. I dont know much but just about the very first thing I learnt when I had my ute was watch the weight.

I guess people watch the 4x4 advertorials on TV and think "how easy is that" and off they go to the accessories shop with chequebook in hand and visions of travelling the country like Pat Callinan.

I guy I was travelling with in a near new fully optioned Ranger and towing a blinged (and probably heavy) MDC camper bent his chassis a little bit crossing the Gascoyne River earlier this year. I didnt see him cross but another who did said he started bouncing ... a lot,  with the car and camper going in different directions.

The car was still driveable and  the owner, who was from Sydney, baled out, leaving his camper in Carnarvon and heading home.     

Sad and expensive end to trip.

Yeah, but the roof also acts to support some of the load pulling down on the back of the chassis. Cut all that away and put a 1.5m tray on the back 300kg of towball weight then essentially double it by dumping it through a gully and they will bend just as effectively.

Thats when most of the utes buckle too, on a dip in the road. Vehicle hits the dip at speed, suspension compresses and meets the axle coming up. Then it is just a physics question of the load traveling down and then having to be accelerated up again. You could easily find the load experiencing 1.5-2G, so your 800kg that its comfortable carrying is applying 1600kg down force at the rear axle. 60 odd kg of rims and rubber or jerries at the extremities aren't a good addition either
Add into the mix a 2000kg trailer that is now pitching into the dip you are coming out of and it can get messy really quickly.

I was wondering if that canopy is home made, being the different coloured door? Maybe he's already busted one leaving it open and driving off also, so might be store bought.
My dual cabs canopy is custom made, i shortened the standard tray length of 1800mm by 150mm to reduce rear overhang, then put the fridge and spare wheel inside at the very front to keep weight as far forward as possible for that very reason pictured below. As you say, a little research is all that's needed

It amazes me that people are still bending chassies .
There are chassie strengthening weld in adapter plates available for nearly every model 4x4 or 2x4 ute/wagon that is on the market .
Most of the kit are around the $200 dollar mark for the kit only ( plus fitting/welding ) , why would you not if planning to do a big holiday towing a trailer or loaded up to the hilt be getting the chassie strengthened to at least reduce the risk of bending your chassie and like in most cases ruining your long awaited/planned and expansive trip .

there is enough steel in a GQ/80/GU/100 chassis to make 5 modern dual cabs... sometimes over engineering is a good idea.

most people dont even know these kits exist - and putting on on my new 50,000 dream ute? Wonder how that would affect warranty?
 
Nil research.. most people listen to the car salesman "yea mate, she can tow anything" :worthles: read "towing capacity 3500kg" and believe it. until its too late.

Its hard to figure out who is the most to blame really...
I think car manufacturers have a lot to answer for with fictional figures,
I think caravan/camper companies also have a lot to answer for. Selling people things they cannot legally tow.. whether the owner realises it or not.

I also think owners need to grow a brain cell and realise you cannot put that much weight behind an axle and expect nothing to happen.

ya know.. she'll be alright

There are chassie strengthening weld in adapter plates available for nearly every model 4x4 or 2x4 ute/wagon that is on the market .
Most of the kit are around the $200 dollar mark for the kit only ( plus fitting/welding ) , why would you not if planning to do a big holiday towing a trailer or loaded up to the hilt be getting the chassis strengthened to at least reduce the risk of bending your chassis
Even cheaper for some kits and a qualified welding shop would be roughly the $130 an hour  .https://www.superiorengineering.com.au/chassis-repair-plate-spainish-models-21680 (https://www.superiorengineering.com.au/chassis-repair-plate-spainish-models-21680)

personally I still think it comes back to poor design,and the axle not far enough back... move it back to support the weight from factory would go a long way... add to that trying to save weight and money = fail.

And then we can fit a longer tray.

there is enough steel in a GQ/80/GU/100 chassis to make 5 modern dual cabs... sometimes over engineering is a good idea.

Hi All, I know two blokes this year up the Cape that bent the chassy on the same late model dual cabs, No one would fix them up north or around Cairns, so they left there CTs and gear at Weipa and drove them home and fixed them self, after straitening the chassy they added a bit of 75 x 50 x 10mm angle up each side under the tray legs welded to the tray mounts job done, drove back up and had a another few weeks up there at Penny then home no worries, cost buggerall why do not the makers of the 4wds do this from new, Craig

People want 'Performance', so they make them as light as possible.
People want 'Fuel Economy', so they make them lighter still.
People want to carry 'Max. stuff', so they make the cargo area as big as possible without changing anything else.
Thus we get what we ask for.

Being under weight in his BT50 means diddly squat, when he has all that weight (2 x wheels and ball weight of trailer for a start) hanging so far behind the rear axle. He likely thought he was ok and doing the right thing, but that's the result in the end.

Watched the guy's Facebook video and fb write up...

He kept mentioning that it was just a simple accident where he bottomed out at speed - hitting a ditch in the sand at Inskip en route to Fraser...

When suddenly the rear chassis fulcrumed over the bump stops, bending the chassis....   bingo!

So if it's an accident, does that make it an insurance job?

Isn't that Landrovers theory too? I think the recommend to half the recommended load when heading off road.

It's funny speaking to members in Gen Pop (I don't really get along with the general population) and they are trying to drag their boat, caravan along the sand because it is rated to tow 3 tonne.

My theory, the laws of physics don't lie.....size and resistance and a tiny engine don't work well together.

did someone not sleep well last night?....maybe the guy could simply deflate his tyres more and not use speed to get across sand, and hence not hit dips so fast and break his vehicle. The guy has made 2 mistakes (the speed which he mentions but not why he went so fast and the weight hanging so far back) and going by his video reply still doesn't acknowledge  that....it was just an accident apparently.  Deflating sufficiently is a simple concept many 4wd owners can learn, much like the muppet bogged at Flinders yesterday that refused to drop his tyres below 35psi, telling anyone that was suggesting so to go away if that's their idea of helping him. There is no right tyre pressure to deflate to, but if you need to hit stuff fast, you likely aren't at the right pressure.

Well, warranty you could throw out the window, but I don't know of many that have had much luck claiming a warranty on a vehicle they have managed to bend.

Insurance; different companies have different attitudes but most go with the 'roadworthy vehicle' classification and the company does advise to talk to an engineer first. Different states have different rules and some may require a modification plate as you have modified the chassis. The plate design is within the design advice given in the Ford supplied chassis repair instructions (can't find my copy now though).

Beefing it up above the bump stops will mean less chance of needing a warranty or insurance claim for a bent rear end, but of course, strengthening it there can lead to failure elsewhere :-[.

We saw 2-3x per day when we were at Fraser, guys bogged with their pressures over 30psi.

Nearly everyone eventually let us help them air down, and everyone who did drove out.  Those that didn't, we left them, as we weren't prepared to damage our vehicles if these guys didn't want our help.  One guy had no recovery gear, no compressor, no shovel, but was there for a week.  Didn't even know his 105 could be put into 4wd low.  How he made it up to Ngala Rocks had us amazed

We had one instructor, one guy with 20+ years experience and another with 5-6 years experience in our group, so figured we knew what works.

Speed does nothing in sand other than get you in trouble.  Much better airing down to the lowest safe pressure and driving slowly with good momentum, which is different to speed

Would be a god idea to limit the numbers more there i reckon...I was told Straddie has reduced it's numbers in some areas by 20% after last year, they had issues with the dump points being full and overflowing / closed for several days last Xmas. I believe they had to file a report to some environmental agency and then had to implement a new management plan, which has brought about the reduction in numbers.

Yep they are banned, though some would still use them ..
 We use a 12 v pump and roughly a  6" x  2.5 " section of a spear to filter  water into 4 x 25 ltr drums from little fresh to brackish seepage streams along the beach, just scoop out a shallow depression and lay it in  / creeks for showers and clothes washing .. Away from  the camping areas of course . Never had any health issues in 25 years .
You do still get some very fine sand through the filter and pump into the drums .

Hi,
     Perhaps the misguided macho enthusiastic approach of the recovery driver.
Getting stuck, has to be worn by that driver, but the damage caused by the recovery was undeserved and unfortunate.

That's either the latest dual cab Hilux or a Dmax , the van looks like a MDC XT17 Off Road Hybrid Caravan..
Looking at the ute..

Looking at the SPECs of that caravan as from http://www.marketdirect.com.au/xt17#specifications (http://www.marketdirect.com.au/xt17#specifications)

Looks like so much work has gone into the setup, but it's a bit sad really as the overloading ended in a ruined holiday.

Looking at the ute..
  • Rear tires looks to have a lot of air pressue, guess the van would be the same.
  • That's an extended tray, could be upto an extra meter, and a very extended tow ball
  • The tray looks very loaded and some reason no tray sides. Petrol, Diesel, must have a generator, so much gas, as the van will have gas as well

Looking at the SPECs of that caravan as from http://www.marketdirect.com.au/xt17#specifications (http://www.marketdirect.com.au/xt17#specifications)
  • Ball 200kg -- Very heavy Tow Ball before laoding
  • GTM 3,000kg
  • Gas Cylinders 2 x 9kg
  • Jerry Cans   2 x 20L -- probably drawbar

Looks like so much work has gone into the setup, but it's a bit sad really as the overloading ended in a ruined holiday.

:cheers:



The ute is a Mazda BT50
The caravan is more likely the smaller MDC xt12 or similar
I wish when I was contracting I got payed metre rates using your meter measurement, not sure the tray is a meter longer than standard
We are all just guessing
The gas bottle and jerry cans may be empty

I'm waiting for the owners explanation video, saying they weren't overloaded, but just hit a bump and whackadoodle! Even though they never weighed it on a weigh bridge,  its all guestimates.

He used to have an F150 someone here said... probably easily carried 4ton.. Chassis was probably made of steel, compared to modern tin...  He's bought the new beaut ute with "on paper" figures of what it can carry... expected it would have to carry at least same as the Effy, and away he went... but as someone said - look at the distance on the towbar tongue to the chassis, its almost acres - fark loads of leverage.

Because people ignore the conditions at their peril.
They seem to think that you can drive anywhere in a 4WD, with it setup for a bitumen Highway.
Just like a lot of steering wheel attendants think you can drive everywhere at the posted speed limit.
Then blame everything/everybody else for the calamity they cause.

A bit like laughing at kids when they fall down I suppose..??

The fact that Inskip is the first bit of sand you touch on the way to Fraser and it just happens to often be the softest and trickiest bit, mixed with the fact that the world is full of armchair experts. That usually means the poor sap that just hasn’t had a chance to get a feel for their setup driving in sand hits the soft stuff, gets stuck and all the experts chime in with a world of awesome advise.

Generally the same poor sap that got stuck on the way over has had a lot more time driving in the island to get their technique right and will come back feeling super comfortable in their setup and would easily cross Inskip without any dramas time and time again.

Having said that though, there are always those that do really think their road going 4wd/AWD will just cruise straight off the bitumen and onto the barge without touching tyre pressures or assessing the situation first.

It seems a lot of types have more money than brains  and are full of Arrogance and Ignorance or Just plain Dumb ...
And FAIL to apply the most basic  Gnats brain worth of  effort in learning whats required of driving / towing through a soft rutted sandy track before getting there.
Its NOT like its a Black art that is only known by a few Masters to be passed on to a selected few ..
The What and How Too is in your face everywhere up there and yet the "  SHEEPLE "  blindly do the same thing over and over .

Prime Example :
Recently at the Sign posted "  AIR DOWN  " point a group puled up and started airing down trucks and trailers, Along comes their mate driving and towing a mobile 4x4 & camper catalogue display, pulls up and asked by one of his groupies ..
"  You going to air down " . Reply was " I dont need too with the gear Ive got, But you all will need too "  in a smart arse condecending
 tone ..
With that,  The big noting Show pony took off out to the beach exit point with a big exhaust roar and the others followed ..
We finished airing down went to the exit point and Low and Behold two truck lengths out on the track, here is Show pony DOWN to the chassis throwing a huge sand cloud all over his BIG rig with all his lesser mates  getting stuck trying to get him out ..
 Result was Exit and Entry tracks blocked  and peoples Holidays being put on hold Till the Ignorant Arrogant Goose got clear of the track .

I do see the funny side. I just don’t get the clear enjoyment people seem to get at seeing others suffer expensive damage, like the guy laughing hysterically at the dude who has just had his bullbar ripped off.

I took my girlfriend to Fraser Island 15 years ago. We hired a little Suzuki thingy out of Noosa for $130 a day and drove out there, stayed at Kingfisher Island for a night and somewhere else another night. I didn’t know anything about 4WD’ing; I didn’t even let the tyres down let alone take recovery gear. I didn’t get bogged, that little Suzuki was amazing. 15 years later, that girlfriend is my wife and we tow a camper behind a Prado and take our 3 kids on our own adventures. One day I’ll take my kids to Fraser (and will almost certainly get bogged myself when I do, I’m still an off road novice).

Anyway, seeing people openly ridicule others for making mistakes when embarking on what is clearly one of their first adventures in the place I had my own first off-road adventure has clearly made me come over all preachy. Please be a person that helps the novice out, and save the laughter for around the campfire.

Here in S.A we currently have the anti car on beach people pushing to ban cars from beaches as they say you shouldn't be mixing cars and people/kids on a beach.
We have a couple that aren't that big and your restricted to 10kms an hour, you can't really do much as they're  flat pretty much hard like a highway. (Some somehow still get bogged)

So my question is after seeing all of the posts on the I got bogged on idiot island, are there people or groups trying to restrict/stop/police, make more rules?
Because after seeing alot of it, it would not be surprising to hear of such things.

I agree that it is not  particularly funny when  cars are damaged.

But surely if  showing videos of people bogged and subsequent recoveries that either go right or go wrong in a big way saves  a few novices from similar strife it is a good thing.

I daresay there are plenty of 4WD owners who have never experienced soft sand and may be sceptical about the benefits of reduced tyre pressures but the pictures are worth millions of words of advice.

you'd be surprised at how many of them are not on their first outings....we have rescued heaps there over the years, the first question i ask is "what tyre pressures are you running?". Many a time the answer you get back tells you the person knows about lowering pressures but just couldn't be bothered doing it, or flatly refuses to lower tyre pressures even though you just easily drove up to where they are bogged, then easily drive away again leaving them to sort it out themself because they apparently know better....but are bogged to the door sills.

It's not here yet but its coming.
The main things stopping it are:

1. The Rainbow Beach community is built on being the access to Fraser Island and the town could not survive in any meaningful way without the income the visitors provide.

2. Teewah Beach is a gazetted Road. There are prvately owned properties at Teewah and south of First cutting which rely on
access from the beach.

In saying that though I can see pressure starting to build from the environmental and safety points about restricting access to a degree. Whether this restriction is by way of (hefty) fee increases, an annual restriction of numbers I do not know.

THe unfortunate thing is for every idiot you see in a video there are 10,20 or even 100 who get up or down the beach with no fuss or damage.

I went up to Rainbow with some friends last Sunday, I haven't been up for a couple of years as a tourist, merely to use the beach as a short cut from Maryborough or Rainbow home during the week when its basically empty, and I was pleasantly surprised at the numbers of people in comparrison to the news reports.

There were a few stupid acts at the deep hole in the lagoon on the way out to Rainbow Point but really most people were pretty sensible. What was interesting was the hype that had been built up around saw a fairly large crowd of people hanging around waiting for things to happen, which generally didn't happen all that often.

From a personal point of view, and I have made my thoughts on what needs to happen in my Noosa North Shore thread I don't care if they shut the beach down, because I will maintain access, but that is a very narrow and negative viewpoint to have. I want my kids to be able to enjoy it as I did when I was young and a teenager spending weeks / a month up there camping at a time.

I think some very simple steps could be untertaken to educate and decrease the issues currently facing inskip, but the rangers on the ground don't seem to have any power to do so. By simple things I mean education about tyre pressure and beach driving, with emphasis on getting on and off the beach, regular maintenance of the cuttings and perhaps a more formalised access track onto Inskip.

As for the hole at Rainbow, they come and go, but this is the first one I have seen right at the bottom of one of the large dunes. Whilst NPWS may argue to let nature take its course some underpinning of that hole would go along way to stabilising that dune and protecting it. But there are people much better qualified than me to make that decision.

Cheers Nomad  :cheers:

part of Teewah Beach was closed off to vehicles several years ago, it's no big deal as this gives a vehicle free zone between i think it's track one and track 3 beach entry points these days (i think they removed track 2 entry?), you can drive South from track 1 or North from track 3, just can't drive the beach between there which is a relatively small area really. There was a push a while back to stop vehicle access around Hook Point at Fraser Island, they were using migratory birds as the reason for doing so, but it doesn't appear to have gone any further (though maybe there are people still pushing for it?). It'll sadly take a death at Inskip before anything changes there.

Yep track two used to be the best one. It had the stream running through it. Its now the unused carpark in the middle of nowhere. The frying pan was closed off at Noosa end as well for the migratory birds....apparently they fly over from Russia or somewhere like that.

You have to admit, there are plenty among us who don't help our cause. One of our favourite things to do is go down to our local 4WD access beach with a fridge full of drinks and lunch, set up the awnings and hang out on the beach all day. But when I go down there and I see tracks all over the back dunes in the vegetated areas, and dickheads tearing down the beach doing 80 with a bunch of people in the back of the ute I can't help thinking to myself they're doing their best to bring us all closer to the day when the 4WD access gets shut down.

At nearly all beach access points, the signs warn you of soft sand and to air down. If people want to be F-wits and disregard the proper process, then they deserve all the ridicule that they get!  ::)

Just spent a weekend away in the New England/Oxley Wild Rivers area.

Had a fantastic view of a 15cm deep puddle that was about 3m long, solid base, couple of distinct lines through it.

Whole variety of vehicles through it - everything from Patrol/Land Cruisers to a Ford Focus.

Couple of observations:
-The Ford Focus did as well as some 4x4s
-Tyre condition (not pressure) seemed to be the crucial thing

I suspect the Focus was running nearly new tyres (certainly on the front) and therefore had as much tread depth as a 1/2 worn 4x4 tyre (~6mm). We went through quite easily as we had 1,000km old tyres on (still at highway pressure) and so did some others. Other stuff was going through at some interesting angles... just something to think about.... perhaps getting 80,000km out of set of 4x4 tyres isn't the best way of ensuring you have plenty of grip when you need it.

yes those and many campers are heavy on the tow ball, but a 300mm extension puts massive loads onto the rear sub frame and tow bar.

Was Bloody nice over there this year too Rummy ..Very quiet, most times only see a couple of trucks head up the beach every half hour + or so ..
Most of the exposed rock was doable along the beach [ no bypass's ] within an hour of High tide, just had to count the wave wash and idle around the rocks on the wet sand [ Poyungan, mac glocklan,  Yidney ] .
Had filled in nicely with sand by the 10th day  . Wide flat beach with a few small whoopty do's starting to form and a  few small shallow double beach lagoons higher up to the high tide marks

I went to Fraser last year and I consider myself an above average beach driver, but going through the entry to the beach I did feel extra pressure with multiple phones filming you, plus people lined up along the entry waiting to laugh should you make a mistake and get bogged.

Agree most people who get bogged deserve it because they don't let there tyres down, but what you don't see are the cars parked down the side or people standing along the track which gives you no choice but to take the chewed up section.

A lot of people have been asking about stats on which vehicles get bogged and what vehicles to buy. Heres the stats for thursday last week...

18 x 200 series
6 x Prado's
4 x 76 series
4 x Hilux's
2 x Dmax's
1 x VW Amarok
1 x D22 Navara
1x GQ Patrol

These numbers was only for vehicles that got bogged that day, some of these vehicles were towing trailers, some were not..    ;D

Written by someone who doesn’t like Toyota. 

Agree quite a few 200 series Landcruisers do get bogged on that stretch, but that’s got more to do with arrogance towing huge vans and lot letting tyres down enough.

Reason there aren’t many new 4 cylinder utes on the list is they are all in the garage at home because of the recent police crackdown on illegal lift kits.

As much as we like a campfire, Due to dead set idiots covering them with sand and not putting them out properly   http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-27/campfire-warning-after-young-boy-burns-feet-teewah-beach-qld/10308174 (http://www.abc.net.au/news/2018-09-27/campfire-warning-after-young-boy-burns-feet-teewah-beach-qld/10308174) I reckon it might be a good thing ..   
Further to this Wankers smashing bottles in a fire pit aswell and then covering it with sand .. Been on the receiving end of this a couple of times at different camp areas .                           
 Add to that clowns not reusing the one fire pit and turning the whole camp area to a blackened charcoal  sand mix inturn everything that touches it turns black .

We Jeep owners can laugh at these jokes knowing that we own an EXTREMELY capable 4wds that could possibly catch on fire.

Perhaps 200 series owners should also accept that they own EXTREMELY expensive 4wds that are pretty much guaranteed to get bogged as soon as they see sand.....

80 Serries, bogged snatched out.
GQ patrol, bogged has 500,000,000 attempts at getting out and turns the whole start of the hill climb into a massive slop hole, gets snatched out.

I think we'd all like to keep a sierra in the glovebox for playing with, but try taking a family of 4 across the country in one!

Exactly. And it’s the same physics that makes the Zook so good to play around in that makes the 200 series count for such high numbers in the getting bogged at inskip tally.

It’s not brand bashing, just science. ;)













And besides, we all still know Jeeps really are EXTREMELY capable 4wds..... :P

We Jeep owners can laugh at these jokes knowing that we own an EXTREMELY capable 4wds that could possibly catch on fire.

Perhaps 200 series owners should also accept that they own EXTREMELY expensive 4wds that are pretty much guaranteed to get bogged as soon as they see sand.....

Pure garbage. Having jumped from a WG Grand Overland V8 into a 200 Diesel Sahara there is simply 0 comparison. Newer jeeps dunno and to be honest dont care. The 200 is superb in sand.

So humor is lost on 200 series owners. Got it. ;)

Keep throwing all of those burning Jeep jokes around, we can all have a laugh. :D
Don’t dare say that a 2.8 ton land barge gets stuck in sand, apparently that offends people. :(

For the record I was referring to JK Wrangers, as if I’d say a Cherokee was an extremely capable off road rig..... ::) :P

When I drove out to the barge just after NY there was about a dozen people on chairs in the shade watching the antics.  When I idled up with the camper in tow they all lept to their feet with the cameras at the ready.  I gave them a look of 'WTF are you looking at' as I idled past in 2nd gear, must have spoiled their day.

With tyres at 16 PSI you don't need much mumbo to get through there.

Ngala rocks is a joke these days.  Was almost 30 vehicles in the queue waiting for some muppet to let his tyres down.

mates were on Fraser for Xmas / Newyears.... they gave up on the idea of going to Sandy Cape, reckoned the line up there was just as you said and refused to sit around waiting an hour for vehicles to get unbogged.

Agree, we are finding more rubbish left behind in the remotest places in the Clarence Valley.
It's like it is their right to be there, do what they want cause I have bought a 4wd.
Cashed up bogan mine workers buy 4wd drives with all the fruit and thinking it's is their God given right to do as they like,
Very disappointing.

The VMR / CoastGuard units up North are finding the same thing except up there the miners are buying bigger & bigger boats, going further & further out to sea, getting into strife (half the time because they either stuffed things up or just didnt know what to do in the first place >:(), then calling for help.

Rescue groups have to then get bigger rescue boats to go out & tow these idiots home >:(

Off the top of the head, the last VMR boat commissioned up that way was 17m's long & just shy of $1 million :o, & that's one hell of a lot of sausages, because there's stuff-all funding from State Govt (of either party) >:( :'(

I know kids, yep they are only just twenty and they are earning 100K plus.
The only meal they can eat is home delivery pizza or drive thru.
Once a week a house cleaner comes in and does their &%$in washing as well.
There is a dishwashing, yet the sink is full of cups, plates and utensils.
They drive lifted Rangers with 35's,
They are working on the Pacific H/way up grade through the Clarence zvalley, operating water trucks, scapers, rollers.
They get a wet day, they go bush and rip tracks up, drive around gates or cut fences.
Must be costing State Forests & NPWS and squillion(I mean us taxpayers).

100% yes, that is the difference...my guess is, one deflated his tyres and the other didn’t, and the last guy had his deflated to a more suitable pressure....sand driving is all about tyre pressures

Post by: Pete79 on February 04, 2019, 12:19:39 PM
I thought that just proved once again that flat brim hats and Patrols don’t mix. :P

Car #1 has absolutely no idea.
The flat brim hat and sitting there throwing up sand everywhere while waiting for old mate to snatch him out proves that.

As Rummy said car #2 has dropped his pressures a bit, but he has a big tough patrol and doesn’t need to drop pressures as much as all those other less capable 4wds have to (insert Jeep joke here). ;)
Car #3 just nailed it. Correct tyre pressures and cool calm driving.

Sadly this will be the end of access.....

I’ve been on these beach’s on and off since 92 ish....never once been bogged. I’ve try to educate some drivers (wouldn’t bother even offering help to these guys) and some appreciate it as they are first timers. If they refuse to lower their tyre pressures to 20 or lower I select 1sr and drive off and leave it to somebody else.

The p-plater with blown hub who digs the holes to **** it for the next cars through deserves a smack in the ear...
Hes going to spend the weekend bogged and diggin holes for everyone as he only has 2wd. should just **** off home or to wreckers and get another hub, and 6 bolts to change it.

I blame the Qld Gov for that.

Once apon a time they all drove V8 commodores and turbo Falcons so they could hang out in the macca's car park. Once the government changed the laws and banned P platers from driving V8's and turbo's, they all went out and bought crapbox jacked up 4by's and started stuffing the beaches and bush for everyone else.

I've been chilling out with some music from a great local Sunshine Coast band this afternoon and stumbled across this little beauty.
Some modern music over a classic film from back in the day when all you needed was a bit of determination to get you where ever you wanted to go.

https://youtu.be/niiIsSq8PZs (https://youtu.be/niiIsSq8PZs)

Footage by the ledgendary George Greenough.
As best I can tell the locations are mostly in Northern NSW and Double Island Point.
Music by Band of Frequencies (https://open.spotify.com/artist/38mN06tGJPFdN5JQ2Onbbt?si=PZyZVnOXRj6Uc5fIQGvmcg)

Only Lennox lines up like that. Memories. I think that last shot going down the dune is up past where the Leisha track is now. There used to be permanent camps back up in the dunes there. This would have been dropping onto the beach out near the northern lighthouse gate back when the beach used to go all the way out there. Just a guess.
