    Will quads be phased out by side x sides?

    I sold mine, cause, let's face it... I got old. I miss the feeling of sliding through the sand on my Honda. Doctor said no more... I still have to wear a neck brace in the Maverick. It's only a matter of time before I will have no choice but to get the neck surgery...

    What's new for you next season?

    New to us dune home... Hoping to take it out for the first time over Labor Day, some place cooler.. 2003 Holiday Rambler Scepter Diesel Pusher And Shasta passed away in May I wanted a specific breed of dog when I was ready, I knew I would want to rescue, I figured it was going to take forever to find exactly what I was looking for, since most rescue groups had never heard of the breed before. Catahoula Leopard Dog. I was getting a what? I wanted young, female and mostly black and grey... The group I signed up with found one immediately in Kingman, AZ. So we now have Sandy as our newest family member, she's a handful full of puppy energy, but she'll be able to keep up with our life style and my backpacking adventures.. she already loves her own backpack, I can't wait to be able to put weight in it and take her on her first trip.

    I've managed to get out of the heat of Vegas a couple of times... Did 36 miles on the John Muir Trail, this was my first time in the Sierra's, just three girls. Backpacking with girls is a completely different monster then backpacking with dudes, conversations about face cream and make-up and fingernail paint vs. poop, body smell and farts... Lol.. I think I would rather talk about poop... Although it was pretty empowering being 3 female's, trekking into bear country, without the security of a male... We hit up three passes over 10,000 ft and Donahue Pass was 13, 075 ft. The wildflower were crazy! The high mountain lakes were breathtaking. With my usual guys, we trek longer miles and faster paces. So it was nice to take our time and take photos. Here are a few of my favorites...

New house, owning again is freaking awesome!!! But less trips.. Back to college... Did manage to land a West Rim Trail permit in Zion...

    Summertime Sand Fix Tips

    One of our best times was in June several years back, Mike brought home the Trick car and that weekend the temps plummeted to highs in the 60's! It was awesome! I remember the old days when we did the night rides. We're right in the middle of escrow dune trips are going to be few to none this summer.... hopefully Mike and I will survive

    April Dune Pic of the Month

    Thank you!

    First time to Dumont advice April 4-7

    The camp area is one big open area. It's not like Glamis with the pads and washes. The main thing to be aware of are the razors, shelves and witches eyes. The dunes have been different each time I was there this season. We have two destinations North Pole and South Pole... Neither of which are North or South... LOL! Be safe and have fun! Lot's of water and chill in the creek with an easy up and a cooler when it's too hot to ride...

    Dumont entrance road updates

    That road is awful. Pretty sure nothing has been done to it since president's day weekend. It's down to that concrete mix stuff from years ago... wash-boarded out everyplace that isn't that concrete mix. You think with the clean up weekend, this past weekend, BLM would have made the effort to do something with that road, to show the people volunteering to keep our dunes clean that they care about our efforts... boo on the BLM I watched as they packed up and were leaving before the event was even over, couldn't get out of there fast enough, and no one was there when we left to check our passes or wrist bands.

    Smooth And Shelfy

    The "W" howled all night, leaving the dunes buttery smooth, but very shelfy! When I got up early this morning to get milky way shots, there was no breeze. Now there's just a slight one. No tracks and barely any one here. The military birds just blew over us in the dunes! Looking forward to tomorrow's clean up events!
