  1. We spent an hour Saturday checking out the Baker to Vegas runners: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=74OO9bfECiU&app=desktop
  2. Brother do Duramax trucks ever hold their resale value. Astonishing. Dmax Trucks are judged more by condition than mileage. We were shocked how much we were offered on a trade in, then the huge discount on the new truck. No brainer IMHO. We like the 2020's increased power, the feature that more net power is delivered to the rear wheels/4wd with the more efficient driveline, the towing mirrors and a dozen other items. Strong talk in the truck rags EGR will be gone in a few years. Supposed to be gone in this years Ram Cummins goes the tale.
  3. Good chance we'll roll in. Burn off the remaining race gas and firewood.
  4. We have a 2015 Dmax 3500 Dually we really like but when the 2020 becomes avail we like what we see and will trade it in on one. Interesting features:
  5. Lot's of windstorms have been blowing in from the Southeast in the past year. Makes big changes on the dunes and really replenishes them.
  6. We upgraded our Jet Pac at the Verizon Store in Parump and they mentioned the existing tower on Highway 127 had some up grades and additions done. Maybe that's what some are talking about causing some confusion. Damfino though. Our phones signal definitely got stronger. The new Jet Pac about the same signal but it'll be 5g ready if ever that hits in our lifetimes and it only cost $1 to upgrade on a special deal.
  7. Last evening we shut down the North Pole until sundown. MFSOB cold wind. Leaving this morning the sand seemed a bit tighter and it was an easier pull out. We’ll no doubt return for Presidents day.
  8. We’re thinking maybe a late afternoon run. Mixed weather reports.
  9. Over cast and chilly this morning. Accuweather says it’s 45f but seems much colder. Winds predicted for later. A noticeable amount of campers left yesterday. Some not getting Monday off we figure. Our camp will disperse Wednesday. Tonight we we cook the DUMONT ribs and dirty rice for everyone then onto comp hill for NYE. Guys with the headache and wallet burning Turbo YXZs have parked them and are once again hauling the family in their 4 seater Rzrs. If you’re considering a YXZ Turbo kit ya might want to talk to them first. They have seen the elephant. I know one model of the new 2019 YXZ has the beefed up connecting rods and a few other Turbo ready features on the engines. Also the Rzr lug pattern BTW. Clutch and mapping issues and a hole in the turbo housing this timeOut. I think they are flirting with $50 to $ $60k on these builds. The “Package” Turbo X3 RS sensational performance and runs dope. Strong winds hit just this minute.
  10. A couple more wadded up dune buggies, one last night at comp and evidently another today with no reported injuries. Relatively quiet runnings today.
  11. Not that busy a Holiday,, yet. I’d say half of what turned out last year. After the winds the dunes saw action but we didn’t encounter too much cross traffic. A couple married at the North Pole yesterday: Sheriffs wrote a helmet ticket and were checking registration at the North Pole while they were at it. They are running unmarked vehicles. Dune condition outstanding IMHO. Wasnt able to get a video but a new, showroom stock F150 was rolling up and down comp hill and was fantastic. Stock tires too. I’ll shoot some video today if they return. One of our group installed the full blast big turbo package on his new Can Am X3 and it runs flawless and super fast. Beat the turbo YXZ’s, impressive. Has launch control that works dope. A steamer. The guys with the Turbo package YXZs are still dealing with issues and burning through money and patience. Skinner rolled by in his X3 RS max and has the suspension dialed in perfect. Car stays level and straight over the whoops outstanding. Impressive.
  12. Yeah we’ve seen some crazy fast towing but it works.
