daggo66 Sometimes they close off part of the beach for nesting birds. In the second picture you can see the rope and sign if you look carefully. I've always wondered how the birds know to stay on there own side of the rope.

daggo66 Keeps people out of Virginia. MD has 12 miles of beach you can drive on, VA has only a couple. You can only walk on the rest. One day I watched this little dot get larger and larger. Soon a guy walked up and said hello. He had just hiked something like 15 miles. Then he tunred around and went back.

there you go!

baytownbert 1. Air down to about 15 pounds
2. 4 high
3. AT tires or stockers are better than MT's.
4. Don't go alone.

Depends on what tires you're running and whether you can "Deflate" or not and how far you'll have to drive and do you have an aux cooler installed and do you have an air compressor and do you have a shovel and --see it ain't simple-

Here's my jeep climbing a sand hill, in 4hi,but I've got everything required and you should bein 4lo, if you haven't got an aux cooler !



Or get some of these-





Ain't jeepin fun-?

i have driven on the beach in west florida a couple of times with no trouble. 4H has been all i've needed, some really soft pits and stuff. if it's real sugar sand, you should air down your tires also.

happy reading!

Driving thru soft beach sand.

We've got some beach access parking areas that have loose soft beach sand that looks about a foot deep in some areas. I've seen lots of tourists park try to park there in the summer and get stuck. Whats the best way to drive in and through the sand. Should 4H or 4L be used or just cruise on through. I'm driving a stock 08 Rubicon.

Thanks,
Dave
