2010 Lake Havasu Club Outing Don and I would like to thank everyone for coming to Havasu for the outing. I think every year it gets better. Being on the Lake with great friends and new friends. Eating out, playing practical jokes, having water fights in the swimming pool (that be would be Scott's fault). And especial to my little adopted grand baby Allison. She is so special.

Jim and Nancy PJ, Melissa and Allison Scott and Sandy The Four Hagens Cindy and Dave Gary and Yang (Young) Bambi and Jim Irma and Art Bob and Lori Jeff and Lavon Jason and Christal Walt Hope I didn't leave anyone out. We look forward to this outing every year. (Kris and Doug better come next year) Especially having people from out of town, like Jim and Nancy showing us we had a great place to eat. It's called Schlotzsky's. In the 3 years it has been here, we have never ate there before. I'm telling you, the sandwiches were absolutely great. -The Ford's

Hello all of my adoring fans, it’s me, Allison. I have been a busy baby this summer. My parents took me across several states up to a really pretty place called Utah. It took us two days to get there and we stopped in the middle of the Sahara desert on the way, at least it felt like it, it was really hot! Of course they have dunes there, but they have pretty trees there like at Grandma and Grandpa’s. They also have a nice campground that I got to ride all around in my big yellow wagon. Since it was a long trip, I brought lots of people with me. I had two Grandpas, a Grandma (since Grandma Nancy had to work) and even my Aunt Brianna. I also got to play with Don and Shirley

(my adopted grandparents), Kris and Doug, and my buddy Walt. Walt went for lots of rides with me in the truck so that we could go to town and get stuff. We went to lots of different places to eat, and I got lots of different things to go with my baby food. Grandpa Jim and Walt got cookies in town too, and they shared them with me and they were yummy. I got to walk around the hardware store and I found a treasure (my very own PVC pipe fitting). Everybody else was really excited about everything being 20% off, but it looks to me like I got the whole thing! Walt got a whole garden hose, and daddy got some nuts and bolts, and it looked like they were all there too. Mommy and Daddy took me one day to St. George because we needed a tire for the trailer. The old one didn’t work very well since it was in a whole bunch of pieces. Besides a tire, I got four new pairs of shoes. Because Mommy and I really missed our favorite store, we found a Target to walk around in St. George. That’s where I got my new cowboy boots! We got to see lots of animals on the trip. There were lots of Bambies in the fields and on the road between Cedar City and the dunes. One was even sleeping next to the road, I don’t know how it could sleep with all the cars going by. It looked like it had been in the road… We also saw a sleepy porcupine in the road to. Daddy made a comment about hunting with Doug. I also got to play with Don and Shirley’s puppy Tara. She’s nice, and my size. One day we all went to breakfast at a bird restaurant. Then Mommy kicked Daddy out of the truck and made Grandpa John drive and we went through Zion to lunch at a big log cabin and they had bears inside and a giant Moose, and I ate spaghetti. On the way to lunch, Grandma yelled Buffalo and Grandpa swerved off the road to see, but all we saw were ponies. I think Grandma got confused. Then we went going again and we found the Buffalo and she was right. There were so many fun things that I can’t remember them all with my little head. I’ll have to go back again next year to remember them. I did get to go swimming when we stopped in the Sahara desert on the way back home. It ended up being lots of fun, but I was a little scared at first. Aunt Brianna showed me I wasn’t going to drown, and it wasn’t a bath. Speaking of swimming, I just got back from swimming again at Don and Shirley’s Lake Havasu house. It turns out Tara has a pool all her own in her back yard, how cool is that? I got to enjoy it with Grandma Nancy, Grandpa Jim, Uncle Scott, and lots of my other friends. I’ll have to go back there again next year too. Until next time, keep your diapers dry and your walking shoes on! -Allie

It’s that time of the year again, time for the annual Inland Empire Offroad Sand Season Kickoff Picnic! This year we will be having the picnic at Shamel park in Riverside again, but it will be on Sunday afternoon, from 2:00-6:00 PM on September 19th. This is the same weekend as the sand show, so you can have a complete duning themed weekend to kick off the season. The club will be providing pizzas, so bring your own beverages and any dessert or side dish you’d like to share. We’ll also have the annual raffle, with prizes from club members and sponsor businesses. Earlier that day we will be having a birthday party for Allison in the park from 10:30 until 2:00 PM, and all club members are welcome to come to that as well. If you’re coming to the birthday party, please RSVP to (951) 683-4908 so we have enough sandwiches and cake for everybody. We hope to see you all there!

Coral Pink 2010 as remembered by Walt When I arrived in Mesquite, I found that Jim, Don & Shirley had already settled in, and enjoying all that the Casino had to offer. As I was getting my room arraignments settled, Jim passed saying the PJ and John were there. It wasn’t long, and Kris & Doug got there too, after having a flat at State Line, and we were all headed for dinner. We went to a new Pizza hut, and got great service and great food. Jim had treated use, as he had already won two “Royal Flushes” Thanx Jim. Thursday morning we all headed to the Eureka for buffet breakfast before heading on to Coral Pink. After we had all got parked and set up, we went for a buggy ride. The sand was VERY SOFT, but we had a great ride. Friday, Saturday and were no exception, however on Sunday’s ride I took a hard hit, when I misjudged a little drop-off. The buggy faired well, with no cracks, but my back took the worst of it, with a lot of pain, still as I write this. Monday I was the camp host, just sitting around trying to mend myself. Tuesday and Wednesday I got to ride with Doug in the Ranger, with Kris and Shirley as my tour guides, I got to see a lot of other areas of the State Park. That was really neat, I wanted to do this Ranger Ride for the past couple of years, Thanx to you guys for hauling me around out there, that makes me want a razor even more now. On Thursday, we went to the Thunderbird Restaurant for our annual breakfast, and upon returning, we saw car stuck, headed out of the meadow, for the dunes. As we approached the car, we found it to be in reverse, the motor running, keys locked inside, and the front tire was spinning . We got the tools we needed, and return to rescue the “damsel in distress”. With the door pried open with wood wedges, Jim used his “special manufactured door lock opener wire” and got in. Then, just as we pulling the car out, the tow-truck operator arrived. On Thursday, I took the bull by the horns, and went for a buggy ride. Kris rode with Jim, and Anna with John, we had a slower, smooth ride, and I was felling brave now, but on the later ride, I wasn’t to sure that I had made a sound decision to dune-buggy that soon, but with some pain pills, I survived. This trip was different from past trips, like tire issues, cars stuck headed for the dunes, John’s new 5th wheel, special 20% off all you can put in a free 5 gal bucket sale, thunder & lighting, a little sprinkle a couple of time, and those “rain-bows”, Ranger Rides, using my A/C in Mesquite. If you have checked out the web site, you’ve noticed we took a couple of pictures, just means we had a great time, just a sample of the trip you could enjoy with use too. The rides were great, the company was the best, Can’t wait till next year!!!

DOGS MUST BE KEPT UNDER CONTROL AT ALL TIMES (BLM law) 3. ON A RIDE, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE VEHICLE AHEAD OF YOU AND THE VEHICLE BEHIND YOU. If they stop, you stop and wait for the group to return to you. This prevents separation and in this manner we never leave a member in the dunes. Remember, it’s easier to find you if you stay still: “a moving target is harder to hit” 4. PLEASE OBSERVE THE “RIDE RATINGS” ON THE CLUB BOARD AND SELECT THOSE RIDES YOU WISH TO PARTICIPATE IN. If you wish to lead a ride, put the time and type of ride you want to lead on the board and then stick to that time. No passing on rides (except #6 rides). You can always change your place in line at a break or if you are waved on by the driver ahead of you. 5. REMEMBER, WE ARE A GROUP OF FRIENDS who share a common interest in riding in the desert. Always keep in mind how your actions affect the other members.
