I want'ed to go to sore Thumb but I couldn't find the entrance
HAHA. I ended up going to Democrat point.
Is sore Thumb harder sand?
I'm deff airing down even more next time. When going in the entrance a lifted jeep got stuck and I thought to my self this isn't a good idea. But like most things I took the risk and I had a lot of fun.
Itís the same terrain on the other side of the inlet at Sore Thumb. If you go down to 20psi, youíre plenty good. And, if you do happen to get stuck, you have some room to come down a bit more in pressure to help get yourself out. If you do happen to get stuck, try to back out of it. Reversing out works quite well. Donít sweat the guys in the big jeeps getting hemmed up. Most of those meatheads donít even air down.
Iíve done well over 500 miles on the outer beaches of LI over the past few years in my Touareg. Most of it solo. If you conservative you should have no troubles heading out alone. Not to mention, most of the outer beaches that lie furthest west tend to have people coming, and going fairly often. So, there is usually someone around to lend a friendly, helping hand. But, there are a few areas I would steer clear of if youíre solo.
The rocks at Moriches Inlet(Smith Point).
Hither Hills in Montauk. When the tide is in the beach gets very narrow, and the access road has quite a steep drop in. So as youíre heading east/west to cut 90 degrees to head north up the steep incline up to the access road seemed to be a bit of a challenge for the Touareg. Also take into consideration that I am running a VR6.
Theodore Roosevelt Park(Gin Beach/Shagawong) in Montauk. As you head east down the beach there is a small point, and the beach starts to head south. That point is very rocky, and gets very tough to pass when the tide is in.
And, just north west of the Montauk Light House, near Money Pond, there are some trails, and some beach to ride. Lots of rocks, and the sand that is up on that side of the light house is like silt. Super SUPER soft.
Also, if youíre interested, there is a VW club on the island. You can look them up at www.livc.net
