We planned to travel to the Southern Oregon Coast for Spring Break, intending to include a couple Dune Buggy experiences. As it turned out, having to postpone it until June was a blessing! March is not the best time to bug out to the sand dunes on the coast of Oregon. Even in June, wear a jacket. While it reached 93 degrees on the drive down, June 23, 2020 (and was similarly hot all week in Metro Portland), temperatures at the coast were in the high 60s and breezy, especially in an open vehicle (dune buggy) right off the ocean. And the sand is softer in June than in March.
Here are a couple more great (5 min) videos done by John Williams and the USFS, Accessible Adventures about the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area, this area of the coast, and Siuslaw National Forest:

I've been in a wheelchair for 30+ years. It poses some challenges for traveling. Maybe others can benefit from my experiences.
