Man did I miss Dumont! It’s been a year since the last trip, and this one was one for the record books! Very warm, highs in the mid 80s and never got cool enough in the evenings to have to put on long pants. Bonus! No wind! I had a solid 12 person group and ate like kings, partied too late but didn’t let that stop us from getting up at 7:30 every morning. I’ve been a lifelong dirtbike rider and have only experienced the dens on two wheels…..until NOW….picked up a ‘19 XRC 2 months ago & this was its first time in the dunes. Decided not to commit to paddles yet, wanted to see how it did in four-wheel-drive with tensors. Needless to say I would love to go to paddles but the car performed very well and I managed not to do anything too stupid but definitely had a few pucker moments, I think my buddies had to go change the shorts lol 

 

We had five dirt bikes including a recently fixed up CR 500 that I got to ride a few times and had a blast! The dunes weren’t too busy, finally made it by a vendor row to check out all the goodies and picked up a few new flags.

 

Seemed like a lack of sand cars and buggies there from what I remember in previous years. Really cool to see the teeter totter over at veterans hill, but that Buoy that cemented in the middle of the flats could probably use more reflectors as it isn’t necessarily in a predictable spot like the north and south poles. 
 

We always camp at the little dunes because we like to go into death Valley or go over to explore some of the funky old cabins to the west. Warning there’s a nasty rutted out super soft spot and people were getting stuck but usually not for long. Scored some free wood but of course left plenty of free wood afterwards when we left yesterday. Can’t wait to go back! Here’s some pictures

Thanks for sharing! 

It was definitely toasty out there this weekend. Glad you got back out there! Nice X3! You'll love it, definitely a different ride then your bike! 

Ain’t that the truth!! Alternated between the helmet set up and headset/phones, Really helps because dammit my car is so loud! 🙉😹 Thank you, I am really liking it, glad I’ve got the belt sensor or I’m sure I would’ve toasted one out there just going crazy and having fun like I usually do on my 4 stroke. Even caught a little bit of air and definitely made some of my riders scared 😱🤟
