Recently went out to the Oceano dunes with some friends. Looking for some advice regarding off-roading in the sand here are some of my questions I have:

  1. Recommended rigs and set up.
  2. Tire combinations and air pressures
  3. Towing in the sand
  4. Recovery options / tricks to get out of sand
  5. General actives at the dunes / off-road equipment at the dunes.
  6. Possible safety concerns

Thanks any info is appreciated!
