Dune Fest Activities

They had all kinds of activities for the kids. Here there were about 100 kids digging in the sand for prizes. I think they won a game. Too crazy!!Olivia and Ruben entered a relay race, one parent, one kid. She was eliminated after the second round. They had to race around the barrels. Olivia was good at it but her quad wasn't fast enough.
Our friend James had to race with both of his boys. Austin 9 and George 8. What a work-out!!!
The boys got 1st and 3rd. George won a trphy and a pocket quad.

For any of you quad enthusiasts, Maggie, myself and James are in the November issue of Dirt Wheels magazine page 130.

All in all, we had a BLAST!!! We now know what to do next year!!!!

Dune Fest

In early August, we took a trip to Dune Fest in Winchester Bay Oregon. We were supposed to go to Pismo but the Friday before we left, I got a call from the lady in charge of the event and she said they had room for us. There were about 15,000 people. Lots of quads!!!

On the way up there, we stopped in Medford to visit with my Aunt Vicki and spend the night. Thanks Aunt Vicki!!! It was nice because it cut the 10 hour drive in half. Ruben and I love Medford. Retirement??? Maybe....
At Dune Fest we stayed in a parking lot next to the Bay. Not the greatest location because we were a mile or so from the dunes. We took what we could get and had a gorgeous view! They even had a lane for quads, that's how big this event is!!!
We were literally in a parking lot. There were 12 of us in all and we made the best of it!

The kids played next to the water looking for crabs. We got to watch some locals with their traps and got to see one close up.

It has been a long time since I have posted anything. I have not been able to post anything in almost 2 months!!! I still can't add pictures which there are a lot of. I am so frustrated and am on my way to the library to check out the book Blogging for Dummies!!!! Maybe I can figure it out!!! Stay tuned and check back in a couple of days!!!
