#3 (the ride back) turned out to be roller coaster heaven & a mad dash back to the barn. And all Whipper had to do was go along for the ride.  :o ;D

Here's #2. Found a way to get down to a small wash. Everything in the desert has thorns on it & as our grandson said "Whoa..Grandma took us to some crazy places".   hilarious At some point he was actually laying down on the seat. Hey, it's part of riding in the desert  ;D AND having us for grandparents.  hilarious

This is the 1st of 3 videos of our first desert ride with our grandson in Dec 2011. We'd taken him for rides on the street in front of our house, but never in the desert. He wasn't real crazy about the revving  of the motor, but he got used to it real quick. Actually, it was the first time our oldest son, his dad, drove Godzilla, too. Whipper had to ride with me. The only time he touched the sticks was loading & unloading the machines on the trailer.

Here's #2 of our ride that day. Where we rode is usually underwater, but the lake was way down. I had a standoff on the trail with a burro. The Model Citizen won.  ;D And Godzilla got his feet wet.

If you like rollercoasters, you'll love Hassayampa!

My son and I visited Whip and the Model Citizen just over 2 years ago. This video highlights the suspension.
