Our site is dedicated
to promoting dune and dune related safety
through education and thoughtful discussion about a variety of subjects
including safe dunning practices, safe and courteous camping and even
safe RV’ing and towing. We are hoping to affect a social change that
will ripple throughout the off-road community and change the public's
perception of us as a group.
There are many groups out there fighting in the political arena
to keep our dunes open and accessible, but we firmly believe that
without a fundamental social change and a shift in public perception,
those fights will never be won. Perhaps we are being idealists in
trying to start this non-partisan effort, but it is a challenge we are
more than willing to tackle, and we hope that you will join us along the
way because we can't do it without you!!!
Every Duner is
is a sentiment that is sometimes hard to
swallow, but we understand that as kids grow older, buy their own trucks
and toys, they end up back in the dunes on their own with their own
group of friends, and hopefully return with their families years later.
We are working to create a visibly safe environment where riders without
helmets, without flags, racing around camps, unsupervised children,
burning pallets and other unsafe fuels, and acts showing a lack of basic
courtesy and respect for others are the exceptions both in the dunes and
in the public perception. Although many of the projects we are working
on are aimed at kids and their families, this is only a starting point
is key to success and perhaps our biggest challenge. No one likes to be
told what to do while they are out enjoying the dunes, and we recognize
that many go to the dunes for precisely that reason—to do whatever they
please without someone constantly looking over their shoulder. However,
the past has proven that general disregard for the written and unwritten
rules of the desert leads to more regulations and closures.
