    So, we went today for some mudding and messing around. Brought the kids. We go out to the mudhills and I bust out a beer. OMG! A beer. Everybody tells me to make sure I keep it down so I don't get busted by the ranger. I put it in the bed, open, and he comes by, talks to the kids and leaves. What's wrong with this picture? No beer at Ocotillo wells, or was everybody being paranoid?

    From what I understand they are starting to crack down on sh!t at Ocotillo Wells now. They are throwing in more rangers like they did in Glamis. It sucks......I guess they say too much people just go out there to "party" and not to have some good ole family fun in nature.

    are Tim and I the only one seeing a problem with this? dont get me wrong, i love to wheel, and i love beer. i'm not stupid enough to mix the two, even one could potentially dull your senses enough to cause a major problem. one wrong move, and your rig goes over. its bad enough if it were just you, or you and your wife/girlfriend. but to think you were actually stupid enough to take your kids along while participating in such a way. way to go assbag. :shame:

    drinking and any form of motorsports do not mix. I always hated riding with some of the guys in our little snowmobile club who like to drink along the trail. Forget that, I don't drink either way but I refuse to drink and drive anything.

    One year ago, Christmas Night, I got to spend the better part of the evening in the cold and rain picking up the crap that flew out of a EB that rolled in a dirt parking lot. To this day, I have yet to seen any remorse from the guy driving for the incident. All three people in the rig were lucky. Two had seatbelts, the third did not. He escaped with a sore hand after the roll bar landed on his hand. This guy was drunk. He had been drinking beer and liquor all day long. He almost killed himself, his stepson and his stepson's girlfriend.

    DON'T DRINK AND WHEEL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:mad:

    BLM Ranges are out a control

    The Rangers (BLM) at Ocotillo Wells started a new policy this season of not allowing alcohol anywhere outside of your camp area. If they find anything, even unopened in your cooler when you are out of your camp, they will make you pour it out. I’m not sure where they got the authority to do this from, as I am not aware of any changes in the law and nothing is posted anywhere. I personally don’t even drink at all, yet I think they are overstepping their authority and being unreasonable. I choose not to go to Ocotillo Wells anymore because of the abuse of power that I have witnessed there by the BLM. I have not had any run-in’s with them myself, but have seen them bully others around who were not in violation of anything or causing any problems.

    As others have pointed out, you should not be drinking and driving, on or off road, and (your passengers) should not have open containers in your vehicle. But I think it is just fine to park anywhere out in the desert and have your passengers crack open a beer during a break, and this you cannot do in Ocotillo Wells. As for me, I drink way too much Diet Coke.

    I used to drink beer and wheel all the time back in the mid to late 70's. Me and all my buddies would head out to places like Ocotillo Wells, Death Valley, and El Mirage dry lake all the time to go wheeling with many, many cases of cold Budweiser. Back in those days the population of America was about 100 Million less people then it is now, and we would literally be about 100 or more miles from the nearest human being. We also did not have any kids with us. We where all only in our late teens to early twenties back then.

    Thanks for the few of you that actually answered my question about having a beer at the mudhills during a break at Ocotillo Wells, I'll keep it down next time and watch my back the whole time I am drinking the devil water.

    please dont post this kinda crap here:mad:

    calm down all....he cracked a beer...never said he slammed down a 6 pack and then loaded up the family for a death run. I haven't taken the blazer off road yet (not really worthy right now) but I would take some brews too. I used to ride quads and dirt bikes out at glamis, and would have a beer or two during the day after long rides, but we'd be in camp for an hour or 3 before heading back out.

    The BLM has changed its policy about alcohol because of 1.) the large #'s of injury and death on BLM land (majority alcohol related) and 2.) the tree hugging lobbiests have been trying to close all rec. vehicle riding in SOCAL for years, and believe they got this bill passed to enables the rangers to do this form of zero alcohol tolerance.

    you would thing this would give a clue. if you and I follow all the rules, they have no amunition to get the land shut down.

    great, you're an assbag too. while you may not "feel" 1 beer, it is possible that it dulls your senses. and if you're not 110% on your game, bad things can happen when wheeling. bad things can = hurt people. follow the rules, or dont wheel. there's too many people out there trying to stop us from doing what we love for us to let dipsh!ts like you ruin it for the rest of us.
