If you want a warm welcome, great facilities, and to feel like part of the family, then Judy and Bruce have the perfect place for you. They couldn't have made us feel more at home if they tried. Nothing was a problem for Judy Thanks for making our stay so great. We hope to see you again soon. It was lovely to meet Judy and her husband. We had a great time and the room was exactly what we needed for a short stay in Canberra.
We effectively had an entire "wing" of their lovely home and use of our own bathroom. A great breakfast was provided as well and we look forward to staying with them again next time we're back. Judy and Bruce were very welcoming and friendly hosts. They went above and beyond in making us comfortable; offering us the use of their pool and even a glass of wine to help us relax! We were allowed the use of their washing machine, and were allowed to make our own 'brekky' from a wide selection of foods, including home-made jam.
Next time we pass through Canberra, we will be sure to look them up to see if we can book with them again. We arrived to be warmly greeted by Judy and Bruce and the fur babies. The aromas of freshly cooking strawberry jam were also very inviting. We were given great advice for close by eating areas and great advice on places to see.
Warm and comfortable bed, great bathroom and all facilities outstanding. Breakfast with fresh fruit and muesli prepared by Bruce another great touch. Wonderful hosts and for our first 'real' Airbnb encounter we would strongly recommend such a close to the city experience.
Beautiful and clean house in a lovely quiet neighbourhood close to the city centre. We felt very safe and welcome staying with Judy and Bruce. They were excellent, friendly, reliable hosts and provided everything we could need, including an awesome full spread of breakfast foods including bacon, free range eggs, avocado, beeries, yoghurt and more. Would recommend this listing to anyone visiting Canberra! I had the loveliest stay at Judy and Bruce's house.
The room is comfortable, tidy and has everything you could need - including a kettle and coffee and tea in the room, which was a really nice touch. Judy and Bruce are very welcoming, and made me feel Email hidden by Airbnb munication was fantastic and when I ended up arriving later than expected, they were understanding and very accommodating.
The location is a pleasant short walk to Manuka with all the shops and restaurants, and public transport is not far. I would love to stay at Judy and Bruce's again and highly recommend this lovely room. Rob and I enjoyed staying at this spacious, private downstairs apartment with lovely views of the garden and undercover swimming pool. It is situated in a lovely quiet suburb with nearby park and shops and we had no trouble getting to the main roads, and around the city from here. We enjoyed our chats with our hostess Jan who provided a lot of information about interesting exhibitions, places to visit and places to eat.
Alas, we had no time for visiting those places but will definitely return for a much longer stay, hopefully this year. Jan's place is exactly what I wanted quiet,clean and cozy. She made me and my family feel really comfortable and we felt as we were at home. As I am new to Canberra I couldn't ask for more than this. Thank you Jan for being an excellent host. This place is in a quiet location with an easy walk to shops. The host is very welcoming and accommodating.
We loved staying at Jan's home. We spent the long weekend at the Beyond Festival where it was cold and muddy for most of the time so it was such a pleasure to come home to such a lovely, cosy, warm space. We definately want to come back in the summer time and use that gorgeous looking pool I would recommend this property to anyone. Very homey especially the floor heating which was an added bonus since it was pretty chilly in Canberra.
Leanne's place is very clean and comfy. We had a lovely stay. It's a beautiful home and Leanne was extremely helpful and accommodating. We would recommend a stay here. Everything was provided for, from hairdryer and iron to homemade muesli and coffee.
I would definitely return again. Leanne, Andrew and the boys make you feel perfectly welcome in their home on the hill. It's been a wonderful few days nice people, great location and would be back in a flash! We loved our stay here. We loved meeting their chickens too. Comfy room and beds 1 double, 1 pull out. Peaceful views and an easy min drive to city centre.
Adults could probably cycle it as many cycle lanes and paths around. Very comfortable place and was close to my work place. Host was very kind , friendly and approachable, would define recommend to stay at Leanne's place. Very friendly hosts, beautiful room, privacy, excellent location if desiring access to Stromlo Forest. I spent three nights at Leanne's house, and intend to use it again another three nights. Think it sums up everything I have to say about the place.
Located just a few kilometres from the city centre, but surrounded by nature, birds, and gorgeous views. Leanne and her family are definitely super hosts - very warm, welcoming, generous and kind. I wish I could have stayed longer. The room is very comfortable and warm even in cold days I was there.
Thank you Leanne and all the family! Leanne's place was perfect for me as I attended a function at the nearby Irish Club. It is very near the Weston shops which has several good restaurants. Also close to the Cotter rd which will take you into the city or out to the Cotter river. The house backs onto a reserve so it is very quiet. The house is passive solar and strawbale so very comfortable temperature wise with a peaceful ambience. Your room will be a little away from the main family area so nice and private.
Lovely bathroom and well equipped kitchenette. Four poster bed was very comfortable. A very nice place as described by others. The biggest thing is Mark really tried whatever he could to make the stay a better experience. However, there is a minor problem which is really beyond the control of the host: Once during my stay there is loud music from a neighbour; and then when the ac is on you will know it.
Great, modern, brand new apartment with all the modern conveniences needed heating etc. Mark also kindly provided access to his kitchen and breakfast food as well as clean towels. It was the perfect air BnB accommodation. Mark waited for my arrival and passed the house key to me on the day that I arrived.
He explained to me where to park my car and showed the facilities in the house and within the building. Positive experience for me! The place was very clean and spacious and very close to central Canberra. Mark was very considerate to keep my luggage for extra time even after check-out. He is very friendly and provided required privacy. Cindy and her family are really friendly and warm.
The place was very clean and they provided us with a really nice breakfast. We felt welcome staying at their place. We had a restful stay at Clare's house after a day visiting Canberra. The house is clean and well equiped. The room is confortable and very charming. The neighbourhood is quiet and we've even had a parking bay off the street. Clare is very welcoming and loves chatting with her guests. Everything is done for you to feel like home.
This was my first Airbnb and was avery pleasant experience,even though Clare was away. The house was very clean without feeling sterile. The place was very quiet - but had a morning carolling from magpies.

Timber train in Manjimup Pemberton area in the s The network of railway lines in Western Australia associated with the timber and firewood industries is as old as the mainline railway system of the former Western Australian Government Railways system.
Timber railways There is a range of terminology related to the timber railways - they have been known as logging railways, timber trams, and other names as well. The dominant feature is the mobility or easiness of moving the lines from one area of forest to another - and in the early years the relatively primitive state of the lines.
The dominant feature is the narrow gauge, and lightness of the locomotives, relative to permanent railways. Timber industry The timber industry relied mostly upon the Jarrah forests of the Darling Armillaria luteobubalina, commonly known as the Australian honey fungus, is a species of mushroom in the family Physalacriaceae. Widely distributed in southern Australia, the fungus is responsible for a disease known as Armillaria root rot, a primary cause of Eucalyptus tree death and forest dieback.
It is the most pathogenic and widespread of the six Armillaria species found in Australia. The fungus has also been collected in Argentina and Chile. The fruit bodies, which appear at the base of infected trees and other woody plants in autumn March—April , are edible, but require cooking to remove the bitter taste. The fungus is dispersed through spores produced on gills on the underside of the caps, and also by growing vegetatively through the root systems of host trees.
The ability of the fungus to spread vegetatively is facilitated by an aerating system History and industry Yallingup is named after an Australian Aboriginal word that means "Place of Love".

Augusta was a summer holiday town for many during most of the twentieth century, but late in the s many people chose to retire to the region for its cooler weather. As a consequence of this and rising land values in the Augusta-Margaret River area, the region has experienced significant social change.
It is the state's third-largest city, with a population just behind that of Mandurah. Located at the south of the Leschenault Estuary, Bunbury was established in on the orders of Governor James Stirling, and named in honour of its founder, Lieutenant at the time Henry Bunbury. A port was constructed on the existing natural harbour soon after, and eventually became the main port for the wider South West region.
Further economic growth was fuelled by completion of the South Western Railway in , which linked Bunbury with Perth.

Member feedback about Picardy wine: The recovery vehicle can stay high on the beach without risking itself to the surf, and keep churning away slowly pulling out the bogged car. If both vehicles are running very low tyre pressures, it should work. You may need to reduce to around 6 psi. This method is also a less risky in terms of breaking the recovery gear. The tide is rising. There are no other vehicles to help. You have no winch or recovery tracks or other recovery equipment.
If you want to save your vehicle you need to act quickly. Once the car is sucked into the sand by the water there is no way to recover. Act before that happens. Do not waste time deciding what to take out. Small or large, heavy or light, take it out. Lots of small things accumulate to a significant weight — it all makes a difference. If the rear seats in the car are easy to remove, take them out too.
Yes you are stupid for putting the vehicle in this position, but for now everyone must work together and remain focused on the recovery. You are risking tyre damage and busting a tyre bead.
The return for your risk is the chance to save your 4WD. It is extremely difficult to drive up a boggy sloping beach in reverse.
The front end of the car is almost impossible to control. It swings around like a pendulum. It will all get ruined, but may save your car. Hard things like camping tables and chairs may be too risky for your tyres and for people nearby. Stroke the dashboard gently. You want maximum effort from the start. You may get traction for only a brief moment. If in an auto transmission, lock it in 1st. Regulate throttle to maintain engine rpm just below redline. Engine rpm can drop quickly if you hit a patch of traction.
Be ready for it so you maintain rpm and maximize speed gained. Churn through the sand and power up the beach. If you feel the car has pulled out and is easily floating on top, quickly change to second gear to get more speed to help travel up the sloping beach away from the water. If your car is churning through deep sand and making slow progress, continue to maintain rpm and do not change gear.
Dig out around your chassis and tyres again and attempt to take off in the same manner, but this time turn your front wheels down hill towards the water. Similar to a stalling plane, you are trying to point the nose down, gain some speed, then pull up to avoid the imminent catastrophe. This move is risky — failure will bring you further into the water. Maintain rpm, maximize speed and select gears according to the point above. Use every bit of speed you have. Start thinking of a good story to explain to your insurance company.

I have a few questions for you: I also am considering removing the spare tire from the back and placing it on a rack on top. What do you think of them compared to the Mantek ones you showed in your post? I looked into the hi-lift jack as a manual winch Sorry for all the questions but I feel I can trust your recommendations based on your post and how you approached it.
Hey Omar thanks for checking out my article and your commendation. Looks like good fun. Answers to your questions: The x-tracks are longer than maxtrax so that is good.
Rigid style recovery tracks work more reliably. Even if they slip, the slipping causes them to get shoved into the sand deeper until eventually the slipping stops and the vehicle can drive out. The flexible ones can just continue to bunch up and not recover the car. But the flexible ones might be more convenient to store, as they roll up.
You can get away with no jack if you have a shovel and recovery tracks. But shoveling out the sand from beneath a car is harder work than jacking it up. Airbag jack is easier to deploy on soft, uneven surfaces. For example if your vehicle is stuck sideways on a dune and close to rolling onto its side, driving out using recovery tracks would be too dangerous as it may trigger a roll over.
You could use a winch to pull the car at an angle to reduce the rollover risk. Another case is if you are stuck on a boggy, steep sloping beach. In this case a winch is better to pull you straight up the beach away from the water. So a winch is good to protect yourself against these circumstances. On the other hand you may never encounter such situations and never use the winch. So you need to weigh up the benefit vs the extra weight, cost and space of carrying a winch that you may never use.
People with winches end up unnecessarily using them. They could have got out with reduced tyre pressure, some shovel work and recovery tracks. It is a rare situation when a winch is really needed. Thank you so much for your response! Am considering the air bag or the hi-lift jack since it can double as a manual winch.
I hate to ask one more question but what say I am on my own and have the hi-lift jack — would burying the spare work better than those winch anchors they sell that are supposed to dig into the sand?
Thanks again for all your help and have actually been looking into possibly acquiring a Suzuki Samurai although they are incredibly hard to come by and cant be imported as the import laws here are very strict.
Keep up the great work on the site. Burying the spare tyre is hard work. Then extracting the tyre again is more hard work. I imagine a proper anchor would be much quicker and easier to deploy. But they are bulky and heavy. Might happen once every few years. Mate your post is like an encyclopedia. Shows heaps of knowledge and a good heart to share it. Here my point is, dig a little to place the wheels on the ground. Apply the accelerator AND the brake moderately at the same time.
This will act like a limited slip differential. I am using 3 difflocks now rear, middle, front , so no need for this trick for me. Before I installed the front difflock, sometimes I needed to do the trick, when the traction became very little after lifting a front wheel, when crossing a dune.
Hey Nev thanks for your comment. Not even a lurch forward or any sign of transferring torque to the wheels with traction. It makes sense in theory too for traditional open diffs. The brakes apply force to each side evenly. Any torque contribution from the brakes on the spinning side is exactly offset by extra resistance from the brake on the other side.
So although the axle of the wheel with traction is experiencing torque the brake perfectly offsets that torque so there is no net torque to the wheel. Result is nothing happens when you apply the brakes. If you were able to apply the brakes on one side only then that would work but since both sides have the same amount of braking force there is no net gain. Open diffs always have the same torque on both sides, there can never be a difference in torque.
This is what I mean by not being able to multiply torque. Some limited slip diffs multiply torque. For example if you have zero torque on one side then the other side also experiences zero torque since anything multiplied by zero is zero. But if one side has at least a small amount of torque then the other side experiences that torque multiplied to deliver even more torque. So if you apply the brakes, the side that was spinning freely now experiences some torque and this transfers to the other side with even more torque — enough to offset the brakes plus some extra to allow you to drive out.
But this is just based on my experience and understanding of how it works. Hey after reading this, I have decided to go on dune bashing the coming weekend. I have a question, please do help me out. Totally new to this.. How many people should I be maintaining in my Cruiser…? WOuld it be a problem if there are 5 people and all r just weighing average..
Hey sanjay 5 people in your cruiser is fine. More people to help when you get stuck! I was chastened by this experience. Hi Nostromo haha yeah the Suburban is too big to bury, nice work saving your truck. Twice as many cylinders as what you need. Nice International Dateline response from you, Joe. So, for all of my professed experience in sand I have been fortunate to have gotten stuck but once.
Curiously, my first time out was in a standard-shift 6 cylinder full-sized GMC pickup. Again, this was my very first shot at driving on sand in or Subsequently, and as I gained some experience, I was able to gauge what level of air pressure was needed for the conditions, the firmness of the sand.

There are days, mostly during the middle of the week during summer here, June, July and August, when one can feel completely alone. During spring and fall the fishing action is seasonally brisk and one might see a few other fisherman going through their paces running up and down the beach in their trucks looking for the fringes of a good riptide.
Yes, the film, On The Beach, is an oldie. Australia figures prominently in the story. Best wishes to you. Surf City, sounds nice. New Jersey, sounds cold. But then the rest of our 30,km of coastline is very isolated with bugger all people anywhere.
Quite a contrast there, Joe. It is still amazing to me that I can feel isolated with all of the people just, literally, over-the-horizon, behind me. New Jersey gets its share of cold weather. Even in the summer some cloudy days with an onshore breeze can send vacationers along the shore scurrying indoors. Driving in wintertime, when we get four or more inches of snow, is when everybody with 4WD decides that is the moment that they need to go to the store to get milk or head over to the coffeehouse to cluck over the weather.
Hey Ern no probs. Weight per sq cm of contact patch is dictated by tyre pressure. If you have a heavy car and a light car at the same tyre pressure and therefore same weight per unit area of contact patch the light car is still better. Check out here for more info.
Thanks so much for all of the great advice: Great writeup in a common-sense style. Would have been handy to read before my first powder dry sandy track.
Made every mistake in the book but thanks to beginners luck made it out and back. Looking forward to a rematch better armed. Did notice rear diff lock helped a little but way too much steering input almost bogged me.
Just have to learn that the vehicle will follow the rusts. Will try your sharp yank and then straight. Actually surprisingly easy to get a lock of turn on and not know it for this newbie. Hey mate thanks for the feedback hope the article was useful and your next mission goes well. I have seen people driving with their steering nearly full lock churning through a rut. Never been on sand but about to do so, hence researching. These are low profile on a Mercedes ML Hey Ben, tyre profile increases the risk of pinching the tyre between rim and ground, other than that you just decrease tyre pressure until you are floating on top which depends on vehicle weight and depth of sand.
Your vehicle may not be suitable for deep soft sand if the ground clearance is poor, it lacks a low range gearbox and has tyre profiles so low that tyre damage risk is too high. If the sand aint too soft then drop to whatever keeps you on top, maybe 25 psi or something, and you should be ok. The jeep has standard tyres. Do I still need to deflate my tyres? Yes you need to deflate your tyres for sand. Thanks for the tip. Had many different people say otherwise. Some say deflate and others say not to.
Select terrain probably changes how the traction control reacts. Hard tyres will have you immediately bogged in soft sand. Software in the traction control system cannot circumvent this. Cheers mate, a really good read. I look forward to doing a lot more beach driving now.
Feeling a bit more confident after reading your article. Recently purchased some tyre deflators and set them to 15psi. South west wa beaches , here I come. Been only couple times driving in the beach, this article surely give much more info to improve my confidence for future trip. The first is the famous 1st Low Extremely Gentle Start.
Low revs are involved. Once rolling on top of the sand, more throttle can be used, and, as speed increases, gear changes tend to be the usual high-revving affairs. Planks and lumps of wood are wonderful things. Permanently in my car, I have a big lump for the base of the jack, and four metre-long planks sideways, flat in the back of the vehicle. And 3 other bits. The plan is that I jack it up, fill in the wheel holes and — if necessary — put the planks on top, under the wheels. In soft sand with an incoming tide, these could hopefully guarantee a speed of 1m per few minutes, which is faster than my tides.
This is very reassuring. In fact I have never used them on beaches, but they have got me unstuck quite quickly in my local hills on several occasions. Hey PB thanks for the tips dude. Planks of wood are a nice tight ass solution for recovery tracks, nice work. An excellent and very comprehensive article, however, I beg to differ regarding turning around on a beach. If you turn up the beach one loses momentum very quickly, due to turning and driving up hill at the same time.
Plant the boot until you are going straight and slowly work your way up the beach to the safety of the dry sand. The only advantage in turning up slope is the vehicle is further from the water when it bogs down and if the sand is really soft, it probably will. I would only turn up slope if the beach was too narrow to U turn and then use my Maxtrax I have 4 to assist in a multi point turn, or winch as a last resort.
On the subject of winching in sand, I always bury my spare wheel vertically, parallel to the front of the vehicle with a wheel brace behind the wheel centre to attach the winch cable or the recovery strap. This creates a greater surface area.
Something else worth mentioning is if one is stuck in wet sand, turn the engine off until you are ready to attempt the extraction, as the vibration of the engine will act like a concrete vibrator causing the vehicle to sink even deeper.
Finally some useful information on the internet…I have experienced almost all of the situations you have described mostly in North Carolina and Oregon. But I still learned something and the refresher was great. Thanks for taking the time to put this info together. Me and my wife traveled down the Oregon coast a couple of years ago, was awesome, we had a ball. Was one of our favourite bits of our trip around USA. That was SO unbelievably useful! I am currently in the hunt for a 4b or ute to do exactly this!
And the article has given me so much useful content to absorb and digest! Or maybe it will. Such a great read! Hey Rhyno glad the article was useful. Yeah a Sierra is an awesome vehicle to cut your teeth on. Be careful when you upgrade, coz the ease of which the sierra handles sand can lead you to unknowingly put a big beast into risky situations. Good Article, what about mentioning furiously turning the wheel side to side when self recovering?
Also rocking back and forth to flatten the sand and make a bit of a firm ramp to drive out on. About a year ago, against my better judgement, myself and a mate rocked up at a narrow beach in SA ready for a bit of camping and fishing. When we arrived the tide was pretty high, but we decided to do a bit of reconnaissance and suss it out anyway. We got down ok but decided to turn back as the tide was coming up. Coming back we kind of slipped down towards the water it was a really steep beach and got hopelessly bogged.
Meanwhile the weather turned to complete shit, wind, heavy raain, the tide came right in, waves hitting the drivers side, and the water was eroding the tires on the drives side, causing to car to be on about a 30 degree angle. We were both shitting ourselves, emptied the car, hooked the winch up to a buried tyre up higher on the beach to prevent rolling, and dug like mad men for about an hour. We seriously thought wed loose tee troopy, but we managed to level the car out, and I drove out of it like a mad man!
I might add, the beach was about 20m wide at that stage with a sheer cliff backing straight onto the beach, nowhere to go! Needless to say I learnt a valuable lesson! Wow I just finished reading your article and I have to say awsome tips. I wanted trd but the wife wanted a sunroof. So anyways we go to North Carolina every summer. I have always wanted to drive on the beach. Awesome tips mate, just finished reading all the sand driving tips and the comments by the off-road Gurus.
Just got back last night after spending a good 2 hours of recovering my Pajero 3. Still have to find the perfect technique to get out from this. I use Low Range with locking center diff most of the time.
I reckon you recommend unlocking the diff-lock in this situation? Hey Sarmad on uneven terrain diff lockers are king! Turn all your diff lockers and traction aids on when confronting hump-dee-doos. A rear diff locker, combined with your center diff locker, will make hump-dee-doos a piece of cake. Before you approach a hump-dee-doo you can shovel sand into the deepest parts to make it more even.
If you do get stuck and the sand is soft and easy to dig then an option is to dig out sand from under the tyre that has the most weight on it. This transfers weight onto to the wheel that is spinning with no traction. We are planning a trip to Fraser Island soon in our new Pajero Sport and there is so much information to digest. This one article answered us so many questions! Needless to say exit from the beach is an uphill into some really soft sand I I did not think I was going to get out of there.
Shocked to say the least! After airing down and finding some rocks to start off on I made it off without needed a tow. Checking later I had only dropped the air from 45 to 30 psi — and I thought it was way lower! Of course my cheap stick type gauge was not working today either… Your article is well written and spot on. Thanks for taking the time to create it! My girlfriend wanted to go to a beach that was about a mile from the main highway.
The dirt road that went to the beach was covered in deep sand in many places.. We started down the road at the urging of my girlfriend and against my better judgement and the sand was getting deeper and I was concerned about getting stuck it was outside. We started down a hill and it looked like really deep sand at the bottom, I decided to stop back out. Well, not surprisingly, the rear wheels dug in and we were stuck. I had no shovel or any recovery equipment of any sort. I removed as much sand as I could by hand from around the tires and from under the chassis.
Then let most of the air out of the rear tires and the big heavy Merc pull right out of the sand and I was able to drive it back to the main highway. I only had manual pump with me so had to re-inflate the tires by hand in heat. I made a stupid mistake but letting the air out of the tires worked fantastically. Great article Joe and one I have read attempting to seek a solution to my bogging issue. I also have a Mitsubishi MT Tractor that constantly gets bogged and this is extremely frustrating.
I have lowered the air pressure in the large rear tyres to 18psi and I still get bogged. Last time I had to pull the tractor out with the Pajero this is just so wrong. I am wondering if the big chunky large tyres on the tractor are what is causing the issue, but reading this blog it does not seem so.
However, I do not have a solution and I am writing on here in the hope of finding one if you can help or anyone has had a similar experience. How flat do your tyres look at 18? If plenty of clearance in the profile then keep airing down. Hi Joe, thanks for your comments. At 18psi they still look like they were fully inflated.
So I will deflate them some more and see what happens. When you look at the tread pattern behind the tractor when driving, the chunky tread just seems to break up the surface and sink in, and then dig it out on its way forward. So despite what one would think, I am beginning to believe that the chunky tread pattern is just not good for sand.
I will reduce more and see what happens. A very good article and probably the best I have read to date. However, most of the information and pictures relate to hard typical in Australia and not super soft sand typical in deserts.
In soft sand your feet sink inches just by getting out of your vehicle. I train people to 4WD in Saud Arabia where we have foot high slip-faces great fun to drive down. If I was explaining to people how to prepare for sand driving I would talk about vehicles first and my preference would be 1.
There are two major things I would disagree with when in soft sand. Any vehicle that uses low gear gets stuck instantly. It is just not possible to get across a soft sand bowl in low gear. As you indicate, momentum is key and you will not get sufficient momentum in low gear. Also you will need more gear changes, and each gear change is very expensive on momentum.
Second you indicate that the tyre choice is not important. I would strongly disagree with that. A vehicle with a profile sand tyre will far exceed a vehicle with a 75 profile mud tyre. It is chalk and cheese. Also, a sand tread allows vehicles to spin their wheels continuously allowing a vehicle to move forward extremely slowly without sinking, while doing the same with an all-terrain tyre will cause you to dig you self into a hole.
Mud tyres instantly dig the vehicle into a hole. Regarding tyre pressure, I recommend my people to start with higher pressure so that they can feel the sand through the steering wheel and travel in greater safety. Letting the pressure down low too early certainly prevents you getting stuck, but also does not allow you to feel the sand to know that you are in the type of sand that will lead you to getting stuck quickly.
By the way, most manufactures have minimum recommended deflation pressures related to rim width. As I said, this is the best article I have read, but if you plan to write a book you have missed a lot of important sand driving information, or some of the key points are lost in the verbiage. I really want to thank you for writing this and sharing with us. Then I hosed anything I could, any nook and cranny and yep more sand came out.
Need to know a fresh creek we can drive through after leaving Fraser Island heading back Brisbane way. And need to know local freshwater creeks we can drive through! I look forward to reading your whole page!
