No I mean the important question. You know the one I mean. Don't be shy. You can do it....
"What will the playa surface be like this year?"
That's the one! And the news is good so far. Pictures and reports coming out of Juplaya show and tell of a fairly hard surface with very few crumbly bits. Here are some beautiful pictures from Jessica Stanell, taken over the weekend of the 4th of July, that illustrate it well. It's looking like it's going to be a great year for biking, at least as far as the surface goes!
Update: Some new pictures from Jovankat casts serious doubt on my theory. Album of very soft-looking playa during Juplaya here.
