actually, i would imagine low tread tires work better on sand than deep tread, as it would help to keep the tires on top of the sand instead of digging into them.

I actually think I'm about 80% in.

-Any good (affordable) recommendations on the jack and support? I'm presuming the factory jack doesn't count?

-I need to dig up specs on the TH tow strap. Does anyone know if this meets the min rating or if they'll look that in-detail during inspection? If not, any attendees have a spare to borrow that meets the requirement?

-The factory jack is sufficient, assuming it is accompanied by a board that meets specs as well (a standard 2x4 will suffice).
-I believe the TH tow strap is more than capable of handling the beach, but someone will need to pull the exact specs to be sure.

i can't find the specs on the tow strap anywhere, without going out to my car and looking at strap itself. @Len1304?

My wife and I are in!

Regarding the shovel, it needs to be square? A standard (pointed) shovel won't qualify?

really any shovel will do, it needs to be able to dig your car out if you bottom the frame out in the sand. this is the one that i have:

I'm still tentative. It really depends on how events go down Saturday if I will be able to wake up early enough to get down there by 9am.
