Dune buggy rides in Oregon
May 11, 2009

The most fun the two RV Gypsies have had while traveling to Alaska - so far, at least. They had so much fun that they did it again the next day.

The two RV Gypsies took a fun filled scenic dune buggy ride over glistening valleys, vast hills, and desert atmosphere - which added up to one of the most fascinating sights one might ever see. The driver, Wayne, drove up, down and sideways on dunes that were about 70 feet or more in height.

The driver, Wayne, stopped to take a photo - then he drove SIDEWAYS on the sand dune to the left of the water shown below.

This is "Living on the edge" - all dunes are much bigger and steeper than shown in the photos. Wayne did some real radical driving as requested by the two RV Gypsies.

Just an inkling of the sand that got blown all over Karen Duquette and her seat. There were times when a big burst of sand just came pounding into her face. Thank goodness for the goggles.

The two RV Gypsies had so much fun yesterday, so they returned for another day of riding the dune buggy on the sand dunes. It was a rainy day, and they almost canceled, but decided to go anyway, so they dressed for the wet weather and bundled up, and guess what - they did not have any rain during their dune buggy ride, but it did rain again later that day, on and off.

This time, Wayne decided to drive the dune buggy to the Pacific Ocean. It wasn't as fast or exciting as the day before, but still a lot of fun.
