Re: Sand Driving Training - Stockton

I cant make it, just back from 5 weeks in Europe, maybe one thats closer to home in the future. When is this happening? I am interested in seeing a video to see how it all goes....up and down..... hopefully not round and round...

I had a quick run along Blacksmiths Beach today. Lots of DEEP soft sand but used the trick of keeping your boot into it and letting the GC electronics do their thing.

It has been a lovely sunny, warm day up here on the coast.

Wow, a long but really great day. I'm sure everyone who came along learnt some new skills and found out how capable the GC is. And a beaut group of people - thanks to you all.

I'm sure others will post photos, but here is one to start.

Re: Sand Driving Training - Stockton

GMWK2 Thank you very much for organising today. It was good to see the Jeeps doing things that some can only dream doing. Only one of the GC's suffered the "sand issue", while all the others had no issues. Weather wise the day was perfect, and a really great group of forum members in attendance. I will post images once I get over drooling over them.

Don't forget to post the pictures up in the members ride section, just to make the Yanks jealous

You should also submit that photo for 'Jeeps of the month'
