2011 Playa Conditions

“Greetings Silicon Villagers !! A bunch of us just received this, but I thought that everyone could be interested. Of course passing the BLM inspection is huge, but we all have grown to expect that. The really great news is that the water sat long enough to smooth out all the sand dunes etc. For you Virgins, and even for those of you that have only been to BM in the past couple years, this is Huge news: It means that the Playa will be smooth and wonderful and the dust level will be lower than it has been for the past several years. Color me excited! Wristy

Greetings all! > >Anybody notice changeable weather lately? It’s that global cooling. >I’m sure you all remember that we were chased off the playa last >year just two days before the annual BLM Playa inspection by a >torrential rain storm leaving a massive lake that remained through >the winter and most of the spring, resulting in the extended >postponement of this inspection. > >

This last Sunday of June 5th was when the Playa inspection was >rescheduled, and again we passed it by a large and comfortable >margin! So congratulations to the DPW Playa Restoration crew, all >the staff and various crews of our growing community, and really to >all of the participants who picked their camps clean and forever >keep one of our vital principals forefront in their minds and >actions. >

That is the one of leaving no trace. It is instrumental in the >survival of the very event itself. > >

Equally good news is that the lake that has been washing around >since last October has literally scrubbed the playa flat again, and >it is like driving on pavement. It’s the best conditions I have >seen in my sixteen years. It will never stop astounding me out >there! > >Thanks again to all of you. > >Tony “Coyote” Perez >City Superintendent >DPW / BRC
