3rd An. Icacos Run - Everyday is your day Biggy..

Postby wagon r » April 19th, 2010, 4:09 pm

.....there isn't much I have to say about this run that hasn't been said already. Check the prev. two to get an idea of fun we had in the past.

Meeting Point will be KFC Car Park in Gulf View for 7:30am....Dpearture time is 8:00am sharp....you will be playin ketch up after that.

:!: :!: THERE ARE NO STOPS ON THE WAY DOWN :!: :!:

(except for a bathroom for the ladies)

The plan is to hit the sand and enjoy it before high tide comes in, and it comes in very fast.

Lunch will be had @ Columbus Bay where we drive, park up, eat and relax. Sea is there for those who want it.

btw....this will be the last run for Hilux Dude...a foundation member, before he leaves TnT so feel free to harass him one last time... :lol: :lol:

The usual...snacks, drinks (non-alcho), recovery stuff.


as you were.... 8-)

tide times .....freak will drop them but high tide starts coming in around 11:45 - 12:00 as we have experienced in the past.

...prepare to be amazed at low tide....sand to get yuh chupid....it make the mazan beach look like a play park...

i will stress...

NO SPEEDING ON THE BEACH...NONE...SPEED LIMIT SHOULD BE NOTHING HIGHER THAN 60KPH.

the reason for this....@ low tide...the water creates water tracks that you don't see until you are right on them, which creates 2 problems...

1. Children like to play in them and at speed you won't see them before it's too late.

2. Hitting one at speed will cause you to lose control and even though it's sand, you can damage your van, crash your van and injure yourself. trust me....i know.

with that said....

there are parts of the beach that are remote so the fellas who like to show-orf will have some space but please look out for the locals.

also, this is a drop point for alot of things in this country...you will be looked at and you don't know....so please use yuh common sense.

it's been a year since we have been there, so i can't tell you what the sand maybe like with erosion but it should be great...

Isn't that cutting it kinda close? It's usually a 1 1/2hr drive from Sando to the beach depending on traffic / road conditions etc. and if you factor the typical Trini timing, I can see you guys should reach the beach by a realistic 10am.

That only leaves you with a maximum safe beach drive time of 45mins before you have to turn around and head back out.. That not much time for any decent exploration / photo opportunities / enjoying the scenery / photo opportunities etc.. (yes, i said it twice.. :lol: )

I'm just suggesting..

3stagevtec, max tide is usually around 2pm. that will give us plenty of time to run up and down the beach before we really have to leave.

correct me if i wrong bleedingfreak

We are veterans of when it comes to tide management. It wont take a genius to figure out the tide is coming in... And, when WE roll, you better roll out too...

hahaha....

Going down next week to do preliminary assessment and maybe another one the week before the trip...

Actually, I wanted to go further up the beach that day! I remember wagonrunner had posted a very interesting section of the beach in the last thread and I was hoping we would have made it to that area..

...that my friend....is the mouth of a river.....meaning more swamp sand than what sweeky stuck in....and worse than what i got into in moruga...

...also...i'm almost certain we were close to that.....given that we were criving along side mangrove for a little while before the sweeky incident.

...but we'll see how it goes....i'll be in the back... :lol: :lol:

....one other thing....if you look at the landscape closely....you would notice to get there....we have to cross 3 or more swampy areas, including the area sweeks got hung up.......not sayin we cyar try...

...but i eh want to leave any vans overnight....

if we leave on time, we should get there in enough time to go as far as tide will permit us...

Yunno, just after that swampy area is alot of straight driving on what appears to be smooth beach sand shoreline.. If the conditions are favorable enough and we can make it though that difficult area, we should be able to make it to Chatham Road to get back out.. I measured 4.7miles to Chatham Road from the swampy area..

I'm not suggesting that we try to make it to Chatham road, but if we do get there and it's safe enough to proceed further, we would have a way out.. It's just something to keep in mind..

Now thinking about it, I remember the Moruga vids that was posted.. If that area is anything like Moruga Swamp mud, not me and that!!

Dark Sand = Sticksville

...stay clear of the dark sand (it's usually where the ground has a higher saturation of water with loose soil) and you should be okay.

Maybe we should consider leaving a little earlier. Even an additional half hour will help if somebody gets in trouble.

speedaholic, i thought i started the list earlier but no body took it on. hey Fahim tell me when you leaving in the morning to meet with them. i will prefer the company to make the drive to meet up in south.

and anyone else from North let us organise when and where to meet to go down together.
