Tom Thanks, but i already got a Dino board and just haven't put it in yet. When we got the bus it was in but wasn't working So I rebuilt it new Sail switch and all else. I also got a remote board extend unit for the board. I put the unit back in but haven't hook up the extend unit. Just haven't needed to use the heater. When we have we turn on the little cube and it works well for very little cost.

Although it smells a little and is full of brine shrimp, we thought swimming in Salt Lake itself was pretty fun. Not really swimming, more floating without being able to sink feeling. Kinda surreal. I also agree Park City is probably real pretty with fall colors right now. Craig

If it clears up and runs fine then I wouldn't worry about it. On rare occasion mine will act up similarly. One blip of the throttle and smooth as butter. I spent a long time looking for reasons to put my spare motor in, but as the years go by I think the old motor will outlast me. My DD mechanic/consultant loves the old 2 strokes and has seen trashed motors run well beyond any rational expectation. His only concern is getting them hot.

Totally not worth it. There are many more worthwhile things to see out there.

I have a few systems to keep the engine and interior warm in winter travel--

1.  Stopping at a campground with 50 amp service:
     Plug in to 50 amps.
     Plug in the 240v/60 gallon coolant heater.
     Plug in the stand alone 24v Webasto circulating pump.
     OR run the Webasto 45k engine and interior heater.
2.  Stopping with 30 amp service
     (or 120v cord to friendy place):
     Plug into 30 amp/120v service.
     Start Webasto for engine and interior heat.
3.  Stopping with no nothing:
     Run the generator.
     Run the Webasto to heat the interior and engine.

The only problems I have ever had is when the Webasto wants to be a bitch and stops working.

  I should add that my Bendix AD-9 air dryer has a 12v heater with a freeze temperature sensor, so no frozen air lines.

Bring lots and lots of water to drink. The salt and if any wind will dry you out bad and fast. The dry lip thing. Hands also lots of hand cream, Screen # 95 it is really white out there. Shocked Instead I would look into a salt-shaker and then go to Wendover Casino's to the food buffet. It is cheap and the Turtles can go also Lots of good food for very little. Grin

Hi Sean, if you do go, make sure you give the bus a thorough wash after wards, especially the running gear and under carriage,  will you be down for the Dam Rally this Nov? I hope all is well, tom, lvmci...

Ever seen one like this...

That hitch puts the pivot point that much closer to the rear axle to reduce the "sway" often found with the pivot point on the bumper 4 - 5 feet behind the axle. I have heard of a couple of manufacturers but ouch, a little pricey.

race trials are 6 days away....
from the web:
If you're passing through, then maybe, go check it out. If not, don't waste your time driving hours to see it. I witnessed 3 cars getting stuck in the slush flats. It'll cost you $$$$$ to get pulled out. Save your time and gas money.

Public parking is south of the pit area, on the west side of the race track, outside the cones.  Be sure to bring a hat, dark glasses, sunscreen and shade from the sun.  Don't forget a camera with lots of film/memory/tapes, because you will want to remember everything you see and hear.  Binoculars are also a great idea since the race

It is an experience and you can walk onto the flats. It warns you not to take your vehicle out there but it's clear some do (not us, wouldn't chance it!!)...anyone like us hiring a car would need to check their insurance for damage/recovery etc!!!

t's beautiful on the Salt Flats and VERY bright: Take hats and dark dark dark glasses. We came for Speed Week which was cancelled due to flooding on the Flats. We drove all that way to fulfill a Bucket List item and of course were disappointed that Mother Nature decided to mess with our dreams! Not sorry we went and definitely WILL go again.

10. What about overnight camping? To maintain public health & safety and protect
natural resources, overnight camping is prohibited on the salt flats. There are no
developed campground facilities. You may camp for free on adjacent public lands
accessed via local roads. During landspeed racing events, many participants choose to
camp on the mud flats off of the access road to Bonneville or along the nearby Silver
Island Mountains backcountry byway. Please refer to the enclosed map. RV camping
facilities are available in nearby Wendover.
