Great Idea - I'm in Southern O.C. around Irvine. We share our play time between the desert and Havasu. A few pics:

Hi Steve,great pics.My 34 yr. old daughter likes to go to the dunes with her friends too.In fact she went just a couple of weeks ago.She said she crashed while riding a quad and got banged up a little,sore muscles and butt..she's OK now.
We go to California City,north of Edwards A.F. Base a little ways.Our camps pretty much look the same...covered wagons in a circle style,and the group campfire in the center..lotsa fun.

Gary

remember,it's not if you crash,but when :lol: that water looks refreshing

I'm in Torrance. 'Usta spend a lot of time in the desert on dirtbikes in the 70s. Then spent quite a bit of time out there 5 -18 yrs back on horseback. Lately, I spend a little time out there chasing chukar and quail.

Sorry, no pics. I'm new to the board in the last few weeks. Got a new 08 Vmax w/NHT pkg a couple weeks ago and love it except for the tune (lack thereof) and front shock damping can't keep the frontend from bobbing.

The pic below is from 1978. That's me in the middle and my plane on the right. I landed on the paved road between 14 and Randsburg, right alongside Cohen dry lake. That was some fun! :rolleyes:

I used to live in So Cal (Hence my screen name). I grew up in Norwalk, and most recently lived in Long Beach. I got the hell out as soon as I could, it's not somewhere that I want to raise a family.

I'm in Cerritos which is on the LA/OC border. I do lots of day trips to cajon pass(15/138) to ride my dirt bikes and play in my truck.

Hey I didn't see this thread until now. I live in Eastern Ventura County. I work in Norwalk well thats where I start my day anyway then drive all over OC and out to Corona.

We race dirtbikes in Lucerne Valley and up near Ridgcrest. We play ride in those two areas as well as Cal City and El Mirage and practice at some tracks like Milestone, Comp edge and Racetown. I sponsor an MX series over the summer and am a co-sponsor of the Big 6 Grand Prix Series.
