    So far no noobs are interested so stay tuned to the thread as the riding location may change slightly, but the date will stay Halloween weekend.

    If no noobs sign up then we will practice the skills on the trail. including the skill of consumming 12oz'er

    nOObs we can practice any type of skills that you are interested in, but I hear alot of riders expressing a desire to learn to ride sand and whoops better. Here is your chance and also a great campout as always.

    I will have a stove, cooking gear, and an ice chest for all to use, so if you want to ride out this will make life easier.

    I hope you all can make it, so far no noobs have expressed an interest so the training might just need to be adjusted.

    nOObs
    the type of dirlls can be adjusted to fit your desires, but I'm always reading that sand and whoops are something that you want to get better at, so here is a chance to practice to skills and also have a fun campout as well.

    I will be bring a stove, cooking gear and an ice chest so those that are riding out, this will make it easier.

    Thanks for bumping this, Charlie!

    I'd be down for any kind of improvement in that shit called S A N mofo'n D :lol3. If I can stay upright in the soft shit for more than 50 yards at a time, I'd consider it a miracle. Now if I can actually learn to steer in the shit, I think I'd shit myself :D

    When's the date? First page mentions April something but now I see Hallows Eve.

    Duy, the thread started last year. The current dates are Friday, Oct 29 thru Sunday, Oct 31. Make sand your bitch this year! Hmm, Rob's coming out, fill that super size tank, we may end up in Utah, or at least the Mojave Brewery. :lol3 :slurp

    Where's the rest of the crew from last year? :ddog

    Well I hope you can make it, I know it's a busy time with the AZ ride and then the Jimmy Lewis class 2 weekend later, but it's the only weekend that I got free to ride until after Thanksgivings Day weekend and then I don't if I'll get to ride and camp until New Year at that.

    Thanks for your regards for dad's b-day I'll let him know.

    Hey Charlie,

    Going to plug those in. So do you normally go up above Teagle wash near where Searles Station Rd intersects Trona Rd.? Or down towards the tracks?

    I'll find you either way. Still planning on riding out Saturday, camping then riding back Halloween before noon.

    Normally we camp off Steveson Mine Rd - the second set of coordinates, there is a kids track there and it always open, but dad wants to try for the rocks - we've camped all over the place out there - sometimes others get to your planned spot first move on to the next - trailer bunk open we can bring most any thing to help lighten your load- PM me

    Rob
    Soccer? Ride time is over - club or Ayso? Advice given - go with the coaching

    Bob
    wish it would work out so we can ride, but no go - can't make your holiday break ride, but will be out there somewhere - family & freinds yearly ride
