Well, again King of the Hammers last Friday was a grip of fun. The dust was harsh though. Every breath constituted dust build-up on your tongue and throat. But that's what us crazies call consider fun.

I'm sure it was a great time. I wonder how many people get Valley Fever from breathing in that dust? Seriously, Valley Fever is a real problem and you'd (we'd) all be wise to avoid breating in that dust.



MYTH: If I wear a bandanna or dust mask it will protect me from contracting Valley Fever.

FACT: The microscopic spores that cause Valley Fever are approximately the same size as the spores that cause anthrax. They can slip through the tiny holes in a bandanna or a standard dust mask like marbles can pass through a fishing net. A respirator that prevents the inhalation of particles 2-4 micrometers in size may help. Ordinary N95 or N100 respirators are often sold as paper masks and will almost certainly let spores through the sides since they can't form a perfect seal around the face. Miner's masks (or other masks with a complete seal and protection against 2-4 micrometer particles) can provide the needed protection. Also, facial hair prevents the seal that is necessary for the effectiveness of many masks.

Gotta rise above it and climb hills like I did. That was the only escape.
