Re: Brisbane day trips
I got out to Bribie Island on Sunday.... geez, talk about busy!
I'm still getting use to driving the Jeep on sand, had to do a 3 point turn on soft sand near one of the swimming holes and started to bog down, so got off the accelerator, tried again and could feel it digging down so again got off the gas. Then realised I had to just give it some right foot and all was good.
The suspension is the real weak link on this car for offroad, really throws you around, coming back off the beach there is a step up, but you have to carry speed to get through the soft stuff. A hilux and patrol were stuck getting back up off the beach, the Jeep just went around them, but with the speed I had at the step up it really launched. Lots of bangs from the suspension as she bounced around, and a few looks, but we made it.
At the swimming hole, this little guy came skating across the water and tried to jump on my back, scared the crap out of me. I think its a yellow faced whip.....
