  1. Thanks Mike, I saw ATV tracks so I assume my buggy could do it, but once i saw that 30ft stretch of "V" shaped dirt road i was skeptical lol. I have a white 2020 Honda Pioneer 700, 2 seater version.

     I probably will take the buggy back there because if that black Polaris i saw up on that hill way back there can get up there i'm sure my buggy can do the same. For the life of me i still haven't found a way that Polaris got back up there. Very interesting though why he was back up there. I feel this needs investigation lol

  2. Expedition #10

    Scouting old road

    SE of Queen Valley, AZ   90F

    Hello friends! I hope everyone is doing well 🙂

    Went scouting on October 10th to see if this old road can handle the Buggy. I'm guessing it can't. Let me know what you guys think. I apologize for the crappy video(s) I'm pretty much a one man show, the girlfriend is incompatible with the hills 🙂

  3. Hey everyone, i'm curious to what this ore (rock) is. It's whitish/grey with some silver tones all over it, it glistens in the sun pretty amazingly and seems to be made of sheets of maybe silicone? it breaks pretty easily.


  4. I was noticing "coil whine" coming from the control box. I'm sure it's normal but was wondering does anyone else hear this? very high pitched squeal or whine, very faint. I also have a GM1000 and I don't hear it on that one.

    Edit: Interesting! Seems to be more prevalent when using Multi. 

  5. Thanks flakmagnet, Yeah cant wait 🙂

    Today's Expedition was called off because the Buggy's battery was too low. I haven't used it for four weeks and it cranked five times than the battery seemed like it was dead. It's on the slow charger now and we're going to attempt the trip again on Saturday.

  6. HI MannyScoot sorry took so long to reply. Not yet 🙂

    I'm heading out tomorrow to a club claim north of Lake Pleasant, it's a ATV only claim and will take about 18 miles heading north in the buggy to get to it. RRPC claim, Map 14, RR-Humbug.

    I'll report back...



  7. Hello again everyone and Seasons Greetings!

    It's been pretty rainy here in AZ the past 6 weeks so I took the time to get the buggy ready for its first expedition. The buggy came stock so I had to add a windshield, hard roof and A-Arm guards. I'm really liking this Pioneer buggy! I'm amazed how smooth it handles on the dirt. 🙂

    I took the Buggy out for it's first expedition on December 13th for a test run at a RRPC claim. I didn't prospect that day i was mainly learning the new camera and buggy.

  8. I'm back everyone 🙂. Took me awhile to heal from my last endeavor 8 days ago. But i'm back ready to go. Note too self don't mess with neck muscles.

    My next Expedition will be on the 11th, Monday.

    I have some very good news and since i don't really have any friends to share my excitement with i'd like to share my excitement with you all!

    I got my BUGGY!!!

    2020 Honda Pioneer 700

    I got it today from Ride Now Powersports Chandler. I financed it with 4K down.

    Super awesome, me happy! 🙂

  9. Hey everyone I have returned and it didn't go so well 😞. For some very weird reason i hurt my neck i think. i was stretching to begin the walk and than stretched my neck a little and i guess i did something and hurt my right neck muscle pretty bad. Feels like a pulled muscle but i never felt one like this before. And with that said I had to return home.

    I had about 1500ft more to walk to get too Genes Dream. The blue box is where i parked and the green line is how much i walked. The red box is the start of the claim. I took a few photos near the purple box. The area in the pictures is pretty much how you get to all of Map 5 claims.

    The temp was great it was 64F and slightly cold in the shade. Very nice indeed 🙂
