Hi all

Taking the wife and kids for some beach driving over easter. We hope to do the run along the beach on Friday so if anyone is down there and planning the same trip and would like the safty of numbers post a reply. I have the snach straps, exhaust jack and the arb air pump.

If we get through in time I looking at driving on through to southend and going on the run to Carpenter Rocks. before returning to robe

does anyone know what the beach run is like it shows on local maps??

Hi Trev,

Just one spot I would advise agains't travelling is the stretch in Canunda from Geltwood Beach through to Number Two Rocks. Have pulled a few off this beach. Its fine to travel the sand hills through the park just behind the beach and its fine to run down to Carpenters from below Number Two Rocks Camp site. You will have a ball through all of this area. Last time we were down there over new year period, great swimming area on the beach at #2 Rocks, its set behind the reef.

Should be stacks of people around if you do get into bother, please make sure you use a sand flag as its getting down rite dangerous along the south coast.

We were advised not to go on to Geltwood Beach by a local in a Suzuki with 10osi in the tyres. But as luck would have it we drove down at Cameron Rocks and along the beach. Tell you what, I was very glad to get off Geltwood Beach at the Oil Rig Track as I was pushing 3500 revs in first high range and sinking with 15psi in the tyres. Admittedly I was pushing the track through virgin sand(blown over the night before, no doubt) for the rest of the convoy to have an easier run.

The South Coast beach from Robe to Carpenters Rocks is a magic place.

Trev,

Some pretty big Hills to get the family over, is the snach (sic) strap a piece of lingerie or something? .....hope the Prado is up to it!........ better throw in the snaTch strap, winch & highlift jack ...............very soft sand in some sections, paricularly some of the beaches. Will give you a ring if we end up down that way

cheers Jagg
