Dry Lakes


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys-

For all of you that hunt the dry lakes, have you ever run into any problems with people doing other types of activities other then meteorite hunting? Like maybe blocarting, land sailing , model rocketing,etc. Or is there enough room on them for every ones use? Just wondering...

Goldfinger... interesting thought... never in southern

California or driving up HWy 395 to Nevada... only once

in the Carson Sink area taking the cutoff from Fallon

to 20-mile hill, and it was just a couple of kids plunking

with .22 rife... no problem, nice kids who lived in Fallon.

Catching the early/evening sunlight while eyeballing or

even using binoculars for shadows may be why there are

few out on a drylake when I was out...

the magnet on a stick is best for searching foe micrometorite

fragments or other magnetics.

Be careful of wetlakes...

I have searched many dry lakes and did see a a few other people far off on the lake but not many. Do tread carefully on the lakes some are still wet and it would not be fun to sink yor truck out there also some have some large sink holes and you can't see them tell your right up on them and you don't want to drive into one of them, other then that there is lots of room for all.

I haven't seen El Mirage dry lake in nearly 30 years, but it was sure a big part of my late teens and early 20's. I grew up in Orange C., and was heavily into varmint hunting at the time. El Mirage was a favorite place to call up a coyote or 2, and Lord only knows how many .22 shells we used up shooting at all the jackrabbits. My apologies to those of you now digging them up.

Moved out of So.Cal. in 1987. Don't miss So.Cal one bit, but I definitely miss the desert. :grr01:
