Re: 1970 Pismo Sand Dune Movie - Catch The Joy

The scenes of Pismo bring back the joys of sand duning I remember. The freedom of our sport that I fell in love with and continue to search for today. Pismo is much different today than in the 70s when this was made. I started duning in 1968 when about 25% of the buggies were water pumpers. VWs were...

Re: ISDRA Photo takes grand prize in Palm Springs

Frishman said it’s one of the last places left where OHV enthusiasts can run roughshod over the land.
I do not think Frisman was intending to show OHVs in a positive way. I think the purpose of the collage is to show how destructive he thinks we are.

But, I like it despite his agenda.
