Went to little Sahara in Oklahoma last weekend. My buddy brought the rzr and the Suzuki. Me, I stayed with my boy “Bruiser.”
There’s something to be said for loyalty. He and I have crossed “creeks” that had the exhaust underwater, we’ve been on a highway or two so he could stretch his arms (A arms), and we’ve made to and back from that Oklahoma sandbox 7-8 times.
I’d like to thank JOGACA for shocks that made it possible for me to enjoy all 3 days, I’d like to thank my liver for hanging in there, and my common sense for making more than a couple cameo apearences.

Yessir, it’s different every time/year too. Jumps I’ve marked on my gps one year have been totally gone the next. Some years the dunes are considerably taller than other years, depending on which direction the wind primarily blew from.
I’ll always be primarily a “tree dodger” but there’s something about that damn sand

Never had the opportunity to ride in sand. I suppose you have to have the paddle tires right?

Are some of the dunes hard to climb like a steep hill?

My first time in a sandbox was 2017. Ive always loved riding but never wanted to drive that far for a weekend ride. My buddy was in a rough patch so we went just to try to get his mind in a better place. It was so AWESOME, now we are always trying to make time to go back. Definitely put a big sandbox on your bucket list, and check it off ASAP.

Hard to climb? Not on a raptor...

What 4stroker said.
Yes I’d advice paddle tires. You could ride with your regular tires and low tire pressure but it’s not the same

You need to put some curves thru the trees.
