Summer 2014 Silver Lakes Sand Dunes Trip.

The Blowtorch/Potato Committee is kicking around the idea of going for a whole week this year. Our tentative dates are around May 27th to May 31st/June 1st

Since many of the repeat offenders aren't exactly on the forums anymore, If yous guys could spread the word, that'd be great.

As always, Beer is required and Advice given will not be any good.

Hope to see a good turnout this year for whatever days we decide.

Obligatory sand pictures

If it's a whole week that time frame won't work for me.

I would have to wait until our plants summer shutdown. We get a week off. I don't know the exact date yet. I will post when I know.

You wouldn't have to come for the entire week. Although we would miss you, and if anyone has your phone number we may call you and hook up the phone to the DeWalt radio (Just ask Andy)

We would probably come the second weekend then.

School will be out so my wife won't have to worry about taking time off.

So it'll be Thurs-Sun for us

Rob told me something similar. last year we did a similar thing, Go out Wednesday afternoon and stay till Sunday.

Even if it is Just Maly and I, We'll still raise some hell. Plus i figure a week makes it worthwhile for some people who have to travel more than like 3-4 hours.

I will be in the area-ish (Traverse City) whenever I transfer this summer. I don't know exact dates I'm moving yet but as long as it's around that time before or after I will be able to make it! Time to break in the new 4x4! haha Hopefully my leave is during that time and I can do the whole frikin week!

I'll see what i can do. I know I could but not sure Kayla will have enough days to use. I'll have a better idea in feb-april maybe, usually when i make the rez. I really need to get the motor rebuilt in the ranger before i go though..hopefully I can manage to slip that in sometime this winter.

Mine is a 1983, and its the gray one, not some other faggy color. It has some minor cosmetic work done to it. I am looking at Craigslist weekly for a Yamaha Blaster motor to stuff in there, bump it up to a 200cc bike. For being 30 years old it is in really good shape. There is a dent in the gas tank and a scratch on the exhaust guard, that I would fix, but they dont make the decals for it any more.
