    One of the lines inspector Harry Callahan says, better known as "Dirty Harry", comes to mind: "Man should know his limitations".

    Lol!

    I wonder if he tried letting air out of the tyres before digging it in up to the hubs?

    At least this fella was above the high tide mark. This is Birdlings Flat which is a beach I want my 'next' Freelander to be able to navigate....

    If it were a tratter it would not have floated due to the number of rust holes.

    I was thinking that if they'd put a rope on it, they could have pulled it up by hand with the tide.

    it is nice to be wrong sometimes and yes there were that many people around it they should have just pushed it out. And remember it is always better to walk the course first then if you sink up to your neck then you know your car will not get out no matter what it is.
