Re: 2x Main Sale Tickets plus vehicle pass SOLD for $1,058.94 (plus transfer fees if they apply)

I'd love to buy and would buy these tickets immediately as well, the problem is that they will probably never materialize.

Re: If you are driving from the Pacific Northwest a place to rest for free.

I did enjoy stopping here, although beware the electric charge which is significantly higher than it says on the website. $20 minimum when we stopped after the burn in 2016. We went ahead and reviewed your complaint and wanted to let you know that we filed it with the proper department. https://enc...

A thermometer with the sun beating on it will read higher than actual ambient temperature. If I remember correctly I had 108 inside my trailer, in the shade, on most days.

Re: Outside services for camps in 2018

If they were to not offer flag down pump out option, that would legitimately create a full blow catastrophe. That one in my book, would be a very necessary evil.

Re: Outside services for camps in 2018

outside services are completely unnecessary when you're actually self reliant. They were the on the block next to us last year, I coudn't believe they were allowing people to set up shop like that and milk attendees for money blatantly... There were people looking to pick up their bikes that these g...

If you get the truck detailed in SF it will probably cost twice as much or more, than in Reno/Sparks area. That calculation could be applied to pretty much everything but the flight into SFO. The bay area (SF especially) is ridiculously expensive for damn near everything, you better show up with a w...

It's entirely possible, but I would never count on it. Having to go around looking for a shower when you want to get clean must suck, how about just take one when you need/feel like it? Save that goodwill for something that's harder to get than a shower...

Yeah, the shower is a problem. No good answer for that. Plan on picking up a dish tub and using melted ice water and wash cloth for bath and then bath towel to evaporate water. And plenty of wet wipes. Shower bag, garden sprayer, watering can, on-demand water heater with small pump... Stand in a pl...

The less moving parts the better, if it can get f-ed up, it probably will. Try flying into Boise, it's even closer than SLC, and less likely to be cost inflated and overrun with so many other burners...

Re: Newbie Order of Things

You don't need an RV or a theme camp. Rent a spacious cargo van, make it your home. Set up your own camp area and do whatever you want!!

And don't forget no matter how you do it, don't forget the shade!
