I do not think I will be traveling to the Sand Dunes with my brother anymore (he actually just passed away this past September 2008 so I won't be able to travel with him at all). He is very critical on how to drive my Jeep and it is annoying. Other than that I had fun even though I did not go up the huge hills did the small ones and drove in some mud. There were lots of people out there it was not packed full of people at the time which was good. Tons of Jeeps and Dune Buggies of course which are the two perfect vehicles to have out there. If you get stuck on top of the hill do not worry someone there will pull you out and you go backwards down the hill which is fun. You can not go sideways or else you will flip your vehicle and that will not be fun. I just wished that my cousin Jay could have come with his Jeep and that would have been even more fun. Next time I will go with some new friends hopefully within the next year or so I hope. If it is a really hot and sunny day and no clouds in the sky it would be a good idea to take the windows and top of your Jeep that would be much more fun. Even though that would mean way more sand in your vehicle but that would be ok since you are out there to have loads of fun with everyone else that is out there as well.
