Nice pics. More info on your bike though please. It looks modern with the disc brakes and maybe even carbon frame but then it almost looks like a full-rigid which I haven't seen in quite a while so I'm confused.

I used to bike a lot, not so much anymore but I still have a thing for bikes.

Carbon fiber frame/fork 29'er. I used to ride full suspension but wanted something that I could ride on road, and off, because I do a lot of both.

We stopped about 1/8 mile from the boulders at the end. I'd rather walk than listen to a diesel[emoticon]

A great location and an excellent report with really good photos. Thanks for putting it together. I'll add it to the trip reports sticky the next update I do.

Love the dune driving.

Great pics of a few areas on my bucket list. I'm also digging that camper you have.

Yes, a very good trip report covering a lot of territory. The "Indio Hills" look like the Mecca Hills and no, you don't really want to camp your family there.

Between you and Nolan doin Borrego you're makin me want to go back too. When I first started going you could still catch fish in Fish Creek. When I met Peg Leg Smith he had two legs. And Fonts Point didn't exist yet. Fonts De Leon was on a health kick down in Florida somewhere. Truly though, we used to camp right in front of the mud caves of Arroyo Tapiado with big ol bonfires, listening to Pink Floyd's Ummagumma.

Nice pics all around, really nice to see a tc in the Imperial Dunes. If you wake up one morning and your camper's not on your truck, do NOT go to Mello Mikes house. It will definitely NOT be there.
