We arrived on Thursday night to dark dunes and a light breeze. Friday morning brought smooth buttery dunes and fast dune runs.
Lots of drop offs and shelves.
There are a few groups out this weekend, laying down some good tracks.
Fresh ripples all over with no tracks at all.
The dreaded W blew all night and looks to be continuing today. Maybe Monday's predicted storm rolling in early??
Sand is saturated and is slidy and then tons of hook up.
Camp area is pretty sparse, filled in a little last night, but definitely not a huge crowd.
Since we were just coming from Pahrump, we made it out yesterday about noon
Set up the Buggies...... First run, lugs stripped out of right rear wheel...😮 Damn, I hope I can find new VW 4to5 adapters in Vegas today, buddy will deliver to me later if I find them.
Watch the Knights Lose in a very sad fashion.
But Hey, we are here and loving it.... Love the Dunes😎
W has been light to full on gusty...
Pics are from this 0700 this AM😊

Merry Christmas from Dumont! I hope you all had a great time!
Today was a good day with some dune grooming. Not too crazy, just enough to smooth out the lighter tracks.
We spent most of the day kicking back with Christmas movies, like Krampus and making cookies, then riding in the afternoon.
JoeDuner arrived later in the afternoon and we went for another run.
Then it was back to the home for a full spread of ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, stuffing, broccoli and pie.
Now that the gluteny is over it's time for cocktails by the fire!
Love being out here Christmas week.
After sitting in the moho most of the morning, we finally uncovered the vehicles and cruised the dunes. Hit up the swing set and cruised to the South Pole.
Today its quiet and cloudy, we had a slight sprinkle, now it is just cloudy.
Time to chill with a movie and a cocktail.
What a great start to Christmas week at Dumont!
Arrived mid morning, unloaded the X3's and decorated the moho for Christmas. Exchanged presents with our CA family and then set out to tear up the sand.
Mike got me a new set of Eibach springs, so I couldn't wait to try them out. I can't believe how much smoother my ride was with a new set of springs and a shock adjustment.
Sand still had some good lines laid out from last weekend's buggy round up. Found some friends to line up with. It was good getting rides in with others before we settle in for the week with just one more hauler.
Cold and cloudy.
We pulled in last night and had some cool, but nice weather. @sandmandan, @Josh Weber, Gary, and @tmerrell we're already here and set up for the weekend. We had some good laughs around the fire. Buggy Roundup is underway and looking great so far. There's probably only 5 other camps out here. The sand is a little damp but not wet. Should be a nice weekend!
