Sand Mountain Trip Report

Sand Mountain Alert: Boycott Fox Peak gas station in Fallon

May 2006 - Day Trip

Forecast was 85 degrees and just a light wind for our May 12 day trip to Sand Mountain. We stuffed two rails in one trailer and headed to Sand Mountain for a bit of testing. Bob's Hayabusa mini rail had a new turbo setup (header, intake, plenum and exhaust) and we were working on some fine tuning to Jon's mid-engine sand car.  The wind had blown pretty hard during the week, so we were treated to some smooth sand.

On the Drive Home

On the way home, we hit something on the road with the trailer and ended up blowing two tires on the trailer near Lake Tahoe. One tire was completely shredded and the other has a nice puncture hole in the tread. With only one spare on a Friday night in Lake Tahoe, we decided to use fix-a-flat and tire plugs to try to salvage the tire with the puncture. It was successful, and we limped home after a long day.
