If I understood you correctly last time Dez you'll drive it to there. Or are you towing it?

I was there last year in February after recovering from my knee replacement. Wasn't sure if I could ride. I flew down and stayed with friends, rode in 2 different SxS's and a Raptor 700 with no problems. This time will be in my GMC truck, 34ft toy hauler and the new Can-am inside. At 4 of us with SxS's and meet at least 2 others there.

Dez, we never heard back on this, how was the trip?
We were still waiting for sand tires for the new Can-Am X3, but left anyway and went to Sand Lake, Oregon for the day and rode around on knobbies. Then got the call the tires were in. Went to Direct Drive in Portland and got them, and Scott said they were going to Florence dunes, oh yeah, I'm in. Rode for three days and everything was awesome. Left there and went to Los Vegas to GTP Off Road where Adam sold me some parts. Then to Glamis for a week, dry, 10* hotter then normal, and dusty at times. The sand was great. Got my shocks tuned by Fox. Can-Am was doing all repairs of broken or bad parts for free. I got a new drive belt, 2 oil change kits, T shirts and hats, all free. Thanks You!! I got stuck once, hi-centered, and the wife got stuck once. Went to Lake Havasu for 3 days and then the other guys left, we stayed for a week. Camped right at the lake, 50ft in front of us. Then started working our way home. A stop in Bend Oregon, Portland, and Vancouver Wa. to visit friends and family. We finally got home yesterday. Around 3 1/2 weeks, temp from high 90's to low 8*. The truck, toy hauler and Can-Am all towed great, 80 maybe 90 MPH. Now it's time for a rest as the wife didn't drive.

Fantastic outing, sounds like you had a great time. Adam is a pretty cool cat, we stopped in to visit him a few years back at his shop when we were driving through. Glad the maiden voyage was a success!
