  1. Let's be real, all that smoke isn't from the pyrotechnics. Looks like an awesome time Pete. Gotta make sure Stef doesn't see these pics, she'll give me sh*t for her not getting a "beach trip" this summer, lol. That Van is perfect for trips like that.
  2. That's hilarious. 100% Dumont. That's comp in the backround.
  3. This was cool the first year around the rock pile..it was even better last year at the end of vendor row. Can't wait to take the kids over there again this year.
  4. Proshop you say? Perfect. I'll run by there this weekend along with Johnny Walkers for a season pass. So much to do, so little time!!
  5. Haven't tried to log on all week after thinking it was gone again, forever! I'm so glad you met your goal already. I'm still going to kick down a little $ this evening to go toward future expenses. Thanks for all the hard work you do here Pete. And.......DUNE SEASON IS HERE!
  6. Went to the D!!!! Heading to St. Anthony's in a few weeks, so we used that as an excuse for an early morning shake down run. As you would expect, it was amazing.
  7. I love the idea. That's interesting stuff, thanks for all the details. I cringe at the abuse my toy hauler takes every time I drive down that road. Lets face it, we all know our toy haulers are built like sh*t, combine that with the washboard road and every time I get to camp I expect my cabinets to be on the ground. I also don't really think the current state of the road filters anyone out. If you are willing to drive out to the middle of no where to go off roading in dunes, i'm sure a dirt road isn't going to be the thing that stops you. I'd fully support this.
  8. Rolled in last night at about 8. Wind was howling around but died down a bit around 10. Looking out at a pretty empty camping area. Blue Sky's and a light breeze right now. Looks like it's going to be a great day. Oh, the road, gets a big fat F. Take it slow.
  9. I'll roll in tonight. How sh*tty is the dirt road?
  10. Whew, it's gonna be some wet sand out there boys. Let's get some updates as people start showing up. I'm thinking potesi will have some snow up there to go along with the construction.
  11. I'll be there! Hoping the dunes don't get dumped on to much.
  12. 1. Stock tires will work, just not as good as paddles. How many people will be in your machine? If you and 1 passenger, do 8psi rear 10 front. If 4 do 10 rear 12 front. Having 2 psi more In the front will help engage 4wd. And you need to be in 4wd. 2. Use 4wd. 3. Use 4wd. Don't ever stop pointing uphill, or sideways. Only pointing down. If you are side hilling, or going around a bowl, or transitioning... don't slow down to much, you'll roll. When in doubt, throttle out very much applies. 4. Obviously transition parallel to the dune. Turn into it, and just let it transition over. Trust your machine. Don't turn your wheel back into the dune once you transition, you will roll. Just keep rolling straight along the top or turn down. The gas is your friend. If your ass end starts sliding out because you're going to slow around a bowl or whatever, push the skinny pedal. It will straighten you out. Don't slow down to much while transitioning, you'll roll. Use the gas. Like I said, when in doubt..throttle out. Don't buy them right away. If you are a frequent duner and know you'll be coming back quite a bit, yes, paddles make a huge huge difference. Feel free to PM me if you have any specific questions. I'll try to help you out the best I can.
  13. Sweet, thanks for the replies.
  14. I'm sure this has been talked about before. Search couldn't find it. Anyone know of any gas stations in the Henderson area or greater Las Vegas that sell E85? Thinking about adding a tune for it, but want to make sure it's attainable. Also a random, anyone know if just any normal joe can get 100LL from the exec. Airport? Feel free to PM me
  15. Thank you for this post. I literally laughed my ass off.
