Hartley Springs buggy trip

We finally got to make the trip up to Hartely Springs thanks to our new to us motorhome.

Driving there everything was great. Ran the a/c and the crock pot (got there a little earlier than expected so had to hold off on dinner for a bit). We stopped off at the rest area to fill up with water.

Followed the limited directions we had but made it into the campground area, just happened to run into Bryce (that we camp with) and he lead us back to where our group was. Brooke, Janice & Andrew, Nick & Lauren and Reese were already there. Picked out a spot, parked & started unloading. My mom & dad and Bob & Lola showed up later that day.

We went on a quick buggy run to the June lake / mono lake lookout. My buggy was running pretty rough, possibly from the high altitude.

Looks like a nice place wish I knew where it is. I guess I'm in the minority because I don't know where it is, maybe I'll stumble onto it someday, I don't think it's in Wisconsin as I haven't seen any trees like that. Have a good time. Jim

The weather was pretty doggone good. One day was a bit warm (had to start the genny & put on the a/c) and at one time it looked like we were gonna get a little storm, but it passed by. We had a full moon during this trip as well which was great for getting from the firepit to the motorhome without a flashlight! lol

Kat I was just in northern California for a month. it is beautiful. I just wanted to ask you about your 3rd picture down in your 2nd set you posted, that road with the cliff....did you take your motorhome up it? I went up a road kinda like it and those kind of roads scare me soooo bad.

Nope, that was a buggy run. That would be scary as all heck in the motorhome, especially since at one point I had to go off the road & find my way back down the hill to get a running start! The motorhome never would have made that! lol

ok, so i'm not alone in my fear My hubby thinks i panic to easy...but the cliff is always on MY side! i get so scared that i would rather get out and walk up the mountain. LOL

Hope you had a great time!! Looks super fun. i stayed in the mountains for a month and got to ride a quad. I made the mistake on my 1st run of wearing flip flops...I couldn't shift gears, I had to reach down with my hand to shift. I could down shift though..

Thats why I like buggies... I can wear my flip flops & drive! Glad you had fun. Maybe try to take a nap when the cliffs are getting to you?

My sons birthday was Wednesday and everybody went to town to buy him presents, it was so sweet & it made his day so special.



The kids wanted to do something for him too so they dug him a hole for him to ride through and he was doing jumps off the piled up dirt that was dug out of the hole.



This is Dave & I on one of the runs. We're such dorks, we're both smiling under our bandanas!



We had to drive across a stream on a run & since Dave was riding in my dads buggy he was able to get this pic of me crossing it.



This is a crater with water in it that we hiked up to.



I don't know how he can fall asleep with how loud my engine is but he usually gets in at least 1 or 2 buggy naps per camping trip.



This is our buggy group.



And this is what we'd like to call a redneck jack!
