it's not natural selection when an albulance pulls up and saves the life of the person that nature was trying to weed out.

Honestly, I guarantee you it's just a simple lack of experience and totally misjudging the speed needed to land it where he meant to. It just sucks that once you're in the air, all you can do is ride it out. LOL

wait, post that picture of your wagon doing the sky wheelie off that small dune!!!! LOL That was probably not that far off from an "OH CRAP" moment speed wise! LOL

See, I'm a super ultra big pansy when I know I've gotta drive my truck home hundreds of miles! I'm nowhere near as cool as that raptor dude!

Not, the cooler in the back stayed attached even! LOL

It's not cool if you can't drive it home! The trick is to drive to where the race is, kick ash at the race, then drive it home. Get up Monday morning and drive it to work! That's how it's done! It how they did it in the 60's with the musclecars, and nuthins changed. A MAN drives it to the race and work! A spoiled kids destroys his toys when he plays!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

has anybody been to the salton sea?

Buddy and his family are going camping out there for presidents day, I'm planning to go. not sure if i'll take the jeep, and if i take the jeep, not sure if i'll take the camper or just tent it.

It makes me sick thinking about getting 10ish-mpg. That 600 mile trip will cost me over $200, and almost 275 if i take the camper i think.

Its like i'm throwing a dollar out the window every 2-3 miles i drive.

Last week I drove to SLC, to Vernal Utah, back. In all I drove about 1,000 miles and averaged 12 MPG. I was loaded with a full truck as well as 5 people.

Was that not the point of buying the camper? To use it while camping? But you do make a point with the gas... Ouch $200-$275 for fuel hurts me just thinking about it.....

yes, but that doesn't mean it has to be used every time. i still like having the option to tent it. And we bought it planning to still tent camp sometimes.

This isn't the 60's anymore... Good luck building a competitive offroad race truck that's street legal without being ultra rich! Robby gordon is about the only person I can think of that's done this exact thing in recent times with his hummer. That was only cause to race Dakar your vehicle has to be street legal. His is registered in Az. where everything is legal for the most part.

For example, find me anyway to make our tacoma street legal without any glass, no chance of passing smog and no chance of passing vehicle inspection at DMV.

I'm all for this idea, but in 2013 in offroad racing, it's not realistic. This isn't 1/4 mile drag racing... Technically, my toyota is FAR from street legal and it's not even race built...

Ummmm, from about age 8-24 pretty regularly. If you've heard the rumors, yes, it smells nasty if you get near the water! One of the highest polluted bodies of water in the southwest if not the nation!

Here's some awesome stuff just from wikipedia alone. Do some reading on the salton sea, it's an interesting experiment resulting from an accident! LOL







If you're going to be on the south east side of it, look up "salvation mountain" and make sure to visit!!! You won't be disappointed in the place! It's VERY VERY hippie like but well worth the stop!




If you're going to be on the west side...

Google "truckhaven" though if you've never heard of it. Depending what area you're going to you could be as little as 5 minutes from the trails there. It's where Tierra Del Sol runs their annual event. If you're going anywhere near salton city you'll be in that area. Epic wheeling for everything from stock to insane! You'd have an absolute blast out there in your wagon!!!



Last time I went down there, I took the owners stock rubicon!!! LOL



And wouldn't you know, have to steal parts off my friends CJ5 to keep the new under 20K mile rubicon running!!! (when I lived in san diego I did design work for RCD suspensions... LOL That's the head of their marketing dept pulling parts off his jeep to get the POS JK back to camp!)





Lots of washes...



Another friends YJ out there.





This is the "less crowded area" to camp in during the TDS safari...









Salton sea on the horizon...



stock yo!





I will be taking the expo out there for next years TDS run for sure! It's a really fun time!
