Re: Live stream in demo mode

It lets me practice having "no expectations." I think of the live stream as a gift, not a given. Then don't advertise it! Don't put it in the JRS, don't talk it anywhere in the Burning Man documentation and don't put it on the home page, ever. You can not promise something and whip out the excuse, ...

Re: Waze Group for Burning Man 2013

I and others have been unable to find this group. You may have to be closer to BRC to find it, who knows. So maybe search for groups when you get closer, if you don't see one where you are now. There is a big one I see in SF called "SF to Burning Man" and comes up when you search for the word "Burn...

Re: About Waze

Is there even enough -- or any -- cell reception that far out there to make that app even useful? Waze is reporting the traffic status for Nixon, Empire and Gerlach, so yes, that means there is data coverage out there that cell phones can send road and traffic status back to the Waze servers.

Contrary to what people have told you, Reno is a modern city that got canned goods a few years ago. There will be plenty of places to get canned goods! Make sure to get a can opener...

Re: sights on route 395 las vegas - death valley - bishop -

Which way do you want to go? There is LV -> 160 -> 372 -> 127 -> 190 -> 395 or LV -> I-15 (South) -> 58 -> 395. Honestly, I don't know which one would be quicker since the I-15S is a fairly fast highway, when it is not Sunday Afternoon/Night. My advice would be to take the I-15 (South) to the 58 the...

Re: Driving an RV from LA to BRC - Routes and Grades

I don't see any advantage on taking the 395 all the way unless you need to pass through Reno, specially if you'll be driving at night... The 395 at the Sierra is prone to have animals crossing the road fairly often, and I've also encountered rocks on the lanes on that region from Bridgeport to Cars...

For those of you that use Waze, I have formed a "Burning Man 2013" group for all persons traveling to Burning Man. Join up and get reports and notices on what is on the way to Burning Man.

Re: Alternative Route

Well, I have never driven on the 445, always the 447. I really don't see the advantage of taking it since the 447 is a known and fairly modern road. As Burners', we know where all the speed traps are and we know what actually to expect when driving the 447. While the 445 is not a dirt road, it is no...

If you are buying tickets on StubHub now, you are just being stupid. Once the flood of tickets go out in June, the prices will come down and will probably be a little over the max ticket price. Last year, there were plenty of tickets a couple of week before the Burn and they were not far off from fa...
