What CAN I do in Glamis?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

There's been a lot of discussion, meetings, posts, and talk on both sides of rules and regulations and what we can't do at the ISDRA. Even in recent years we've had ordinances and other statutes come down and "take away" what some would have considered rights or privileges (pallets, tires, bottles, magnesium, comp at night, etc.). We could certainly compile a list of the things that we CAN'T do (especially since there isn't a good comprehensive list in one single place), that said, there are a lot of things that we CAN do at the ISDRA (legally), many of which we can't do at any other federally managed public OHV area. I'd like to compile a list of the things that we CAN do at the ISDRA... help me out, would ya? Especially those that have frequented other OHV areas :thumbup:

We can be harassed by untrained, unprofessional assclowns that have no clue what they are doing.

For starters... it isn't trail riding. I grew up near trails and you had to stick to them, going off trail was equivalent to riding in the closures at G... and would possibly close the entire trail system. You can ride anywhere and everywhere that is open, pick your own line and hope your talent carries you to the next dune. That type of freedom isn't found everywhere!

 

Also speed limits... with the common sense exceptions of near camp and others you can go as fast as your talent will take you. Some OHV areas are faaaar more restrictive

You can't shoot in an OHV designated area :bangin: ...just about any other BLM land you can though. To be honest, I'm not willing to sacrifice an inch of riding area for shooting when we have so many places to shoot in the SW region already. :thumbup:

You can drop anchor anywhere you want (10ft? from the road), the camping spaces aren't designated and I don't have to have a reservation to show up! :hethan:

It's a rule but hardly enforced. And aside from a few loud people I am glad. 

No real quiet hour at 10. Hoot n holler,  laugh, be a jackass etc.

Generally around a camp fire of course.

Brian, a technicality maybe...but you cannot legally shoot in the entire ISDRA. Not even in the blood sacrifice to the phony eco-religion known as the closures.

No, he's actually correct.    They way the law reads is helmets are required for ATVs.   It even says on The BLM  site that helmets aren't required on dirt bikes, but they are recommended.    I've always wanted to go ride around the drags with no helmet and watch the vultures swarm, only to tell them how to do their jobs yet again.

I've always thought it's nice that we can drink in public at the dunes.

But that's only off road. The law still requires helmets on motorcycles operating on the street.

Maybe it's a not so hidden hope that we undesirable types who ride off road will kill ourselves?

You can ride double on a quad but it has to of been made for a second passenger at the factory. There is a Can-Am that has this and I have seen one rolling across the base of Olds a few years ago.  I am sure at some point a LEO stopped him but I did not see it happen.

I think that is the same for the bikes.  If it has factory installed pegs in the back you can carry a passenger if not your rolling solo.
