  1. #1, The first board member I met, pastor VOR and his 185S. #2, One of the gatherings, 13.5 I think. #3, Opening day of the compound behind the glamis beach store. #4, a couple of gays. We don't discriminate. What goes on in someone's trailer is their own business unless a camera happens to sneak in.
  2. Shutting down the world played its part for sure. But if like I do, you believe that inflation is caused by too many dollars chasing too few goods/services, you can see that printing money that wasn't earned, and giving it to people who didn't create goods or services for it will add to inflation. Your flip side is that there are fewer goods and services to go along with that printed money due to the shutdown.
  3. The original BBS (Bulletin board system) was a school project for a teacher from Brawley. Teacher or principle, my mind is fuzzy on that but his name is Kurt. The internet was way different back then in 1998 or so with email just becoming a thing, no social media, just crude websites. No pics or video, you were just able to upload text to a "thread" of replies to an original topic post. He gained members by placing signs along the 78. All they said was the text "glamisdunes.com" 3 times. All of us original reprobates were drawn in from those signs. When I typed in the site address for the first time, I found a wild place with the two standouts arguing a blue streak being Fasthijumper and Slappy. The site grew and Kurt changed the site over from a BBS to an actual forum, upgrading several times. He started adding moderators to help run the site and then started backing off from day to day operations. The site started getting very big as hobby oriented sites go and we had a bit of a reputation as being loud and obnoxious (Well earned) compared to the ASA (American sand association) website who had been the largest sand dune site at the time and which we eventually eclipsed in size. Kurt decided he didn't want his reputation as principle to be affected by the reputation of glamisdunes.com and started looking for a buyer. Slappy stepped up, bought the site and has successfully owned it ever since with help running the site from completely volunteer moderators and admin. Well, he does kick down a new Funco to each moderator once a year.....
  4. I didn't want any part of the stimulus. I have no debt, a secure job w/ house and live below my means. But there was no way to opt out of what the handout was going to do (Inflation). I didn't know how bad it would be but knew it was going to be bad. I might as well take the handout since I knew I was going to suffer inflation no matter what. Currently in school at 45 years old to get an electronics degree. I don't need the money, I'm just bored. I can afford to pay for the degree since vocational classes are cheap but my employer is picking up the bill.
  5. Cucamonga is high demand but above the 210 and Banyan is crazy. Great neighborhood with a modern house.
  6. Man, that's a rough situation to be in. Manufacturers are mandated to supply parts for a model for 7 years after date of manufacture. Because of supply issues though, and how widespread they are, I don't know if there is a solution. Have you considered used? Is there a way to clean the DPF?
  7. I saw them in the nineties, say 97. I thought they were great. The crowd went nuts. 25 years is a long time though.
  8. We had a cleanup out there the day after those a holes filmed their video on Osborne. They left piles of trash up there. I talked to a female ranger driving a pickup filled to bursting with what they had left including smashed stage lights.
  9. Long travel rails hadn't been around long at that point. There were all sorts of experimental suspension designs from extended VW beams and trailing arms, J arm front ends, and all manner of home build stuff like what that thing might have been. Back then, it was people trying new ideas and it was cool. There were wildly different designs out there, all leading toward where we are today.
  10. Sorry bout the triple posts. The site is lagging crazy for me.
  11. I tracked down an old Nelson racing engines vidja where he has one tank with 91 and another with 116, his fuel management handling the mixing based on demand. I always thought it was a slick setup.
