When you live in the desert you have two choices, dust or sand. Both of them will get all over your truck and find every little place to settle. After every wheeling trip I go on I have to wipe the thick layer of dust off of my dash board and from the inside of my windows. Dust and sand both have their negatives. In dust that usually means there are shrubs, trees, bushes, and cactus around which will love to scratch the heck out of your paint. In sand you have to worry about lubericating undercarriage parts. I'd rather have my paint screwed up than worring about parts failing, but in the desert where there is dust there is usually always sand, it goes hand in hand. After one really good wax/buff job I still can't get out many scratches in the paint.

yup, we stayed in the closest hotel to the dunes, it is a little bit north of the flats though, back up i-80.

It's been 2+years since I've been there, and I miss it. I miss the wendover crappy hotel we used to stay at.

Ya definately. Same for you. I have been trying to get down there but it keeps falling through either cuz work or friends flaking! I was thinking about going for the Easter meet but my better judgment kept me from going in fear of dying! Let me know when u can make it down there...even IF u ride a Honda...J/K
