    Default [Resolved] Help needed! Stuck in dunes on Baden Powel Drive

    Please someone out there in the cape help my brother and his father in law?

    They're in a Prado and are bellied out on a dune without any recovery equipment and not particularly "off-road tested" so called for advice but have had no luck in getting out, nothing to dig with...

    I can guarantee the rescuer will be given a great booze gift as the father in law makes wine and is quite a generous fellow!

    Blaas die wiele af!
    Druk die Jack langs die wiele in en jack hom teen die rim op en skuif sand onder die wiele in.

    Ha. Thanks Kurt... Helpful ;-)

    Pieter, dankie, ek Wil se vir hulle... But I'm not sure how successful they'll be... As the sand is dry and fine.

    Don't wanna bother anyone specifically yet as their are some replies coming in...
    But that's not a bad idea as I seem to remember he stays around Gordon's Bay... So not too far from them. At the very least he knows a fair amount of people around there.

    I wasn't aware you were allowed on those dunes.

    Anyway I am unfortunately in Ceres.

    Tell them to deflate the tyres, they don't need tools for this.

    Then on elbows and knees and scratch the sand out from under the axles.

    Next step, put it in low range and drive out.

    Its easy. Find a piece of wood to place underneath the jack, and jack 1 wheel at a time, out of the sand and push some filling sand underneath each wheel in turn.

    Yeah. A stones throw from a nice little hamlet called Grassy Park I believe?



    Anyway hopefully Micheal arrives shortly.
