Opening weekend observations & reports

Recommended Posts

Ok. Chitty post. Got to the D on Thursday arrive about 9:30 pm. Looked for DDRstickers for a minute and decided to hang where we are and wait until morning to move closer to DDR peeps. Cocktails ensue ! :whoop: Wake up Friday and survey the dunes. Beautiful ! Wind blown Face dunes ! Smooth as a babys Arse ! My girlfriend and I go to ride. Not even five minutes in I turn around because she is not behind me. I scoot back and she is Fugged up. She topped a hill and it ended in a witches eye situation but bigger, more like a cyclops eye. I get close and realize she is shaking. She totally endoed and got up close and personal with the handlebars. She had the imprint of a soft Tag Grip on her stomach ! Her left hand had total bruising, 3x normal size. Her right knee is purple. We rolled out without going to the meet and greet . Chit ! We left because she was in a bad way. Got home and had some cocktails. She is OK. That is all that matters. Damn it, I missed meeting peeps ! Dumont will be there, my people matter more than anything. For you peeps that did not get to go this weekend I think I have the most expensive trip ever! 5 minutes at $80.00 per minute. Chit! Ok, I am out. I have a few pics and I will post them tomorrow !

That statement scares the chit out of me. If she didn't have on a chest protector she could have easily ruptured her spline and bleed to death right before your eyes. EVERYONE PLEASE. if this happens to you or your friend get to the hospital fast. I know this because it happened to my daughters best friend racing BMX. The doctors at first said that they thought he was ok, but his Dad insisted that he they check his spline and by that time he had lost 6 pints of blood inside of him and almost died. So please be cautious

I am glad to here she is ok, thank God, and sorry your weekend got cut short.

sorry to hear that brother.

on halloween weekend 05, i looked back and didn't see the broad, just as you did. went back a couple dunes and there she was planted in the sand.. she got broad-sided by a couple kids in a rhino. tore her 700r up, most importantly tore her up a bit. she had surgery on her wrist about a year later because of it.

good to hear all is well brother. never stop riding.

It was a great weekend, had a blast out there Thanks to everyone. OGP stopped by midday Friday and hooked up my hauler to tow up. Thanks Brother, Wind blew something fierce Friday night, calmed some in the morning, picked up and calmed to make a great Sat evening. Had much fun around the fire Sat night. Great seeing everyone, look forward to next time...SF Woody :whoop:

What a way to start the season off!!! :whoop::blink::slap:

This was such a great weekend. So many great people, so many laughes, and lots of good dune runs with everyone!!

Weather wasn't too bad considering. The highs were around the low 90's Friday but got the temps seemed to get cooler as the weekend progressed. It was 83 at 1 PM Sunday and felt great! Wind was kickin pretty good Thurs & Fri night, but wasn't too bad during the days. I thought my hauler was gonna tip over Fri night. lol

Dunes were crazy sharp and steep. They almost looked fake! They were difficult to read since they were so smooth, but we made some tracks. :blah:

Comp is JACKED at the top. :ah: HUGE whoops and rollers as well as two BIG witches eyes.

I finally met Mario Gesualdo and family. (The family who donated the buggy to the BLM). What an awesome guy and group of people. :moon: We hung out a few times at his camp and shared some laughes and stories. Thanks for the refreshments, Mario! :whoop:

South Pole meet & greet was a suprisingly good turnout!

Got some adrenaline pumping dune runs in with the crew. Holy crap. Randog and crew are just not right. I love it though. :blah: I had so much fun hanging with you guys. You're a group of true duners for sure. :pile:

My new camp cruiser (TRX70) is da chit!!! :blah: I put some miles on that badboy this weekend. What a cool toy for around camp.

The crazy dave roast was awesome! :news: First we thought he was mexican, then we thought he was a habeeb. :usa: crazy dave nicknames: slurpee duner, habeem car, click click dave, taliban duner, etc etc. God I was laughing so hard. We just kept rollin with the names. :thumb: My face hurt I was laughing so hard. Dave finally had to leave. :blah: Good times Dave...good times...

I was able to meet a few other DDR peeps this weekend. Nice meeting you jackster, gazlay43 and dad, and I think a few others.

monkie was only able to make it out for a very short while, but it was fun while it lasted. She was only there for less than 24 hrs. lol :( She's dedicated though!

What an awesome group of people that we were around this weekend. Thank you all!!! :worthless_without_pics:

Pics and chit to follow. :flatbiller:

Missed a lot of you guys that didn't make it out. :blink:

Sorry to hear about your weekend John :( . Hope your girl heals up quickly. We'll see ya out there soon. :news:

So yesterday after work I said FUGG IT!!!! Rolled out to The D with a few peeps thismorning and got there around noon....Could not believe how few people there were and how smooth and untouched the dunes were!! Friggin awesome!!!

went on a couple good group rides and a few fast solo's.

Thought I saw Dunefreaks Green Machine :bert: flying towards comp with another rail and two quads in tow. Tried chasing them down but just barely saw them crest banshee hill as i was coming through the pass, got to the top and was gone..... :worthless_without_pics:

Went to the meet&greet at 2, but no one else showed up :whoop:

Wish I could have made it out for the whole weekend, looks like everyone had a great time and some great pics!

CANT WAIT UNTILL HALLOWEEN!!!!!!!!!!

glad to hear your quad ran great there randog

wow so much to try to remember

i rolled in wed about 5pm was 105 on the truck thermo unloaded and went on a short flat land ride to comp and back the only other people there was yamakiller (SP) with 2 trailers. got up about 6 and went for a ride found yamakiller with his rhino on the top of comp pulled up and chatted for awhile while watching the sun rise a true dumont moment. crazy dave rolled in a couple hours later and the rest of the camp came in all day. it was a little warm but got cooler every day. some pretty impressive wind storms blew on and off all weekend a couple at night that woke everyone up :ah: was glad i stayed hooked up. was fun to camp with with the randog crew lew stew mark and dave going to have to camp with you guys again. a lot of great rides even one with a large group on a rail ride my hands have the first trip blisters (soon to be calluses) and my a$$ is sore. i had a couple hauler issues AC stopped working and the refrigerator wasn't cold enough easy fixes i think.

:DDRrocks:

heard and seen...........

if you snore im going to punch you in the forehead. pat to dave

randog can do front wheel wheelies in his rail

brice explained the superman :blink:

mary likes cheetos and she shares

freak can rock a honda 70 with 2 passengers

iceman- my new camp name

saturday camp fire was good times i hurt from laughing

when you fly a kite people laugh untell you you let them fly it

cheese-enough said :clown: way to power nap and wake up in time for the campfire

heard over and over "the dunes are weird this year" and "did you see the rollers and bowls top of comp?"

charlie can find every strange piece of junk in the dunes but didnt find my GPS

ready for the next time welcome to the 2008/2009 dune season

Holy cow!! Whatta weekend!!!!!! We rolled in about an hour ago. :DDRrocks: Hit the 127 at 3:30, got home at 8:30. Pain in the butt keepin' 3 motorhomes plus our hauler focused on GETTING HOME!! Not even gonna unload tonight. Took the bare essentials off the hauler, set the motion detector and locked it up for the night. Too tired and sore for much of anything else. (So much for Davey's day off tomorrow, he has his work cut out for him. I'm going to work to relax. ;) ) Got some great pictures also....will share tomorrow!! :D
