I know the bullhorn definitely helped, but I mean STILL! 😆 In past years some people never wake up and get moving.

Sunday the carnage continued when Rod's daughter found a nice place to park. oops! We all got together and managed to get it out of there and safely back to camp. Glad nobody was hurt!

Then we headed up to @sanddunesaddict's memorial and had a mimosa toast to him.

Wonder if Chad lost any headsets or cables or is curious how a little spot on an axle got polished. Better keep the shoe laces tight....

That's his brake line. I don't think we ever figured out why it broke.

I thought it happened when he rolled but guess not and the headset was still in the car wire didn’t get so lucky and sorry videos so large not sure how to shrink them

Not certain when it disconnected but guessing it was right before he came into view, 1st frame you see the end fitting and 1/10th second later (@ 10 frames/second) it's wound tight. Guessing heavy sand and having fun was the recipe

Thanks for hosting Pete. It was nice to meet you and get to take part. 

We wound up rolling in late Friday night. 

It was fun to see so many nice cars Saturday morning and the varying setups. 

 

I never made made it to the end of the rides though. Saturday morning we helped get the red mid engine apart after breaking a heim. About 5 minutes after we got going my son threw up, what a mess so we went back to camp. 

 

The ride to take a photo was fun. After we got going again from there I wound up stripping out a cv cup when it pulled off the shaft. Trying to figure out why it did that. Thanks to mustache Motorsports and his group for running back to camp and bringing a jack and a spare cup I had in the trailer. 

 

I had an awesome time for our first ever roundup and will be looking forward to meeting more people next year.

I didn’t get a single picture. I’ll have to see what my son took. I left my phone in the trailer and didn’t pick it up until we left. 

 

The buggy weigh in was fun too. I’m glad to know I wasn’t the only guy in the 3,000 lb. plus club. 3150 for me. 

Pete I think I figured out why my car was like 25 lbs. heavier on the left rear. The differential oil cooler is on that side.

Hey, check out Alpers G-out on the big air jump, the inset pic is at the jump apex, head vs headrest.....and the trailing arm angle, almost in coil bind. Sand is still spread even inside the rear wheel.

I had to reduce the size so hopefully it's still large enough for you to zoom in on everyone, but here is the group photo we took on Saturday.

 

Thanks again @FE135 ! 🤟

Likewise, would have been a cool shot from the dunes.

Thanks to everyone who stopped, when I broke a heim jouint, on my lower A arm.  Thanks to Brian and Amanda for getting me safely back to camp.  Parts from Theron and wrenching help from Gary, back on the next ride.  What a great weekend!   Thanks again Pete and Anna.

I'm still wondering why you were left behind. That wasn't cool.

 

As a general rule, if someone in front of you breaks, you stop and help. Same goes for if you can't see anyone behind you either.

 

Had I known earlier that you broke, Dan, we would have all stopped and helped you out. Steve mentioned to me at the north pole that you busted a heim and I was very confused. Why were we were all at the north pole and you were still back in the dunes broke down? I apologize for how that went down. I could only see 3-4 cars back.
