Awesome place for trucking. I didn't have mine up there, but the town and dunes are totally full of cool trucks and every kind of 4X4 you can imagine. I rented a dune duggie for a few hours and had a total blast! Highly recommend the area. Plenty of thing to do for the hole family.
There is a little town about 10 or 15 minutes north full of girly type shops that should keep her happy for a while. Plus there is a real cool lighthouse you could take a sunset walk by and score some points.
I need to practice posting pictures on this forum and so following are just a couple:
yeah there isnt a lot of space for pics...but man...I really wanna get out to the dunes.....I was watching some video of some guys doin a hill climb there...and over in the corner of the screen you see this little subaru make it up to the top with no problem...Made my miss my Legacy.
I went to Silver Lake Dunes back in 1997 with my Cousin, we towed 2 sand rails out there with his dually Chevy, the truck got stuck while we were unloading the rails and stayed stuck for 3 days while we played. It took 5 hours of digging, a 12500lb winch, a sand anchor, and 2 sand jacks to get it out but we had a blast.
Dont know if they still let ya camp out in designated areas of the dunes but back then they did.
A great place, I'd like to go back someday.
