Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park. There are a lot of really good trails there and great sand dunes. Rocmoc, if you stop by the first of May, we'll go over there and play on some of it. We would need about 3 days to see all of the variation. Kinarfi, you and Linda may like to join us. Besides I have an oscillscope.for you. Anyone else that wants to welcome to come along. State Park camping rates are only about $18 a night wit5h drive thru sites. Dry camping is also available a few miles down the road each way.

I have reserved space 14 in this campground, http://www.reserveamerica.com/camping/map_of_Coral_Pink_Sand_Dunes_State_Park/r/campgroundMap.do?page=map&search=site&contractCode=UT&parkId=345131&topTabIndex=CampingSpot for May 4, 5 & 6. Will depart the morning of the 7th for home. There is a dry camping area before you get to the campground as you enter the park. At $56 for 3 nights I would save a small amount running the gen while dry camping and I like the quiet of NO GEN. There are other sites open for now but if you are going and want to be in the campground, don't wait. The Cancellation Fee is $13 if cancelled 4 days before the reservation date so not much at risk.

Note, I don't think the campground has power. Just, water, shower, dump & paved sites so no sand in the MH. Everything but power. SO disregard my costing a little more. rocmoc n AZ/Mexico

What are you saying? are you going to be in the 14 a night park or the free BLM with me and maybe others?

For now I have a reservation. Lenny is going to check out the dry camping & campground this weekend. Will decide after we compare info and decide. Watched two youtube videos, dry camping & campground locations. I like the campground but not if it requires daily fee to enter in addition to the campground fee. Will firm up after Lenny visit this weekend.

What a terrible life you guys are now living.You no longer have the joy of working 10-12 hours a day.Nothing better to do then visit different areas to get out in the great outdoors and go on trail rides..What a pity....Does that sound like its coming from someone envious??? YOU BET IT IS..... :angry::D

Thankx Ricksrb, Your right, being retired is nice. I learned something about retirement. When I was younger and still trying to come up with enough money to retire, the money I thought I needed was way too much. Ultimately I ended up with a lot less money then I once had but it doesn't matter. I'm by no means rich but I do have enough to get along on ok. I've always lived not needing much. As long as I have my shop and a toy or two I'm happy. I don't even own a car, just a pickup truck. I found out that retirement wasn't about money anyway but about time. Just being able to do what I want everyday is worth far more then the couple of million I once had. If I would have known that I only needed this much money to be happy, I would have retired a long time sooner.

Looking forward to the rest of you guys and gals joining us.

Called the park this morning. The Camping fee for using the campground includes the fee to enter the developed part of the park. There is NO FEE for using the rest of the park. So; if camped at the dry lake/ dry camping, NO FEES. But if you want to use the showeres or dump site, there will be a fee. I looked at GoogleEarth and the Dry Camping is at one end of the park and the Campground is in the middle.

Lenny & Kinarfi, if you BOTH decide to dry camp I will also. I will cancel my reservation and eat the $13 or save $43. Either way is a win as we will be THERE!!!!!!! Just let me know.

BUT I will have to find a place to dump my tanks as I will have been on the road for a few day by the time I reach Lenny's.

There is a place to dump just before you get to my house. It's ust off interstate 15, north of St George. Take exit 16 (state hwy 9 which leads to my house), go about 1/4 mile east and it's the first gas station on the left. You will need to get off to the right and go under hwy 9 to get to it. Dump site is in the rear. You can just help yourself.

      My experience was mostly good.  Pieces of the process left me shaking my head (#2 and #3).
      1.  Tranny and Hydraulic filters are easy to replace.  On the first service (50 hours), you replace the filters, not the fluid.  There is a youtube video out there that shows step by step.  One word of caution, there are 2 places that you need to add fluid (UDT2) back for what was lost in the filter change.  One is directly in front of the filters, under the dump bed.  This is the tranny fill.  The other is under the front passenger seat.
      2.  Oil filter ... what a PITA.  Cannot believe that the engineers could not have made this a bit easier to get to.  Filter is behind the battery.  If you are a large fellow, you are going to have issues getting to it.  Removing the skid plate underneath helps (loosen with filter wrench), but getting your hand in there is even harder than from the battery.
      3.  Fuel filter.  I tried to get the bowl loose to replace the element.  I have not had any luck yet.  It is so tight from the factory.  I was cranking on it so hard I thought I was going to break something.  So, I decided to call the dealer and ask if there was a trick.  They said there is no trick.  Crank on it until it comes loose.  Lefty loosey / counter clockwise.  So, I will do that this evening.
      4.  Air filter.  Easy.
      5.  Grease zerts.  I only was able to find zerts at the control arms.  6 on the front, 8 on the back.  Anyone else know of any other zerts?
      Contemplating getting the service manual.  $100 seems retarded to me.  But might be worth it.

      Hi all, never have owned a UTV before. I was looking at a small Honda 500 UTV but when I went to the dealership, they had a ton of Hisun 550 Strikes & Sectors. Started doing some research on Hisun and it sounds like a decent starter utv. I will be doing some light trail riding and mostly street riding. 
      What should i be looking for and is Hisun that good of a brand? CFMOTO's seem similar to Hisun's too.  
      Strike 550 was $8,500 new. 
       
      Thanks!

      Hello everyone.
      Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
      All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
      The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.
