The starting line on a day that saw us looking at lighting streaking across the sky for 20 miles and black skies blowing our way! The temperature was 68* at the start! We registered got our packets and Poker card and off to the starting line to check in! The brochure spoke of a 5 plus hour circuit, buy with a small turn out, around 400, and being in our UTVs we did it in 3 and half hours of easy cruising!

The rain had come that night and morning as if a water truck from heaven! The wind did pick up and started to dry things out by the end of the day We had black clouds around us all day and the sun only peaked out in the afternoon for a while as the clouds built back over the Mountains to the west.........

This years course went west from the staging area away from Means Dry lake and covered over 25 miles on many trails I have never been on! This was the 31st annual run!

We did not take all the hard ways, but a few, as they hard ways were designed designed for Rock Crawler jeeps.... But not all! It was a good layout and a fun ride! I only ended up with a pair of threes for my efforts;(

We ended up passing most of the jeeps on the flat spots where they are a lot slower! The mix was pretty good with a lot of Jeeps, Rock crawlers, UTVs, ATVs, Buggies, and Bikes!

Half the fun is seeing all the equipment and rides!



Notice the sign on the left side, "Hard" so you get to watch to see how people climb the Trail, for some it is a real show;)

It is the family aspect that has always been a part of Off-Road for me! On this ride I had my Son and two of my Grandchildren along and was thinking how happy I was to be able to enjoy the Great Outdoors with them! I hope future generations can experience this, but fear the left will close us out of all of it before too long! Please vote to keep our lands open! Vote for a Conservative!

It wasn't that long ago that Breven used to ride with me Double on my Gas tank of my quad, and in my jeep, and yes he lived;) My 28 year old daughter as well, she would fall asleep on the Gas tank of my 500 on long trips! Great family sport, it has been the government that is trying everything to ruin it! They had the BLM out for this one watching the County Sheriff! So who watches the watchers on our dime! The funny part is if the Marine corps takes it who will watch the Live Fire maneuvers to protect the bushes! It makes no sense at all, but we pay for it!

I agree Papa, 100%. I fervently hope it stays as it is. If it doesn't, at least the Marines (my Grandson is in Lajeaune) will get some use out of it. If they just close it, then the tree huggers will get to stare at the rocks and go oooohhh, aaaaah, like it's the 4th of July.

Yeah Spokane I know. I worked next to Camp Pendleton for 28 years, and I still live close enough to hear the big guns when they get frisky. Consider this though, if they turn it over to the Huggers, 100% of the land will be a buffer zone...:rm_thumbdown:

I haven't seen any evidence that either party is fighting for off-road access rights; therefore, it is imperative that the citizens who use and enjoy off-road access - and the businesses that sell off-road products to those consumer-citizens - make themselves heard and lobby to keep areas open to the public. For example, companies like Honda, Yamaha, Polaris, and others should be lobbying Congress to keep these areas open to their customers. It's in their best financial interest to do so, but I'm not convinced they are paying attention. The reality is, if the military wants it, and there is no vocal opposition and lobbying by those who want to preserve off-road access rights, you just won't see any opposition to that by Republicans. So the simple exercise of voting conservative won't get anything done on that score. Since a democracy is not a spectator sport, and politicians rarely deliver on their promises, particularly if the affected constituents aren't vocal, you have to get personally involved if you expect action.
