Places to visit outside BRC

Postby Apox » Wed Jul 27, 2011 11:11 am

I heard that there was a spring-fed swimming spot around the mountains on the 2 - 3 o'clock side. I heard it was only accessable via a mutent vehicle or a car/truck. Anyone heard of this or has been there?

There are hotsprings nearby. Thats probably what you heard about.

However, they are closed during the event, because otherwise the amount of people going there would probably destroy them. They are being guarded during the event, so you can't sneak over anyway. I believe it's the earth guardians that guard them.

It's closed off by BLM... Earth guardians, BLM, and local LE all patrol them. There is a well guarded swimming hole just outside the closures, but it's good for one or 2 people at a time, max. And it's NOT easy to find or get to. (I know... I looked for it. 3 times!)
