I can be there. Aiming for 8am to be safe. Would I be able to get a sticker and flag?

Sorry, don't got any personal info on that, I had my setup from years past, and not in Florence. Refer to the first post for more info?

Wanted to say a sorry for disappearing on everyone Saturday afternoon and evening. I got hit with sudden onset stomach flu/food poisoning..? It was not a good scene in my hotel room all night last night. Didn't get any sleep and then had a 9.5 hour drive back to Boise. The drive was brutal on no food, no sleep and badly dehydrated, but I made it home safe.

See you all next year.

You didn't happen to eat at the Zebra Bar in old town Florence did you? My wife and I suffered the exact same thing after eating lunch there Thursday. It was a terrible night for the both of us to say the least. Not fun.

The dunes were great though, once we recovered!

Nope. I also ate nothing suspicious, like raw oysters, etc. It's going on about 30 hours since it started and it hasn't got much better. :cowfrown:

That sounds brutal, hope you feel better soon. Glad you made it home safely.

Curious on how this trip would be during the summer with more of the dunes dried out...
Me too. Your aerial shot shows the treacherous nature of the wet sand. Where the rigs are stuck it looks dry, and then people are parked where it is wet with no problem.

Nice meeting you there.

If you both ate at the same place, someone should contact the county health department and make a report.

Summer is a bad idea for this run. Problem is the Quads and motorcycles running all over the place in every direction. They tend to hate the large rigs on the sand and they are hard to see and keep track of when driving around in a large group of FJ's

As I ride, limited to 30 mph, down a smooth path of crumbled stone and tar, a bland silver FJ on road tires passes by without even noticing my existence, I come to the slightly depressing realization that the 51 week itch has taken a strong hold of me once again.

Thank you to all who put the effort into making this happen every year. Thank you to all the saviors coming to the rescue of those in need without hesitation. Even though I can't remember more than a few names, I see all of you as my close friends, both those that I have meet in the years past and the new friends from this year. Already can't wait for next year.

In the gorge on the way there I was against the wind getting 13mpgs, and on the way back i was with the wind getting 24. Made it from portland to tri cities on a hair more than a half tank!

This is a good time to break out the grease gun, and hit all your zerks after running through the water like we all did. I know I have neglected this in the past.
