Post pic of said hot chick that may help too.

Sound advice, but if she is extremely hot you may find yourself stranded in a bad place while your new friends give the hot chick a ride home.

When you are on the main roads in the park, watch for the idiots on dirtibkes/quads. They fly past you and around you no matter how dusty it is.

I go there a lot and have never had that problem on the main roads or even the trails. quads, bikes, rigs all respect one another, it's not more one persons park than the next.

great advice everyone, how about this one if it hasn't been said. stop on top of hills and make sure there is another side. (if your the first over) bundy does a great job blocking off drop offs but that park changes every time it rains.
