As you all know, Crawdaddy and I skipped town Friday headed for Primm to finalize the January planned ride for the SDAR group.

Day 1 Recap

Awesome - that about sums it up. It does contain a small section of pavement but there is never a "dull" sight. The terrain its awesome especially as you get close to and leave the Red Rock area.

Ok so I mentioned there was "some" rocks...

As we wrapped up day 1, we approached the hotel and on the edge of the dry lake bed, we saw this:

Curious, Chris and I made small talk with the owner and some how this was the end result

Day 2 Recap

On the start of day 2, I have to admit, I was a "little slow" Not sure if it was because of the day before or the night before but it was nice to start out with some easy going lolly pop trails/fire roads.

None the less, the two day ride in Primm is going to be FUN.

Oh and here are a couple videos:

The rocks aren't that bad........I don't even remember where that one picture was taken???.....might have been in one of the sections we eliminated......

And from my brief taste, I can see where "Land Yachting" could be very fun/addictive if you lived near Vegas/Primm.......no idea where you'd use one if you didnt have a smooth/dry lake bed nearby (access to the lake bed is by permit only and the permits are only issued to land sailors/kiters.......$5K fine if you ride a bike out on the lakebed!)...........I turned into the wind instead of with it and stalled out.......but some of those guys were going ~60mph.......one guy we were talking to had a homemade "Skate Surfer".....he made is own over sized kateboard with a mast on it.......said he took it up to 30mph......pretty cool....

Yes but Chris' outfit doesn't match.

Fashion police take note.

Oh, we noticed. Yessir, we'll be keeping an eye on that guy, that's for sure.

Not his first violation, either.

Also running that bike without the pink streamers and frilly basket. Right there, that's one heckuva equipment vi-o-lation.

[slaps ticket book- puff of dust]

Oh, yeah.

Thanks for organizing this. Looks like fun!

We stayed at Whiskey Pete's this past weekend.....I was able to book Friday/Sat. nights for $102 (total) including tax using Expedia.......I think Whiskey Pete's is less expensive because all the good gambling table action/shopping outlets are on the other side of the 15 over at Primm Valley Resort and Buffalo Bills.......not a big deal, there's a free tram that will shuttle you over there if so desired.......

I also have the tracks starting/ending at the Chevron by Whiskey Pete's each day.....but not a big deal to stay at any of the 3 options available.......

I have a call in to Primm Valley Resorts (AGAIN) to try and get the group rate stuff put together to make it easy for everyone. If you don't want to stay at Whiskey Pete's, then I'm sure you can book online and get a decent deal.

Several years ago I shot a large costume catalog. I was very strongly attracted to one model, especially when she was dressed as a pumpkin.

Very odd.
