I have a stick also and use 4hi, first is fine but I have to wind it up because second will bog down if I don't. Last year it wasn't so bad but because it's so hot and dry this year the sand this year is like powder and everyone sinks leaving deep ruts.

When driving in sand dunes. Always drive straight up or straight down the dunes.

NC is starting to look like a sweet place to go on vacation. Nice beach

The sand in NC is about the closest place for us in Virginia to go 4wheeling. Plus, there is an entire neighborhood on the beach at Corolla, NC, and the only way to get to it is by 4wheeling over the beach, over the dunes and through miles of sandy, winding off road roads. The locals have made some baja trails back in the neighborhoods (btw I use that term loosely, there are not that many houses except very close to the beach) and they are a blast!

Plus, there are wild horses that live on the beaches, so it's nice if you like wildlife as well.
