    "The Little Dakar at the Little Sahara" (another Bad idea developed by the Tulsa Tuesday Pub Crawl.)

    What: Camping and Hooliganism

    When: 02/16/21013

    Where: Little Sahara State Park. Waynoka, OK

    Why: We have always talked about riding dirt (or dual sport) bikes at the Little Sahara and now it is time to give it a try. Most of us are fans of the Dakar, however none of us can go spectate or compete, so we are rolling out our very own Oklahoma version.

    Misc: This is an open invite to any inmates that would like to camp and ride on the Saturday 02/16. Riding on 2 wheels is optional, feel free to bring your 4 wheeler, side by side, or Mad Max style sand rail. This is a BYOB and BYOF (food) event.

    IN.

    I'll be taking the van from BA hauling one or more bikes. Have room for 5 additional humans + gear, but I'd need to borrow a trailer to manage more than two bikes (total).

    Sounds like a nice idea, remember you have to be able to mount one of those flags our your moto to reach the bar:deal

    My favorite place to ride a 4wheeler:freaky

    Kurt called, said he cannot make it. The playing field has been leveled.

    That was always my favorite place to ride. Best riding there is (IMO.) I haven't been in probably ten years.

    I've never been out there, the thought of deep sand brings back bad memories!! So there must be more than that, or there wouldn't be so many people who like it right?

    Notice how he doesn't launch over the top of dunes. That will be a tough one to resist until we familiarize the area.

    You could always hydroplane the ponds.

    are FLAGs required out there? Are there certain rules established that MUST be followed or are you on your own?

    Flags are required. Little Sahara is state park with on site park rangers.

    Is everyone going to tent camp? Man, I may see if I can bum my brother's Excursion and sleep in the back of it....or borrow his travel trailer. Sleeping in the back seat of my pickup sucks.

    Wow. That looks cool. I'm from Nevada and thought my days of dune access were gone. Maybe not. How's the weather in February?

    Weather can be damn cold that time of year but easy to warm up with good drinks and having fun at the dunes with a fine group of ADVers:freaky Hopefully we will get lucky and have perfect weather. On a plus side it damn sure shouldn't be crowded:lol3

    Get your paddle tires on and get it:ricky

    I'm in unless something goes wrong.

    We went once in February and there were only two other people there. They left early and we had the dunes all to ourselves.

    Just so happens that my "new" KDX came with a brand new sand tire for the front. "What the hell am I going to do with that in Arkansas," I thought to myself. Maybe it was fate all along.

    After reading and posting in this thread, I had to dig out my little sahara vhs tapes last night. It brought back some very good memories. Have fun guys.

    I have a couple of 19" rear paddle tires that I might be willing to loan out to a responsible person.
