    Vote: November Dune Pic of the Month submissions

    Saw this on one of my solo rides and thought I really like what this represents in so many ways...

    Gas cans

    Yeah, if you can even get the gas to come out of the spout in the first place. Not a very brilliant design by any means.

    Who's on top of the Big Dune?

    This was from an off-weekend. Kind of cool shot coming-up on the Big Dune...

    Lil upset

    Yep, just about endo'd into one of those tracks myself this past week, about 2' deep way out east (past all the bathrooms). It's pure laziness by the groups that let their kids create the ditches and just drive away at the end of the weekend. At the very least, they could take a shovel and fill it back in. It'd only take a few minutes. It's just like the folks that dump their weekend's worth of garbage in the fire pit and drive off. Just no respect for anything and the next folks that come along. And how hard is it to tie-down your trash bag in the back of a pick-up truck so it doesn't blow out on the way home. Must have counted five bags of trash on the way back to Vegas.

    New Years Weekend Report 2015

    Had a really great weekend over New Years - finally a weekend with NO WIND during the day! Camped with a decent group of people until it came time to leave on Sunday - why do people seem to think it's OK to put 3 or 4 days worth of garbage in the campfire before they leave???? It was a mess, full of beer cans and bottles. I picked-up what I could before we left, but there was still a smoldering mess. Sorry Dumont Dunes
  9. Had a lot of fun over Thanksgiving recording this video. Plan to have better camera shots next time with the FPV actually working. Enjoy! http://youtu.be/Ehg_gzp6qio

    Dronie Captures Dune Thrashing - Turkey Day 2014

    This video was captured using the DJI F450 quad-rotor with an H3-3d gimbal. With the FPV working, I should be able to center my shots better, and get WAY lower to follow the group longer (well that's the hope...).

    Dronie Captures Dune Thrashing - Turkey Day 2014

    We're known as the Alien Camp with the eerily green aliens atop our rigs. We'll be along the cliffs, west of vendors row, so stop by. There are several of us the FLY too, so I'd be willing to capture a little footage of your group, or you join our ride group. Maybe see you over the New Year's weekend (just look for the aliens, like my avatar).

    Halloween 2014 pics and weekend reports

    This video was taken late Sunday, maybe around 11am. A lot of people had already left. We camped along the cliffs and there was a steady stream out early Sunday.

    Halloween 2014 pics and weekend reports

    DJI F450 - Yes! Was only able to fly the really big hex (custom 650) once - just too windy to lose the big $$.

    Dumont Halloween Weekend 2013 pics and highlights

    Thanks for the double billing (two photos) on the Alien shots - It's a big thing in our camp.

    lost keys

    Awesome! Keys that were found (above) are the keys I lost. Many thanks to Judy and John for this posting thread and we have arranged for the return of the keys. Hope we can meet-up some time in the future. Joe

    lost keys

    100% right, haven't logged-in since way before May! I sent an email previously, we'll see. I already made a replacement set of keys. Just two that could not be replaced, a couple of barrel keys. Thanks.

    lost keys

    So this is a really late reply, maybe it'll be seen by the next dune season. Did the found set of keys have a Ford key, a couple Trimax keys, Master Lock keys (2), and a key with "fuel" on it (along with others)? If you still have them, let me know. Thanks!
