Default Silver Lake Sand Dunes opening week

Where are the pictures from people that went there? I know there is lots of pics over at SLF but I want to see some GL4x4 pics. :)

How are the hills? Last year test was pretty lame with the flat area near the top.

Someone needed amber lamps for a broken back?

From the pictures Ive seen over at slf, test hill is very peaked and looks almost straight up the last few feet. Might actually be a test for the first time in a long time.

It's way harder this year for sure, I was up there friday, and didn't see nearly as many trucks make it as last summer.

Kinda wierd, but I believe I saw you Friday. You were in your dad's yellow Rubi?


We were in the white CJ checking out the Yellow 5.3'd TJ that had the gas tank issues.

I was there saturday and the hills are much better than last year. Test hill peaks very well at the top and plan on gettin some air!! There is even a little 5 foot hill right after the top of test hill. Ihad quite a bit of air myself but it was a blast. Mother nature has been good to silver lake.

Yeah, that was me. That gas tank thing was crazy, did you see the jump that caused it? I will throw some pictures up eventually.

It was typical. Busy, Test was peaked with a bunch of the soft blow-sand at the top and there were white hints of snow burried under the wet sand poking through in a few spots yet.
The parking lot filled up to the point where they have to open up the voucher center for stand-by until more parking spots opened up.
Great shake-down run for the new axles and suspention set-up for this year.
It rained from about 11AM until just before 4 and then the sun can out just as we were pulluing out of the parking lot. Figures.......

Here are my poser shots. I wasn't about to take my camera out to get action shots with all that sand blowing around.






Some snow buried under the sand, pretty cool to see in a 70 degree day.




His gas tank fell out when he jumped it. This was taken after he had used ratchet straps to get the jeep back to his truck/trailer because everything was still hooked up.
