    Talking

    A lot of the time when we get stuck we just tend to throw the rope out for a recovery, and most often we could self recover with a little bit of thought. Last year i was at Atlantis and beached myself on top of the big dune, all wheels turning in the air and by myself. Well fitted my air bag to my exhaust(i was already facing down hill) back of vehicle lifted lot of downward momentum and off i went down bag and all . Bag blew off at exhaust pipe. the bag was placed under my spare wheel at the back as that was the best place at the time Cheers Ian

    That sounds like one of my favourite self recovery techniques. Here executed with the help of my 1.5m hi-lift jack. If you do this with a hi-lift you have to jack it all the way to the top, otherwise the remaining piece of the bar will push into the back of your vehicle.

    Fully agree with Ian. Sometimes we tend to be cowboys without us stepping back and summing the situation up. Solution are sometimes simple if given thought. Never personally been in this situation as I like to case the area out on foot sometimes and decide which gear, tyre inflation and route to take. Sometimes have to push the Beast but in general He always comes through for me. Must say though with all fraternities I've been with each has always looked after the vehicles in convoy. Hence the trust in this forum.

    Cool

    Hi Bartho are you specifically looking for these hills. You look really all bunged up. Never been in that deep yet. Cheers Ian

    Not really, I could get over in some places and I was pushing my luck in the pics above. This is river sand dumped behind our 'hood and I started playing there with the lux. The sand it so soft, I'd get stuck the first time, then do it again another 2 or 3 times and after that a stock vehicle could get through as well. I worked my way through this area, cutting new tracks and other vehicles followed and now it is just about flat and very easy to drive on. I think I must send the building contractors a bill for compacting their land fill

    This was getting it wrong at Atlantis, dug the sand away from the right rear tyre, and then the bakkie swung round in reverse and just ambled down the dune, took about 15 minutes.....

    Dis net hom daai buurman. Japie het vir amper 3 ure in daai moddergat gesit terwyl ons probeer winch, snatch, grawe, stoot en wat alles nog. Kom Albert met die Massey Fergusson Digger loader en daar staan hy net en spin. Hy moes hom terug stoot met sy laaibak en omdraai sodat hy die loader kon anker en dan die GV met daai lang arm uit trek

    Zulucowboy, seems like you were there when the wind was howling - caught me too.

    The dune tends to feather at the top and get really soft on the leeward side of the wind - catches you unsuspectingly if you tap off the accelarator at the top of the dune - only way is to get the spade out for a bit of shovel of the soft stuff.

    Only issue is you spit sand for a day or two if the NWester is really shunting.

    Ja well my Pajero could not even get passes this point on its own steam without Herman needing to assist with the Dustbin since I had no lowrange.
