She actually ended up doing a lot of duneing with Cycle guy Steve in his sand rail back to the "big" sand. The people that go to the Invasion are all really nice and very welcoming. Male, Female, young ,old.

    Bring your wife. She'll have a good time and finally see that there is a lot of other people that are into trikes as much as you.
    Rider skill isn’t the issue for her. She can ride. I’ve built the 400 to be very comfortable and easy access to power. I just don’t wanna take her to a boys trip lol. Also don’t wanna be that guy who brought his girl to boys night out. Thanks Bob I’ll pass the word. She ride later a lot she’s just never been to glamis is all. I only go every couple years. Mostly Rasor ocotillo and Gorman.

    I know this is scheduled for the whole week bu what weekend do most people show up for ? The weekend before or actual Presidents’ Day weekend? I technically don’t get the day off so I’ll be taking the day on some O.T. ( Own Time) I was thinking Presidents weekend and taking Friday off, but I can swap it for the weekend before.

    As I recall last year the first weekend was the bigest turnout as most of the locals were there and some stayed during the week as work schedules allowed.
    A little quieter during the week but still a big group of us out of town invaders and some hard core locals.
    The hi-mile invaders start leaving Saturday. Gotta work Monday.

    I agree with John, can only relate to last years Invasion as it was scheduled same time frame, the largest concentration of die-hard 3 wheeler group gathered the weekend before President's holiday weekend. As all holiday weekends become a large crowded zoo of sand toys.

    My plans are to travel Wednesday 2/07 to Dunebuggy Flats / Buttercup and setup camp on Thursday same area as last year. Only 2 weeks away.

    Does anyone have a update on whether Duner's Diner will be open? Know they've been under construction for months now. If not then those people who normally rely on the Diner for food or ice will need to plan ahead. Tried calling their phone number answer message says number disconnected. Counting the days down should be nice weather too.
