    Took off for Glamis.. was supposed to be a bit longer but worked Friday so left friday afternoon. Waited on friends and so head out sat morning to dune some and try out the Midi buggy in the sand etc.
    Pepper took a quick video of me climbing a hill on the back side of a dune to warm up and get ready to go.
    YouTube - Midi Buggy, Glamis Hill climb,


    Then we took off for the day.
    Sorry to say I made it about 14 miles when I had engine troubles. Not sure but one of my pistons is popping. Seperated a barrel or something.. not sure. Motor runs and drives but sounds bad. So back and parked it... Dang...

    But it was awesome and had a blast. I actually hit that hill as we were taking off to dune of course no camera running and after climbing it once had more guts and really punched it and pulled the front way up as I was steering at sky.. awesome.

    Did a couple jumps, transitions from bowl to bowl and dropped down into some other bowls etc. The little buggy handles awesome and was just a blast to drive.. very cool I was just having so much fun. It handled and did amazing.. just the darn motor.. sheesh. This is a fresh rebuild only 14 miles on it at Glamis.. something went wrong there.

    Anyways everyone jumped on quads and had a blast.
    After a other wise great weekend we then came home to rain.. blah.. 78ish all weekend and sunny at Glamis.. wow. nice. Then home to 42 and rain.. bummer.

    Couple quick pics.

    Pepper on her quad with Jason just behind her.




    Pepper and Christine at our ooops.. looks like a good time for a pit stop....


    My buddy and crew chief on his 400 going up that same hill.. it is steeper then the pics can show.. or the video.


    Christine on a borrowed quad normally she is a dirt bike rider but borrowed a quad to ride the same with everyone.. with of course me in the background.


    Pepper not wanting to stop so just doing laps and playing out in front of camp.. she just loves to be riding, racing or playing.. shes fun.



    Well cool thanks for looking hope you guys had a great weekend.

    Here is a short video of Pepper and I riding along down the sand road.
    YouTube - Pepper at Glamis

    It was like the fresh snow.. we had fresh sand no tire tracks all over to ride and make our own tracks.. I love that.. very cool.
