    Now that the dust has settled, get those photos and stories up before your memory settles as well! A great time was had by all. We all saw old friends, made new friends, rode great dirt roads, inhaled the best desert dust, broke parts, learned new skills, and kept the nOOb spirit alive! :freaky :clap

    awesome job by everyone!

    thanks to all the participants, volunteers, sponsors and Panamint Springs Resort. can't do it without you.

    about 230 -240 participants happily rode, camp, ate, drink and sleep; this went on for 3 days!

    fun time in the california desert. 3 world travelers presented their adventure to aspiring riders. really cool to have them!

    and the finale....the saturday night raffle was a blast!



    hoping our donations to these group, though not a lot will provide them some funding to continue fighting for our cause.

    $1,500 - Blue Ribbon Coalition
    $1,500 + $300 - Stewards of the Sequoias
    $1,600 - California Trail Users Coalition
    $500 - California Off Road Vehicle Association + an equal match from Inland Empire 4wheelers

    i also put aside $$ for the Angeles National Forest ADV Volunteers.

    i will continue to sell the 2015 DVNR tees until they're gone. your $ will buy lunch for the volunteers.
