We had a great ride in the dunes today.  The sand was smooth, no one broke down, or had to be dug out.   I am very pleased with how well the buggy turns and handles the bumps/dips.

About five hours of hart pounding speed and tight corners With SandSavior lending.  Don was following Jerry then 78Crew then me. Some of the big bowl's my GPS said we were flying at 45 to 50 miles per hour.  The sand was so soft you could not coast downhill, you had to power your car down the steep hills. We all need to give 78Crew the big ada-boy for his driving performance in the dunes today, for being a newbie to the sand and buggy world.  He was kind of the under dog with just a 2332 VW but he climbed every hill we went up and stayed right on Don's tail.  78's car is light and the front end works so good, I watched him hit the bottom of some of the taller dun's at speed and the front of his car sucked up the transition like it was nothing.  He has reason to be proud of how far he has come.  So let me be the first to say Your the man Justin.   Hair on fire bounce

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

I fully expect to see a new set of wrist restraints next week Crew.  Your going faster all the time now and need them.

It looks like an awesome day on the sand, out running with the big dogs.  Glad the car is doing so good.  Keeping up with SandSavior keeps you on your toes, better have your “A” game going.  The wrist restraints are not very expensive, but worth every penny.

I don't see them either. Were they there after to site relocation or before?
