Good..... They do it pretty much everywhere else on BLM lands....why not Glamis? 

Yep. Hopefully they will also enforce the no fireworks rule, dogs on a leash, glass in the dunes, green sticker registration, no generator after 10pm. Cause all the rules in Glamis are important right?

What'd I miss? Were the elite of Entitlement Estates asked to leave? Did they have to leave the ISDRA? Or just get off Roadrunner? Are they slumming it down on pad 3 for a bit? Or, dare I say it, did they have to go to the washes for a week or two? Oh the horror...

 

You weren't there with firefighter Steve or Air Boom Ron? I would have loved to meet you. Steve and Ron came over to say hello. Why didn't you?

So what’s the nitty of the gritty? What happened to make the roadrunner folks clear out?

A bunch of Karen's complained on FB and other social media. BLM came through a week ago and said we all had to leave by Monday Nov 29th because we've been camped at Roadrunner too long. We asked when we could come back and they didn't have an answer.  

Just to have an understanding of the 'rules' we called the BLM El Centro office today. I asked if I'm in ISDRA and reach the 14 day limit and leave and my son comes back the very next day in my RV what will happen? They told me it will be considered a 'new' trip to ISDRA.

So there's that.

I got to think some of those guys in the estates are hard working dudes. Down to earth and humble. Would never come on a glamis forum and blatantly give the finger to other duners.

You can tell I'm not a baller from the shear point that I don't understand why people get pissed about having to follow rules that are set for everyone, not just us peasants. I stopped going so much after getting screwed and pinned back together, but honestly after seeing all this BS I'm glad. Everyone used to go to have fun, now it's turned into a "my dik is bigger than yours" contest on every level. Eff all that. You guys can duke it out for that "prized space"

I for one, find it hilarious (and sad) that some people are ABSOLUTLY THROWING A FIT that they have to follow the rules.  Whining and crying that other rules need to get enforced like that would change peoples mind.

:rotf:

If leo's see you throw a bottle they will stop and give a ticket. If they see you throw trash they will stop and give a ticket. I support them giving tickets for ALL the violation they see, Ghost parking on Gecko and camping for the entire season is finally on their radar screen. My biggest issue is what took so long? I feel there would be no issue if they had enforced this from day one.

We are supposed to be civilized to the point where we don't need to be watched 24/7 and can follow the rules so everyone can enjoy the dunes.

We usually go down to 23 or 24 now... quiet and not packed or dusty. I don't mind the drive down either, the drive back on Sunday does suck though :lol:

I don't know who Fire Fighter Steve and Air Boom Ron are. We've met though. I'm the guy that came down to your camp about a year ago looking for info on the Funco that your buddy Bill was selling. You'd just given him a fuel filter. Hell, I've even referred a few friends to you for some work. Based on your posts here and on Insta you seem like a straight up guy willing to help out peeps when you can. But you just get hung up on this one issue.

I mentioned it earlier, but perhaps it bears repeating. Yore strategy of trying to tell people to just shut up and mind their own business is flawed. 

Personally, I don't give a flying eff about where and for how long you and the citizens of Entitlement Estates camp. I haven't complained to the Rangers, I don't go on Facebook and start complaints, and I don't start threads here about it. The only time I comment about it is when you come on here and try to tell other people to shut the hell up and mind their own business. Who the hell made you the "Fact Checker" for posts about ghost camping?

If we can't ALL leave our rigs out on Gecko for the season, then why should you and the good citizens of Entitlement Estates be able to do it?

You wont get there unless 4wd and can drag a trailer across long streches of sand with a slight uphill climb.

I used to camp @ Wash 40. There was a ramp from Ted Kemp rd over the tracks right to the spot. I like visiting the peeps at the end of Gecko, I like leaving after a visit better, too much going on. Carry on…

I miss camping at Gecko.. access to the big dunes.. . great sunsets, but my group is like Romper Room and we post around a kiddie track Wash 10-13. Nice having a small 5th and a 4WD truck. No fighting for a pad when you can camp in the sand.

If I move back to a V8 sand car, no way I'll be camping in the washes.. those little dunes get old quick when we sometimes camped there.

OK, I need to focus... leaving for Kauai tomorrow a.m.

See y'all in the sand 12/28 ish.. you can 'duke' it out then

You have a great spot my dude, I know exactly where it is.   Our group is all 4x4 rigs that get off the road and camp in the sand also, its so much better.

Okay, here comes the unpopular opinion and controversy, but I think that's what this thread is for, right? 

Personally, I do wish they'd enforce the Fireworks rule at least somewhat.  Just like other things in G, it's escalated and escalated 'til it's just gotten ridiculous.  It's every damn night.  It doesn't matter if it's a Wednesday on an off-week in Oct it sounds like a warzone all damn night. 

I'd say about 50% of people that go to G have dogs, and about 90% of dogs hate fireworks.  It makes it miserable for those people, and/or they just let their dogs suffer.  

Honestly, it's one of the things that has soured Melissa and I on spending the amount of time we used to in G.  Now, on New Years, I get it.  We just make sure we're not there for NY, or at least Melissa and the dogs aren't.  But it's every single night.  It gets to be where we know we can't walk the dogs or take them out to piss 'n chit after the sun begins to dip.  

Also, people don't even take 'em out of camp anymore.  I've done plenty of fireworks at G and Pismo, but we rode down to the canal or rode a dune in back when I was doing that.  These days people light 'em off right in camp and don't give a chit about burning people's chit.  

 

 

Okay, that's my unpopular opinion/rant over, and I recognize I'm a massive hypocrite cuz I got drunk last season and told my buddy to shoot fireballs with his McLaren (though, I did walk around RR the next day and apologize, lol).  Let the drama ensue...

Not unpopular at all I would say! Hell I can't stand it at home after about 11:00 on 4th of July but don't say anything. But when chit is still getting fired off at 3 and 4 am...EFF YOU!!!!!
