MAN what a great weekend is all i can say.

Got to dumont first thing friday am trying to play catchup to skinner and ninjagreengirl as they had about a 45 min head start on me. Rolled into dumont about 730ish and just rolling up to the wet sand and cool air was just awesome! So relaxing. The wind was nice and calm all day just enough breeze to kick the dust away.

Got a couple good runs in thru the weekend on the 500 and after some carb adjustment hey it ran lol. Rode the piss outta the XR400 and that thing fly's pretty well.. found one of those nice lofty jumps where you dont get much air but fly a ways out and it was real stable surprisingly.

Petes new car.. all i can say is :ahhhhh: :ahhhhh: bad mufhuggan :booty: :booty: ....

Camp was a bit smaller this weekend but it was campin with some great peeps, great company and great people in camp all weekend. Even ran into a glamisdunes.com member that i wasnt expecting to see out there.. It was good seeing an ol friend again :D

Poker run was a huge sucess this year. There was no issues this year as compared to last year. There were no lines at the check points everyone was in and out in a hurry.. we all thought things went a little too smooth and a little too fast lol. IT was just a great turnout. I was manning the checkpoint on the south end of the dunes right at the closure steaks on top of the plataue. Awesome view Awesome Weather just plain great time up there.

Man i cant wait for the next trip.. mid week morning run anyone lol..
Raoul Duke: Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. A normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow. But he won't know what to make of your blinker signal that says you are about to turn right. This is to let him know you're pulling off for a proper place to talk. It will take him a moment to realize that he's about to make a 180 degree turn at speed, but you will be ready for it. Brace for the g's, and fast heel-toe work.

:ahhhhh:


Thanks!! And your welcome!! :ahhhhh:

Food drive was better then expected since it was a last minute add!

THANKS again to Chris aka: dunefaster for the donation of the helmet! It was a tie for who brought in the most items, so I had to tell both parties they could go get more if they wanted and I left it at that... both did!

Conratulations on winning the new helmet Justin and Julie, aka: Skinner and Ninjagreengirl! :booty:
They brought in 30 items and Jill and Charlie brought in 28!! :booty:

THANK YOU!!!!
To all who brought in even one can, box or container of food and a few non food items! All together there were over 150 items donated!!

We actually just got in so, pretty well pooped out! Only went on one ride yesturday, but it was a great ride, lost the group coming back, started to go over a tall razor and got blinded by the sun and a gust of wind kicked my contact off kilter.... so I didn't want to go over it blind, dropped out and caught up on the tail end of another little group. Didn't have a clue who they were, but they had a good line going, turned out to be the peeps Ynot was camping with!

Today, just wasn't feeling it... busted the bead on my tire, almost took a tumble down a pretty big hill, changed the tires out ( THANKS Justin and Julie for the borrow!), wasn't used to those paddles and back end was a little too squirrely for me, so I had to take it down a little, then lauched over a nice ten foot drop, then we stop for a photo shoot and I lost my contact to the sand gods... :headspin: :dope: I thought ok ok I get it I am done... I said see ya and headed to the flats and met up with everyone back at comp! Still a GREAT day, but just wasn't my day for riding. Kicked it at camp the rest of the day, slowly packing up.

It was just a great, peaceful weekend! Hanging out with some pretty darn cool peeps!!

Sat nights, Sandblast on the side of the hauler was awesome!! :headbang1: HEY! Joe was that your car?? Rewind.... YEP!!! :yiah:

Great meeting Skinner and Ninjagreengirl and Urkel and family!! :headspin:

Thanks for helping out at the registration booth Julie! :grin:

I am sure I will think of more later, there were some pretty good laughs!

Pics tomorrow... its time for :headspin:

What a GREAT weekend!

I can't thank everyone enough. I truly appreciate each and every person that came out to the poker run that participated, volunteered, and donated towards the event. Even though times are tough right now, the Dumont community still came through as always! It went very smooth this year and everyone we talked with really enjoyed it. I think that mystery spot was a kickass idea this year and really gave everyone an added bonus & challange.

The weather was very cooperative and the dunes were great. After the poker run we managed to get quite a few really sweet runs in. This weekend is exactly what I needed. I missed the rest of our usual crew as some of them coudn't make it out :( , but it was still a great weekend with great friends. :drunks: :ahhhhh:

Oh yeah...and the new car made me very happy this weekend. Absolutley flawless! :ahhhhh: :headbang1:

More to come later. I'm beat!

Awesome day trip! Got in a little later that i wanted but still donated

We went out to the checkpoints just for fun in the middle of our rides, the secret one was a way cool idea.

Found a cool little "track" with 3 hard razor turns and a big floater jump in the middle got a couple good motos in on that, until my buddys oil plug came out :ahhhhh: back to camp...

Cant fix it for we are just messin around camp takin pics, then the honda blows up...then my buddys kx kickstarter blew up and shot his case apart......

So the last 2 bikes went out for one last ride came back and then finally saw Pete and Anna cruisin by (fugures!!) BTW Pete that was me by the Maroon F350 in the white shirt waving at you like a tard :hatdance:

So all in all wasnt bad weekend for me any got some good runs in before all the carnage....

Wanted to meet up with pete so he could lead us on some more kickass runs :ahhhhh:

First of all I want to thank Pete and Anna for co-sponsoring this event! Couldn't have done it without your help and this site. Then a great big Thank You to the volunteers who hung out all day at the checkpoints, I got nothing but great reviews on everyone of you. I can't say how much it means to me to see people spend their dune time helping the cause. Then the people who spent what it takes to get to the dunes and then reached a little deeper to do the poker run. Thank you all and I hope you had fun. Lastly a thanks to all the vendors who donated stuff for the raffle, what started out with 4 prizes ended up being much more and thats all due to the vendors at Dumont so please support them along with Butch's speed shop, Red Art Inc. and Performance Rhino, They came through with some pretty expensive stuff and gift certificates and they deserve your support when you need parts etc.
The run was great this year and the mystery checkpoint was a great idea (thanks Anna) and we will have to work it into next years plans again.
I had a great weekend, got some nice dune runs in, sat at the campfire with old friends and got to spend time with my son in law, my grandson and the trunk monkey Thank you Walter for everything.

:ahhhhh:

Well, I rolled out solo on Thursday. Arrived about the same time as some of you. Pulled into the Valero to fuel up as 80grit was finishing up (didn't get to introduce myself), and pulled into the dunes just ahead of OGP ( i was the next camp over on Thu).

Went out for a ride on Thu afternoon. Soooo much virgin sand with nooobody else out there. Rest of the crew showed up about 11pm and we figured it was a good idea to start up the fire as it started raining :ahhhhh: . A few :ahhhhh: later and we are duning my buddy's tacoma. Of course we get it stuck in some soft stuff over by comp at about 2 am. :booty: By the time we got it out and back at camp it was all of 3 am.

Fri we rode until we couldn't move. Great weather all weekend.

Crew had to leave Sat morning, so we cruised around on my cousin's dmax to all the checkpoints and took a pic or two :headbang1: . Again, no time to stop and introduce myself. :booty:

Here is a couple from my cell phone, will post up rest later from home after work. Poker run looked like a blast! Def going again next year. Should meet a bunch of you at the regatta though...

his car is freakin awesome!! slides easy and is fun as hell sliding into a bowl and just blasting out of it!!
Raoul Duke: Few people understand the psychology of dealing with a highway traffic cop. A normal speeder will panic and immediately pull over to the side. This is wrong. It arouses contempt in the cop heart. Make the bastard chase you. He will follow. But he won't know what to make of your blinker signal that says you are about to turn right. This is to let him know you're pulling off for a proper place to talk. It will take him a moment to realize that he's about to make a 180 degree turn at speed, but you will be ready for it. Brace for the g's, and fast heel-toe work.

well here are a couple pics from the weekend

rolled in around 730 friday mornin like ISBB was sayin, he had claimed before we left that "he got dibs on the couch" he was right.
Posted Image



we got all set up, after a brief "this is the spot" discussion, and headed out to get some sand in our teeth.......after ISBB worked up quite a sweat tryin to start the 500.......he decided to take the xr instead. so off we went. the 500 finally came around after some carb tuning, got a couple shots of him flight testing it.

we went back to camp to get some lunch and wait for the "freak" and the "monkie" to arrive, and to see how long it would take from the truck into park, to the new toy going into 1st! (didnt take much time!)

gettin ready to head out for a run on friday sundown.
Posted Image




of course saturday was the poker run and it was great, Julie, Jodi and Terry were posted up at the registration booth, so after i made the run i headed back and hung out with them for a while. Didnt here any complaints ofr negative comments about anything, which was awesome! only the occasional "where the hell is the mystery spot!!!??" followed by a smile! so it seemed like everyone loved it. :headbang1: to Anna for the mystery checkpoint! it was a hit!

Jodi at registration tent saturday mornin.

this gentleman won a fabulous pink tank top, and apparently Anna had a little "captain in her"
