sustained to 36 gusts to 58!

The dunes will be all blown out, and away, what a waste...
How will anyone be able to dune? There will be no tracks to follow!

Good idea!

Just think about how much gas I would save too. I could trailer it in, set up the awning and place the two or three refreshment coolers. Then I could spend the entire day enjoying the dunes from my lounge chair under the EZ UP.

Once every hour or two I would start it up in some dramatic fashion, run across the hill once or twice to impress my posse and the masses assembled there; then come back and shut it down again.

The next time the dunes are smoothed out by the wind, I'm headed straight for the hill.

:lol:
