Maybe Glamis is trying to tell me something
Well, I think this is the 5th year in a row that I have gone to Glamis and met up with guys I met through this forum yesterday, February 13, 2015. I met up with a bunch of guys in wash 15 and during the heat of the day it probably was around 85 degrees. We were still waiting for people to come in, but I went for a run over to Olds and then to the drags and then back to Wash 15. I had some temp issues, but I've had them under control going to a triple pass stock radiator and adding an oil cooler. My temps during my run never got over 215 and mainly stayed at about 210 running a modest pace through the dunes. However, I did notice that my radiator overflow bottle had filled up, but the temps mainly stayed at 210, but cooled down when I just cruised home via sand highway. Now cruising down sand highway, I noticed that my rear end was a bucking bronco all the way back to camp. Once at camp, I noticed that both of my rear shocks had mostly likely blown seals because both springs and suspension arms were covered in oil and sand. So I decided to stop driving it and shut it down for the night. Here is a shot of slice of paradise.
Spent the night in the tent and slept just okay. It seems like Mexican Polka music and tuba until about 3am, are not exactly conducive to a good nights sleep. I had planned to stay until Sunday night, but I decided that just hanging out, not driving my Teryx and another night in the tent wasn't going to workout so I came home. It was good to see Marty(Desertdog615), Marcelo (5150), Josh (Ali Baba) and a couple of others. I was sorry to miss Aaron and Jason (DaHarp). I'm going to have to revisit my next Glamis plans.
