Good morning. It has been really busy so I have not had time for updates. We start course marking today!

One week tomorrow and I fly out. Hopefully she's all dry by then. The rental is only 2wd

We had a great day course marking, until we got about 1/4 mile from Hammertown, then this... The lower radius arm broke at the knuckle, taking out the coilover and twisting the trailing arm. Luckily Knox was only going about 25 at the time. We were WAY deep in the mountains a long way from help most of the day, so it could have been much worse.

It is getting really dry in Hammertown and out in the desert. If we don't get any more rain, and none is forecast, everything is going to be great!

It was very exciting for me to discover yesterday that Emerson Dry Lake has dried out and is ready to race! With all the sun and temps in the mid 60's all week, Melville Dry Lake may dry up too.

The 3rd pic is from the breakdown site. We ALMOST made it back. Look at all that beautiful sunshine! Woof woof!

Pretty lucky to break down that close! Got a plan to fix the A arm or swap a spare on?

Glad to see you are alright!
Do you have any pictures of Melville (Sorta Dry) lake bed?
The lake tends to have 2 or 3 "pools" of water on it.
Thanks JB

It is still soooooooooo quiet here. A few teams have started showing up, but the only generator I hear is the Hammertown Grid quietly doing its thing.

This place is going to change a LOT over the next few days....

Travis made me take the night off. I actually got to just sit down and drink a beer and relax.
Where?
On top of king shock hill or whatever the hell its really called.
It's a "warm" night.... NO air mivement... very still...
With a few frosty soldiers.
(Sigh)
