Friday brought in some nasty winds but eventually died down around 4 pm allowing for everyone to finally get out of camp and go enjoy the sand. The dunes got a little grooming from all the wind too which was good because there was some recent rain over the last week causing some funky sand in some spots. Saturday was some very nice weather other than it being a little warm (mid 80's). The wind stayed away for the rest of the weekend though.
Saturday night was the big night, Halloween! As a group of us sat and watched the sun go down you could see the flow of traffic going from comp to camp. Everyone was wrapping it up and going back to camp for dinner and then of course...trick-or-treating time! The kids were out in full force. Vendor row gave out candy as well as most camps who came prepared. The trick-or-treat mobiles were very impressive this year. Trailers covered in decorations, usually fake body parts and other scary stuff, were pulled into camps to show off their Halloween spirit and bring the kids in. Trick-or-treating is always such a great way for the dune community to have fun together. It's always a very positive and happy vibe.
Comp Hill was pretty full Friday night, but nothing like Saturday. It seems everyone was saving it up for the big night. Duners in costumes, hundreds of lighten whips, the famous McFlurry, decorated buggies...you name it and it was there. Halloween was very alive at Dumont. As technology advances, it's crazy to see the changes that take place at the dunes over the years. Many people are familiar with the quadcopters and drones. Well this year there was a floating Grim Reaper putting the scare on everyone thanks to a very skilled drone operator. He had it attached to the drone and would fly him all over the rows of duners taking everyone by surprise. And of course let's not forget the Flintstones. These friends of ours killed it with their costume setup. Oh and if that wasn't enough, the same group as the drone guy dragged a lighted coffin lit up in LEDs up and down the rows of comp.

Here are some build pics. These guys spent months on the project.
NV residents: Expect approximately 30 minute delays going south on HWY127 (from Tecopa or Shoshone) at the Inyo/ San Bernardino county line due to construction. There is also a few miles of construction on 160 near the Tecopa turnoff where it is down to one lane but it isn't a delay.

Polaris is taking this action after confirming that, in some reports, a vent line had been pinched during assembly. In those cases, Polaris has also received reports of the driveline contacting a pressurized and expanded fuel tank, resulting in a fuel leak and a fire hazard. Polaris also received two reports of small fires, but could not confirm whether the vent line was obstructed during assembly or during subsequent accessory installation or whether the pinched vent line was the cause of the fires.
