Pismo Beach Off Road Trip - Heavy Metal Weekend

Last September we made our second annual trip to the Oceano Sand Dunes (formerly known as Pismo Sand Dunes, but we still refer to the area as Pismo) for a weekend of relaxation and fun, on the beach and in the sun. It's the best time of the year at the dunes. Summer has ended, the large crowds of tourists have returned to school and to work, and the weather is still sunny and warm. The couple months right after summer are absolutely the nicest times of the year at Pismo.

During the second weekend in September we invite all our friends (including you next year!) to come on out to the Central Coast. The only entrance fee is at the gate of the sand dunes ($5 per day or $10 for the night), and we think you should shell out the dough and join us at 2009's Heavy Metal Weekend in Pismo.

The past two years have been nothing official, and just really a get-together of enthusiasts, but next fall we're gonna hit up the park for some permits. If we can make it official, we think we could really throw a fun little shindig. We were thinking we could set up a band on the beach, get some food and great barbeque out there for you to munch on, and maybe even get some really cool prizes we can giveaway to anyone who wants to show up.

So stay tuned, as we'll be sure to keep you updated as 2009's Heavy Metal Weekend gets closer.
