Blake from UTV Mayhem and I went to check out the progress of the new border fence.  Blake wasn’t too happy about driving on concrete with his paddle tires.

I have been testing out a 2009 Polaris RZR S for a future article in Sand Addiction Magazine. For a stock UTV, the RZR S is a real performer in the dunes.

Predator Motor Corporation was out with their X-18 Intimidator  sand car.  I was lucky enough to take one for a drive.  Look for a full review on DuneGuide.com and an article in Sand Addiction Magazine.

 
This poor guy ended up in the canal by the start of the sand drags.  Desert Recovery fished the car out of the canal after a few days.
