Well, the wife (and Poodle) and I are off to OBX NC tomorrow with the Baja in tow. Cool Hopefully we will have some pic's of beach adventures to share with you guys as this will be the first official run/test of the Baja since I finished it. I have run the Baja around town a few times but lets face it, that's a small test. So the 300+ mile ride (towed) and running around on the beach outta be a pretty good test. Any-hoo, hopefully I'll have a good report for you guys.
Wish us luck...... Laughing

You have it az350x. OBX is outer banks North Carolina. It is all beach along the Inner Continental Waterway of the Atlantic Ocean.

Yes, sorry. It's the Outer Banks of NC. The wife and I have come here for 9 years. First time I drove my Jeep Cherokee and had a ball driving on the beach. Since then we've drivien the Acura MDX down but never took that out on the beach until last Sept but that's another story.
So OBX and you guys of course have been my inspiration to get my butt in gear and finish the Baja.

BTW, she towed just fine. Although I'm now considering a car dolly to help smoothe out the ride.
In a day or two we'll hit the beach and see how she performs there.

Later...

Rolling Eyes Well crap! I took the Baja on an errand and decided to try a short blast through the sand ( maybe 6-8 inches deep) then got stuck first ten feet in. I knew right away that the clutch/pressure plate combo I got SUCKS! Could barely get the rear tires to spin. Lesson learned on buying cheapo stuff. So I guess I'll just cruise around the small towns and work any other bugs (no pun) out.

**UPDATE**
Well the wife and I decided on another trip down to OBX for a long weekend.
Drug the Baja behind for another try. We hit the beach today even tho the weather is not ideal (cold (50's) and cloudy) but nonetheless the Baja did quite well in the sand. Sure got a few looks from the 4x4 guys out there.
Dropped the tires down to about 12 psi and it appeared they could go more but I left them there to see what happens. Seemed to work fine.
I took a couple pic's but I forgot the sim card reader for the camera so I'll have to post them later.
I have to say I'm pretty stoked. Cool My last attempt here was not so good. I will chock that trip up as a good learning experience.
