Sand Mountain Trip Report

Labor Day 2007

Sand Mountain - Labor Day Weekend 2007
2007 Labor Day Weekend - Sand Mountain, NV

 

First run with the new sand car

        

        

First trip in the new sand car went well.  We did lots of tweaks to the bypass shocks, and did a bunch of driving.

Taking a break at Superbowl - Jeff's Buckshot, Dave's Fabrications Unlimited and Mark's Tom Pro Designs.

Paul's ultralight flight over Sand Mountain ends with a ticket for $275

This Ranger came up right next to where Paul was setting up. He was asked if there was a problem taking off and his answer was "I don't see a problem with it".

Another Ranger came up to us after Paul landed and said that he was going to have to give him a ticket, but that "it wouldn't be that bad". The ticketing officer said the one that gave Paul the permission "didn't know what he was talking about." Paul's ultralight flight over Sand Mountain ended with a BLM Ranger giving him a $275 ticket. So much for consistent law enforcement.

BLM presence at Sand Mountain was a bit extreme.  They had a trailer and sand rail from Glamis up, plus the sand rail from Carson City.  At least on Raptor, and probably ten other street vehicles.  Pretty sure the cost for the weekend was pretty hefty.  BLM could have done the same job with half the force.

Brian's exploded Mendeola S4

Brian broke his brand new Mendeola S4 Transaxle.  This was his second trip.  The ring gear exploded and broke through the case.
