I'll be there if I'm not at work. I got a turbo RX and a sandrail. My rail is powered by a 2.3L HO quad-4 injected. Not sure which I'll bring, the RX hasn't seen the sand yet. What day or days are we talking here? I'm off Sundays-Wed.

Too bad your going to Sand Lake. Now if you were going to the Oregon Dunes National Park (Coos Bay, OR), I would meet up with you, as I will be there that weekend. Not sure what I'm going in as of yet, (Hmm, the Turbo or the Legacy, decisions, decisions).

 

Either way, I like the Dunes Park a little better, bigger, better dunes, more beach!!

How did the trip go? Pictures?

 

NF was great! Set up orange markers on the way there and ran into two groups of lost people thanking us for doing so. No more getting lost! Went down to the shore for the first time, took the chance and headed down past the little stream. The Northern Washington group should get together for a bbq before september ends. I have to get a set date, but late next month somewhere south pre-Seattle, would probably work best. Let me know what you think.

trip went great, had a good time next time will make sure I have 2 fans on the rad , as it would warm up a bit and would let it cool, this was only when I got on it really hard like hitting a big hill, it went better then I had hoped it would, will most likely go again next year , had a blast Scott

those rear tires are 31 x 13.5 sx swampers balding , just a test I did , looks good , the next day I ran the 215/75 -15 all around about 8psi which ran better , those 31s were a little overkill
