50mins is making good time. :oops:
Ive done Havasu to So Cal once. It’s a game changer. I was all in on getting my pilots license until i checked on maintenance/hanger etc. Holy crap. It made the annual on my boat look like chump change.

Steph got a ride out not too long ago. She did the same thing. Started looking for what we would have to do to get on the program. Didn’t take long to realize that the 4hr drove isn’t that bad. It’s a whole new level of badassness.

Speaking of. Saw this family on Wed heading on family vacation. Who doesn’t bring their dogs, flight attendant and whole family on a Jet. :oops: :cool: There’s always a next level. This one was legit.

That 10000 went quick😎

I haven’t spent a dollar… “yet” 😳. Stacy told me to go buy a different side by side if I can find a good deal on one. So hopefully someone has a used car at the show. 😍

A few times ago I was here there was a guy selling an overland RZR turbo for pennies on the dollar. When I asked why the employees just said it was time to build something new..

I circled back later to buy it and it was already sold. It was a turbo RZR with another 30/40 into it and he was selling for 25k.

Few takeaways from today.
- Sand show is 10x bigger than the boat show. Unreal how much is out there and how many people to see it.
- There weren’t a ton of show deals.
- The level of custom is off the hook! Super impressive to see what people can do.
- Shit is expensive! $65,000 for a new can am with what i would say are moderate upgrades. Looks cool but not even close to bullet proof. Stock radius rods and a-arms.

These are “BOXO” tool boxes and tools. They are Chinese boxes but I gotta tell ya, if you want to dress up the garage and get a ton of tools in a nice package fir a relatively decent price I’d highly recommend checking them out! You can switch the drawer handle colors on the fly to match your boat / SXS etc..

Tools felt nice!

Anyone have them?

Partying with rdp members at the speed booth! And yes LOF was signing autographs! Big Doug dropped some beer on me.. no biggie deal. Two minutes later some dude came around the corner and dropped an entire beer onto my shirt and pants.. 😳. Kinda interesting walking around the show soaked the rest of the day.
