Rolling into DUMONT the 27th.

Recommended Posts

Our kids are with the ex’s or their other half family this holidays. 

We’ll roll into DUMONT the 27th but stopped off in Spangler in route. 

 

We took the State trail 7 / RM1444 to the Husky monument and was able to keep the throttle pinned most the way. Only drawback on the X3rs are the Flintstones brakes.  I seriously want to upgrade those if ever  possible. The power is plenty and the suspension gets serious at speed really fun but stopping  one has to be cautious. 

 

Stopped off at the F22 crash site

Some fantastic new memorials have recently been placed at the Husky. Really detailed and skilled construction. 

Word is if you travel west of the 395 have a Cal City sticker. 

We headed to the Joint bar in Randsberg and it was just us and some euro tourists in Rented RVs. 

Neal the owner held court and it is always a fun stop. 

 

The euros were sent on the road with little or no idea how to operate the basic functions on the RVs. So we explain it all and advise to stop off at Walmart and get some holding tank chemical. 

 

Road Bear customers seem to never have this problem and Road Bear rents nicer units. Worth the few bucks more.

I find these routes very fasinating 

Is there camping in the area, as a good staging point?

Is it Boondock camping, we prefer that?

 

Thanks for showing us other options
