Perceived???? Some how there are 10's of millions of tons of salt south of the highway, but there is no connection to that and the fact that it came from 'somewhere' and the fact that 'somewhere' doesn't now have less salt leaves me to wonder how these people could of graduated from anywhere.  It is time for the BS to stop and the current studies seem to have the same mentality.  

...I've never seen the pumping in action, can anybody explain how & where that happens?...



I haven't seen the manifold that distributes the brine back to north of the highway, but above is where it is suppose to be.  The hope is that the brine water will then migrate over the next 12 miles or so north while the salt is under water.

I've also attached one of the BLM papers that can no longer be found on their site that explains a lot of this....depressing reading.  I'd like to attach the other that explains the 'lay-down' but it is too large (maybe Jon could post it?).  I'll e-mail it to anyone who PM's me their e-mail address,

 Seems that  I post this same info every year;  it's really a good thing to see newer folks coming aboard.

  I use the Weather Underground site, and scroll down to "Almanac".
This will tell you the results for the month.  More predicted for tonight.
The "weather Turkeys" call it the monsoon season.

Forecast:    89° | 67°
     The 0.12 might 0.12 in    The 0.12 might get 1 or 2 " standing water, as the mountains are solId rock, and absorb NOTHING.   YOUR RESULTS MAY VARY....
Average:    92° | 69°

There was a band of rain and thunderstorms that went over Wendover last night. The weather station showed no measurable precipitation on the flats, about .02 inch in Wendover( at the airport) and .75" in the mountains south west which is where the heavier radar image was.

I was told yesterday that they are now dragging at night and it is helping eliminate the high spots.

The late Bob Higbee and now Mike Cook Jr drag at night, makes for better results. Been doing so for many, many years. The SCTA thought process? I can't say.

Drag SLOWER at night. This has been discussed in certant circles but some refuse to listen. Larry's tnt course was ok but only a 1/4 mile off the end of the road. Got smoother after the 1.5. Further down looks better till you see the SCTA courses that have been drug during the day at 45+ mph. They look like $hit (IMO) . There is potential there to work with and be better than last year. It all depends on the preppers. The salt is hard and dry.
