    Did 90 miles on Saturday in the desert. Amargosa is my second home. Been my go to spot since I was little. Dunefreak and Skinner have been my draw to dumont. But dunefreak just sits and looks at his car in the garage all the time now. #dadlifeLet me know a little more in advance and I’m always down to ride. Saturday’s are easier for me.

    Sounds like fun. Since I played hooky from my business for the last 4 days I can't get away next weekend, but I'll put it on my bucket list.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I did like it, Skinner. Would like it better if it were closer. 🙂 It was about 1 hour 45 minute drive from my house. Put 55 miles of riding in at the dunes. I was actually surprised,how big some of the dunes were and how fast you could roll through a lot of it. I'm glad I threw the paddles back on for the ride.

    I felt the sand was "slippery". Not sure how else to describe it.

    I liked there were really no surprises like witches eyes or weird transitions.

    Nice dunes for sure. Good place to take a noob since plenty is small gentle dunes and some nice big climbs and bowls too. Now if only it were 10 times bigger in area....

    It sure is! Just be careful the transitions are sharp due to the steep dunes.

    Ok, Bunk. I definitely need to get to Dumont next season so I'll be on the lookout for anybody making plans. I'm thinking I will reserve Glamis for Thanksgiving and Christmas/New Year and - just too much of a hike from Vegas plus it seems that half the trips fizzle out because other people back out, dust storms and other reasons.

    I am good for Saturdays and Sundays and holidays - work a regular work week.

    Next planned trip is up into the Virgin mountains maybe first weekend of May - I'll make a separate post about that. It will have to be a Sunday ride because a couple of the guys wanting to go work Saturdays.
