It's a pity I have to do the straw badge before I can even attempt the sand badge!

I think the only way to get the sand badge is to go to Wheaton Labs for a SKIP event and complete it out there.  They host BB20 events every once in a while where anyone who's completed 20 BBs can come out for free for the week to work on more BBs.
