I am looking at organising some accommodations for the Spring trip to the dunes I have come come up with some dates based around leaving here Friday night coming home Sunday night and staying if possible inhoneyman St park.We can ride straight from the campsite out onto the sand at honeyman that will save loading and unloading,I have ridden this area before and highly recommend a trip down.

these are the dates Feb 25th-27th

March 4th-6th

March 11th-13th

I know these dates are early in the year but the dunes and particularly this campsite are popular,I think a Yurt would be favorite if available,as soon as I know the dates I will get on the phone.

Thanks for the post / plan Andrew.

The annual mud-fest at Herrling is slated for March 6th I believe, so perhaps we should avoid that weekend, but each of the three weekends you offer are okay by me.

I'm shopping for a sand paddle right now.

Sharing a yurt with you & Bill? Egads!

Make sure your chain is good as well. It'll be shagged aftera weekend ofsand.

What's the beach like - Hard packed? Remember the final scene in "On any Sunday" ........Nirvana :hb:Biking is good, blasting down a beach is the best.

A week riding in Vegas and the chain was still ok. Cleaned with kerosene at the end of each day. Kersosene has a small amount of lubricant in it.

Sound Limits in the Dunes National Recreation Area


[/align]
What’s the sound limit at the Oregon Dunes?
Vehicles operating at the Oregon Dunes NRA must be 93dB or less.


Have Your Vehicle Checked!
You can request a sound test before riding, call ahead to schedule an appointment with the Oregon Dunes Sound Crew.

The Sound Test…
As defined by state and federal law, vehicle sound is measured by a decibel meter 20 inches and 45 degrees for the exhaust outlet. ATVs and motorcycles are tested at 50% of the manufacture’s RPM recommendation. Class II vehicles are tested at 75% of the engine’s maximum RPM.

Decibel outputs based in 2001 data collected during monitoring and law enforcement stops.


What Works...
Stock is (almost) always best! (Honda 250R) We recommend that you operate with your vehicle’s stock pipe and muffler and maintain it in good working condition. Regardless of what you purchase for your ATV, you are still responsible for ensuring that it meets the requirements of the law. Not all mufflers will work the same on all OHV’s. Since results vary with modifications, along with vehicle care and maintenance, we cannot guarantee that these mufflers will work on your particular ATV

You bringing your own broom and dustpan?:p

btw. At the risk of sounding semi-organized, maybe we should make up a list of stuff we should bring instead of having 7 or 8 huge coolers there?

So, I can bring my fairly large cooler. Do we need 1 more? I can also bring some cut up rags and a litre of kerosene. This works great after each day for cleaning the sand out of your chain. I assume everyone is bringing and extra tube or 2? Tire irons. Anyone got one really good set instead of us all bringing tire irons? Or do we have to borrow John J's skookum titanium ones?:p Electric tire pump? Bring mine or someone else going to bring theirs? WD-40 or some other lube for changing tires? Hand cleaner? I've got a litre size Fast Orange. EARPLUGS are a must to help muffle the snoring!!!!!!!!


Inflatable dolls? Mark, you bringing yours?

I would like to call a meeting at"Jimmy macs" on Wednesday evening to finalise the trip?

BTW,as to 93db I took a quiet core for my pipe with me last time I went down, then took it out when I saw/heard what everyone else was running.!I guess we shouldtake the appropriate precautions.!
