well, it sure looked like the FJCs were out en force and perhaps the most numerous out there. Bunch of kids, though... :)

Next up were the 80s. Many nice ones too... Oh yea, now we're talkin' serious iron... :D

Where were the 100s? :hmm:



Very good company as usual...

Back home, and finally have the sand out of my....er, shoes. It takes about 364 days to get the sand out of the truck, just in time for the next visit to Pismo. Have a boatload of GoPro video from the dunes to upload and edit...should have some cool snips in the next day or so. Fun as always, and definitely much more dry and warm as compared to the last few years. Different conditions in the dunes for sure.

:cheers:

Starting to work through all the pics I took this weekend, some of them are coming out really nice! Should have a link to my Flickr with them in the next few days.

Had a lot of fun learning how to drive in sand, the weather was perfect, and I met a lot of new people. I'm really happy I decided to seek out some help with the the broken shock mount I found when I got to the beach instead of turning back and heading home.

Really enjoyed my first time at Pismo, looking forward to next year! :D

Hey Darrell, awesome pics dude! Glad you were able to enjoy the weekend despite some setbacks. I noticed in the pics of your 60, your tires weren't aired down. And judging from the random tire tracks, the sand didn't seem terribly soft, but that was close to shore. Any need to actually air down? You stated you were learning to drive in the sand, it's great isn't it?!!!
I gotta go next year!!

DECALS

A few of you ordered decals from me and we didn't find each other at the event. I'll be mailing them out tomorrow.

If you wanted to buy an FJ40 or 60 decal on the beach but found me after I had already sold out, you can order them this week on my Etsy site. I have some vinyl left and am happy to make more.

Or you can PM me and we can arrange a non-Etsy purchase.

Thanks for coming out everyone! The weather was spectacular!!! :D

Yeah I did have them aired down to 20psi when I first went out in the dunes but i got stuck coming out of an area and had to air down to 15. Worked out fine for the rest of the trip, although I didn't go too far into the dunes. Im sitting here wishing I was floating and drifting aroung in the sands right now. :p

I need to take the truck back to the mechanic that swapped out the rotors for me last week cause he messed up the passenger side hub, and its stuck locked. Then I need to try replacing the spring and ball that keeps the transfer case engaged, it kept popping out of 4H into 2H while I was driving. I did get the shock mount welded up while I was down there though.

Learned a lot from a lot of ppl this weekend.

...got pulled over by the man (CHP) heading off the beach up Pier Ave on Sunday am. I didn't see him do anything wrong. Any follow-up story?
