A snowy time at Juniper Dunes

Discussion in 'Trail Reports' started by Hodakaguy, Nov 19, 2011.

  1. Had a Breakfast meet/ride today. We grouped up at Uncle Sam's Saloon in Kennewick, had a great breakfast and headed out in the snow to Juniper Dunes for some great riding :thumb:

    Perry and Alan had the kids sized chicken fried steak :)

    It was lightly snowing when we unloaded the bikes and headed into the dunes.

    Tanner had a little issue coming down a sand hill....the tumbleweeds at the bottom were a little deeper than expected!

    We all stopped to group back up. Mamacone and YamWOW! was back behind us some where. YamWOW! went cruising by the group as we sat there, he didn't see us as he was concentrating on getting back to the truck. I left the group to catch up with him. Why was he concentrating on getting back to the truck you say? Well.....

    YamWOW! Misjudged his fuel supply a tad and was trying to make it back before he ran out completely.....to late. Luckily we had a water bottle so we could empty it out and transfer some fuel from my bike to his bike.

    While we were transferring the fuel the rest of the group pass by us a couple dunes over, they were heading back to the trucks. The snow was coming down hard as YamWOW! and I headed off to the trucks ourselves.

    Upon arriving at the trucks we all realized that Mamacone was missing in action, both groups had assumed he was with the other group :baldy: . A rescue party was quickly formed and just before they headed out Alan called my phone and said he wasn't sure where he was and he was running out of fuel :Doah: . We weren't sure where he was either but he wasn't hurt so Novacaine and Andy headed out to catch up with Alan.

    Took this shot of Novacaine's bike before he headed back out in the search party.

    We waited while they located Alan, time to load up the bikes and get warmed up. :thumb:

    Pretty soon we got the call that Alan had been found and they were on the way back to the trucks :bananna:

    Here they come!

    That looks like a good time!
    Cold?
    I am not a huge fan of dunes riding, but Juniper is more desert stuff.
    I really like riding there!!!
     
  4. I'm not a huge dune fan either...I hate the clean up on the bike afterwards, takes forever to get the sand off everything! I much prefer desert riding as well :)
