It was an oil K&N filter that slung goo AND let the dusty by.
Replaced both the MAF and the Filter with a paper one.

Good to know, thanks.

Did the dirt destroy the MAF or did you replace it as a precaution? I'm assuming it was not cleanable.

And lastly did this stop your rig or did it run poorly prior to total failure?

Sorry about going off topic here..

Tried cleaning it, the dirt got baked onto the element and that MAF was retired.
I eventually went to spaldam's amazon store and bought a Denso off of it. Been OK so far. (Occasionally bogs down at high altitude). Odd.

Nice find on the oasis. I hope this stupid heat wave breaks, I'm heading down to some of those areas to do some more in-depth exploring again.

Marc, the Combat Base (Terror training camp) was open. You should swing by there too. Worth it. (Over by the betty lee group)

The Quitoboquito spring is actually on the real historic ECDD (Father Kino camped there as did Raphael Pumpelly in 1861) and was a 30Mi round trip side spur. Was a rough but not tough road out there. (Pozo Novo rd). It's literally on the border, as about 150 yards south of the fenceline was HWY 2, with semis hauling arse on the Mexican side.

Terror training camp!!! SWEET! I was mentioning last night that I hope this is open. The Betty Lee mine area is the 2nd objective on this trip, the primary being to "for real" climb Tinajas Altas with the guidance of experienced climbers with real ropes and safety and whatnot.
