Thanks Wes, I was happy with how it turned out. It will look really good in someone's garage. 😉

are you planning on selling it when you get back?

The thought has crossed my mind.  I'm tired of it taking my garage stall.  I don't put enough miles on it to justify owning it.

I figured someone would likely have more fun with it than I do.

You might think differently once you hit some real dunes...................................  ;) ;)

Fall break and a Saturday does suck. About the same as spring break on a Saturday. The buggy's air conditioning will really be nice next summer. Best if both worlds,AC and the dunes all to myself.

The dunes are a bit disappointing . They've been too wet and not nearly enough south wind. They are a lot flatter than I've seen them. Faces are not as steep. No razors either.

Car's loaded and ready for go.  I can tell that my first gear is lower then it has been.  Went up the ramp with less effort.  Going to have some adjustment to do, it didn't want to go into neutral very well when I got it in the trailer.  Had to play with the gear shiftier some before I found it. going to leave out after early church. 

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.

Lots of ponds. Rounded peaks. Many seem to be a bit shorter and less steep

Well,  I made it home safely, and I came back knowing that I have made some great friends. What an outstanding group of people who all have a love for playing in the sand. 

Admittedly my first time to the dunes wasn't what I would call a true success, as I was over geared, over spring, not dampened well, running hot, and puking oil from the clutch cover, but I made it down and back safely, so it wasn't a failure. 😉

I'm already looking forward to the next one, and I'll have plenty of time to get it ready.

Thank you for the memories!
