Hitching from Reno Airport: Doable?`

I am having other supplies driven in, and am flying into Reno. I've never been to Reno and never imagined Id be taking this route to get to the burn. I thought it would be fun and interesting to hitch a ride.

Any tips?

The first time I saw the Hookadome I was curious but not interested in standing in line to enter. I wound up going there on numerous occasions in 2008, found myself walking in at night and walking out after daybreak, stumbling in various stages of undress towards my camp, which, luckily for me, was ...

I purchased an indian headdress for $100 especially for this... on top of that i spent massive amounts of time on quality homemade hair fascinators and an outfit with feather detailing. theyre all very secure, but word is i cant bring that out there. I know this is to prevent thing...

Is it actually on the market now? The self powered stuff? There seems to be some disagreement about how bright it is. Have you seen any? The stuff I have used in the past was fascinating but very dim compared to elwire, for instance. I had the impression it wasn't yet available? Ah i was misled. Th...

Practical? People do all kinds of stuff to their tents. There is some glowie stuff that is self powered. Just make sure any sequins can't come off or you'll have to pick them all up. yeah i intend to sew them on really well and individually. If im unsure of the stability of that once i see it and c...

Im going to buy a whole bunch of disposable cameras on wholesale. Bulk buying for this, and attaching your address onto these cameras, seems like a really good plan. Everyone ive talked to about this said that youll more than likely get more than 70% of them back. Can you imagine? Buy 10 cameras, ge...

[i][quote="gyre"]I would use single surfaced gold foil if I could. There have been solid aluminet domes and mirror finished trailers. Most tents won't reflect enough in a single direction to be as bad. I don't know about glow in the dark. Sort of a decorative issue. Did you see the stuff that is sup...

My idea doesnt seem like such a good one. I thought it would be smart to put reflective materials on my tent. Something more subtle on the sides, as to not blind everyone (like silver sequins, sewn on), and over top a silver tarp. I also intend to paint the sides of my tent with glow in the dark pai...
