Re: Orlando to BRC (and back) in an RV

Your regional might be a good place to look for riders. Having a group that gets along and are friends IRL beforehand works better for such a long ride. If you are riding them back, it is better to camp with your riders. Riders are hard to gather up outbound. Also TMI, IMO.

As the Captain states, the only camps with an excess have generators, some very large. The generators on the playa load follow, so they don't need a load forecast, just a de...
