Sand Mountain Trip Report

August 15, 2008

Sand Mountain Nevada

Sand Mountain, NV

This was a quick trip for me, and will mark a change to the way I dune for now. I decided last March to sell my sand car, and today was the day I delivered it to its' new owner at Sand Mountain.

I am really going to miss the rush that I got from a fast dune ride while following Pat (Duneflyer) or Mike (Mike330R) down in Glamis, but I think this will make things a lot more simple.

There will be no replacing the 600HP that came with my sand car.  Instead I will be chasing 75HP or 100HP in a UTV. I may be crazy, but I really enjoy the ability to do different types of terrain, and UTVs may be a lot slower, but they are very capable - from dunes to rock crawling and everything in between. With two side x side vehicles, we can gather up the whole family and go for a ride, and always have two vehicles in case of breakdown.

I can fit both UTVs on a 16 ft. open trailer.

Will I be satisfied with the decision to go without a sand car?  I am not sure.  I do know that if I ever get another one, I will go with less power, smaller, lighter, more simple.  But then again, who really knows....
