Just got off the phone with the El Mirage visitor's center and in spite of the present closure, they feel confident the rains will subside and the playa will be nice and racey (and re-opened) for Friday / Saturday.

This is the location for Harpers. It's half the drive for me. Why is this event at El Mirage instead of Ivanpah? It's going to feel funny driving past Ivanpah to go to an event.

Would be an option to have an event at Ivanpah in the fall. El Mirage is nice to ride in when you have nothing but Ivanpah is close by.

El Mirage is a different animal. Terrain, obstacles... the early morning airshow. It's nice to be able to get off the lake occasionally and mix it up. Graze wide, not deep!

Going to Harper's if Elmers still closed tomorrow morning. Not a bad second choice and driving time about the same for me. Sure will miss that awesome BLM port-o-potty. Hope to see y'all either or!

I'm an official NV resident now. Just making the easy trip to meet up with some fellow buggiers back in Cali. Hoping for lots of fun and good times!

As of 1530hrs they are still closed. The report was 1/10 inch of rain yesterday and it's been clear all day today so I'm fairly certain it will clear up however, I really like the idea of Harpers A LOT. I guess I'll have to bring "Ye ol' honey bucket".

I "think" the concept of Elmer's over Ivanpah was the restriction on motor vehicles on Ivanpah. Tow lines are a must when the wind gets scared off by too many kite lines...

....and the relentless stream of headlights and "jake brakes" rattling down the grade all night...

....and the monumentally fashionable crappers at Elmer's...

....but that's just a guess.

I talked to thrash today and he said Harpers was the back up plan. If Elmo is closed I will be at Harpers. Can someone give me a call/text if they end up going to Harpers instead? It might save me a headache. Thanks.

If Elmers closed here is plan "B"
here is the harper directions
on highway 58 w of the 15 and E of the 14 freeways
turn north on harper lake rd.
turn right on power line rd (this is a dirt rd, thats between the 2 large transmission lines also known as Roy St.)
left on CORD20776 the rd is marked with 3 tires laid across the rd (hopefully they are still there)

when you get on the lake bed turn left and follow the shore line we should be in the second cove about a half a mile
this is an easier access then what we went through last year, while there we realized the place is actually surrounded with unique things marshes ponds and wildlife, those who make it there, should go out and back site seeing,
