  1. The dreaded W blew all night and looks to be continuing today. Maybe Monday's predicted storm rolling in early?? Sand is saturated and is slidy and then tons of hook up. Camp area is pretty sparse, filled in a little last night, but definitely not a huge crowd.
  2. Merry Christmas from Dumont! I hope you all had a great time! Today was a good day with some dune grooming. Not too crazy, just enough to smooth out the lighter tracks. We spent most of the day kicking back with Christmas movies, like Krampus and making cookies, then riding in the afternoon. JoeDuner arrived later in the afternoon and we went for another run. Then it was back to the home for a full spread of ham, mashed potatoes, gravy, rolls, stuffing, broccoli and pie. Now that the gluteny is over it's time for cocktails by the fire!
  3. Love being out here Christmas week. After sitting in the moho most of the morning, we finally uncovered the vehicles and cruised the dunes. Hit up the swing set and cruised to the South Pole. Today its quiet and cloudy, we had a slight sprinkle, now it is just cloudy. Time to chill with a movie and a cocktail.

    12/20 Report

    What a great start to Christmas week at Dumont! Arrived mid morning, unloaded the X3's and decorated the moho for Christmas. Exchanged presents with our CA family and then set out to tear up the sand. Mike got me a new set of Eibach springs, so I couldn't wait to try them out. I can't believe how much smoother my ride was with a new set of springs and a shock adjustment. Sand still had some good lines laid out from last weekend's buggy round up. Found some friends to line up with. It was good getting rides in with others before we settle in for the week with just one more hauler. Cold and cloudy.
  5. So far on Vendor Row.... DuneMart Jericho California Casuals Desert Bling Brights Delights RV Rentals Dirty Mindz Short Bus Dirt 2 Dunes Powersports I did hear that the Baker Taco wasn't vending...
  6. It's pretty cool. NO I'm not going to give coordinates! Part of the fun is in the finding of it. It's even nicely lit up at night.
  7. Dirt 2 Dunes Powersports will be there this year. Providing your basic UTV necessities. Belts, axels, Dune Therapy goggles, etc. https://www.facebook.com/dirt2dunes/
  8. Our season opener had perfect conditions!
  9. Your typical beginning of the season sh*tty road... BLM should start grading this sucker the day we are suppose to pay to enter.... Topping out at 10 mph. Grade F
  10. I'll make sure to get pics and a report this weekend
  11. Had to get up early and hit up the dunes, so we didn't miss the ride time. Yesterday it got toasty, and today is supposed to be hotter. But we're still at Dumont and having a great time! Didn't have to run the AC, but probably will today. Great morning and evening runs. Still shelfy.

    Summer Sand

    Just got back from the cocktail sunset run. The dunes are definitely "summer dunes" big shelves and witches eyes. But buttery smooth virgin dunes. Maybe tomorrow we'll stop where I can get pics.

    Just rolled in. It's breezy.
  14. Great vid! That is almost our exact favorite run too!
  15. Heading that way now! Get a full day of riding before the clean up begins!
  16. We're FINALLY able to get back out! Haven't been since MLK weekend! That's like a life time for us! Darn promotion to manager for me and Mike being an employee again! Ah life is good, even if the sand time has to suffer.
  17. Dune conditions are perfect!!!
  18. Great long weekend! Can't wait to get back out there!! Mike had a great 50th birthday spent duning with family and friends!
  19. I have a one cup "dorm style" coffee maker. I am the only one who drinks coffee, so it doesn't make any sense to have a big pot of coffee for one. For Cocoa and Hot Buttered Rums, I use your standard tea pot to boil water.
  20. I am the meat smoker in my house! I just graduated from the old watch it all day add wood all day smoker to a Pit Boss pellet smoker. Not as fancy as a Treager, but works just the same. I love it! I picked up a digital and blue tooth meat thermometer link to a similar one ----> Blue Tooth Meat Thermometer Smoking meat is totally addicting! I wish I could get one of those table top smokers to smoke meat in the dunes. Just a bit out of my current paycheck range. I have done many pork butts over night! That's how my ride got her name... LOL! Pork Butt! Just beating everyone to the Canned Ham joke, since I was the first in our camp with a Can Am (before the X3 came out). I just recently did 16 pounds of Pork Butt on the pellet stove, first big cook on it. That sold it for me! I grabbed the bone and it just fell apart... PERFECTION!
  21. Hey there was a girl on the stage too... We were literally right behind you when the po po showed up. We arrived probably about the same time and turned around as soon as they rolled in.
  22. We would always go the "back way" through Pahrump when we lived in the NW. We would would take a right on Leslie off of NV 160 and stop at the Coyote Corner on Leslie and Irene. Click for link ----> Coyote Corner I was always super impressed with their customer service, I would buy ice there too and the guy at the register would never let me carry it out myself. We had no problem swinging in with our 41.5 ft hauler. Going the "back way" towards Amargosa was actually only slightly longer, but a whole ton easier on both driver and rig.
  23. Playing as the sun fades on a great day at Dumont.
