I'm heading out tomorrow. The winds blew last week and cleaned the dunes from TDay.

You should have some nice riding.

Not sure how much wind is expected next week.

Wind is good!

Wind is our friend as it smooths out dunes.

Take it easy at first, expect for someone to be duning every dune you come up on. Be careful, dune with in eye sight of your camp while you tune and check your stuff out.
No hiking allowed! Have a great trip, we'll be back down on Thyrsday night. Maybe we'll see you!?! :shock: :? :lol:
Or not... :wink:
Buy your weekly pass at one of the Vendors if the Ranger Station is closed.
Have fun, and tell us all your impressions when the week is done.

You are going to love it!

PS if you see a fat old blond dude driving the rail below dune over and say "HI?"
I'll answer: "Maybe"
