Puck & Crow Flies

What an awesome night it was running into the both of you on Wed. Hopping art cars, dancing around the playa, and eventually losing one another. Would love to hear how everything ended up for you that night. Puck – I left your water bottle by where we started dancing at Root Society. Hope you found ...

I'm in need of some advise for dye-ing and old vest I have. I was looking on Ebay at some Rit Dye, but thought I'd ask a few questions here first. The vest is a soft, standard colored leopard print with the following info on the tag Face: 50% Modacyclic and 50% Acrylic Back: 100% Polyproplene Lining...

What are the odds this fellow Steve at the Budget on Gentry Way still has trucks left? Are there other burner-friendly places we might consider? How early would we need to get to Reno to ensure the stores aren't totally wiped out of all their supplies? I just rented my box truck from Budget on Gent...

Davem, Last year there was an ultra marathon that went around the perimeter a bunch of times and ended under the man. Brutal... If you look hard enough, you will find any and every thing on the playa! I'm always amazed by the ultra runners. I think a nice jog one time around would do it for me. Fro...

Event Perimeter Distance

I did some searches but was not able to find out what the distance is if you were to walk or bike the perimeter of the entire event. Anyone know by chance?

Also, are there ever any organized runs or bike rides around it?....(staying within boundaries of course).

Thanks

I just got a truck booked from the Budget on Gentry Way. I'll also be going the Junglesmacks way...(Some good advise in the other thread you posted).

They had 16' trucks for the price of a 10'. You can go on Google and look up a coupon that gives you a discount.

At this point, I'm also going by myself. I will know some people attending, but I like the idea of going at it alone my first year. I'm hoping to do some serious wandering and meeting of strangers. :)

With the confirmation of my ticket purchase last night, I'm now officially heading to my 1st Burn. I first learned about Burning Man back in 2001 when my girlfriend (now wife) was going to buy me a ticket for my birthday. Unfortunately, it didn't work out and I didn't get to go. Since then, life sor...
