Better have your heaters in working order. Anyone looked at the forecast?  3: BRRRRR!!!!!!!  It was a bit warmer the last 4 days though.We had a great time.  Honestly,I'll take pretty damn warm over bbrrrrr any day. Lets try to not do it too early next spring . If the forecast is close to right it will still be chilly as hell this fall.

have not looked at the extended forecast. are we talking upper 40's and low 50's for highs?? thats getting chilly for extended riding.  60's for highs would be perfect! dry and 60's that is lol hell one trip was low 50's and misting rain for 2 or 3 of the days. doug was lucky enough to make that trip! had a fire going day and night for 3 days lol

the forcast will improve before then and yes approching freezing at night is not good. low 60's for high is good. we may not get a fall this year. this later than we usually like to go and we did have dates for 10pth 11th of oct but glen and jerry couldnt make those dates lol not sure if they will be able to make these new dates. hope they can. no matter what thats nice cool weather for pulling a toyhauler down!

Hell, I don’t believe the weather forecast 5 days from now.  My crystal ball doesn’t work that good.  I hate to hear that enemy and Carl can’t make it.  As long as we don’t have another burn ban, I’ll be ok.  I started the new sheet metal work a few days ago.  Got the roof done, 2 side wings and laying out the main trunk box.

It will be a lot nicer weather in 2 weeks when I go back for a couple more days when sandracer and his crew show up.  I will say this though,the dunes are massively different than last year. I have never seen such a dramatic change in them in just a year. I've never seen a couple of them as tall/steep. Buttercup is ,for all purposes,gone.

not surprised with all the trafic down there now. some wind and 3 times the toys. i have to agree, imo, buttercup was still decent sized in 03\04 but has steadily shrank. seems like the last 6 or so years all the sand has shifted SE.

I think Buttercup itself has moved mostly North/Northwest.

Just wait till you see it now. The dunes are definitely moving north.

SWEEET!
In a couple more decades us northerners will only have to drive to Kansas to dune!  ;D
Wish I could make this one, but my handlers say I have been absent from the chain gang past the allowable limit for the year as well.
I expect pictures and stories of authentic battle damage! Except Mitch... He got it done last run  ;)
