The dunes are a bit tore up out here, but we're still having a blast. We just got back from a run with Donnie, Smokin Al and Brian. My car is soaking it up pretty well. I don't think I'll even attempt the quad. The camp area is empty and there's just enough people here. The weather isn't even that bad. Good times!

I'm still sorting through pics and doing some editing. I should have some up maybe tonight, Aaron.

This was sort of a last minute trip for us. We were going to be in Glamis with the rest of our crew, but after being denied Friday off we figured it wasn't worth the drive for 1 solid day at G. So off to Dumont we went and met up with our friends out there.

It ended up being a great trip. New Years Eve was fun as all hell. Early in the night we hit up comp with a big pile of firewood. All of camp joined us and we partied for a bit before the New Years festivities. Then back at camp we enjoyed multiple bottles of Champagne, some kickass homemade chili dip, and plenty of cocktails all night. The camp shananigans and mortar bandits kept most everyone with a sense of humor laughing their a$$es off. :laughing: I wish I could have been their when John couldn't get away from the fire fast enough and took cover under a trash can. :lol: :lol: I would have paid money to see that!!! LMAO

On Saturday me and Anna, AL T, campidiot Brian, and Donnie went on a few great buggy runs. Those dunes were tore up pretty bad, but it was still really fun. You had to be really careful which razors you chose to crest. The recent rain had made some huge holes and nasty formations at the tops. The lines weren't too bad though out there. There were plenty of ruts, but the sand slide factor was still there. You just had to be careful because it could hook at any second. All in all we still managed some fast paced dune runs and had a hoot. It's too bad the rest of the Randizzle, LouB, Stu n krusty crew weren't there. Whoa, that's hard to say but kinda flows. :laughing:

Weather wasn't too bad. Mostly in the 40's all weekend long with no wind. Those runs were super cold though when we were haulin a$$. My hands were freezing even with gloves on!

Nobody broke anything although Donnie started having trans/ clutch issues again :( and I think I have a blow off valve issue now after all the times I backfired bouncing off the limiter on comp hill. :dope: Oh well. I'll figure it out.

All in all it was another kickass dune trip with some awesome friends. Can't wait for the next. I hope to make it out MLK weekend but we'll see. :yiah:
