Thursday we got some rain out there and the sand was a bit damp all weekend, but by Sunday the sand dried out pretty good. Other than all our buggy ruts, the dunes were awesome! Still a few big holes and witches eyes. i know I found one! 😥
Today's conditions were 90% windy with a 10% lightly breezy....
Still a good day. Relaxing. Some of the die hards still rode, it's season opener, and sandticipation outweighs the W....
Made a visit to Ba Bert and cleaned the sand off his memorial plaque... He needs a fresh Pepsi and cookies..
Arrived at Dumont at 10:45 PM to perfect weather and the scent of fresh sand and dwindling campfires drifting through the air as I crested into the camp area... Chilled for a couple hours visiting before hitting bed... Dogs were up at daybreak... Perfect for a relaxing morning... We hit the dunes at 10:00 AM, stopped for lunch, back out, break until the sunset ride... The sand is perfect, dry, rippley, some razers and shelves, lots of blow sand, the lines were still good and the runs were fast, had comp to ourselves... Perfect start to our Dumont season...
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.
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!
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!!!
