Pismo/Oceano SVRA

Well, Debbie and I just got home from our 2.5 day trip to Pismo beach. I had Thursday and Friday off so we left Wednesday afternoon. Headed up to Port Hueneme and stayed at the Navy Lodge on base there on Wednesday night.

Next morning we headed up to the beach with most of the drive behind us and with both of us well rested.

Got to the park about 11:30 and spent the rest of the day playing in the dunes and hanging out on the beach. Great area and thankfully we beat the crowd that began showing up the next afternoon. Headed back to Vandenberg AFB where we stayed in the AF lodge Thur/Fri night. Vandenberg is down the road about 30-35 minutes from Pismo and it cost us a whopping $74 bucks to stay there 2 nights. Sadly, the AFB accommodations were better than the Navy ones. I guess those "sensitive" types need better care and feeding.

Friday morning we got off to an early start and hit the dunes about 0930. At times, it seemed we had the entire area to ourselves and I got a chance to run a few of the larger hills that were pretty packed the afternoon before.

Leave it to say, we had a blast and we didn't break anything (not that I didn't try a couple times. Anyone wanting info on the park can find it here: Oceano Dunes SVRA

Here are a few photos for now and I'll post up a video or two later after I edit them.

Ah, the beach:

The guys here drive around with air compressors and charge a dollar a tire to fill up. How much to let air OUT?

After 8 hours in the dunes and a couple on the beach, it's time to NOT pay a buck to air up:

Wow, Larry! That was a great summary of your B-day/4th of July trip! I'm glad you didn't tell them that we hopped over the "boundary fence" so I could give you your realBirthday present. You are so discreet!

Sweetheart, I had a fantastic time and I, so, enjoyed your company and your friendship! It was a total blast. Let's buy us a beach house and do that more often!

Everyone, you've got to go there. Rock crawlin' is great, but switching it to the sand occasionally is alot of fun!!!

Uhhh Hemmm.

For the record, the humans jumped the fence, not the jeep.

Awesome pic Distorted! I had a 66 year old school teacher stop and ask me some pointed questions about that flag yesterday. She's straight now!

No, but I nearly whoops it in the back. The fence had a sand rail trail with a berm leading down to it so I decided to do a controlled fall onto the trail. Well, it all went exactly as planned EXCEPT that I pulled down about 20 yards of sand and put it on top of the foot of REALLY soft sand at the bottom.

Thank you lockers! I seriously doubt the fence posts would have held up as winching points

Looks like you guys had fun Larry. Wish I could have met you two over there. I had to finish moving my brother-in-law into his new house. NOT so fun............... family can be a pain in the ass some times. Oh and happy birthday.
