reading a few post from KOH think having windows and heat or a/c might be a huge selling point over a dirt bike or rzr

Our lowest was 17 one morning and it probably hit 80 during the day. There is no escape from the dust. A vehicle with selectable inside/outside air only does that during cooling, not during heating cycles. So, when it was sub 70 degrees, the automatic climate control was sucking air from the outside.

Here's the simple statement about KOH. If you can't tolerate the dust, don't go. There are no options to this.

I do like the prerunners - and the Rangers pull it off well. Lots of them out west.

I've never actually been broiled and flash frozen in the same hour before, with a sandblasting to boot!

X2 on Race-Dezert- that's a great place to look, and Hancho, I've always wanted a prerunner too.

Although, for the record, the golf cart is only 8% as gay as I thought it was before riding in it.

After KOH I want to buy working radios (Tim, I really appreciate all the work you put into the radio system, but I want you to not stress about it and for us to just have top notch communication!), a quiet generator (Tim, again, I really appreciate you letting us use your generator, but that think is so loud, I felt bad wanting to take a shower before bed because I'm pretty sure the whole lakebed would be mad).

Also want my own rig... :p
