corolla

corolla was nice today.

no traffic on the way down. perfect weather.

looks like the wave action they had this week carved out little "sand cliffs" 12-18" tall near the high tide level

played with them for about 5 hours.

Corolla was cold and windy today.
Took the kids down for some wheeling on the beach, stayed in the ZJ mostly.

I went out there this past Saturday. Windy and a tad chilly, but minimal traffic, and lots of standing water. Encountered a few places that I wasn't brave enough to try crossing on a stock suspension.

I was the same way, bone stock and the only jeep on the beach, didn't want to risk it with the kids with me.

I was soooo nervous my first time on the beach because I thought for sure I'd get buried with no one around. (It was January.) Lowered the tire pressure and had no issues whatsoever. Some of the local rental places have "educational videos" about driving on the sand.

I was the same way. Ended up I went with a buddy in his lifted Taco with 32-33's and when we got to where the road ends and the beach starts, he just powers right on down without stopping so switch to 4wd or air down. So I follow. 35psi and 2wd got me from corolla all the way down to Corova.

Turns out he aired down to 19 before we left and has shift on the fly... lol.
It wasn't till we started to try and go over the dune that I got stuck. I backed down, aired down, put it in 4-low, and climbed over.

It had been raining all day the previous day and was still raining when we left, so there were some really deep puddles. I had one OH **** moment where my hood dipped under for a second, but otherwise we just had fun exploring and looking at horses.

The thing to be careful about back there is that a lot of people use those roads as primary transportation.
You have to be respectful of the road and beach and not tear it up.

There are designated areas where you are supposed to drive over the dune. How else do you get from the front (ocean side) to the back (neighborhood side).

Driving over random areas is bad but there are designated entrances with signs and fences designed for this purpose.
