Tyre pressure off road

Hi, I'm heading to a property near Bourke that has lots of dusty red dirt. Currently running tourances & wondering what people recommend running in the way of psi when in the loose stuff with these tyres. I've only ridden the storm on gravel & hard packed fire trails. I would have guessed dropping from mid thirties to high twenties to get a bit more surface area.
I'll be 1up with a light load. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I picked 20 psi and take it slow. Under inflated tyres can over heat which can result in reduced life and damage. I've read that some go as low as 15.
