No none of us have ever been, actually most of us are buying paddles and wheels just for this trip. I think the drive is along the lines of 9 hours.
Like I said I have never purchased from Jim's but he has quite a following on Planet Sand and with the LS, OK crowd...worth a try because shipping these days is crazy!Fullerton San Tires - (714) 898-2049 talk to joe .......
Montana, try this thread out as a starter...IMO Geckos are the worst tire you can purchase...
Clickity, click, click ME!
To add to what has been stated in that thread if you are looking for a super low cost venture you might check into AMS Sand Snake. I have talked with them several times and they seem to be super nice folks to deal with. The tires are very inexpensive and relatively light for molded tires.
Just give me some freakin paddles---very cost minded:
AMS Sand Snake
AMS Diamond Trak
You would also do some good to check into the Skat Trak Gliders...I have been hearing good things but I have no personal experience with them. NOTE: I have never ran the AMS sand snakes nor Sidewinders. I have seen them in action and for what they are they perform well so I feel confident in recommending them as a low cost solution.
If you are not into dumping loads into dune tires do not sweat it...not everyone is a dune freak and not everyone gets the opportunity to dune as often so the $$ investment may not pay out for you...almost any paddle is better then none...almost!
Hmmm, I have a set of 21X12X8 6-paddle Extremes double buff on Douglas .125 (7" wide) wheels that I offered to let you run the last trip we met up at LS??? Hmm, let me see, what did you say, naahh, thanks though! :smiley_1poke:LS Oklahoma has paved roads in the camp ground so If I were to pick an all round tire to try next, it would be a 21x11x8 6-paddle Extreme Hauler triple buff.

ratherBridin brought this gathering up in the Rec Riding forum in an old thread and I suggested moving it to the dune riding section and titling it so we could all track it easier...
