Great last weekend of the season. Damn flag. Hahaha
There's already a good crowd forming out here.
On vendor row we have:
Reyna's Carnival Eats
an ice guy
Another food vendor
And a couple more.
The dunes are already tracked up and those that are here are out enjoying it!!!
BLM has already been out working on the road.
Hell to the yeah! Summer is FINALLY FREAKING OVER!!!!
Out at the big beautiful sandbox for the first weekend of the season.
Things have changed quite a bit out here! As usual from season to season. But this year feels like our regular lines really shifted more than most seasons.
Of course there's the regular shelves, witch's eyes and drop offs that come with summer dune conditions. There's also some good smooth lines too.
We're laying down fresh tracks and there's some light traffic tracks from the light crowd that is out here this weekend.
The road coming in of course is a SOLID F rating. As more people start coming on off weekends again the debate will probably arise again, that if we have to start paying during September the BLM should at least grade thar road once a month and not just on holidays!
It's a beautiful start to the season so far!!
If you're out and you see us, stop and say HEY!! 😁

Drove in yesterday evening around 6pm.
The water is getting high over the concrete due to people blocking off a large pool right next to it so I'm gonna bring a shovel over later and fix it so it flows again and the road doesn't wash away.**
**I've been informed the BLM made the pool so I will leave it alone**
There are maybe 7 rigs out here total right now.
It's a beautiful day!! Maybe 6mph breeze, sunny, and nice at 9:30am.
Last night was extremely windy so the dunes look crazy sharp. Check out the pics!
I had jacked up my wrist last weekend. I made an attempt to ride, but was smart enough to know that I didn't have the strength in my right wrist to keep control of my X3, so I limped myself back to camp while everyone else went on.
I chilled, made myself a bloody mary and prepped lunch and dinner. First time doing a seafood boil! Turned out fantastic!
It was breezy and the dune conditions were pristine and fresh tracks being laid down in virgin sand. The dunes are on the move again. They are completely different from the last time we were out on MLK. Shelves and witches eyes, holes and ditches. Super sharp razor backs. Summer sand.
The W picked up later in the day and some stayed in camp playing cards and some said screw it were going out anyway.
The full moon and drifting sand made for an erie and beautiful scene last night, while taking the pups out for a before bed walk.
It's now morning and it hasn't stopped blowing... From my motorhome window it looks rippled and trackless and I can hear someone on a dirt bike enjoying a morning ride.
Its a beautiful slightly breezy Saturday morning. Up before the sunrise.
The W blew a little last night, making for smooth rippley dunes this morning.
Chilling in camp, breakfast and coffee done, getting a jump start on homework for next week, while I wait for the first ride of the day.
The sun is out in a beautiful blue sky.
First post and First trip to Dumont... Knocking it all out at once.
I want to give a huge shout out to everyone who has posted on this forum. I felt like I've been camping out there my whole life with the info I've been able to get from this forum.
With Ocotillo being closed I needed a new desert home. Never been much of a duner but I am a complete convert now. After moving to Vegas from SoCal several years ago I'm kicking myself for continually making the haul down south when I had this slice of heaven only 2 hours away.
Took the Wife and son out from Wed the 16th to the 20th. Few people out camping. Weather was absolutely beautiful. It being my first trip to Dumont I don't have much to compare to but coming from Johnson Valley and Ocotillo camping it was heaven. Woke up Thursday to some nice clouds which opened up to beautiful skies. A little breezy on Thursday but that was the only day worth noting the wind.
Sand was smooth as glass and provided for an amazing first experience. Can't wait to get back out in a couple of weeks.
I look forward to many many many more trips in the near future.
Sorry no riding pics though... I couldn't think about anything besides how much fun I was having.
