26,000lbs without a cdl kinda sucks! i might need to get weighed beforehand so at least i know.
I qouted someone else. I think if you read into this thread a few pages, it will be clarified. https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/gener...ngs-bring.html
Honestly I wish I never copied that post.
I just edited the text out of it, but left the link. Argue with the OP.

Pointed at no one in particular, the towing in CA has been discussed in every forum on pbb.
The only thing I took from that one post is, that someone supplied first hand info, to just be good.

I don't jump in on these Driving/Towing in Ca threads but I asked a freind who is CHP working out of Morongo and he confirmed they will have increased patrols thru race week and after but it is due to increased traffic only. they are not looking for anything they normally would not. Just mind you P&Qs and you should not meet officer Marchante or his colleagues.

I would like to meet them all and say "thank-you" to every one of them! I usually try to do this anyway

Beware of rattlesnakes!

Bring goggles and dust masks.

A quick baby wipe "shower" will make you feel semi-human again.

Guinness is for breakfast.

Are baby wipes better than a typical pop up hand wipe/sanitizer?

Baby wipes usually have lotion in them so they don't dry your skin out as much....and your skin gets pretty dry in teh desert.

This is true.
From past years experience, those little crack's on your finger's, you know, the one's you got from wrenching on your ride for the last month, will turn into the grand canyon.

Well known tip, if your ride/drive with gloves, use baby powder in them. It helps with sweat and chafing.

To take it one step further

For any of the Ladies - if you are looking for the ultimate lotion for KOH....look for one that says "Hydrating" lotion - not "Moisturizing".

Hydrating has more of a "plumping" quality and Moisturizing has a more "emollient" quality.

In the Desert - you want "Hydration".

What's the closest weather station to check for weather?
What type of shoes should I bring for the pits?

Your not serious are you on the weather question? There is a thread bouncing around in this section called KOH WEATHER that is updated daily. Wow!!!

As for shoes...I would recommend something with a steel or composite toe as they may help keep your toes from getting crushed...but I don't think there is anything written as to what you have to wear. Maybe something that won't catch on fire as easy should you spill fuel by accident? Dancing shoes

Uhhh... something greater or equal to 5 gallons? Seriously, if you want to hold something that is smelly or toxic I would be more concerned with the strength of the bag not the size. That said, 8 gallon trash bags are available, but hard to find. I found some that I use for a small trash can in my camper at Lucerne Valley Market and Hardware!

From the first post here: https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/compe...h-weather.html links to everything you ever wanted to know about KOH weather.

Current conditions just south of Hammertown: Weather Station History | Weather Underground

If we need to tell you what kind of shoes to bring, perhaps this is not the event for you?

The lakebed is like a fine sand. Any comfortable athletic shoe or boot is fine, but it will be seriously worn by the time you are done.

I always bring a 2nd pair of boots that have the lugs almost worn off the bottom so that they are almost smooth. These are my lakebed mud boots. Even a little rain and the lakebed turns into a concrete like sticky mud. It dries out fast, but also builds up like a platform shoe sole. Smooth soles are easy to get mud off of, and a 2nd pair of shoes can be left outside.

I have a ritual I started two years ago. I bring boots and sneakers that I have worn for the past year or so. On Friday night after the race I throw them both in the fire as I don't want to carry them nor do I need them anymore.
