Plan B ?


Another round of rain will no doubt be filling the lake again.

Sorry to see all the damage down south.

The next 2 weeks look warm and dry so I have every hope we will have a fresh new surface to ride.

On the off chance the lake is wet during IBX I am curious about suggestions for a plan B ? I know this happened to NABX a year or 2 before I started going. What did folks do then ?

Last year when the rains came the Blokarters moved to the west side of Ivanpah behind Whiskey Petes. Roach is also a possibility north of Buffalo Bills. Bobby should have a report on condition in the next week or so. Doesn't take long for the lake to dry in good conditions.

That was what I thought plan B sort of was. What I don't get is if Ivanpah is under water wouldn't Roach, Jean etc. suffer the same fate?

The west side of Ivanpah and Roach are higher (not by much) so aren't as effected by the rains as the east side of Ivanpah.
