We went up last year on opening week end and it was funkey. We were getting stuck in snow that had sand on top of it.

Definatly a differant 4x4 experience.

There is still snow along all the roads out there. Just took the boy for a ride in the truck out to the lake and the sleepy town is still sleepy. They have plowed the banks back and opened up all the parking areas though. My guess is bring some cold weather gear cause the wind will suck this weekend. Im just guessing though.

Maybe, but it will be a backseat in a TJ. Heh!
I know for certain I will be at the Dunes, hardtop on, Saturday. Channel 4 on the CB.
As for Sunday, I am not sure. Might just fart around on some unmaintained roads I know of. :)
