I have been to Badain Jaran once before, just for a simple test, and then I went to Weng Niut, the first time to try, and the second time to complete the crossing. Then the grass grew in my heart, and I decided to try Kubuqi on a bicycle to learn how to find the way and rescue by bicycle.
I downloaded several trajectories on Aowei in advance, and got a general idea of several large parking spots in Kubuqi.
On the 5.1 holiday, I left a day early and went straight to Kubuqi.
The first time I went to Kubuqi, I chose a moderately difficult route. I went out from Shenhu Lower Road and Yunliang No. 1 Camp. The total mileage was about 50 kilometers. It was roughly the green track. The fuel tank was full, and I also prepared 20 liter oil barrels for emergencies.
It is not too difficult to enter the sand mountain less than 2 kilometers after getting off the road from Shenhu Lake.
But since there are few cars going down this road and there are not many ruts, I started to find the way according to the trajectory. After searching for a while, I found that it was too troublesome and seriously affected the speed. I simply ignored the specific trajectory and chose the route directly according to the general direction.
Because it is a bicycle, I was very cautious at the beginning. The sandy mountain from Shenhu to Lao Wu’s house was relatively flat, and I passed it quickly. After passing Lao Wu’s house, the ups and downs began to increase. N times to carry the car, but fortunately, the three of my gentlemen still have some physical strength in the car, so I will dig when I carry it.
In the N times of carrying the car, I was rescued twice by a Raptor brother and a Lu Xun brother passing by. I am very grateful to the two brothers. They came to the rescue without hesitation after seeing me crossing by bicycle.
The level of our sand digging is also improving, shortened from 10 minutes at the beginning to 3 or 4 minutes each time. In fact, if you have mastered the skills, digging is not too slow. As long as you find the most loaded position, almost every time you shovel down, the car body will drop a little. I also tried to use a sand board in the middle, but it was not very effective, and the shovel was still solid. There are two strong men in the car, digging sand is not a problem!
I passed a small pot halfway, and it was quite enjoyable to cook for two laps.
About 3 hours later, after walking half of the distance, the road behind became more and more flat, and the wheels hit the high sand area on the left.
Although walking in the Gaosha District is a bit more difficult, it is also much more fun. With the previous experience, there are fewer and fewer cars, and the speed of the car is getting faster and faster. The brothers in the car are enjoying themselves.
Once I was a little bit thrilling, just rushed up a sandy slope, and found that it was slanting to the right. Fortunately, I reacted quickly, and hurried down to the right to spin the wheel, and finally there was no danger.
At 3 o’clock in the afternoon, it has reached the edge and is almost worn out.
At this time, a brother called and said he couldn’t reach me, he was worried about my bicycle and came in to have a look. What a good brother!
We met in the cauldron and shabu-shabu the cauldron together.
Back to camping in the low sand area until 6 o’clock, the temperature is very comfortable, more than 20 degrees in the tent at night.
On the second day, another wave of brothers also arrived, and brought a few novices with them to give it a try. From the cauldron to Yunliang Camp No. 1, it went downhill all the way, and it was quickly worn out.
On the third day, we did simple exercises in the low-sand area, then walked on the road to get close to the Manaogou, and then returned from the high-sand area.
Generally speaking, my 3.0 Sahara performed very well, there were no high water temperature and other problems, and the fuel consumption was also very pleasant, only 1/3 of the fuel was consumed for about 40 kilometers. The sand in Kubuqi is relatively hard, except that the car was not trapped by the soft sand throughout the journey.
