Some great pics everyone, I sure missed getting out there, but still in Huntsville, Al. Did hit up Talladega being as I was already here. Dropped my camera from row 49 tower, never did find it when I made it down. I'll be missing the Poker Run as well, will be in Louiseville, Ky for a couple weeks after this. Will be ready to get back and hit a couple off weekends for sure. Car looks great Bert, Congrats.... Great pics again...SF Woody

Awesome vid Mike. I use Sony Vegas Pro 8.1 for my videos. You used a Gopro camera for those? I need to get me a Gopro.

Thanks. Yes it is the Gopro. I use the power director 8. I need a new computer though. MY peocessor is running at 100% the whole time it is in production.

Hey don't bring me into this! laughing.gif j/k Not sure what truck you mean, but I saw DIRT freak(s) ? on a truck out there.

This truck? I know one of the girls who hangs out with these guys but I don't know what forum they post at.

It was great to get out in the dunes again! Got some good runs in and the car held up great for 6 days. My friend John, (Sandemon) didn’t have as much luck. He was plagued with issues from the start culminating in a thrown rod through the engine case. It was good to get out and see some friends I haven’t seen in awhile.

Bert, congrats on the new car, I knew it would be there. May it bring your family years of enjoyment!

Shout out to Brian and family AKA Camp idiots(?) Thanks for letting me try some photo experiments on your car (I’m still working on them).

I will rant for a moment, after my accident last year, I am like a fighter pilot. My head is on a swivel and I’m looking for threats all around. Unfortunately, I feel alone. People, PLEASE,, look over a dune before you cross. I had three close calls and one was potentially bad. I don’t think the owner of the Sand Pirates car has any idea just how close his family on the right side of his car was from major injury. I was cruising along in a bowl and his car just appeared right in front of me. I slammed the brakes and turned right hard. My car pitched sideways 90 degrees and cleared his by INCHES!!!! They kept going like I wasn’t there. Shortly after that, a dirt bike crossed my path looking the wrong way. Luckily, I anticipated him and slowed down. He never saw me. Later a sandrail crossed in front of me and they were all looking up hill. Never knew I was there. I even nailed the throttle and pulled up on the left side high on the bowl to waive but no luck so I turned away. It had a Subaru engine with lime green covers. My car got creamed last year, Joe duners RZR got creamed (just heard this here and hope he is OK), and it sounds like others have been close. I now run my front lights on during the day, hope it helps. I will be looking out for you,, PLEASE, look out for me. Rant off.

I did take lots of pictures and will post up some tomorrow.

Might have been me bud, sorry if it was a close one and never saw you. I'm usually the one turning away and taking a different line away from ppl headed towards me and not looking. I'm usually pretty aware of others around me as I run heavy equipment for a living and have to always look around and not squish ppl. Was this the jerk LOL? http://www.youtube.com/user/crewzin70

I don't think it was you. I couldn't see your engine in the video, the belt cover was a brite florescent green. I'm not calling anyone names, this is more of a situational awareness issue. Call it the safety message of the week. There is a new generation of duners out there now who haven't yet figured out the pitfalls and unwritten rules. "Big dune theory" of avoidance won't work. Nice buggy BTW!

Got to the dunes about 8am on Saturday.

Got unloaded and had to finish up a couple things on the car. :blury:

Got everything done and went to make the rounds to see everyone.

Ashley and the girls came out Sunday morning and we had some very nice runs with the car with the whole family.

Ashley was very impressed with how the car rides.

A very good weekend with very little issues on a brand new car.

Bert, car looks sweet! Seems like you had no major problems with first trip to thats awesome! Hope to see you at the poker run and see it in action

Rough one for the start of the season.....We found out who really spent time on their ride in the off season-

Rail Issues with group:

Broken Reverse in 2 different cars (both 2D's)

Blown Engine (subie)

Smoked a turbo (oil line broken)

Fried Altenator

broken front A-arm

Still all had an effin blast. Good peeps this trip so no real trouble at all compared to last Haloween. Can't wait to go back.

yep that was me, broke the reverse 1st day, if you get stuck just get help. Called Jon @ RC trans, then drained the oil and did not try reverse again.
