Glamis Sand Dunes Trip #3

I had a good time out at the Glamis Sand Dunes this weekend. It was nice and sunny though it was very windy on Saturday. Blayne's new dune buggy is very powerful and fast. I kept whooping and hollering, I couldn't contain myself. It was very fun.

This time I remembered to completely zip up my tent when I set up camp. Last time I closed the entrance but left the mesh widows uncovered. Later, I found the entire interior of the tent and my sleeping bag covered with a fine dust which had sieved through the fine mesh covering the windows. That sucked.

We went on a real fun night ride out to Competition Hill. A very steep, high dune that everyone races up real fast. I went up a few times with Blayne and then with Jeff. Jeff was able to make it up the hill in his Jeep Wrangler. It was allot slower and scarier but very cool.

I rode back to camp in the Jeep Wrangler, but Blayne accidentally led us off the main Sand Road into the Dune Field. We had a crazy time going down many really sharp and steep razorbacks in the Wrangler. We almost got stuck once but were able to power out. All the dune buggy riders were congratulating Jeff on his amazing driving skills when we got back to camp.

I also went on a long ride with a ATV Sunday morning. It is very beautiful out in the dunes, like being on the moon.
