I think it was in 1951 or 52 when I took several young college students up to I think was Middle Park, I know we visited with the Clairs at their place, turned out my passengers were well known to the Clairs because on a previous visit they had brought along a machine gun and did quite a bit of shooting, after they left, the Clairs found bullet holes in a tractor radiator, they were not happy. Any way we drove on up to the Park and then my passengers told me that they had a case of dynamite along and wabted to set it off. So I drove some ways out onto the playa, the kids set up their dynamite and a long fuze, lit it and we drove off to further than those kids really wanted to go. It made a respectable boom and we went on down to Ballarat.
Perhaps the "man trap" is the crater from that explosion.
