Both Dale and I grew up cruising the sands of Pismo beach. Most kids from the San Joaquin valley did. But for utter and complete craziness, go on the Fourth of July when just 2 miles off the beach the temperature is in the mid 80's.
The shots below are of the less crowded sections of the beach. It was packed with vehicles of every size, shape, colour and wheel count as far as the eye could see for a few miles in either direction
