When do I need to leave to be in SF on Tues

My flight back home is on Tues afternoon from SF.

I was wondering when I needed to leave the playa to make the flight?

I was thinking Monday morning but my memory is so hazy of previous burns that I cant really remember how long it takes with exodus and all that.

Re: European burners: any tips on flights?

I've been using skyscanner, its searches lots of different sites and is usually the cheapest.

I think its usually a little bit cheaper to fly in to San Fran rather than Reno but then you have the extra fuel cost of travelling from SF

Great analysis, thanks everybody! I like the idea of the baggies, that sounds like a good solution - would require a lot of 'em though, two per person, plus rubber bands or something to hold 'em on people's feet. I wonder if we dunked the baggies in sanitizing liquid in between uses if that would s...

Larry Harvey's Occupation???

Does Larry Harvey have a job outside of being the burning man founder/figurehead? Does he take a salary from BM?

It just occured to me when reading an article that he deosnt seem to have any expertise other than commenting on macro burning man issues.

Does anyone know the date of the London Decompression?

Before you go getting all snarky I have actually looked around and I can't find it anywhere, maybe it hasnt been announced yet.

I would agree with Mosin.
