    Sounds like going down box canyon? Don't have anything that can handle that sand and lots of street other than big bike, let you know .

    Thanks

    Nice! I live 15 minutes from these trails. I'll be riding trails like this east of Hwy 247 on Sunday.

    By the way, my youngest son Harry does a lot of photo stuff at Hell on Wheels events. He's a Von Zipper guy.

    Just FYI it looks like BLM is putting in lots of posts and the cable fencing is coming very soon

    I have probably met your son before I bet.

    By the way I'm staging near Slash X Sunday but won't be riding Stoddard OHV area. The good stuff is east of the Hwy.

    I am bummed because I just started riding that area about two years ago. A buddy from work lives way down roundup and we stage out of his property.

    Apple valley rules...dumped it on a sandy downhill. What you cant really see is the 8 foot drop into the sand wash in front of me. I think I'm headed back up next week...Weds or Thurs
