Dino does snow...

Had a Snow run with some friends from the North of Lebanon (honestly, best looking terrain in I’ve ever seen…) and we had a run from 1,400m altitude to 3,083, the highest peak in the Middle East (“Qornet El Sawda”, or “The Black Corner”)…we encountered pebble trail, rocks, mud, ravines, and finally snow…

The entrance to the trail was a very tough blockade that had me on 3 wheels, and we had to winch the Unimog back as well as get some GREAT driving from the G Wagon (Marc is one of the best drivers on LWB I’ve seen!)

Winching the Unimog back (tied my rear end to the G, and slapped a snatch block as the truck was dead and on the other side of the blockade

Along the trail got to a nice technical rock/mud section (I hate mud and rock together!)

Reaching snow at around 2,400m high…first, we deflated (went down to 2psi!)

Unimog didn’t deflate as tires are ancient and didn’t want to have issues (getting 44” STSs for the winter)

Leading the way at 2psi…was driving in 2nd with the underdrive, lockers and all on, tick-over…no issues at all…

Rear tire at 2psi with a small side-slope (I love beadlocks…now I know why they are going for 17” and 20” tires, no?)
