Buggy Boogie Fall Thang


Hey Sailors,
Labor Day just passed and that means it's time for the Buggy Boogie Fall Thang!
El Mirage Dry Lake (Elmer's) is the site.
Located in California's Mojave Desert between Victorville (on I-15) and Palmdale. Just an hour and a half from Los Angeles.
Friday through Sunday - September 17th-18th & 19th, 2010.

We camp at Walt's Cove, about 3.5 miles along the lakebed on the right.
Noted by the banner poles and windsocks around our camp and the buggies and kites strewn about on the ground.

For the first-timers, remember to bring water, sunscreen and something to sit on. We'll have shade. There are nice toilets across the lake - About .6 miles away. Bring food too, if you want to eat while there.

Conditions vary so you would want probably every kite size you own. Bring 'em.
Same for your wheels - We buggy, we board, we sail Blokarts and Mantas, sometimes a KiteWing, sometimes in-line, off-road skates too.
All skill levels are encouraged to join us.
Groupies are welcome too.

This is an official Horny Naked Buggy Chicks event.


Safen Up! Buggy On!

Hey Corey
Do you always have the Fall event so close to when we have SOBB? Just that some buggier s that come to SOBB can't afford to go to both so both events could suffer. Like the Challenge 2000 event and nabx HUH?

Hi Jon,
Since 1994.
Every year, right after Memorial Day and right after Labor Day.

Back when Elmer's was open to all - no fee - it was busy and noisy on most weekends.
Started gathering right after a major 3-Day Holiday with the hopes of finding a slightly quieter Elmer's. It has worked.

I have no idea when your SBBB is scheduled.

I don't see how anybody suffers.
It's a matter of choices.

Quite different from scheduling another event same time- same place without working together. But I digress.

Our scheduling is dictated by the SCTA racing schedule (not good to buggy with 200mph cars whizzing down the lakebed).

This year, The Fall Buggy Boogie Thang will happen the weekend of September 16th-17th-18th. Hope to see everyone there.

Though this would be a good time to rattle the cage on this thread...

I gotta be back in Yuma Saturday afternoon so I'm thinking of heading up way-too-early Thursday morning and try to roll the wheels off Scout Buggly.

I should be good to go. All I need is 3 more flights and then the Army should grant me leave.

Since there is a possibility of me attending, everyone should be looking forward to this.

Since I'm so close now, I should be able to attend some or most of this event. I'm going to watch the calendar and try to keep it clear.

Can anyone post up a google map of where camp usually is? If I come in after dark, I want to end up in the right camp. Hoping this works out for me!

The western end of "Walt's Cove" on the north shore line is the general area. Spring Thang saw several people there by Thurs. Perhaps, Mark will be there already so look for the "stripper joint" multi-color flashing diode lite pole. Can't miss that, it's a most excellent beacon in the nite.

Dan's bit http://www.windwizard.com/elmirag.html
A great map about 3/4 of the way down the page

Corey's bit http://buggythang.org/whatsathang.html

BLM Barstow's bit http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/fo/barstow/mirage.html

Bring chem lites and a good rider's beacon as the moon should be right for some good night riding.

Hello, The name is T.J. I am new to the board but a long time reader. I was curious if I drove the motorhome out and had a cooler full of cold beer....maybe someone would let me try a few kites and diff gear? I am not sure if this old body is really able to do this. I was an extreme skater back in the day, and just think I will pick up on this pretty quick. Bueller....Bueller......Bueller. Thanks

That's one of many reasons I like this event so much. It's an opportunity to share some shade and a cold adult beverage with some really great friends, meet some new ones, develop skills and try new stuff on a nice big flat playground. Besides, sometimes I forget how to "play nice and share my toys" these days. This deal always gets me back in the swing of being "human" again when helping introduce the sport to new folks.

Can't wait!!!


I ready for some night flying again. It was so much fun, except when the wind did a 180 and blow the oppossite of camp. I left the buggy out on the lake bed with no strobe on it, walked back to with the kite in the air. Took me about an hour to find it. All in all it was a blast. My HQ Montana 7m should be back from Fix My Kite this week. So i'll have my low wind kite back. :singing: :wee: :singing:

Start buildin a great light set up. I will start you off with a cat eye bike headlight. Look for some running led's , and my favorite the wheel spinners. If you are real nice I'll let you try a Manta!
