When in Google Maps, on the upper-right of the map, click on the chain-looking icon.

The east entrance is all paved real professional now.

New Ranger Station building and all...hence the new $15 per car fee.

Keeps the motorcycle morons off the lakebed when wet.

Yeah I don't embed anything, takes up screen space and bandwidth for people who don't care. Interested parties can click!

Sometimes I wish I was closer to all the SoCal goodness but then I like my weather even though it's raining today.

I was hoping somebody knew a better route to El Mirage than I-10 and I-15.
A few years back I came to the GWFBT&SM on I-15 and I-10
and was stuck on I-10 for nearly two hours so I'm gun shy now
and don't go that way anymore. I guess there aren't any back roads, eh?

Talk about a thread hijack.

The last 15 posts should be re-titled "How to get to a lands speed event" because I have seen anything about the Fan Belt Toss since the first post.

I drove that part of the 247 a couple of decades back in a 1957 Continental Mark II. It was a nice day, not hot, and it was a great road and a good drive for a big American car.

Looking forward to the GWFBT. Those Corsa West folks will do a good job based on my experiences with them.
