    Perfect Weather

    Mother nature gave us some great weather today!
  2. Awesome report and photos! What an awesome weekend!
  3. Pete: Amazing is an understatement
  4. This morning I received a msg here on DDR stating that they had my sons quad and wanted to get together to get it back to me. After a few brief messages we met up in a public area to get the quad. There are a lot of great people out there and this truly is an amazing community. When they came across it, they thought someone got stuck and had to walk out. The bike was just as it was and nothing done to it. So after all the bad news we read day in and day out... there are still some good people still out there I thought my son was going to start hugging the bike when I got home.. Just want to say thank you to everyone that shared my post and helped get my son his quad back! This community is like a big family! Thank you!
  5. I am reaching out to see how close and tight the "Off-road" community really is. This past weekend (saturday 1/28/17) I went with some friends and my youngest son to ride from Cold Creek to Pahrump and back. Knowing full well there was snow on the ground we thought we would see exactly how far we could make it and have a little fun in the snow. About 1/2 way up the hill my son could no longer continue in the deep snow on his quad. I stashed it the best I could in almost 3' of snow in some trees. We continued on, no more than 1.5 miles up the trail when we couldnt make it any further. In the distance we could see a red truck coming up the trail, but it had stopped for a little while in one spot. That spot just so happened to be where my sons quad was stashed. On our way back down we came upon a husband and wife on utility quads stuck in the snow. While chatting with them they mentioned a red ford raptor and a white tacoma picking up a quad down the trail. At that point my heart sank... My son (14 years old) is devastated.. he worked his ass off for over a year to buy that quad and fix it the way he wanted. It took us maybe 10 minutes to get back to where his quad was. From there everything took a very bad turn, even worse. While trying to get down the hill to try and catch up with the red truck I came around a corner with 2 rzr's coming the opposite direction. On a narrow snow covered trail and no place to go... we collided. Thank god everyone was wearing harnesses and no one was hurt. (thank god) I sent two of my friends on to get to the staging area hoping that these people were only taking the bike down off the mountain. I was/am hoping that they thought it was stuck and someone went for help. All three rzr's were wrecked and only one was drive able (after swapping a flat tire) My car and one of the other rzr's had to be towed off the mountain which took roughly 3.5 hours. But no quad or red ford raptor to be found.. So I beg and plead with the off road community is as tight and friendly as everyone I've had the pleasure to meet. I'm offering a reward for the return of my sons quad. If you took it with bad intentions.. I only want it back and will NOT press charges. Again, I only want the quad back no questions asked. Attached are some pics of the quad. and if anyone sees it, can you please contact me. Thank you very much!
  6. wtf.. I was typing up a reply and hit submit and it was all gone... And what are you talking about... looks like you had fun too!
  7. It was a short quiet weekend with perfect weather! Sand was still a little wet and it made for tons of traction! Saturday morning was a little chilly, but warmed up fast. The wind picked up early on saturday night but died back down. Just enough to show the wet sand on the faces of the dunes. We left early Sunday while the rest of our group stayed until Monday morning. Sunday turned out to be the best day all weekend.
  8. Haven't made it into the sand but it looks like it's going to be an epic day!!
  9. Ya know Pete... Its funny you posted this. 2016 was a rough year for many people, I for one really cant complain. Its easy to pick out all the bad things that happened, but all in all I would rather look at all the positive. Like you, we have our health, jobs, food on the table, roof over our head and fuel in the toys. We can all complain and b*tch about whats wrong or bad but there are thousands of people that have it MUCH worse! I do my best to "pay it forward" and help those that I can, when I can. Remove the negativity from your life and always look for the good in people. Here is to a positive 2017!!
  10. I think we're in for MLK... It will be a short quick trip for us, but 99% sure we will be there.. Hope its a quiet weekend and the sand dries out some!
  11. AWESOME job on the video! I love the drone shots!!
  12. We just spent an hour and a half with Christie Wilcox from Channel 3. They wanted to interview all of us and get some video of the land speeder from the LVMPD PSA.. It's supposed to air at 11pm tonight on Channel 3 https://twitter.com/ChristyNews3LV
  13. Looks like we were on Good Morning America this morning! 45 seconds in
