Re: Speeding in BRC on the playa?

2014 was the last year I attended before finally getting tickets this year. The single biggest change I saw was the increase of e-bikes and scooters (with and without seats). I admit, early in the week I was a bit jealous. Especially after long rides into the wind to return to camp. But as the week ...

Re: Rest In Peace

A beautiful, young 9 year old boy was lost in a drowning accident on the Feather River. I had the pleasure of being good friends with his father and it has hit me really hard thinking about what agony he must be feeling. I've reached out and donated to the fundraising account, but it never feels lik...

Re: Hitch extender for bike rack AND trailer?

I haven't used that before but my only concern would be restricting your turning radius. I imagine two bikes parallel to the back of your truck sticking out and over a bit of the trailer tongue. In tight turns your propane tanks or the edge of your camper might be a problem. Just thinking out loud! ...

My point exactly. I don't want to be part of a camp.

Solo Brothers Taking Interviews to Join Your Camp!

Are you a camp that inflated your population to improve your chances or to get a better placement closer to the Esplenade? Did you end up with more space that you could possibly use and are struggling to make good use of it? I've got just the solution for you! My brother and I will come set up my tr...

Re: My camp's prep list so far

Nice work Bunny! You've got a nice camp planned. Like Ratty said...get there early to make sure you have the space you need and be ready to adapt on the fly in case it goes sideways. My brother and I are in a similar situation. My camp is a little more DIY, but taking it up a few levels this year to...

Re: Burning for the first time

Hi godiechoes, Welcome to Eplaya! Good job getting started early and planning ahead. There are lots of ways to do this event. You can camp solo, with a small unplaced group or you could join an established camp. Depends on what you are looking for. Vehicle passes are pretty valuable at this point. T...

This year, I was looking forward to camping solo. Now I'm wondering if I should rethink my plans and see about joining back up with my old camp or ...

Going to the event is the big deal but I'd forgotten how much fun it is to dream/plan/execute a BM plan. It's really a ticket to 6 months of fun for me!

The Meet 'N Greet is on my to-do list this year...but you know how that goes. Hopefully we'll get to meet in person!

If your camping by yourself...no prroblem. Set up where you find room, arrange your camp how you like, and then start meeting your neighbors.
