Thanks Ryan. Looking forward to seeing more video's of the car.

Asking questions is one's only way of getting answers. As a young boy I was always taught that there is no such thing as a stupid question. It suggests that the quest for knowledge includes failure, and that just because one person may know less than others they should not be afraid to ask rather than pretend they already know. In many cases multiple people may not know but are too afraid to ask the "stupid question"; the one who asks the question may in fact be doing a service to those around them.

Guide for  Bonnevile experience.

DON'T wear your SPONSOR'S shirt when You pick up your rental car in SLC. Same for the return.
Don't list Wendover as your destination.
Towels on the floor make clean-up much easier.
Put a zip lock bag, or duct tape, on the pedals and You won't have to dig the salt out of the notches in the rubber.
It requires at least a roll of quarters for car wash clean up.
The "locals wash jobs" are a good start but not adequate for returning the car.
They won't lift the hood if they need the car immediately after you return it.
If you fill up in 20 miles away, the tank will still show full at check in.
Drive w/o shoes to stay cleaner inside.
There is a Chevron station on State Street that washes the underside of the car. It's on the North West side of the intersection.
Check on curbside baggage check in at the airport. Alaska has it for sure. Up to two hours early.
As you return to town watch your speed. Leaving town in the morning is the same.
Lotion under your nose, above your eye lids and the back of your ears allows you to sleep at night. Above SPF 40 is foolish. No tears lotion is practical. It comes as baby lotion.
Just be practical.

And no, I'm not kidding when I offer the advice that if you're wearing baggy shorts -- the sun can reflect off the salt and give your private parts one heck of a toasting, and that's gonna put a damper on your time on (and off) the salt.  Please consider doing something to prevent - dare I say it - roasted nuts.

I am famous! Doc mentioned me in one of his forum posts!

Doc looking forward to seeing you tomorrow. My son asked, "is that the guy on that motorcycle on the back of your T-shirt?" I said, yes it is. That is the 2011 Salts Talks shirt to be specific.
