I dont know if it was legal, but it was done in the seventies long before I could drive. If I felt like arguing I could dig through family pictures, but I dont care enough. Im not talking about getting shit faced at camp,no one in my family drank.

Drinking and stealing drift wood are both illigal in the dunes to this day, but I still see it happening every time I go there.

I remember the dunes back then. You could drive out about 300' to a sand bar if your truck was big enough and you knew where to go. Bon fires,camping, beer, and traffic going in all directions. It was crazy.
People would water ski being pulled by a truck on the beach.

I am 29 (with 14 years experience) and have been wheeling on and off for 25 years.
The first vehicle I offroaded in was a '75 Monte Carlo. Not your ideal offroad rig but it was still a blast!

I'm 22 and there's pictures of me as a baby sitting in our dune buggy. I started sand drag racing at 7 so its kinda off road. But I bought my blazer when I was 17 as my first car. I buried it the first week I owned it (first hole too ) and 3 years later I hacked off the front end.

So 5 years in a truck, 2 years of serious wheeling, and 22 years in a dune buggy!

I think there are photos of me in a Subaru wagon at the sand dunes as a baby.
