Right? Plus, Ive never seen any soft terrain at the lake bed, no worries on getting stuck. You all don't have to worry so much, there will probably be quite a few people out there.

I'll only camp if I know that someone else will be there for sure. was hoping to get a night under the stars but if not- o well.

Oh and a little interesting knowledge. Bessemer Mine rd is home to the oldest being on earth; the King Clone Creosote Bush is 11,700 years old.
2 weeks ago we drove the entire Bessemer mine road from highway 247 all the way to Interstate 40 in the middle of the week by ourselves, it was the opening kickoff to our mega 3 state road/wheeling vacation trip. it's a easy road to navigate and it's entire lenght is covered by a normal GPS. there are no parts of Bessemer mine road that can flood even if it rained hours on end. it's possible that the dry lake bed(named Soggy Dry Lake Bed lol) can accumulate an inch or two of standing water during a lenghty down pour but even then it's less likely that you will get stuck even with a 2wd truck.

keep in mind that this meteor storm is an annual event and that there will be many many people out there to observe the meteor shower so you wont be alone

i just remembered that the start line of the race course is at the other dry lake bed off Camp Rock Road...

Greg, make sure you find us before we start pre-running as your handheld radio may not reach us if we are on the other side of the course from Bessemer...

James, Johnnie, and i did that once... we made the mistake of turning right in the trail just before the 40 and ended up crossing into some military testing zone...

i was leading and saw the signs, but since the barbed wire fence had been cut, i just kept going... hahaha

I know, messing with you, hence floatie pic. I know what a flash flood is. Just saying, we'll probably be fine. I've never seen it fill before, but if you want to camp somewhere higher, couldn't hurt. Still would be stuck if it flooded, got to come back down to get out. But I will bring my floaties just in case

Yeah and I almost sheared off my upper mounts. That's what I get for watching 2 Fast 2 Furious before wheeling. That was a fun run though. I'd like to do it again.

what an amazing day out there!!!

the storm moved in and only rained in scattered locations, so the whole area dropped in temps by almost 20 degrees, and it wasn't nasty humid either...

and the dry lake bed actually did fill up with water by about 3 inches and i thought it was just a mirage when i powered into it from one of the chase roads, but SoCalRoadie figured out it was actually water and called it but it was too late... i went sideways in it and got covered in mud... haha...
