Re: Going to Florence Oregon Today For The Weekend

You'll like it lots bigger than sandlake, some open drag strip areas, and some cool tree shots trail rides and what not along the edges, there are some medium hills for dragging on and some pretty big bowls to blast around. LOTS of razorbacks so be carefull, but it would not be BS to say you could jump 40 or 50 times on different ones just heading one direction next to the drag strip area, we have formed up in a line and just hopped our way across . pretty cool if you are in front and stop to watch this procession of flying quads.

have fun but be safe the suckers will pull ya in and pop up out of nowhere

Perfect explanation cause I agree. I also have been there 3 times this season already lol. Great time this weekend the sand was perfect on Friday since the winds were 15mph freshn up that dry sand.

The sand at sand lake whooped up pretty good. Lots of rough riding even on the flats by the staging area. it must have been crazy packed for Memorial weekend.

Re: Going to Florence Oregon Today For The Weekend

The sand was pretty chopped up at Sand Lake over Memorial Day weekend. There were a lot of people there, but I've seen it worse in the past. This place is so small....it really sucks, but it is the closest sand to us in WA. These fuel prices are killing me!! $350 for diesel to pull the Weekend Warrior down and back, over $200 for gasoline to fill the onboard fuel station and generator. Won't be making as many trips this year, that's for sure.
