Just go to the Walmart Superstore in Gerlach before you enter the Playa. If you run out of food theres always the Playa Mall with Applebys and Pizza Hut.

I know we cant see it all and I'm sure everyone thinks their camp is the best (and it probably is) but whats the best thing to do? We have wide interests so that makes it even hard...
