SD4X4,

The "big" weekends are just too much of all the wrong things!
I would take an off weekend with a Friday or Monday over any big holiday weekend. The dunes are uncrowded, not chopped up and the people are much more relaxed.

Not really, I have been Going to Glamis for years, Our group changed so many times, people retire their ride or get out of the sport completely only to be replaced by new faces. It's the mood of the group that will decide wether we go on these Busy Weekends.
We just like to go out there when it's quite and relax between the Desert Storms. It's the other side of the Glamis Life we Enjoy the Most. It's Like going to Disneyland and there's no long lines to wait in :wink:

I know that for me personally, the riding is much more important than the partying, and the riding is much better on the off weekends.

Even though many of us don't prefer holiday weekends, many of us still go on the big weekends.

But the best weekends are the off-holiday ones.

Just like some of the best dunes are found during the summer! But there is the little heat factor that keeps many away!

SD4x4 sounds like maybe you go only on the big weekends... whats the draw four you... :?:

for me the off weekends (anyone of them) up here or down in Glamis, are the best... there's fewer people and more open sand to rip... don't get me wrong people are great but to many is well... to much... I guess I like to be a little selfish with my family and friends in the sand :D =======

Just don't tell anybody else the sand is better before and after a holiday...

Off weekends are the best, but I get more time off for the big weekends. That is why they are called holiday weekends :wink:
