Hey Rodrigo ...... Experience and patience and be willing to say no, not that way, pays in the long run.

Don't give up yet mate.



I couldn't agree more. If there is one thing I've learnt from going offroad with more experienced X-trailers, it's been that planning, patience, guidance from others and not going "gung-ho" into a situation/location certainly pay dividends.

When you're not spending your whole day digging yourself out or waiting for some petrol-head to pull you out, driving on the sand can be very enjoyable.


Rodrigo, recently I was checking out youtube and found this little gem. Okay, so it's not an X-trail he's driving, but the techniques can be shared.

Hope to catch up with you somewhere on the beach emoticon

Thanks Loafer,

I had seen this video a few times already. As I said, I've been studying sand driving online for a while. Thanks anyway.

Yep, as Black Thunda says you went the wrong way. In saying that though depending on conditions Bribie can be very unforgiving no matter where you go. I've lived there for over 20 years and been all over it from top to bottom in various 4x4's and some spots really are not that good no matter what you drive. The most successful I have had on the Island was a Triton GLXR dual cab ute, no weight in the back to sink you down, I used to spend a considerable amount of time towing others out. Be carefull driving into large puddles on the inland tracks too because the Forestry dug holes in them at one stage to keep 4x4's out. Because of the high water table on the Island they filled up with water and looked like just a long puddle - until you dropped into them and the water came up over your bonnet that is! Whether they still do that I don't know, most of the centre tracks were blocked off last time I tried to go up and that was a fair while ago. The last time I went up oceanside at Woorim the exit was chopped up badly and guys were getting bogged and making it worse as well.
