I actually love the spot. We had a wide spot where we could unload the quads and then I parked the trailer (only took 3 tries!:B ) The spot is relatively private compared to some of the others and it is so wide, we had both pickups side by side next to the trailer. Since I always unhook, it is no problem.
I had to drive back sunday due to work, but the boys are having a great time. They said the sun, sand, and having hookups are awesome. I love the fact that it is WAY cheaper than the KOA.
I can't wait to head back Wednesday
We had an easy trip to the dunes. We arrived at Riley Ranch and the weather is gorgeous. It was 64° when we got here. Clean living the trailer was level within five minutes. All three of my boys are here, my father and stepmom are coming, and we get to spend Thanksgiving with my aunt uncle and cousins. This is a thanksgiving for the record books
Oregon dunes! This is year 11 of Sandy Turkey for the kids and I (hoopsand is working overtime this year)
The weather looks great this year for a change - 50s and sunny! We have been camping and riding in torrential rain, incredible winds, and even snow one year. We are looking forward to some great riding conditions.
Nice! We had to add the holder about 9 months after we bought the hauler because the other was way in the back and got knocked off on a steep drive without us knowing. Our fix has lasted about 7 years now, but your solution is SAWEET. (In writing this, I just realized we bought the TH 8 years ago in January!)
Thanks for the video and pics! I'm going to see if they can put me in a longer spot but if they can't, it's okay. I unhook the trailer because we go visit family as well as ride over the weekend.
It looks like I will be taking the trailer down the weekend before and the big boys will be there all week (the lucky buggers are out of school all week!) That is so cool, because even though we'll take two vehicles down, I'll be able to zip down in the Mini on that Wednesday and not hassle with the trailer in the traffic (happy dance!)
We are in B-1. We'll have the two older boys (22 & 23) and maybe the 14 year old.
Dave and I are really looking forward to riding down there again!
I'm not the world's worst backer-inner, but it may take me a few tries, especially after battling the south I-5 mess for Thanksgiving. (we won't talk about the my cussing and backing and cussing and backing and....at the KOA the last time at o dark thirty after driving for 10 hours for a 6 hour trip. I can't believe how many dirty looks I got the next day:o )
My hubby has a backpack GPS (he reminded me to set it right when we hit the sand dunes, NOT at our campsite :S )
I don't need stinking GPS I said - I rode all over Glamis without it. He just rolled his eyes and told me that was before my "senior moments" kicked in. Dave is a funny fellow.
Anyway, some pics would be awesome, thank you.
Am heading there with the kids for the first time this Thanksgiving.
I've never checked it out and I will have to park the rig myself (back in) since hubby is driving down later. How tight is the road?
How is the dune access? Is it easy to find? Sometimes it has been a challenge to find the campground road (i.e. Honeyman)
Thank you in advance!
I have a 2006 Adrenaline 400DS (42 ft) and pull it with a 2006 F350 dually (started with a 1998 Chevy dually 454 gas - yikes!)
No real problems after I learned about tail swing courtesy of a gas station bollard and tail drag courtesy of a steep driveway.
I'm cautious about gas stations and all and careful about my site selection (just got back from a trip to "the mudhole" in Priest River, ID that was tight!
My DW had over $17,000 worth of root canals, crowns, caps, extractions, bone grafts, and implants done in Algodones. We used Dr. Carlos Rubio's group. It is one of the leading ones in Algodones and as such, it is just a little more expensive than some of the others. He is US trained and spends a lot of time lecturing at various dental colleges in Mexico and the US. Our estimate for having the work done here in the states was more than $50,000 and that was if they did not find "complications." As you know, there are ALWAYS complications! We were, have been, and still are, extremely pleased with the work done by Dr. Rubio and his staff. Everything was handled in his offices or right across the street. It was always very professional with no real language barriers. They did not accept credit cards but did take our check for almost all work done. We never had a moment when we didn't feel safe crossing the border or returning. We parked in the Indian run fenced lot for $5.00 for all day and walked the few blocks necessary to get to his office, which was new and very modern with all up to date equipment. One day, the day of the major surgery, I was instructed to drive across and park in his driveway since DW would be too woozy and weak to walk. I did this with no problem except that it took quite a long time to maneuver through the long line to cross back into the states. YMMV but we had a good experience and would not hesitate to do it again.
x 2 for Dr. Rubio and his staff. They have taken excellent care of my mother (66 yo), my stepmother (72) , and my father(70) over the last 6 years! I drive/escort. They were super professional and when I need more extensive care than my plan covers, I will go there as well.
