Re: New Jeep to beach!

I've mentioned this before, so sorry but I had a '72 Blazer. 1st 4wd. Drove down from Pittsburgh. Stock snow tires. Full tire pressure. Went off road at north end of Oregon inlet bridge. The going was hard but it kept going. Then I decided to stop. When I tried to start it did not go forward but dug it 'till the axles were sitting on the sand and one front and both rear(stock Eaton posi) tires were turning freely. It was cool, got out and watched for awhile. Only had a 10 inch Bowie knife,which I lost, to dig with. An hour later a little flat fender Jeep with a ranger type pulled up and matter-of-factly told me to reduce my tire pressures to about 10 psi, then tie this big ass hemp rope around my front shackle, and to keep it moveing untill we hit the harder wet sand near the water. Well I under stood the situation, this ranger dude said nothing else, just untied the rope and got in his little flattie and drove off. I did thank him, realizing that he has done this operation many times before. The Outer Banks are just fine. We found one beach that was just shaped just right for body surfing. The wave would put me, a big guy, about 30 feet up the beach. Have fun.

Huh?
