Anyone drive on a dry lake?

I've seen some videos and pics and it looks like shear fun.

I like to take pics/videos of it at a reasonable rate of speed to show the dust behind it.

Most of the "dry" lakes around here are swamps with lots of under brush. Hell everything around here is a flowage of some form or another.

Even though I drive past El Mirage dry lake bed almost daily when I go to and from work, I have never gone out there to run any of my cars. When I stayed in Adelanto I lived only 5 miles away from it. One day maybe I'll get a wild hair up my butt and give it a try.

Most of Muroc is on the base. They used to do runs on Muroc a while back but not anymore. I think a guy had a major accident on a motorcycle at around 200 mph back in the days and that pretty much ended it.

I've seen guys drive on frozen lakes.

Batmans, are you thinking of doing a "top speed" test or just screwing around?
