  1. What are you wanting to find out? I have a copy of the 2018 expenditures they are as follows, Maintenance $199,515 Visitor services $287,251 Management expenses $35,885 There are other things that are not included in this report ( Law Enforcement is not included) and each category is broken down even more. All the information you asked for is public information, and could be obtained by contacting the Barstow BLM field office. Dumont gets more dollars than the sale of passes generates due to grants and Federal funds.
  2. Katrina told us November but she didn't tell us which November.
  3. The meeting was attended by the usual suspects and a few new faces, but because this was not an official meeting we could not do anything other than give feedback. The cell tower is supposed to be up and running by November. There will be a meeting right after the Cleanup on March 14th (aprox. 11 to 12) to give more people an opportunity to voice any concerns and suggestions. The Junior Ranger program will be present anytime the visitor center is open, if you have small children or not so small people it is a very informative place to stop in and check out. The BLM is getting more staff mainly behind the scenes which will help with some of the things they have wanted to do but have not had the staff. Don't forget this years Trunk or Treat will be on Oct. 26th by Vendors Row.
  4. There is a public meeting at the Barstow Field Office on Tue. the 17th from 10:00 to noon. The public is welcome to attend, If you have any items you would like brought up, and are unable to attend please post them here and I will bring them up for you.
  5. As you are leaving Baker on the left side of 127 Baker Ice has firewood also.
  6. You can't, The date on the Title is when it was first registered. The SPCNS means it is a special constructed vehicle with a vin. number attached by the CHP, The vehicle could have been built and driven for years before it was registered.

  8. The pics were taken at the BLM Barstow Field Office. The Road Groomer can be pulled on public highways just like a trailer so we can save on transportation costs as well as not needing a high cost Operator. This was not bought with fee demo dollars and will be able to be used throughout the Barstow Desert District.
  9. Terry and I brought this up many years ago and as of now I don't think there is a difinative rule on this. Even if it were to be a rule I see a potential backlash with people saying that we are putting thier children at risk. You can allways bring up your concerns by contacting the Barstow Field Office or next time you are at Dumont stop by the Visitor Center.
  10. I think that the road will be able to be maintained much more often. The BLM needs to end the year with a surplus so there is sartup money for the next season.
  11. Other than the unveiling of the new Road Grader a few other things that were discussed were the never ending fight to get the fee structure changed, don't hold your breath. The attempt to get several OHV areas as Congressionally designated OHV recreation areas. This would mean that it would take an act of Congress to close them not just a Judges signature. One more thing that is probably coming down the pike is if you have children riding on their own ATVs, you as their parent have to take a training class, its been a law for some time now, just hasn't been enforced.
  12. It will be able to be pulled by a 1 ton truck so we don't have to bring someone from out of the area to run the grader. The piece on the side can bring in material from the edge of the road. The wheels lift up and the blades at the front smooth out the wind ripples. It will take some time for the people running it to get the hang of it but hopefully by next season the road will be much nicer. We are still waiting for the truck to be set up to pull it. nothing is fast with the Govt.
  13. The new road grader is in, sorry about the bad pictures my cell phone does not take the best pics. Pete if you can fix the upside down one I'd appreciate it.
  14. Are the U-Joints in phase one spline off can do nasty things
  15. one of my friends found a ramp for a trailer so if your missing one let me know.
