I have been in contact with a few members attending the Newport pre-rally who are interested in an Off-Road day. Oregon Dunes ORV area is located 50 miles south of our rally site. Oregon Dunes is one of the premier sites in the country. I have been there numerous times. Anyone with a 4-wheel drive vehicle can access the dunes and have a ball! If you want to go, you need to pay a day use fee and have a safety pole & flag attached to your vehicle. These requirements can be arranged in advance.

I would like to take a poll of those planning to attend the pre-rally.

We have a go Houston! Gale Johnson has tentatively set Saturday as our trip date.

If you ever thought about trying your vehicle in the sand this is your chance. I have been off-road in the Oregon dunes for years; anyone with a four-wheel drive vehicle can have a great time in the sand if you lower your tire pressure to less than ten pounds! I run 3-4 psi in my tires and have never broken a tire bead! You do have to use caution in the dunes. Because of the winds in the Florence area, the dunes are constantly drifting and will have sharp drop-offs on the leeward side. I will have a safety meeting before we make the trip.

Oregon Dunes South Jetty to Siltcoos area is entered from a staging point 2 miles south of the junction of highway 101 and 126 (Florence OR.)Oregon Dunes

You will need to meet a few state requirements to access the dunes.

1. You will need a class two Oregon ORV permit (Sticker).

2. You will need this safety equipment on your vehicle.

The safety equipment is basic and the permits are reasonable and can be purchased in advance. You will also need to pay a day use fee when entering the park.
The safety flag will need to be mounted securely to your vehicle (the most difficult part). I suggest the front or rear bumper.
I would recommend you purchase a good low-pressure (under 20-psi) tire gauge, I bought mine at NAPA for $10. Bring a nylon yank strap (no metal hooks) and if you have a portable air compressor it would be nice but not mandatory. A few of us already have them, we will share, and town is only two miles away.

Post any additional questions you may have.

Danny
