  1. We had some great weather. A little chilly in the morning but it warned up quickly. The dunes were in great shape. There weren't too many people out there for MLK this year and seemed like less than last year's. Perfect! The only crowd I saw was at the North Pole when they were all putting that new pole in. We had some great dune runs and even squeezed in a Little Dumont rip. That place is alot of fun and so is the cruise over. I stopped and finally met some of the vendors and picked up some shirts, hat and sweatshirt. Jericho Specialties, Desert Bling, Short Bus Ice Cream and the snow cone guy were out. Saturday night we all sat around the fire and smudge pot watching supercross. All in all it was a great weekend! Here's some pics...
  2. If you've been to Dumont Dunes, chances are you've been to the North Pole. It's one of the most popular spots out there. Over the years, the North Pole has seen some weather, abuse, and vandalism. It has been rebuilt several times. A few years ago a large second pole was installed next to the original North Pole. It was a "super sized" North Pole and everyone loved it. It became a Dumont monument where duners would hang items of importance and visit while on run through the dunes. Late Friday night of MLK weekend, it was set on fire. Duners first noticed the burned pole down Saturday morning as it was still smoldering. The remaining little bit of pole was propped back up with rocks by the duners. Everyone was outraged. Social media blew up and the community was pissed. A few Vegas guys quickly came together with a plan for a new pole. They were welcomed with applause and cheer when they arrived out there. Everyone came together and helped erect the new North Pole. The old memorials and items were salvaged and placed on the pole before it was put in the ground. A flag and solar lights were also installed.
  3. The new pole went up yesterday. I live streamed it for about an hour.
  4. The actual North Pole & mailbox are fine. Someone did burn that piece of trash down though. lol I put my 2 cents in on it here...
  5. The orignal metal North Pole & mailbox are untouched. The big wood pole that was installed a few years ago that has acted as a trash collection was burned down by somebody late Friday night/ Saturday morning of MLK weekend. I heard about it first thing Saturday morning. These are my thoughts and I realize not many people will agree but here it goes. It's a shame that someone would even think of doing this in the first place. People have no respect these days. It also sucks that some people put their memorials and things of importance on that pole to begin with. They should have chosen a much more respectful & fitting place like Memorial Hill. I'm starting to realize alot of people have no idea that place even exists at Dumont. All or most of those things on the pole were destroyed. On a happier note, all those old shoes, busted up riding gear, broken whips, and pretty much old trash was also burned up. I really don't see the big deal. It's just a second pole that was honestly looking pretty bad and it looked like it was going to fall over soon. I'm not upset it's gone, but I hear someone is already planning on putting up another pole. Apparently the original pole & mailbox isn't good enough.
  6. until
    Some people like to plan early, so here's the dates for Halloween weekend 2020. October 30-Nov 1, 2020.
  7. A little "breezy" today in Vegas. I wonder if any of that W blew out at D today. The sand should be in great shape! And look at Sunday. High of 67! nice
  8. Badass buggy especially for the price. Good luck, Mike.
  9. Looks like we'll be heading out for MLK weekend! Anyone else going out? Weather forecast looks good. Partly cloudy, highs around 60 and lows near 40.
  10. Just thought I'd start a thread for President's weekend. Who' headed out this year? Oh and heads up- no Jeep drags/ hill climbs this year. The Jeep club is taking a break this time around.
  11. President's Weekend is coming up and it's one of Dumont's biggest weekends other than Halloween & Thanksgiving. The normal tradition for President's weekend is the Jeep Jamboree drags and hill climbs, but this year the club is taking a break. You can still expect the normal crowds and vendors to be there though. If you plan on going out anytime from Feb 11-17, 2020, you will need a holiday pass. Trump image credit
  12. A cool backstory to this.
