I was told that Oregon inlet is part of Hwy 12, and if you got stuck AAA would come get you. I heard that from a tow truck driver on labor day as he was getting my buddy's piece o crap SUKsuki samari out. He liked to see how far he could get without 4x4. He got 5 yards off the dune and started digging in.He locked it up, and nothing worked in 4x4. Then nothing worked in 2x4. The tow guy had a hummer that would get it to the asphalt. then we got it to my buds house in KDH. the guy might just have been rubbing it in.
