:lol: :lol:

For those that need some additional info here...

Turns out, the driver of the truck pulling this trailer had a little mis-hap in Ocotillo on the way out to Glamis. It happened while going over the brige at the Blue Inn.
Image

Yep, it seems the trailer came off of the ball hitch and slid to a stop behind the truck. But not before the trailer slammed into the back of the truck. Check out the damaged wood... this was the point of impact. Surprised the driver, I'm sure!!
Image

Oh, and the driver, was Mr. Bill with Sandcock in the passenger seat! :P
Image

=============

I spoke to GLF the other night and he said, "no can".
In addition, Slop let me know a while back that he wouldn't be on this one either.
Also, my cousin, jduke is a 'probably'. <--Dude's moved to Borrego Springs now, within 10 minutes of OW. Lucky duck!!!
GW, good to hear about you and your buds. Check out the updated list at the top. :wink:

15 more days 'till departure!
Who else? :P

Won't be able to make this one. Got to take the Mrs to the Moonlight Theater on Friday. Won't be home until late.

I'm planning on going to the ASA meeting Sat.

And most importantly, going to my grandson's 1st birthday Sunday :D

I know you really want me to come so you can see me roll my quad again :lol:

Woody is correct. No can go. Mama is now a stay at home mom. It is a big adjustment financially. Also, we have to go to my folks house in Fresno that weekend. My sister is having a wedding shower up there.

Sorry I wont get to see you guys. Hopefully I will get a chance once or twice to get out there during the season.

Have Fun!!! Be Safe!!!

:oops:

I am glad you guys want me there. Shows the true friendship, I dont have too many in my life like that anymore. I really wish I could go. If some miracle happens and a bunch of extra cash comes our way, then Maybe. The problem is Maria and I (mostly Maria)have been tied to the house since Jonah was born and it would probably be best for my marriage to take her out for dinner and some form of entertainment(ie: movie) instead of going to the dunes. I had to finally grow up and start prioritizing. IF I can swing it in Sept I will, but for now I wouldnt hold my breath.

Thats all I can say at this point.

Sorry guys.

Josh, if you can get the time away in Sept, we can work it out on the $$$ issues. I know a guy, who has a cousin that knows a guy... :lol:
Something to consider, it's a lot less time and money to do a night ride trip than it is to be out there for a whole weekend once the season starts. :wink:

Yep, both for me. I admit, I may be cheating by car pooling to one or both, but I have a feeling I will be driving and not riding... #-o

Josh, we can work out the money thing. I will pick you up, you can eat my food and stuff. Then drop you off on Sunday.

The "I need to spend more time with Maria" thing, your on your own... =; :lol:

Hey, Jason is coming out for this one too. He, Joey, and I may be hanging back a little, riding around and trying to get used to some new mods. Jasons quad is a monster, and he has not riden it in the dunes very much. Joey and I just put on twist throttles, and we think we are going to need some practice with them before we can go balls out.

Expect us to create or stick with a slower group, at least for the first part of the night. Sloppy, its good to hear that you may be joining us again!!! \:D/ By the way, I bought that bolt for you for your engine mount. I will bring it out with me and hope you can make it. Glenn, I hope you come, it would be good to meet you.

Well since I've been up all night for the last three nights, I have a quad, Jason is going, gas is 2.63 a gallon, and there is talk of a slower group, I'm 90% there.

But that would mean no BoD :-k

Ya it works out like that on paper. IF I'm sleeping late and naturaly getting tired around 3:00AM I think it'll be best to keep that scedule for the night ride. I need all the help I can get.

I'm hoping you will take your usual notes and fill us in between rides. :wink:

I was in hopes that this night ride wouldn't detour anyone from going to the BoD Meeting.
In my mind, the meeting is more important than the night ride.

I'm not going to the BoD meeting. I am though 99% sure at this point that I will make the night ride. Still undecided on whether to just drive the Jeep out or load it on the trailer. :?

This will be more of a social call for me than a dune trip. With all quads and very soft Summer sand, I won't be duning the Jeep much. Especially if I end up driving it out there. Gotta be able to drive it home when I'm ready. :mrgreen:

Woody can fill us in on the BoD meeting and I'll just follow behind you in your Jeep. Or we can go try to find olds via the roads, and a run out to comp.

Cool, very exciting! The whole gang will be there!

Jason says that he is looking forward to seeing you too Slop. He says he will probably stick to the hills this ride, he just wants to see what that monster of a "350R" will do with the longer swing arm now on it.

I will bring you your bolt.

I would be going to the BoD meeting as well, but school starts this week, and the only way my schedule works is if I take one of my classes on Saturday. It sucks, but you have to make some sacrifices in order to get that degree done, you know what I mean?

Looking forward to seeing everyone. To bad Sandcock and GLF are going to miss this trip. I need more mentoring from Sandcock, and some goof around time with GLF.

You guys will be missed!!!

I'm really only going because Jason is going. He might steal my skid plate you gave me though GW. I guess he wanted it before it was given to me. Gotta protect that 350. I'm more than willing to take the hit for him.

Jon, you need to pump up the tires a lot more if you want it to float properly. Just having 3-4lbs pressure isn't enough. You need to pump them up to about 20lbs (as if you were trying to seat a bead), then you might have enough for the quad to float. Also, you might try putting an inflatable raft under it, just for extra insurance. Maybe build a fiberglass boat body around it and seal it good, sorta like an amphibian. I know you have plenty of time to do this.

You, on the other hand, better know how to swim! :lol: :lol: :lol:

OUUCH!!! That was fun. Fast rides(for me), some putts, it was all there. Friends I don't get to see that often, friends I see just about every time I go out. About the only thing that could have been better was the humidity. Brandon bought his trailer so the A/C was great to dry off in. I wonder if we would have been any less wet if there was a steady rain.

I have never seen so many critters. Sure the usual Hawks, "stink bugs", and lizards, but an 18 inch Side Winder on Olds Road deserved a turn around. I got the crap scared out of me by a jack rabbit with ears so big I thought it was somebodys legs running thru the bushes. The Yuki found a toad in camp. It lived. They all did. WE all did. I had FUN!!! Thanks for the good times guys.

Ya I missed out on the open BoD meeting but Mike and Robert filled everybody in. It was great hearing ALL the goings on with the dunes, while AT the dunes.

Yeah, that was fun. I missed Tom, because in his absence, Robert made me lead most of the time. That was scary! But fun as well, and a good experience. I hope it wasnt too slow for everyone.

Sloppy, what was the "banned" word that I used?

Mike, are you ok after your little roll??? :lol:

[-X It wasn't a roll... it was a Croissant! And it was ok, but I think the egg & chesse on it made my back a little sore.

Would've loved to stop by however saturday morning while chasing mike330r and crew I tried to pass jchappy's obnoxious paddles and ended up up flying off a dune, having the quad roll on top of me, back on all 4s, I bailed and rolled and slid on my belly to a stop.

May have broken my wrist, minor concussion is almost for sure (bloody nose and temporary loss vision despite nose guard that showed no signs of impact) I also may have torn muscles in my shoulder and neck (and my daily activities are only making them worse). :shock:

Next trip is in september for us, I sense I will be in the rhino and mooching rides in rails due to the injuries. I may be a the glamis dunes compound right near you guys so there shouldn't be any further excuses :lol:

I heard that nrp chased the quad for a bit after he slid on his belly.

He then rode his bike back to pad 3. Did a 2 handed clutch manuever then power shifted the rest of way back to camp.
