A CCVC shiny 4x4 trip.

This was worth doing. lots of sand dunes. Need permits and access to the Foxton end though.

Looks like you had a good time.
Surprising how many times full noise is needed!

My Defender with standard muds would not get over that sand dune.
Tubes and lower pressure next time I think.

yeah, some near bald all terrains or muds on about 12-15 psi works a treat along that coast, wider the better 12.5" etc.
