Facebook Group, I Got Bogged at Inskip Point
« 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/
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
You don't use magic to disappear, all you need is a 4wd & a Swag ;)

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.

Yes, that page make me laugh! And cringe sometimes!

When I offer to help, the 1st question I ask is how much air in your tyres?
almost always too much, so if they don't air down I move on!

cheers

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's what I do also....i'm happy to help those that are willing to learn, but just as happy to walk / drive away past them if they think they know best.

I watch some of the vids on that page if I have the time.  It appears to me that all the vids have been filmed by the same person.  Is that correct?  As I said I don't watch them all.

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.

It's funny that I mention our Big Red climb earlier..... the misses just looked at her Facebook page, and apparently 7 years ago today we were in The Simpson Desert.

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:

I find it quite funny...........although I do reckon the guy doing it is going to film the wrong person one day and end up with a punch in the head.

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.

I use that Facebook page as a how not to guide!

Tyre pressures are king, never been stuck or even looked like it on sand... Mud is a different story

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.
