    im getting the 10 and the max lens mod thanks to you LOL. what mounts are you using on the car? 

     

    Haha you won't regret it. The footage is worth it.

    Front mount: just a sticky GoPro mount on the roof

    Rear mount: cage mount with the GoPro adapter on it. It's a pretty stout roll bar mount made by Eyeofmine but I don't think they're in business anymore. I'll get a picture and post it. They are basically light rigging clamps (like this) with a small L bracket and GoPro tripod adapter mounted on it.

    What model GO Pros are you using?

     

    A GoPro 9 and a 10 (basically the same camera). I'm using a GoPro Max lens mod on each camera. That gives it more stabilization plus full horizon lock. It works awesome for dune videos to really show the angle of the dunes and the car especially when sidehilling.

  3. We pulled in Thursday night and there was nobody out there. The temps were a little chilly but the fire leaf blower got the fire going nice and hot because all our firewood was wet.

    Friday was the duning day. Lou has been chasing a brake issue and lost his brakes on a dune run. That was fun! He almost ran into me but luckily found somewhere to go rather than my car. lol

    He peeled off and went back to camp to get it fixed while we hung out on the dune overlooking the camp area. I think we counted about 20-30 camps. Very empty for MLK weekend. I think the weather scared everyone away.

    We played around on the ATCs for a bit.

    Later in the day we went out for a sunset ride and stopped in the middle of the dunes.

    Saturday was a total bust. If we were motivated enough in the morning we could have squeezed one in but we didn't make it out. We put the covers on the cars and prepped for the rain which came about noon. Chad's car looked like a limp Oscar Meyer weiner car. LOL

    The rain came and we didn't leave camp all day. It was a nice, lazy day inside Chad's motorhome watching movies.

    On Sunday it was pretty nice. Still overcast as hell and gloomy-looking but decent temps and no W. The sand was soaking wet. We went for an easy, don't break the trans, dune run.

    Later in the day we finally rolled out. The Amargosa river was flowing really well. I haven't seen that much water out there ina while. The crossing was still very passable though.

    Overall it was a nice, chill weekend. I know MLK weekend isn't very busy but it was empty this year. I wasn't mad about that. Great trip. Nothing broke and I'm stoked to get back out asap. :thumb:

  4. It's kind of a matter of personal preference. I put in the cooler white like 5500K and it felt like a operating room in there. lol It was weird. So I put in the warm white (3500K) and they look more normal and they're still plenty bright. You could always go cooler white in the kitchen and bathroom and warm in the bedroom and under cabinets. 

  5. Thanks to each and every one of you who came out to keep the tradition of Buggy Roundup alive. The final count was 75 sandcars! Best trip of the season. You guys are awesome. 

     

    More photos and video to come. 

     

    Please post up any photos or favorite highlights.
