Embarrassed truck owners park the opposite direction and hope no one catches that it is the back end of a Chevy.

So this means we won't have to call him this year.

Poor Ranger Joe. He just isn't happy until we're not happy.

A group of us are going to try and take over the back corner of Yogi this year. Last year Morris slept in a truck tent. So i don't think you'll have an issue.
If you don't want to pay for a full site, I'd be willing to go half with someone since its just going to be me on my site.

Last year it was like 83-84.
If they get those two sites again, I'm gonna aim for getting the one across it. Like 64 i think.

Alex I think he meant sleep in his truck on the dunes. They close it at 9 or 10. I did do the bed tent thing last year but it got old every day taking it off and putting it on to go play. I'll be bringing the reptar this year fo sho.

ok, ill go half on a site with you. That's close enough. Its 6.5 hrs from my place to there, so id be rolling in mid afternoon on the Friday. I would want to leave Monday morning, not Sunday. that way its a good two full days there. as for the truck tent, i dont mind sleeping in it i can have it up and down in 5 minutes.

if you wanna book it lets do it soon, i can Paypal you the money. they have some kind of event going on. June 8-10: Asparagus Festival Weekend

im going to come back for the labor day weekend also, if anybody wants to go in September.

That's what some of us were thinking, a late summer trip would also be nice. My vaca is the week before labour day and if I time it right I'm off almost two weeks.
I also found it was quicker and easier to just undo the straps and pull it out with a couple peeps as built instead of the teardown thing.

So our pee is gonna smell funny in June?

Yep, exactly what im thinking. Plus working for a ford dealer now, they are totoaly fine with me doing ford related trips or events.

idk about you but im bringing a BBQ and steaks. i guess the asparagus can be our "vegi" on the side. and BTW, that sounds a tad gay.


so ill need a dune flag, what size bolt do they use so i can add a weld tab on my bumper? I hope to have 2.0 shocks on all corners by this trip.

The flags use a 1/2" thread so a 17/32" hole will be perfect for the flag holes.

You can just pay me when you get there. We won't pay until we check out.

I'm probably gonna shoot out there Wednesday, so you can just pay for half for when you stay.

I'm not worried.

Labor day is a maybe. I know i get it off, but we'll see.

I'll probably bring my little weber style grille. So you'll be welcome to cook on that. I'm still debating if i want to bring out my quad or not. I'm leaning towards maybe, but it dosen't fit in the bed of my truck. so i'd be pulling a trailer.

ok sounds good. are we going to reserve it before hand? if your out there wed, i may drive down thursday night, not sure. Its really not a bad run.

I'll bring out my 110 atc, but for the most part will have the truck as the atc isnt all that quick.

need:
2.0 shocks
flag and tab
skid plate
race seats (maybe)
front tow point
rear tow point, maybe tube rear bumper.
rear limit straps
front bumpstops

F this cold...
