We go to florence mostly, coos and windy sometimes. Will do a day trip (7 hours of driving :thumbsdown: so not very often) or weekend trip to sandlake sometimes though

Just got back from Dunefest and had a blast! Ride Florence mostly, but I like Horsfall and spinreel, not a huge fan of windy bay

Florence and Winchester Bay... Heaven on earth. There as often as possible, though wasn't hardly at all this year... I'll be retiring there - who's with me ?

I was born and raised in Florence, started riding the dunes when there was one dirt parking area that would hold maybe 10 pickups, a lot has changed but it is still as much fun as ever. We ride Windy Bay and Spinreel a lot too.

How is Florence in April, weather wise? There is a group of people that want to head down then, I'm thinking of going too.

Hit or miss. March is a bear everytime I've been and April you usually get like what ? a 1-2 week window of pretty good riding I think ? If you only get the one trip in, I'd try and wait until later April-May, when the sand starts drying out and the wind can move it a bit to cover the tracks. It can get pretty rutted up without a little help from mother nature sometimes... I say Hell yeah ! Usually try to get my first coast trip in around April :thumb:

We do an annual week vacation at Coos Bay in mid May. Day trip it up to Winchester. Weather is pretty nice and warm with only the occasional sprinkle during the week. Sand is great. I love riding the dunes, wish it was closer.

Not worth makin a trip to Bigbull. If you're lookin Dunes worth riding - OR is the ticket. Moses Lake in Eastern Wa has some sand, don't know if it's considered dunes or not :lol: Never been personally. Where are you at ?

Hell yeah, I'll be postin up when I head down :rockit:

Try to get a few trips in spring-fall, but been hard last couple of years. Gonna try and make ths one count. :banana:

Yeah, if you're that close to Florence, then don't even think about comin up here for sand, nothing even remotely close to what you've got. You guys are LUCKY where you're at.

That is good to know, we went down today and gas is so much cheaper now that I will make a few more spur of the moment trips this winter.
