Sand Mountain Trip Report

Spring Break 2005

Sand Mountain - Spring Break 2005
We arrived Thursday right before dark.  The place was pretty deserted. That's our 
small camp (three rigs) in the middle of the picture to the right of the first bathroom.

Sand Mountain - Krazy Keven
Krazy Keven was already there and set up by Friday.

Sand Mountain - Kate on Suzuki 80

The only casualty for the weekend was Mike's Toyota.  A nail in a tire meant a
trip to Fallon for a flat repair.

Sand Mountain - Mike trying to get to Superbowl
Mike tried to get his Toyota up to Superbowl.  He was short by a few horsepower.

Sand Mountain Trip - Stuck in South Lake Tahoe

We awoke Saturday to the sound of gusting wind and rain. After listening to the
weather reports, we decided to head out and see if we could beat chain control
of the summit.  We made it up and over Spooner Pass, but they put up chain
controls about 45 minutes before we made it to Meyers.  After a bit of thought,
we decided to fork over the $150 for chains (rear axle on the 4x4 truck, and 
one axle on the Weekend Warrior). 

The rest of our party were in motorhomes and decided to wait it out and see if
chain control lifted.  They ended up spending the night in South Lake Tahoe. The
next morning they decided to buy chains and give it a try.  By the time they reached
Meyers, CalTrans lifted chain control.....
