  1. "There was one small camp with tents" When you gotta dune, you gotta dune!
  2. I'm happy about it. I think any negative side effects will only be sparse and temporary. It is going to be my goal to not allow my brain to "cherry pick" the inevitable negatives as reason to ruin a good day at the dunes.
  3. Sorry it took so long for this: I've been going for about 10 years. - Use the map provided on the ultra4 website, at the gate, or on Cartotracks. - Camp wherever you can find room (there are a lot of people and most of the "best" spots will already be taken), ideally away from trails or you will be dusted out and up all night. - Spectator areas: Hammertown jumbotron, Backdoor, Chocolate Thunder, (there will probably be a jumbotron at those two locations as well), turkey claw and Lasernut Alley (this is fairly new); again use provided map to find. - If all else fails, follow a random group and see what you see; it's all good! Have Fun!
  4. 2021-2022 Season Passes are available for purchase now (as of 16 September 2021) at BLM Barstow over the phone. The office is still closed to in-person transactions and they are not sure when it will open up again. The info tab on this site has all the info you need to get a hold of them but for quick reference their phone number is 760-252-6000. Have a safe season!
  5. I saw this question when it was first posted and I thought about replying but hesitated. To the OP: I am sure a lot of people have some useful ideas on this but not knowing how those reading it will ultimately implement any suggestions is probably causing others to hesitate as well. It's risky and those involved are young. Your best bet is to talk one-on-one with others about ideas. Sorry, I can't be more helpful here.
  6. I believe all those UTV truck racks sit mostly in the bed of the truck which would conflict with your 5th wheel.

    Coming from SoCal I believe the Mobile on Bear Valley Road in Victorville has E85. Mall Chevron 14250 Bear Valley Rd, Victorville, CA 92392 (442) 243-6650 https://maps.app.goo.gl/A8YQgysic4xMbpRo6
  8. If anyone brings one of the new Yamaha RMAX UTVs to Dumont I would really like to hear a ride report especially if it is the RMAX4 (the 4 seater). Any info on tire choice, modifications, number of passengers, where you took it, where you didn't feel comfortable going with it, I would love to give you a virtual high-five. I know this may be a shot in the dark or may just take some time before someone does this and sees this post but anything would be super appreciated. Thanks!
  9. Oops! Bad punctuation. Should be " Verizons' "
  10. We had a camp with 2 Verizon's and 4 AT&Ts staring at the tower over at the little dunes between 15-18th of October and only the Verizon's had service (very good service at that).

    Cowboy Coffee

    Normally we bring a French press for coffee but last time we were at Dumont we suddenly found ourselves with many requests for coffee. This recipe for Cowboy Coffee is not mine but is a great way to make a lot of coffee in a pinch. 1. Add water to your pot and bring it to a boil. 2. Once the water’s boiling, remove the pot from your fire and let it sit for 30 seconds. This will lower the water temperature to 200°F — the perfect temperature for brewing coffee. 3. Add 2 tablespoons of finely ground coffee for every 8 ounces of water. (You may want to measure how much water your pot holds and how much coffee a spoon you bring holds before going camping so you can measure accurately.) 4. Stir the grounds into the water. 5. Let the brew sit for 2 minutes and stir again. 6. Let the coffee sit for 2 more minutes. 7. After a total of 4 minutes of brewing, sprinkle a little cold water on the grounds. Yes, this actually does help them settle to the bottom. 8. Slowly pour the coffee, so the grounds remain on the bottom of the pot.

  12. Totally, just wanted to clarify in case Dumont gets a Red Flag or Fire Watch. Personally I have never looked into either for Dumont nor do I know historically if it has ever been given. Thanks again!
  13. Lifting of the fire ban is great news! Thanks for passing this along. Also, it looks like camp fires are still banned when under a Red Flag Warning or Fire Weather Watch.
