I've attended the wind blown dunes and extensive beaches of Pismo Beach several times. Each time I go, I am amazed at the natural wonder of this 8 mile long beach that extends inland for another mile or more. I wish I was a “Dunite” a someone who spends their time wondering the dunes and contemplating life and spirituality, but honestly, I just want to rip these puppies down with 400cc's of 4 wheeled power underneath me. Regardless, I feel the presence of the of the spirituality in those Dunes, especially when I yelling out to God to save my butt as I fly over another dune expecting to die.
While we are out here riding our gas powered earth crushers, this area has not always been inhabited by beer drinking, beach camping gear heads. Apparently this beach has been occupied by Indians during the pre-history of California. According to Wikipedia, the Indians called area Pismu which was their word for tar that they used for their seagoing canoes. Years later when the white folk took over, artists, nudists and spiritualists camped in the dunes and said that the dunes brought about their creativity and inner peace. Well, those dreams are shattered.
Pismo is currently a recreational area, one of a few in california where you can drive your cars, RV's, 4x4's and ATV's on the sand in true American style. When we were there this place was packed with campers, RV's and people just looking to have a good time with their petro fueled sandrails, ATV's and other wheeled vehicles cutting their way through the sand at high speed.
Our little group are a bunch of part timers or beginners, but that didn’t stop us from having major amounts of fun out there in those ancient dunes where many people have found their creative muse wandering around. We found some fun, but maybe we where going to fast to pick up any of those creative spirits. Who knows, hundreds of years from now, maybe those spirits will have this place all to themselves again, but for now we'll rip these puppies down!
