Sort of. We border about 26,000 square acres of BLM. This is why I refer to it as the back 40...40 square miles.

For me it's better than livin in town!

Normally:p

She jumped off and ran to the top of the hill on the first attempt when I stalled. Otherwise she was on the whole time!
Haha! I laughed out loud when I saw that! "Ruh-Roh" and then here comes Georgie running ahead. Apparently she didn't have total confidence that you were gonna finish that climb as well as you did :D.

Looks like a fun time, I really ought to try and squeeze in an afternoon dirt ride here and there myself.

Nice Sandbox! No wonder you have developed good sand riding skills.

Experience has taught Georgie to be suspicious of my riding!

I use to sweat profusely and ride about 5mph when encountering sand. Now I don't let it intimidate me...as much:eek:

the back 40, being BLM is our back yard. i'm glad you get to use it, but the way i see it, the videos are a form of rent. fair is fair.

the sand looks damp: better traction? how much do you air down?

i'd love to see a their-person video of georgie riding with you; how she shifts her weight, jumps up and down solo... great companion you've got there.
mine just farted next to me, and that noise scared herself. she's a pup so maybe i can train her still.

I for one think wet/damp sand is easier to ride in. I would say this sand was 50/50 damp/dry this time of year, but still plenty loose. Hard to tell from the video, but I'm wiggling around quite a bit in the stuff. I'm aired down to around 12 psi.

Video my son took

One I did

And one from sscooter. Can't really see her that good as he's hanging back, but you can tell she's on back.
