    Hi,

    I started a thread related to the possibility of exposure from a
    carcinogen while riding in a new area. It is placed in Just
    Conversation. Anyone with experience or knowledge of perchlorate is
    asked to read the thread.

    Thanks.

    Here is the link:

    Because of the recent thread on chatty threads and subjects off topic,
    I put it there. I only "advertise" it here just get it some extra
    exposure, no pun intended.

    Cheers.

    The area is in the foothills, so it can get blustery up there. Even
    when it is windy, the dirt/dust doesn't kick up.

    For reference I linked to an image of the area, but the below image
    isn't of the creek area. I don't have one of those. A fire went
    through there about 6 weeks ago. Rain has caused small weeds to come
    back and the base of some of the larger plants are already greening.

    this link has good information that is directly applicable to you
    questions. I believe sections 1.4 and 1.5 will interest you the most.

    If the area is not a superfund site and not cordoned off, I suppose you
    could go but not on dusty days. Bring your own water, of course and
    wash your hands before eating.

    You can always check with the local EPA or whoever manages the site.

    Good luck!! I might really find another place to ride. I have naturally
    occuring hypothyroidism and it's managable, but a real bother. I
    wouldn't do anything to induce it!!

    Tri-chlor is trichloroethylene.
