  1. 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!! Jodi Sandchick Secretary Friends of Dumont Dunes
  2. Pete you definitely missed a great one. The turn out was incredible. I'm still speechless at the turn out. We're already making big plans for next year. As the newly elected secretary of FoDD, I'm looking forward to seeing what the future holds for the organization.
  3. WOW! I am speechless at the turn out we had for the clean up this year! We rolled in Thursday night so we could spend Friday duning, as we knew the clean up event would take most of the day Saturday. We spent a short time visiting around the campfire before going to bed. Up early Friday morning, but had to wait for the second ride of the day as I had homework to finish. But got in the mid morning run. It was a good one! Fast and nice lines. The black cloud started rolling in close and we made it back to camp just in time for the rain to start. So we played some dominos in the motorhome and waited it out. The sky cleared up and the rain stopped just in time for the sunset run. Which was another great one. Sand was wet on top, but dry underneath. We watched the sun fade in the sky and headed back to camp for dinner and campfire stories. Jason rolled in and we had shots in the motorhome to celebrate the start of the Clean Up Weekend. We mapped out a game plan for the event and headed to get a good nights sleep. Saturday morning we got busy getting ready. The Pink Box Doughnuts arrived and the coffee was flowing at the event area. I ran over to the BLM area to see if they needed any help to get the ball rolling. Jumped in and started handing out garbage bags to get the line moving along. The amount of people who turned out for the event was incredible! It was like it used to be back in the early 2000's. Maybe even more! It was exciting to see how many people showed up and cleaned up! Thank you all, each one of you. You cared, you showed up and you filled one large dumpster to overflowing. It was time to head over to the clean up weekend event site near bathroom #4. The delicious food was almost ready to be served. @JeepingJay36 worked his butt off on the preparing another great BBQ lunch this year! Thank you for everything you do for this event! Just before we got started on the raffle, the board of Friends of Dumont Dunes had an official meeting and I was voted in as the newest board member filling in the role of secretary. I can't wait to see what the future holds. The quick draw and raffle prizes were off the chain! Even a full set of Toyo tires donated by the event sponser Dirt 2 Dunes Powersports. So many vendors, shops, businesses and individuals donated some amazing items! It took a while but we finally got through them all! We broke from picking up after the event in just enough time for a sunset cruise. We enjoyed the empty dunes as everyone else was busy watching the drags. Got in one last ride this morning before packing up and heading home. 201 days til October! See you then Dumont! See you then!
  4. There's a pretty decent amount of people out here for clean up weekend. This is the only weekend I can get excited about crowds! It's cool and cloudy with a gentle breeze.
  5. Check out the latest prize packages for the Friends of Dumont Dunes Clean Up! Who's ready for some giving back with chances to win some of this awesomeness? Even the vendors are stepping up to support the clean up
  6. Thank you! It was a good weekend.
  7. 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. PXL_20210228_153825804.LS.mp4
  8. 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.

  9. Look at the beginning line up for the quick draw prizes! This year is shaping up to be amazing! Holy crap a tuner from Dynojet is even on the table!
  10. Please come join the Friends of Dumont Dunes for this event. Dumont needs it more after this crazy busy year. Its been heartbreaking to see all the posts of trash left behind. It looks like this year is going to be a great one! Hot BBQ lunch for everyone who participates! Quick draw raffle prizes, 1 ticket for every trash bags gathered. The prizes are still rolling in! There are several prize packages being donated from shops, businesses and individuals in the off road community! Trophies for the most bags gathered for individual and group, largest item found and strangest item found! DM me if you want to donate prizes from the Las Vegas area and can't make the event, for a pick up or one of the drop off locations.
  11. Sad to hear this news. Thoughts go out to the family and friends.
  12. I'll be out helping with whatever is needed. I'm also the point of contact for anyone wanting to donate prizes from Las Vegas, that can't make it to the clean up event. I'll be available the next few weeks to meet up and collect donations. If you need me to get your donation picked up shoot me a DM! I'm also personally donating some "kid friendly" prizes. The kiddos always get overlooked when it comes to the prize fun, but they're always so eager to help out!
