Then again, accidentally locking the car and having to get to the other side of the playa to get yo...

You could set up a sweet ramp and jump the fence on your bike! But then there would be the problem of needing another ticket to get back in.

Take a ride out in the deep playa... you can get some alone time out there.

Yes, they will generally refill your potable water when they empty the holding tanks.

Keep an eye on www.craigslist.org and check the RV section. Most are for sale, but I've seen rentals in there as well. You might also try the Sacramento, Tahoe/Reno craigslist pages as well and pick up the RV on the way.

My humble recommendations Don't buy drugs on the playa! They're overpriced and generally low quality ('cause they're from SF, zing!). The LE presence and lack of privacy also increases your chances of getting busted (bad) and giving the event a bad rap (badder). If you're an experienced user you sho...
