Submitter has displayed an unconscionable lack of knowledge regarding territorial supremacy among New Vegas factions and I demand he be outed immediately that we may all mock him.

Interesting that there's a race track, and Primm, nearby (as in the game). In fact, a large number of in-game locations have real life counterparts. They aren't all within walking distance of each other, though.

I know someone who's working there. To work construction in the Mojave Desert is not much fun. They basically have stillsuits. They wear cooling vests, special head, eyes, and neck gear for protection from the heat. They each carry a small fluid tank in case of dehydration. Their hours on the job are interspersed with down-time in cooled vans. It sounds like working on Mars.

Nadie_AZ: The Powder Gangers have a series of quests if you do side with them- between thinning out their ranks (idiots) and taking on the NCR and Primm. Not really worth it, I think.

It's not. There's no real endgame benefit, and you don't get any cool gear that you couldn't obtain otherwise. I did it for completion's sake. If you want to play as an anarchic asshole, it's a fine path to choose- it just makes things much harder, and you lose out on some other, cooler quests.

Just let me know when I get my own personal ED-E.

protip: don't forget to take off that Powder Ganger or Legion armour that you thought looked cool out in the Wasteland before approaching NLV or any NCR-controlled area.
