Placement of the camp?

Hi, My first burn and I am looking to join a camp. While a lot of the camps look and feel amazing and like a complete fit to what I might be looking for, I would like suggestions for the best way to decide which camp to choose from. Does the placement of the camp really matter, in terms of accessibi...

Re: Suggestions for Tent?

Oh, also - don't stress about bringing items to gift. Gifts do not need to be tangible - one good way to gift is to just walk down the street, look for someone who could use a hand with whatever they are doing, and offer yours. It's also a good way to meet people and make new friends. Likewise, cos...

Re: Suggestions for Tent?

Do read the entire Survival Guide. If you check the various resources in Reno, you'll realize you can get everything you need pretty much between the Airport and the Keystone Savemart Rideshare location. This keeps your shopping travel time & costs down. Getting from Reno to BRC, then to your camp....

Re: Theme camps or Solo?

Do you have any experience camping? Will you be renting a car? Will you be driving like you are still in India? Get the survival guide and read it, then make a shopping list of the items that you cannot bring with you from India and that you will need to get in the US. You are going to need to have...

Re: Theme camps or Solo?

Look into Burner Express Bus. You should be completely self-reliant, don't rely on strangers to provide you with anything you need to survive on the playa. You can't just show up and 'join' a camp at the event. BXB riders make a camp at the playa Depot called Hoverlandia. Thanks...but isnt finding ...

Re: Want to share an RV?

Several people in a rented RV is almost guaranteed to be a water use problem. Trust me, no matter how much you tell them ahead of time, someone is going to use up all the water in a day because they just won’t understand the finite and small water supply. Someone will take a long shower - and I don...

Re: Want to share an RV?

I have a trailer that "sleeps 5" and I find that 2 people are somewhat tight in there. Also keep in mind that fresh water tanks are tiny and empty quickly, gray water and black water tanks will be full within a day or two. Expect 1 minutes showers if that is the plan. Thanks...thats really helpful....
