Halloween 2017 weekend reports

Recommended Posts

Post up your pics and weekend trip reports here! 

 

It was another huge turnout this weekend with about 16,000 visitors per the BLM. LOTS of dust this year. All in all  it was a great time though. Nobody in our group got hurt and we laid down some really good dune runs. It felt great to be back . I'll get some more pics up when I go through them all.

I cruised up the hill to the south to see all the lights in camp. Dumont City!

The half moon was dropping fast so I grabbed my camera and managed to snap a couple handheld shots before it dropped below the mountain.

Saturday morning was really nice. The temperature was perfect.

Ben and I went out for a morning rip. There were hardly any duners out yet in the dunes. We got a great run in.

I watched these guys play around on the hills for a bit.

I stopped over at Walter and Howard's camp to say hi. It was cool to see them bring out all of the decorated RZRs.

I swung by vendor row and saw Howard cruising out in the Flintstone-mobile.

It was getting warm so I relaxed in my shaded hammock with a cold beverage for a while.

I could go for a pizza.

Despite the warm temps, we all headed our for a big group run. We were laying it down pretty good, therefore everyone started running a bit warm so we stopped to cool off.

Robyn and Chris headed out for some camp hoppin. His Spazmatic car actually did really well this trip!

Saturday night we headed over to the Trunk or Treat. It was pretty awesome! There were a ton of people over there and @JeepingJay36 did a great job hosting it. It was like one big party.

Howard won one of the plaques. I think it was the Star Wars car that took best decorated UTV.

Comp Hill was insane.

After rolling through looking for our group for probably 45 minutes to an hour, I was getting impatient. My clutch foot was getting tired. lol So I blasted up Comp and just sat up there for a bit checking out all the lights and mayhem.

I went back down and found some of our group. I chatted with a few friends that stopped by and had a good time as usual at the hill.

Had a fantastic weekend!! Brought some newbies out and they got bit by the D Bug! Was a little warm but our cars did pretty great. Had a full rear end swap happen in camp and it was back to the sand! Almost everyone drive back on the trailer so I would call it a win.

Very nice trip stayed until monday. I was at comp on Friday night but Saturday the doggies were not feeling it so I skipped the Trunk or Treat. I liked the crowd reminded me of the the big boom Dumont had around the 2005/2010s. Truck did good, still needs way more horsepower.

Man looks like an epic Halloween. Always one of my favorite times to get out to the Dunes. What a crowd and looks like everyone had a blast. Going to get out on an off weekend or try to head out for a couple days on Thanksgiving weekend.
