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.
yep i cringe watching many of those recoveries on there also....so many unsafe practices on show

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.
So long as it's filmed and someone creates a dedicated FB page.

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..... ;)

Hehe, was just picking up where Coolblue80 left off... ;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.
Cheers, Mike.

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.

The sand will be powdery at the moment, it hasn't rained here since 1986.

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 !!

If you were in a Jeep and it didn't overheat or catch fire, buy a lottery ticket !!  ;D ;D

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.

Spent an entire afternoon recovering guys at the entrance/exit to Tuncurry beach last Christmas...

Recovery devices of choice were a shovel and tyre deflator.  I didn't use the shovel

I counted 40 vehicles lined up on Fraser yesterday waiting for the 2 barges and thought that sucked, today that site reckons 120 something were lined up (85 towing something) and 3 barges running...would have been some wait time there.

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?
Oh that's right, people don't like trucks.
