  3. 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.
  4. It's wherever you'll be camped! Usually next to the mariachi band. PS I don't go holiday weekends anymore. Enjoy the shitshow!
  5. 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.
  6. 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 know it is a huge liability for the BLM. The swingset at Glamis is insanely overbuilt and nothing has happened to it. Maybe the Dumont swingset builders can take notes? Welcome to DDR by the way!
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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!
  10. 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.
  11. Awesome. Thanks for sharing Mike! Looks like a nice weekend in the sand.
  12. 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.
  13. Vendors, post up if you are at Dumont this weekend. (MLK Weekend) One free "ad" post is allowed in this topic.
  14. 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.
  15. Pat, wake up! Gerald I guess you could call him. ha!
  16. Gonna have to start deleting the ads that don't post a price or follow the simple rules.
  17. Who's going out? Unfortunately I'll be missing this one due to work. Weather looks bitchen too! Highs in the 70's!
  18. The first holiday weekend of the new year is right around the corner, Martin Luther King Weekend. What better way to start the new year than to get out to the sandbox and enjoy some good ole outdoors? MLK weekend is one of the 5 official holiday weekends when you need a holiday season pass (or buy a $40 holiday weekly pass at the entrance). Even though it is a holiday weekend, it is never super busy and many of us consider this a "duners holiday". Don't expect huge comp hill parties or rookies leaving their trash everywhere, just duners who like to dune! If you've been keeping an eye on the weather, it looks as though Dumont will already see highs in the 70's for MLK. Get out, be safe, and have some fun! 10 day Dumont weather forecast
  19. Sorry for what? I don't care. Yep. Some angry people.
  20. Wow! Glad you got it back.
  21. But how about now? or now? now?
  22. We used to go on and on about this topic back in the day on here. My thoughts.... It's pretty dumb. The finger dune has always been used by duners and for people to cone it off and expect it to be a safe place for their kids to play is just plain reckless. No, duners shouldn't blast down the dune since it is close to camps, however if I see a dune I'm gonna driving down it. If the cones are in my way and make it unsafe for me to drive down the regular traffic pattern, I don't adjust what I'm doing. Those cones may get knocked over. I always look out for people hanging out or playing on the dune though. Those people who cone it off need to realize that it's a path travel and everyone always has to transition over it to get to the dunes.
  23. What's up maxdout. Long time no see. You can actually do that by clicking mark as sold at the top.
