  1. Today
  2. Tried, but I guess we need to get into the crane business before we have that kind of $$
  3. I am 100% for the off weekends... Can never get a good fast ride in on the crowded ones, since you feel like someone is always going to come over the dunes into your line. Im also not that much of a fan of having to check traffic from right to left as Im leaving camp like Im merging onto the freeway.
  4. Definitely an off weekend guy due to squids, dust, tracked out runs (especially after dunes get some moisture) and only a few side by sides with 1000w stereos at the gathering spots instead of dozens. (-=
  5. Both I like Halloween, veterans Weekend, thanksgiving, and New Years, but I’m down for off weekends also. oh and let’s not forget presidents Day
  6. What type of weekend do you usually prefer? Do you like the busy holidays because the people watching and craziness or the peace and quiet of an off weekend to enjoy the solitude and emptiness of the dunes? I'm curious what attracts everyone to either weekend. Are you an A type or B type? Or both? I personally love Halloween, but after that I just want to enjoy the rest of the season at Dumont when it's empty.
  7. Unfortunately, she needs another $40 pass. Each vehicle that enters needs one.
  8. We'll be coming out early Thursday morning! A few of us coming from Las Vegas, and a few of my buddies from San Diego. Looking for a cool group to hang with if possible. My wife will be out for Thursday only (because she works black Friday weekend at Caesar's Palace). Will she need a permit for her car if she's just there for the day? I'll have one for the RV, and my truck, but don't really want to drop another $40 for her car haha.
  9. Yesterday
  10. Tell your pops to order a car while there
  11. That's a REALLY nicely done cage...
  12. Nice!! The nose on that cage is gnarly.
  13. Next time you need batteries try 2, 6 volt golf cart batteries. Like Trojans, or from Sam's club or costco. They give you more amp hours.
  14. Just thought I would share a quick walk around the new 2 seat can am build by funco for my pops. Came out really really nice
  15. Last week
  16. My new rig came with a Go-Power 200 watt solar panel and a power inverter. I used to run my generator constantly on my old rig without solar, now I only run the generator when I have to use the microwave or AC. Everything else is ran straight up on 2- 12v batteries. I leave my panel in "recharge boost" mode starting from the morning until night fall. I run my 40" TV that draws about 140 watts for about 3-4 hrs a day. I can go all weekend without any issues. Would never go back to not having solar.
  17. We still need the generator, but only for high power consumers like the microwave, AC, etc. We don't watch TV anymore at the dunes or even have an inverter, but you could definitely watch TV throughout the day with solar alone. Newer TVs don't draw too much power. I would upgrade to at least 4 six volt batteries and 400 watts of solar to keep everything charged throughout the night. Those furnace heaters draw a ton when it's cold.
  18. awesome job! ive been considering doing the same thing.
  19. Hey Pete, if I can ask, How does this affect the need for a generator in you consumption? can you run a tv during the day without a generator running? I would love quiet power but I’m not sure with just 2 6 volt batteries I’d have enough juice to make it all day and then through a cold night with the furnace fan running
  20. Hi all, Super old post that I am bring back from the dead but I thought it was worth it with the aging toy haulers out there that are gonna start running into problems like I just did. I filled up the tank for a long weekend boon-docking in the Mojave. And as soon as we got the trailer all set up the wife complained of smelling gas in the trailer. I didn’t think much of it until I sat in the chair outside and caught a wiff. Sure enough there was a decent leak coming from somewhere around the filler neck and no fix to be had. So we pulled all the bikeS to the fuel station and topped them all off and ran the genny like it was going out of style. Finally the dripped stopped and we could start to rest easy. After the trip I yanked it out of the trailer which is no easy task by yourself and called the neighbor over to help me drain the remaining 7+/- gallons of gas and off to the repair shop I went. I ended up going to Motor Mission for my repair and though I have not yet gotten it back I have been in constant contact with them and they have been very hands on and helpful with my repair! I have great confidence that I will get a good product from them based on the awesome work they have done for me in the past (had a LT1 motor massaged by them) I will update as soon as I get my tank back.
  21. We can bring tables and ez up as well
  22. I can bring an EZ up and I have folding picnic table
  23. Buggy Roundup thread...
  24. There are actually a few things that would help us with this year's buggy roundup so if anyone can bring an of these items out, please let me know. One or two EZ UPs 2 or 3 folding tables and/ or picnic tables Possibly a large propane flat top griddle so we can have two large grills this year expedite the cooking speakers with a microphone (DJ setup?) Raffle prize donations: If you have a company or know someone who would like to help us with some items to be raffled off, please get in contact with me. We'll be hosting a raffle this year to help cover website costs and expenses associated with the buggy roundup (tacos, coffee, etc).
