  1. It wasn't just a coyote was it?
  2. Unfortunately there was a fatality this last Saturday when a side x side rolled at Comp hill. The driver was pronounced dead at the scene and the passenger had injuries. I always hate hearing about these accidents. I don't know exactly how it happened, but it's always a reminder to always play it safe out there and wear proper safety gear. Coroner Press Release On Saturday, February 20, 2021, at 8:32 PM, Bradley Scott Mowdy, a 62-year-old resident of Corcoran California, was the driver of a UTV that rolled over in the Dumont Dunes Off Highway Vehicle Area near Baker CA.

  3. A legend was lost today. Bruce Meyers, creator of the Meyers Manx dune buggy in 1964, revolutionized how we dune today. He started it all. His creation of the dune buggy became an icon of our culture in the sand and off-road community. Legends like this are few and far between. He will be missed! Bruce was 94. Meyers died of a blood disease called myelodysplasia, which is similar to leukemia. photo cred
  4. The Barstow BLM, in cooperation with Friends of Dumont Dunes, is hosting the 19th annual Dumont Dunes cleanup on March 13th, 2021. The cleanup signup starts at 8AM and usually goes until about noon/ 2PM. Get your friends together and bring a hat, gloves, sunscreen, sunglasses and either your OHV or pickup to haul trash to the dumpster that BLM will be providing. Friends of Dumont Dunes will be providing a BBQ lunch for volunteers as well as quickdraw prizes. All volunteers will also get free admission to Dumont Dunes for the weekend (March 12-15) by showing your wristband on the w
  5. There was a crew out there working on it yesterday.
  6. Not that I'm organizing, no. I can't even make it out to cleanup this year. I have to work that Saturday.
  7. March 13, 2021 will be the day for a COVID-19 compliant clean-up at Dumont Dunes. BLM will supply dumpster, water, and tool trailer. BLM will be on-site to sign-up volunteers. Pens will be disinfected between users, hand sanitizer will be available, and social distancing will be required. If not feeling well, stay home or seek medical attention as appropriate.

  9. Post up your pics from President's weekend. We have a bunch on our social media, but zero on here so far. WTF guys!? Ya'll slacken.
  10. It's wherever you'll be camped! Usually next to the mariachi band. PS I don't go holiday weekends anymore. Enjoy the shitshow!
  11. Vendors! Post up if you will be out at Dumont on Vendor Row for President's weekend. Please only one business post allowed. No thread bumps with the same info.
  12. Hey Gary thanks for reaching out and posting up what happened. I'm glad your nephew is ok and wasn't hurt! The guy who put up the swingset is already making plans to remove it and upgrade it from what I have heard. There are many others who have helped to volunteer as well. I just hope that it doesn't happen again. I have mixed feelings on these things that have popping up at Dumont over the last year or so. The swingset is cool and a fun place to visit, especially for the kids, but without having a set of safety standards, routine checks and maintenance, this is what is bound to happen. I kn
  13. I just wanted to post an update since I have not listed the cleanup date yet on our events page or calendar. I got with Jason from Friends of Dumont Dunes and he still needs to talk with BLM as far as if, how, and when cleanup will happen this year. It will probably still come together sometime in the middle of March, but that is all I have right now. I will definitely post an update and date as soon as it all gets decided on. I know some people have been asking so I wanted to post what I knew so far.
  14. They did great! It felt good to once again pull the front tires up on some of those rollers now that I have traction. The razorbacks were a huge improvement too. Much more responsive and it sticks to the dune when side hilling. Ahh that was you guys? Damn. Would have be great to finally meet you.
  15. Is anyone else headed out this weekend? I'll be out with a few buddies. Stoked to try out my new paddles and front razorbacks!
  16. Please click "mark as sold" at the top to remove the post
  17. UPDATE: Dec 13, 2020 AT&T is finally operational. Both Verizon and AT&T work, but no other carriers unless they operate on the AT&T or Verizon networks. Since the announcement of the new cell tower being built at Dumont Dunes, we have all been very excited to see 5 bars and 4G service out at there. Expected completion days kept getting pushed farther and farther back, but the tower is 100% built. At this point we've just waiting for the carriers to have their services "on air". That time might have finally come (with Verizon). 12/23/19 Update: Verizon
  18. Hi there Simon. It was me who published the article. Larry Short of Short Sand Cars built me that car. He never offered plans and is no longer building sandcars. That's why the site is gone. I sold the car about 10 years ago.
  19. Awesome. Thanks for sharing Mike! Looks like a nice weekend in the sand.
  20. Good looking chassis! Looking forward to seeing the build. I might have a set of 10" stroke shocks for sale soon. I bought new ones with compression clickers installed but they are on backorder. Once I get them I'll let you know when my old ones are available for sale. They are Fox 2.0 coilover shocks, 10" stroke, with piggyback reservoirs. Shocks only, no springs.
  21. Vendors, post up if you are at Dumont this weekend. (MLK Weekend) One free "ad" post is allowed in this topic.
  22. Go back to sleep? I posted that at 6:12 PM. hahaha All is well buddy. I hope you are doing great. It's been too long.
  23. Pat, wake up! Gerald I guess you could call him. ha!
  24. These are sold, correct? Please mark as sold if they are.
