Re: Playa Condition Prediction

I was on the playa yesterday. I went in at the 12 mile entrance and ventured out a quarter mile or so. The surface was a little rough mostly because of people driving on a wet surface creating ruts. I could see that there had been some standing water but it was dry yesterday and looking across the p...

Peanut butter and jelly, jerkey, ramen, quesedillas, cold cereal and canned food. I bought a propane stove/oven at Costco a couple years ago, one day I made chocolate chip ...

Re: Not enough space on the playa.... really?!

Forget about Empire. At its peak the population there was less than 500. The residences there have been sealed and there are no utilities. There was a small park (about the size of a city block) but it has not been maintained. No electricity, no water and no room, and sadly, no future for Empire.

Just put enough in your tank to get to Black Rock City then when your neighbors go out to explore the city syphon enough from their tanks to fill yours. After they have partied for a week they will not remember how muchgas they drove in with.
