I think a lot of people don't use common sense in thinking, oh theres a ridge can't see over it, maybe ill just stop here. Ive never been to Ocotillo Wells, but I have been to Pismo and riden with people who have come close to hitting kids or people that you can't see over a ridge of a dune and or rock...

Girl- the folks approaching the top are the ones who are suppose to look out, not those sitting there. You are never suppose to do a blind fly over, period. Unless you are sure no one is there, you should slow down or turn at the ridge and look. Its kinda like the rear end thing. If they are stopped and you hit them, it IS your fault. There is no illegal parking in the dez, just careless collisions.

If your gonna go, go BIG

Sounds like we need some definitions as to what is accepted etiquette in the desert. As I said in the other post common sense is not available to those who are new to the environment. I'm not saying people are stupid, they just don't know what is predictable behavior when they are in different situations, the two examples on the board here working 1) coming up a blind hill, what should you be looking for and 2) coming up on slower traffic what do you do? Sounds like obvious questions but have we taken the time to talk about different situations and what to do in those situations. Now is as good a time as any.

You know when you write a post, then go back and realize that you should have written it differently, yeah... I guess what I was trying to say is that you don't know if the person coming up the other side of the dune is going to have the proper desert eddict (sp?)...

Totally off topic, but after hearing about sweetdevil/roadmap's "accident" on the fiddy, I am proposing ANOTHER new nick name for her:


"ROADRASH"
