we dont really get deep into the narrower trails but i have noticed. the sand hasnt been real smooth last few trips and hard to plan a trip when there isnt a utv invasion party as they have 5 a year down there now. rattlesnake and sand fest were bad enough , or so i thought. ;)

Bought this rack snuggy on an auction couple yrs back. Hadn't even finished car but knew I wanted it!  Fastcorvair donated it for a fundraiser on GD.com and I wasn't gonna be outbid. Finally got her installed. Only takes 5 min!  Don't know what took so long.  But anyone buying the cheaper $100-$200 racks yiu will need this as they will wear the alum down quick.  ;D ;D


I upgraded from a regular saco rack to a magnum and it already has slop. Any chance you have made a snuggy for saco magnums yet?

Nope.  Show me a picture of the magnum.

sad to say the least! i have seen t posts and fences unearth and disappear at ls. in fact right out the gate in the belly where we sit and wait for the group i have seen t posts appear and disappear. the dunes at st a ( i was told) are as tall as they are due to lava rock under them. that one spooked me a bit as a giant gaping hold can appear there too. i found 3 well heads in the trails at syracuse dunes and they were painted black. now one would think someone would paint them fluorescent something to help spot them but nope they were black. these are dangers for sure. i grew up in the sand hills and there have been deaths from digging holes and people getting buried and were not talking about deep holes a body would even fit in.

At least 1/2 of the trails are much narrower due to mostly sxs usage in just the last year.  It seems like the dunes hardly ever smooth out since the sxs's have taken over and most cut ruts in the sand instead of staying on top. I haven't seen much smooth sand all summer.

The Pit Stop / Death in the Dunes

We all pretty much take for granted the danger in duning. I had never before heard of this way though to die. Seeing how LS is changing so swiftly and I have seen things this last trip I have never seen before my level of caution is just a little higher now after reading this story especially considering how many trees are being engulfed in LS dunes.We probably have nothing to worry about @ LS but it is something to be aware of. Last week I came across an old well head sticking about 4 feet out of the sand where there had never before ,at least not in the last 20 years,been any sign of anything. I'm guessing about 12" diameter casing rusted all to hell with rusted into a pile chains and stuff and sooner or later it will be gone with only a hole left possibly. I looked down into the casing and I couldn't tell how far down it went but it went a long way. We also need to be extremely careful when anywhere near the dune boundary at LS since there may be disappearing steel t posts that reappear at times well within the boundary areas since LS dunes are constantly shifting.Many tires and even riders have been injured on the posts. Anyhow,please be careful of the hidden dangers at all dunes.  Here is an article that sent shivers thru me.

I wish enemy and I were just a little closer to the yellow car of fasts when he did the hand stand with it. He was very,very lucky that day. Other than the effed up chassis it got him.
