If you want to do it to say you've been there then that would be the "why". It's fun but not Glamis fun. I think it is about less than half the size of Dumont. Yes I run just paddles, there are however miles and miles of dirt roads that you can take from valley to valley to explore. It's only a...
Had an awesome time with @Tahoe540 at Sand Mountain NV for Easter weekend. Had a front hollow spindle pinch nut keep coming loose and ended the weekend with a punctured rear paddle. Dam fun weekend for our crew.
I have an older Lowrance in the Tatum it works but hardly use it up here. Once we venture to Glamis (hopefully fall this year) that's when it will definitely be used but I might be upgrading it to that newer Elite version when I do the teardown this summer.
San Felipe is my favorite of all of the towns I've been to down there. I've been telling the wife we need to head down there for a week and just chill. Looks like you are all having a great time so far.
Keep shopping and be ready to jump on a deal that pops up. I looked all over the west coast for a toy hauler that I could fit the Tatum in. Lots of over priced ones out there but I waited and got a good deal on the one we picked up a few weeks ago.
Never got into the muscle cars as they were out of my price range, I did have a pretty fast AWD eagle talon with a big turbo, cams, etc. Took it to Sac a few times and whooped up on quite a few at the street races and at the track.
There was a guy at Sand Mountain Saturday in a new F250 Tremor (7.3 gas) that followed a group of us, I was in my Tatum sand rail we were all over the dunes. Guy had some big huevos, the only place he couldn't go was all the way up Comp hill.
Thank you, I looked and looked at hundreds of toy haulers online and this is the one that I kept going back too. It all worked out just perfectly. The dam thing tows amazing as well even up from Sac (sea level) over Donner summit just over 7K' elevation.
