    Dumont Is Cleaned Up For Sure

    Overall conditions: great
    Well after yesterday's hurricane Sandy, the dunes got a good cleaning, not that they needed it though. We didn't get much duning in yesterday so we hope to hit them this morning. It's a little breazy at times, but it seems the W has passed... I hope! I don't even want to talk about it because it might come back. It was pretty bad. We didn't burn much wood last night because we all ended up in our RVs around 9pm & watched movies. Not a great last trip of the season for us because we have fuel to burn, but they can't all be epic trips. Still happy to be here this weekend. 


    Cleanup Got Windy!

    Overall conditions: fair
    Today started out beautiful with a slight breeze. We just got back from picking up a couple bags of trash for the cleanup and the W kicked up big time. The gusts are pretty fierce. 

     
     
     
     

    Smooth And Shelfy

    Overall conditions: great
    The "W" howled all night, leaving the dunes buttery smooth, but very shelfy!
    When I got up early this morning to get milky way shots, there was no breeze. Now there's just a slight one.
     
    No tracks and barely any one here.
     
    The military birds just blew over us in the dunes! 
     
    Looking forward to tomorrow's clean up events!
     
     






    Not The Most Ideal Conditions

    Overall conditions: fair
    There's surprisingly numerous camps out here! 
    The dunes have moved significantly and are jacked up from the last time I was here a month ago...
     
    Clouds have rolled in, wind and rain spitting.
     
    I forgot my contacts and my glasses are making it hard to see bouncing all over...
     
    Eh... At least I'm not at home!!!


    10Th Yr Anniversary Trip Before The Crowds

    Overall conditions: epic!
    There's nothing better then an off weekend in the sand! There's maybe 10 small camps in the entire camp area.
     
    The sand is ripply smooth on top, but still wet not to far from the surface.
     
    It's a bit warm, but not horrible hot.
     
    We are chilling in the shade of the x3 while taking a break from a great rally!
     
    The stars were out last night, with no moon, just incredible!
     
     
     





    Superbowl Weekend - Saturday Morning

    Overall conditions: great
    Just got back from an hour or so in the dunes and they are tracked out big time! There aren't many camps out here this weekend, but there are a few big camps with a bunch of buggies. Many of these guys have been out here all week running the smooth dunes which is why those dunes are now so beat up. We need a good, short wind storm to clean this place up. We're having a good time though enjoying the gorgeous weather. It's nice and warm with a slight breeze every now and then. 
     

     

     
     

    Getting The Sand Fix

    Overall conditions: great
    It's a chilly morning! The dunes are empty and so is camp! I love me some off weekend dunes!
     
    The dunes have a few tracks, alot of virgin sand, some drop offs and razors. It's dry on the top and still wet under. The tops have a lot of the wet sand that the recent W has blown the dry off of.


    Starting To Fill In

    Overall conditions: good
    It's already starting to get filled in. It's looking like it's going to be a busy New Year's weekend. On Tuesday the camps started to do all over the flats, with a couple of huge camps already formed. Maybe they'll only stay for the week and leave before the busy crowded holiday weekend?
     
    We've already had a couple of close calls and saw the medivac helicopter fly in yesterday. Don't know if there was an accidental or just training?
     
    We've laid down some damn good tracks and yesterday when people started arriving, the cross tracks got pretty deep.
