Hoss was nearly out of fuel when I decided to go to the river the other day.
Pam's Sherpa started that whiney whistlin sound from the gas cap vent like it does when it wants to Roost, so I decided to ablige.
I took it to one of my favorite trails at the South Canadian River here in Central Oklahoma, to get the stink blowd off us.
Not sure what I was thinkin, but I took a wrong turn and, well, you'll see what almost happened. :oops: :razz:
Enjoy,
Rod :cool:

Now that was cool.The little sherpa was rockin.If you would have sailed that guy
off of the ledge,well,how big is your dog house :lol:
Is that terrain what you have mostly to ride? I haven't done to much sand,but
looks like speed is the key.

Thanks guys, glad you liked the video.
I'm with Ya Gunn, since I hit the 50s, I wait for the 40s as well. ;)
Hope you did OK through the big storm Mike, we're gettin the monsoons from it now.
And Yup, I'd be in the doghouse for sure, once the winch truck got me off that big tree root stickin up off the underwater tree! :lol:
Some steer clear of the sand like the plague, unfortunately you can't get to there from here without Roostin a bunch of it around the river, to get to the nice trails through the woods.
I'm not sure if the speed is key or just the practice it takes to become comfortable with the seeming lack of control you feel.
I've fallen at around 40 in the sand and it still hurts, once you can breath again. :shock:
Pam's been doin pretty well in the sand, I encourage her to go slow and make it a goal not to squid (put her feet down all over the place, like she's got 8 legs). :razz:
It was very rewarding for me to see her in her very first snow ride this last storm.
She hardly put her feet down at all, and I was amazed she didn't put her feet down up this small hill even while her wheel was spinnin.
This means to me she is gaining confidence in her control of her scooter through the soft shtuff.



I attribute this to her practice traversing what we call the Devil's sand pile at the river.
We call it that cuz seems like every time I take someone through it, the Devil tries to take them to his house, if you know what I mean.



See you guys out there somewhere,
Rod
