Current state of playa. Gum boots needed?

Post by didjeridude » Thu Jul 25, 2019 10:52 pm

Just wondering if anyone has been out to the playa recently and what the status is on the surface? is it going to be a mudfest or has the playa dried out?

In muddy conditions, gum boots ftw, but if the playa has dried out and is more or less dry (whether it is hard or soft doesn't matter, its the wetness that creates mud), then regular playa boots will be fine as per usual.

Honestly, I've found that barefoot is best in playa mud; plastic bags over shoes/boots are a distant (unattractive/awkward) second.

Gum boots would become platforms quickly.
