The map was with DPW at Decompression. This year there was much more red and yellow than in recent years. My village, Hushville, got its usual good score but several of our neighbors did not do as well.

After the tragedy in Lucurne Valley where eight people were killed at a BLM permitted off-road race it is likely that BLM will be giving closer scrutiny to events on land they supervise.

There is a camp which does not allow generators or amplified music. Hushville at 4:00 and E. There is still time to register check the website.
While RV's and air conditioners are not specifically prohibited I doubt that an air conditioner can run very long on just battery power.

I was near the site of Black Rock City in May and got a call on my Verizon phone. I understand the cell tower is on a peak somewhere around Empire. I also understand that there are not a lot of circuits available so the system will be full during Burning Man.
