It’s been a few years since we been out to Dumont, we had a great time! Any way we head out there early Friday morning from the Lancaster area, everything goes fine until we get to Baker and fuel up the truck. As I’m doing a walk around of the rig my brother points out a huge bubble in the sidewall of one of my tires! So we change it out no problem. Get to the dunes and and have a good time all weekend. One of our neighbors went out there for the first time also so we talked to them for a while. My buggy ran good all weekend, we helped out a few fellow duners who were having some issues out near the North Pole. Generally had a good time and can’t wait to go back. But.... then on the way home we had some problems! My dads truck has a blow out on the 15, I looked in my mirror just as it blew, wow it was carnage! It smashed up the side of his truck pretty good, he said guess it’s time to make it a flat bed!!! We put the spare on and continued home. We definately had some tire issues this trip. When we got home I’m unloading the buggy and notice trans fluid all over the floor of the trailer . It looks like the shift shaft seal popped out, I was beat so I’ll look at it tomorrow or........ overall a good weekend, we will repair and rebuild and be out there soon!!
The bubble in that pic doesn’t really do it justice, it got bigger by the time I let the air out!!!
