Re: What means of transport would survive on the playa other than a bike?

Seems like you have less time to do stuff? We all do. It's not the bike, its FOMO. Actually, E-bikes are really great but you have to have a way to charge them. Otherwise, start building up your endurance at the change to Daylight Savings Time. Walk, bike, get out and park your car. Do a little for ...

Re: Jimmy rigging gas station air hose to become a blower?

If you are traveling back to LA on 395, here is a suggestion. When you get to Mojave, the Shell station/Subway store has a do-it-yourself car wash with really high ceiling next door. I stop and use it to rinse off the RV. Why not wash off the engine (carefully)? I'm sure there are plenty of reasons ...

What the others said but here are a few of our rules and tips. 1. No pooping in the RV 2. Water and grey water are complimentary concerns. Grey water tank capacity will be your biggest problem. We turn on the water pump until it pressurizes the system and find we can use that dose for many of our ne...

To answer the question: There is a Cost-to-much-co less than two miles from the airport. There are a bunch of Wailmarts nearby too. The Wailmarts set up Burning Man sections and are very handy. Since they also allow our RV's to hang out in the parking lot, you might even find a ride. And!, they are ...

For us it's all about gray and black water limiting. We have plenty of fresh in the tank and a bunch in 2.5 gallon jugs. But since we are on Playa for 10 days our tanks can almost overflow by the end. A moop disaster if that happens. One can not count on a well timed pumper truck to save your leakin...
