One thing I love about Burning Man is life seems at a different level for a week. I very rarely discuss politics with my campmates even though I probably differ with many of them on that score. There is an amazing level of acceptance and tolerance which supersedes our political views. I am grateful ...

A lot of good info and maps on BLM site for Black Rock Desert. It is still unclear to me what portion of playa controlled by Burning Man during event. Obviously, inside the fence but as I recall there is some additional perimeter. This all goes to access to Black Rock Desert from Jungo Road as there...

Hey Pagan- Thank You for your wise consideration of my dilemma. Good points, but "we also know no one else would try it, knowing it exists". It could be a mysterious entrance so nobody knew about it, except the enlightened few, of course. "One might imagine, in the light of a "spiritual route".........

for the past two years I've taken Jungo from Winnemucca and back. Our posse in a Camper built on Ford F550 4x4 (17,000 lbs) no issues there but what pisses me off is last year it took 5 hours after temple burn to get to spot on Jungo which would have taken 20 minutes from BRC going across that littl...

Ode to Jungo

Jungo Road is not that rough but many won't go
They didn't work to find it's beautiful transition
From our world to the Black Rock Desert
We come over Jungo to dance among them
But from a different Road that few find
And we know this Man will soon light up the night sky

As one who is constantly on my phone in default world I was surprised how pleased I was to see "no service" on my phone. Got a little service last year which was a minor distraction but better when it's totally off. Since I can get my e-mail on my phone I just checked it a couple times on the wifi a...

Thinking about getting Springbar, either Vagabond 4 or Campsite 3. They look fairly similar, wondering if those who have them made decision one way or the other for any particular reasons. Thanks.

Actually. the road comes into 34 after you leave the BM controlled area,just past Gerlach, I think it may be called something different there like county rd 48. I'll look it up and post later. So no illegal exits, much as I'd like to since the road hugs the Playa and there are ways, but , alas, I'm ...

Well, last year we hopped in the truck right after temple burn, took half hour, maybe a little more but not much, to get to Jungo turn off and no one else on that road except us and friends in another vehicle. We came that way so we knew the way. Road is unpaved, a little rough but not bad. Only wor...

If you want to beat the lines and you're going east hit Jungo Rd after the temple burns and finish your sleep in Winamucca (Walmart if you have RV). Need fairly good tires.

I was surprised to see this thread when I checked in this year and thought I should report back on the ol' Jungo, since I was the one who started it. We hit it late afternoon and it was pretty smooth sailing for the most part. I have heavy duty off road tires but it seemed pretty tame. Came into vie...

Do you remember how long it took you on 80? Showing around 18 hours from Colorado Springs, which is actually where I'm from. Sometimes these are off. Probably leave Saturday just to break it up. As far as Jungo goes, I have large off road tires and have done a lot of of these, is there something unu...

Best Route from Denver

Just wondering whether anyone from Denver made the treck and which route they took. Google says up to Cheyenne and west on 80 (which I'm leaning toward) but 70 west to 50 across Nevada looks like a straighter shot. Also, any thoughts on Jungo Rd if I take 80 ( have very good off road capabilities) T...
