Re: BRC on a motorcycle, a how to guide & FAQ

Well yeah, there's the car door thing. And I can't imagine any graceful or safe way to sneak by the traffic on the road that branches off 447 and leads to the turn-off, what with dust on one side and oncoming traffic on the other. So probably a night-time or late evening / early morning approach wou...

Re: BRC on a motorcycle, a how to guide & FAQ

Sounds like it will work. I've ridden a bike to BRC a couple of time, but that was years ago and connected with theme camps with scads of supplementals. But if you go minimal it's eminently do-able IMHO. I plan to try it some time without the external camp backup. The question I have is this: how ar...

There were two sightings in 1999, witnessed by thousands. Not well documented, though: a quick search didn't turn up much.

Playa dust eats golf cart batteries?

Some friends want to bring a golf cart / mutant vehicle but the person who could lend it to them refused because he is convinced that the alkali dust will neutralize the acid in the batteries and it won't work.
