I don't go to BM for my own reasons - mainly cos I go to the desert to get away from people, etc. My M.O. when I was doing it was off-road riding with my cousins, and drinking beer - in any order. Our favorite haunt was not too far away at Sand Mountain, NV. There's a dry lake there as well. The unique thing at the BM site is the playa
- or talc as it is better known, is very fine grained, and appears like dust. Sand Mountain has some of the finest sand I have ever seen and it too resembles dust.
This dust will get into EVERYTHING. Once I took a radio/tape player out there - and from then on, that was the only radio I took because the player was ruined.
So if you have a vented hub motor out at BM, you will be washing it out when you get home.
Whatever you drive out there will have dust in it until you junk it. I can only think of one other material more permeating than desert dust - and that's animal hair
- - -
I have some pals that go regularly out to BM; they run the Quinine vehicle; mixed drinks with Quinine, water with Quinine, whatever else you can have with Quinine - they have it.
Have fun in the sun; stay hydrated! KF
