Sand Driving Theory 10th April, 2019
Muzz in teacher mode..scratching his head..?
Just making sure he’s giving the facts
Numbers were about 17 people who attended the 4wd theory night at the Manning Clubhouse.
We discussed 4wd gear, vehicle recovery points, snatch strap recovery techniques, safe procedures and practices.
Sand Practical Day: Saturday the 13th of April.
This was followed up by the 4wd sand practical day at Wilbinga Grove.
A revision first of snatch strap recovery theory. Followed by everyone taking turns to get bogged and be recovered.
Discussed and used MaxTrax before taking a break for lunch.
Afterwards we played nearby on more bare white sand hills.
The sand hills being pretty soft and boggy were perfect for tire pressure demonstrations.
By letting some more pressure out of our tires . no one had any problems getting to
the top of the hill.
Some of the more inexperienced were surprised to see the difference tire pressure made on the ease of driving up a sand hill.
The play on the sand hills also gave the chance to use the settings that are different from one make of car to another.
Very satisfying day for both trainers their “students”
