Glamis After The Rain – No Paddles Needed!

Glamis After The Rain – No Paddles Needed!

With the Covid-19 Coronavirus epidemic really starting to set in and feel real, the sand dunes was a great place to be last weekend. This was the first time I’d taken my kids to the dunes in 2 years, and now they are just big enough to go on dune rides. We had lots of rain the night before, and when it’s storming in Southern California and Phoenix, chances are that it’s bad in Glamis.

Not the case! The dunes were soaked, a light breeze and mid 60’s temperatures made for an awesome weekend. So awesome, I decided not to throw on my paddle tires, and run all weekend with my Tensor 33” hard pack tires.

It was fun! I lost a lot of acceleration, but the huge tires flattened out those ruts, and it was fun to slide the RZR around and drift into turns.Here’s a quick recap of the weekend, lots of people were out riding, and the my family and friends had a great weekend. Special thanks to the Gumm family for the hospitality and drone footage!


Chupacabra off-road back in the desert and we got some wet dunes this weekend mid March had a big storm storming everywhere in the southwest but out here in Glamis it’s amazing conditions having a good time this is a family trip I’ve got my wife and couple little kiddos a two and a four-year-old so first I’m gonna real kind of dune ride with them things are going really well just trying to take some smooth lines and get them used to it no one’s getting seasick ever on a good weekend and so I brought the paddles decided not to run them I’m just running the tensors and they’re working really well out here it’s fun the cars sliding around a lot I can definitely smell the belt the razors working harder to push this through the sand I saw the spare on it but really fun getting loose there’s definitely some rudder turns there’s a lot of people out here doing this weekend even though the weather didn’t look like it was going to be that good so some of the tracks are really rutted but having a good time it’s fun to switch it up here a little out here and it’s probably our last trip of the season for us in Glamis so try to make the most of it get as much riding in as we can you came.
