Dunes Recap

I know, I’m a little slow getting this posted, but here’s a little recap of our trip to the North Sand Hills in Walden Colorado.

Overall we had a good trip. Weather was great, and we didn’t break anything until the last day. Slacker tore up the front differential in the Blazer, but had a good time in two wheel drive. He also let the kick start fall of the LT250R. My Warrior performed OK. The new pipe I ordered from ebay made a significant difference, but I still couldn’t hang with Slacker’s LT250R or Delia’s Raptor 660.

A big shout out to a few people.

First, Rich. Congratulations on being ‘That Guy’ this year. Every Memorial day somebody tries to take a truck up an ATV chute and slides off in the trees. Rich was that guy this year, took his brand new 2007 Toyota Tundra (with less than 1000 miles on it) up a trail that he had NO BUSINESS climbing. Fortunately he got away with one small ding – no major damage.

Second, a big thanks to Taylor, Ben, Lindsey, Megan, Danny, Kenny and the rest. You guys are good neighbors – we appreciate sharing the Keg.

Finally, I didn’t take too many pictures this year, but here are a few of the better ones.

Motorcycle Jumps out of Deadmans

Deadmans was steep and nasty this year. On Saturday we spent quite a while watching guys jump out of there on dirt bikes. This guy was one of the better ones. Not sure who he was but…

he had a helmet cam and a cameraman following him around. If you see video of this somewhere, let me know.

Vega in Deadmans

As always, some of the big boys were there. This Vega and his partner in his Coupe are ridiculous. Someday I want a truck all paddled up like these.
