Samurai Beach Day out with SHRKB8 Our 4X4 friends Jim and Cherie
Wow Talk about a strange Day, Phone message at 10 30 in morning "what ya doing ?
Nothing Much ....
Do you want to go out
So off to the Beach ,Samurai was our destination , quickly pack car, pull in to Cole's for some lunch and off we went.We haven't taken our new girl the Ranger wild track named "Pink bits" out on the sand yet but we aired down and we were there in a bit.
We went with our good friend Cherie and Jim Dodd their cars name is SHRKB8. A morning of fun and chatting about some more upcoming adventures.
We have owned the Ranger for about 6 months now and are still finding our feet. It is a little longer than the Everest we owned,but most of the inside is the same. We have a Gvm upgrade done to it to pull our van comfortably,which has lifted it 2 inches, also there is a lot of other extras done to it will go into details on another post.
Today was about the sand, I have to say the car handled it well. Hubby drove out along the beach and I drove home.I slid a bit and sort of scratched the side a bit but no major damage just a lot of laughs and fun. Its the first of many trips to come in this beast of a car.We were keen to get a feel of capability as we have a trip to K'gari (Fraser Island ) booked and planed for this for September/October school holidays.We have done a few 4x4 trips in it now but this was her first Sand trip.
We enjoyed a walk along the beach, It was a lovely sunny day, I also managed to climb the rocks down the east end then brisk walk back to cars to start our trip home, I could have stayed there all afternoon, but someone made other arrangements for the rest of the day ....
If you get the chance go check it out lovely drive and nice little beach.
