Joke of the Week
Joke of the Day: If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared, what would be the most difficult thing to explain about life today? One answer: “I possess a device in my pocket that is capable of accessing the entirety of information known to man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and get into arguments with strangers.”

First Dunes trip of the year! It always looks so funny when we first get here, no one around.....
Dusty checking things out.....
Fresh tracks from Topher, it had just rained.
Here he is up on the hill with his new CanAm
Here he comes!
Poor Topher wrecked about 30 minutes after we got there. Scared him (and me!) really bad. I was afraid it would ruin his zeal for riding. He did take a break and recover that night, but the next day, he was right back on it. I'm glad he didn't get hurt too bad and maybe he will be more cautious in the future (not that I thought he was doing anything foolish in the first place :) )
Ah Oh! Brynley got a beer!
Hahaha, its not really open.....Here is Taterbug playing on the fresh tracks.
I always get pictures at the first of the trip, then slack. I'll have to get better at it. Anyway, good times!!!
