Rofwafi: If you should gather such information... I think we all might be interested in hearing about anything you find out. Please report back. There have been times out on the playa when it was soooo cold at night (and day) that info about warm shelters would likely benefit us all. thanks... GadMatt

Re: In and Out Passes

An additional note: When you leave the playa to go to town, put things where you park your car and ask your neighbors and camp-mates to hold that space for you; or you may come back to find somebody camped in your parking spot.
Depending on your camp structure... this advice may or may not apply.
