Beverly Dunes Clean Up and Camp Out

Report & photos by Clay Graham – Selah Sweets / Eastern Washington Tourism

Around 5:30 PM Friday, November 2nd, 2018, my sons, Doc and Odo and I headed out from the Eastern Washington Adventures Club House in Selah toward Beverly Dunes to set up camp for the annual clean-up.

Once at Beverly Dunes we set up camp with TJ40. We used the trucks with campers as a wind block and put up a pop-up between them for shelter. We then had dinner around the propane campfire in the pop-up since it was breezy out.

Saturday morning more Eastern Washington Adventures Club members and volunteers from a few PNW4WDA Clubs showed up help. Stephanie from the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) showed up around 9:30 AM so people could signed in and get some tools for the clean up.

Most of the main work was in the campground cleaned out the fire pits and picked up trash.

After the clean up some headed home and the rest of us went and played in the dunes for a few hours. The ORVs left were Foxracer’s Subaru Outback, TJ40’s Yamaha YXZ, and my Jeep JKU.

Sunday morning we woke up to a blue sky. About the time we decided to pack up, the wind started blowing hard.

Around noon we headed home. Reece followed me in his truck. Crossing the Columbia River on I90 was scary. The wind was blowing so hard, it felt like my truck with camper were going to blow over. We stopped in Vantage to top off the fuel tanks since I used a lot of fuel fighting the wind.

We headed up the the Old Vantage Highway toward Ellensburg with one stop along the way. It was slow going with the hill and wind blowing against us. The wind died down some by the time we got to the Yakima River Canyon.

This was a very fun weekend thanks to all that came.

2018 Slab ORV Area Clean Up
Report and photos by Clay Graham / Selah Sweets/Eastern Washington Adventures.

On Saturday March 17th, 2018 volunteers met up at the Slab ORV Area near Buena Washington around 10 AM for the annual Slab Clean-up hosted by the Yakima Valley Dust Dodgers & Eastern Washington Adventures.

The volunteers spread out over the area picking up trash along the way.

We would like to thank all the people that came out to help. Thank you to the Dust Dodgers for taking care of the dump fee.

A note from the President of the Yakima Valley Dust Dodgers:
Tim Hammermeister – Thanks for the support, guys and gals! We hauled out about 2300 lbs of trash and several tires.
