  1. We saw that Rzr out there the Saturday after Thanksgiving, looked like it hadn't been there long when we found it. It's a dynamix and was stripped of all the wheels, electronics under the dash, and seats when we came across it. We figured an insurance claim, but it definitely has lost a few more pieces since then.
  2. Awesome!! I have been searching for something like this for a while now! Where can I go to get more info/order the system?
  3. Would this work for home use? We are about to move to a new home with no internet providers other than dial-up or satellite, which we have tried and is terrible. I have been looking in to using a phone as a hotspot through a router but if this would provide unlimited/unthrottled internet for $360/year I would be very interested! I am in South Carolina if that would make any difference.
  4. I'll be honest, I saw this on the front page and clicked on this thread to figure out how you turned some kind of transmission in to a dinette seat/bed for an rv. I'm not sure if I am more embarrassed or let down about what I saw vs what I pictured in my mind, either way, my brain isn't fully awake. Good luck with the sale, they look like they're in great shape!
  5. Ok, I am not trying to argue or make any sort of objectionable point, I simply have a question. Occasionally my mother will fly out and rent a car to come ride around with us for a couple days. She never stays overnight in the washes (camping is considered a 2-star hotel to her), but she gets there early and leaves after dark. We have always bought her a pass for the couple days shes there, but if she parked in the center line at vendors and rode with me back to camp (in the rzr with an out of state sticker and both of us wearing helmets) would she get a ticket? Also, someone mentioned the lookout is permit-free, I never go there, but is that true? I have been coming to glamis since '04 and am still learning the rules (or maybe the BLM keep making them up, haha). Thanks everyone!
  6. You can only fight "traffic" tickets by mail, a pass ticket isn't considered traffic, or at least mine wasn't. If it is a non-traffic ticket then you either have to pay it, or show up to your arainment date and plead guilty/not guilty and go from there through a massive pile of BS. I went through all of this earlier this year... It sucks. I agree that the BLM is WAY overstepping their duties, the harassment has gotten extreme, and the passes are overpriced as well as legally questionable, but thats what the price has become to play in glamis. We complain, but every person here still goes out there and deals with it. I drive 2400 miles every year to deal with it, and am excited as ever for Thanksgiving, live and learn and cross your fingers you get a nice ranger randomly walking into your camp.
  7. They got lucky, I got a $455 ticket and super-searched for an hour because my pass blew off my dash, I would have gladly bought another pass for $50. I know it sounds like harassment but it is how they do things now and it could have been a lot worse.
  8. Just wanted to finalize this whole ordeal in the hopes that it might help someone in the future. The citing officer (Alex Stewart) and I both showed up to court, both gave our account as to what happened, and the judge said that I was in violation of the law as the permit wasn't displayed as stated. Luckily, he said that because I did have the permit and basically things happen, he would drop it as much as he legally could which was down to $200. If this happened again and I lived within driving distance I would fight the ticket, otherwise this whole event was a HUGE waste of time and money. Also I have been stuck at the San Diego airport for 20ish hours so that isn't helping. Anyways, I'm done with all this, live and learn and I hope that maybe this will help someone in the future. Thank you all for your help/support. I still can't wait to get back on the sand (with a permit on the rearview mirror)!
  9. So it turns out it was just the arrainment date, I got there early, had everything ready, and was fully prepared to defend myself but all I got to say was not guilty and now I have to come back out March 8th. I can understand why people just pay this stuff, they drag it out so long that it is just tiring, or maybe these red-eye flights are wearing on me. Either way I'm worn out.
  10. I figured that it had been turned in since I got a letter in the mail, but you never know with the BLM, trust no one! Yes, I am from South Carolina, and I am able to fly for cheap so it isn't as big of an issue to fly out and rent a car for my court date. As a bonus, there aren't any afternoon flights home so I get to hang out with a buddy at his suspension shop in San Diego for a few hours, so there's that I guess.
  11. Thank you for this, I do plan on taking the citation as well as the letters they have sent me stating that it is MANDATORY I show up, but I will not let them know I have any of it unless I need to and definitely will not let them have any of it. As much as I would like to speak and argue about it, I honestly hope no one shows up and it's just dropped.
  12. Hey everyone, I have stayed off here and tried to keep all this off my mind for the last few weeks but I am flying out to san diego and driving to brawley Thursday night/Friday morning. I have tried to contact the DA and they have no record of the citation, either because the blm hasn't turned it in (they apparently have a year) or because it isn't a serious enough offense to be in their system, they weren't sure which. I have the vehicle code on obstructed views printed out and a screenshot from Google maps printed to show where I was. I am probably going to have to pay the ticket in the end, but I'm sure as hell fighting it the whole way. Thank you all again for all the help with everything, I will FOR SURE let you know how it goes.
  13. The offficer was BLM from CA, I actually have his business card but would rather not post any names or info until this is all over. The ticket states "no permit displayed", which I will admit that I was fully in violation of, but I feel like the sentence is a little harsh for the crime. Either way, I would rather have to pay more than just the ticket and get the chance to fight it than to just bend over and take it. Whichever way it goes I will definitely let everyone know how it ends up. I hope everyone has a good Christmas!
  14. I have pretty much decided that I am going to show up for court, if I still have to pay it then at least I tried. It is at the brawley courthouse so I don't think it's federal and I'm pretty sure hiring a lawyer might cost more than the ticket. I am just going to show up with receipts and vehicle codes and as much info as possible. Thanks everyone for all the help and support so far, if you have any suggestions or any recommendations please let me know. This has been a great site and I am so glad I was finally able to sign up!
  15. I called the Brawley courthouse (the people there were surprisingly nice) and the guy I spoke with went and checked and was told that because it is a non-traffic citation, trial by declaration is not possible. the officer drove over and asked if I knew why he was there, I said I have my permit right here, grabbed it from the front seat and held it up as he was looking under and around my truck. I was with my truck/camper the whole time, aside from when he searched the truck, I consented as I had nothing to hide and hoped he would be easy on me. I tried to be respectful and courteous to both officers the whole time. The other officer who was asked to stand with me (I assume to make sure I didn't attack anyone or something crazy) was a really nice guy, he talked to me like a normal person and didn't seem to care about whatever I had done at all.
