Just watch out for these turds..Apparently you guys aren't the first ones to think of the concept..They've had timed meets there for years..
Forget the cars! I just might have to start hanging out with those guys.
You can rig yourself up a sheet and some wheels and call it "The Rainbow Warrior"..
I am ready to be a helper. I can put out cones. There are lots of nice little town in that part of Oregon.
I will contact Burt Monroe.
JR, you sure that womens LSR in 76 wasn't set in one of those land yachts???
Sounds like this could be a MINI MUROC!!! what help do you need???????-------Don

Can't find the site, but there is a guy building a rocket to launch himself to the edge of space. He's in Bend Oregon and if memory serves, he was gonna blast off from this lakebed. Pretty amazing inventor.
video showing surface in use..
looks good to me.
Not to throw water on your parade, but if you were to need a ambulance, or part for that matter, the nearest would be in Lakeview, Burns, or Winnemucca.and you better not be hurt bad...........................
thats why we are looking into having an EMT crew on hand and life flight notified so they will be availabe....
as an aside, do we have anyone that would be willing to organize a possible saftey/tech inspection crew? more or less a list of possible qualified individuals that will be willing to essentially volunteer their time to make this happen.
also, we are toying with acrazy idea, so if all SERIOUS followers of this, those who are planning on running a vehicle, would email me at your nearest convenience.
Still willing to help anyway I Can.
Is there a tentative date set for this yet?
unfortunately this idea kind of died, alot of people were "interested" but unfortunately the planning support just wasnt there. if anyone wants to plan a "camping" trip to take there car out to the dry lake, let me know.
Just brining up this old thread because I said I was going to test my car there.
Revival of this thread and idea! Would be so cool to hold some trials here. Or even a traditional hit rod campout? Oe head there before or after Hot Rod Arama in Pendleton?
Is this the same place that Jesse Combs was killed just recently?
Yes, the Alvord Desert.
I thought that it was the same place. Thanks
Get a dozen cars out there, and see how it goes.
Take some videos and post on the H.A.M.B. to spread the word.
Take it to the next level if it there is interest.
Sure looks promising to me!
