I strongly advise against hitching. I used to do it quite a bit with no troubles. Until I had that one bad experience. I was beaten badly by a group of young men. Left bloody and broken by the road in the middle of the winter in the Northeast. The savages took my shoes and coat when they left me. Ha...

Another idea is to ride to Reno/Fernley/Gerlach/Etc. and then find a ride the rest of the way. Getting yourself to one of the ride share meeting spots would probably yield good results. Be prepared to disassemble your bicycle if someone offers a ride.

Bacon is delicious. And relatively salty which aids in water retention.

Hippies are generally lazy which does not really jive with the hard work in preparing for and experiencing something like Burning Man. I assume so at least since I am going on my maiden voyage to the desert this year.

I just bought a cheap waist pack. Never thought I would do that. It is relatively small, has a few pockets and I can attach carrabiners to it. I figure that wearing it with the pack on my rear instead of front will make it easier on the bike.
