  4. 1978 Honda ATC70 for $20 House shopping in West Covina in 2003, came across a Yard Sale. Look around and find an ATC70 in a pile of parts in a far corner of the garage....away from the Yard Sale items. I ask the lady how much for that pile of motorcycle parts, she says "You want that pile of junk? make me an offer". I say $20, she says "Deal". As I carried it out in pieces, Husband comes out the house with a WTF look....she gave him the look and he went back inside. Assembled it back together with a new carb and the SOB ran, still in our collection of toys, kids all have learned on it.
  5. My wife makes Tacos de Papas It's a taco made with left over potatoes, mashed or skillet breakfast country type. Add Cheese and or just chili. It's a use your leftovers cause we are poor type dish, simple and good. I'm not Vegan and only despise them as they are now pushing their Impossible fake-meat everywhere I look. God-Bless American Way of making profits I guess....
  6. What was their reason for the "No Camping" area from Wash 33 to Wash 70? You can ride there, but not camp there. Was this a simple way for BLM to NOT have to manage the long term resident tweeker types that were setting up camp in that area? Why was that agreement/concession made....it's not a Protected PMV area.
  7. Some People are shitty litterbugs. I'm OK with Trash Service and Pit Toilets, both of which should not be huge ridiculous expenses, yes I know i said that for a Service managed by the Federal Government I don't trust people today (In particular the large volumes that now go) to get their crap and or trash out of the Dunes without that service being right there.
  8. ....can be found at Ixtaco Taqueria in El Monte, CA. I want off this planet now please... To the Vegan Millennials that are gonna ruin something as beautifully simple as a good taco. https://www.lataco.com/sip-on-cbd-spiked-aguas-frescas-and-eat-vegan-al-pastor-imposible-at-el-montes-ixtaco-taqueria/
  9. Truth right here, great post of how it REALLY went down. +1
  10. "A lot more" really? I'd agree there would be at best a little more camping area. It's not like there is a maze of extensive kiddie tracks that occupy huge areas
  11. No. Graded Wash Road is more then sufficient ad already costs us more then the ISDRA Special Area Fee should.
  12. It is the original Cross-Over SUV/Wagon
  13. YASSSS! My buddies Mom had the wagon version, it was fun to joy ride in the riverbed The AMC Eagle, not my buddies Mom.

  19. There are a bunch of those...they are ALL GOOD
  20. I'm lucky that where I work and live, its not as bad as what you guys are dealing with....but only a matter of time right? Prisons can only hold so many, I'm tired of paying for those institutions via Tax Dollars. Make Prison conditions worse? Jail Time for Failed Rehab? Let pure drugs hit the streets? Tough questions to find a solution that doesn't still end up with some innocent kid / family member dead as a result.
  21. War on Drugs failed, or did it? An interesting timeline...NPR News July 14, 1969: In a special message to Congress, President Richard Nixon identifies drug abuse as "a serious national threat." Citing a dramatic jump in drug-related juvenile arrests and street crime between 1960 and 1967, Nixon calls for a national anti-drug policy at the state and federal level. June 1971: Nixon officially declares a "war on drugs," identifying drug abuse as "public enemy No. 1." July 1973: Nixon creates the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to coordinate the efforts of all other agencies. November 1975: Colombian police seize 600 kilograms of cocaine — the largest seizure to date — from a small plane. Drug traffickers respond with a vendetta, killing 40 people in one weekend in what's known as the "Medellin Massacre." The event signals the new power of Colombia's cocaine industry, headquartered in Medellin. 1976: Former Georgia Gov. Jimmy Carter campaigns for president on a platform that includes decriminalizing marijuana and ending federal criminal penalties for possession of up to 1 ounce of the drug. 1979: Carlos Lehder, co-founder of the Medellin cartel, purchases a 165-acre island in the Bahamas. Small planes transporting drugs from Colombia to the United States use the island to refuel. Operations continue on the island until 1983. 1981: The Medellin cartel rises to power. The alliance includes the Ochoa family, Pablo Escobar, Carolos Lehder and Jose Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha. The drug kingpins work together to manufacture, transport and market cocaine. The United States and Colombia ratify a bilateral extradition treaty. 1982: Panamanian leader Gen. Manuel Noriega allows Pablo Escobar to ship cocaine through Panama. In the United States, Vice-President George H.W. Bush combines agents from multiple agencies and military branches to form the South Florida Drug Task Force, Miami being the main entry point at the time. In March, Pablo Escobar is elected to the Colombian congress; he gained support by building low-income housing, doling out money in Medellin slums and campaigning with Catholic priests. He's driven out of Congress the following year by Colombia's minister of justice. 1984: Nancy Reagan launches her "Just Say No" anti-drug campaign. In July, The Washington Times publishes a story about DEA informant Barry Seal's infiltration of the Medellin cartel's operations in Panama. The story shows that Nicaraguan Sandanistas are involved in the drug trade. As a result of Seal's evidence, a Miami federal grand jury indicts Carlos Lehder, Pablo Escobar, Jorge Ochoa and Jose Gonzalo Rodriguez Gacha. (In February 1986, Seal is assassinated in Baton Rouge, La., by gunmen hired by the cartel.) 1985: Colombia extradites drug traffickers to the United States for the first time. U.S. officials discover that the Medellin cartel has a "hit list" that includes embassy members, their families, U.S. businessmen and journalists. Mid-1980s: Because of the South Florida Drug Task Force's work, cocaine trafficking slowly changes transport routes. The Mexican border becomes the major point of entry for cocaine headed into the United States. Crack, a cheap, addictive and potent form of cocaine, is first developed in the early '80s; it becomes popular in the New York region, devastating inner-city neighborhoods. October 1986: Reagan signs the Anti-Drug Abuse Act of 1986, which appropriates $1.7 billion to fight the drug war. The bill also creates mandatory minimum penalties for drug offenses, which are increasingly criticized for promoting significant racial disparities in the prison population because of the differences in sentencing for crack and powder cocaine. Possession of crack, which is cheaper, results in a harsher sentence; the majority of crack users are lower income. February 1987: In February, Carlos Lehder is captured by the Colombian National Police and extradited to the United States, where he's convicted of drug smuggling and sentenced to life in prison without parole, plus an additional 135 years. May 1987: After receiving personal threats from drug traffickers, the justices on the Colombian Supreme Court rule by a vote of 13-12 to annul the extradition treaty with the United States. 1988: Carlos Salinas de Gortari is elected president of Mexico, and President-elect George H.W. Bush tells him he must demonstrate to the U.S. Congress that he is cooperating in the drug war. This process is called certification. 1989: President George H.W. Bush creates the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) and appoints William Bennett as his first "drug czar." Bennett aims to make drug abuse socially unacceptable. That same year, Forbes magazine lists Pablo Escobar — known for his "bribes or bullets" approach to doing business — as the seventh-richest man in the world. December 1989: the United States invades Panama. Gen. Manuel Noriega surrenders to the DEA on Jan. 3, 1990, in Panama and is sent to Miami the next day. In 1992, Noriega is convicted on eight counts of drug trafficking, money laundering and racketeering, and sentenced to 40 years in prison. 1991: The Colombian assembly votes to ban extradition in its new constitution. Pablo Escobar surrenders to the Colombian police the same day. He is confined in a private luxury prison, though reports suggest that he travels in and out as he pleases. When Colombian authorities try to move Escobar to another prison in July 1992, he escapes. 1992: Mexican President Carlos Salinas de Gortari issues regulations for DEA officers in his country. The new rules limit the number of agents in Mexico, deny them diplomatic immunity, prohibit them from carrying weapons, and designate certain cities in which they can live. November 1993: President Clinton signs the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), which increases the amount of trade and traffic across the U.S.-Mexican border. This makes it more difficult for U.S. Customs to find narcotics moving across the border. December 1993: Pablo Escobar, in hiding since mid-1992, is found by Colombian police using American technology that can recognize his voice on a cell phone call and estimate his location. He tries to flee but is killed. May 1995: The U.S. Sentencing Commission releases a report that acknowledges the racial disparities for prison sentencing for cocaine versus crack. The commission suggests reducing the discrepancy, but Congress overrides its recommendation for the first time in history. August 2000: President Bill Clinton gives $1.3 billion in aid to Plan Colombia, an effort to decrease the amount of cocaine produced in that nation. The aid supports the aerial spraying of coca crops with toxic herbicides, and also pays for combat helicopters and training for the Colombian military. 2003: In February, three Americans — contracted by the Pentagon to help with Colombia's anti-drug effort — are taken hostage by guerrilla fighters after their surveillance plane crashes. In April, the Illicit Drug Anti-Proliferation Act is enacted, which targets ecstasy, predatory drugs and methamphetamine. 2004: Along with the State Department and the Department of Defense, the DEA announces its involvement in the U.S. Embassy Kabul Counternarcotics Implementation Plan. It's designed to reduce heroin production in Afghanistan, the world's leading opium producer. January 2006: Authorities announce the discovery of the longest cross-border tunnel in U.S. history, the work of what they call a well-organized and well-financed drug-smuggling group. The half-mile long tunnel links a warehouse in Tijuana, where about two tons of marijuana were seized, to a warehouse in the United States, where 200 pounds of the drug were found.
  22. I've never owned a Buggy, but these two guys who have seem to make perfect sense...it is why a place like GD exists.
