Re: Leaving : (

Rule #1 At Burning Man, anything can, might, will, probably, or might not happen to delay or cancel any plans you have. If you are super time critical, your best decision might be to sell your ticket, save a whole lot of money on a whole bunch of other things, and watch the whole event 24 hrs. a day...

Re: Water and Fresh Fruit

1. In one of your posts you ask, how far the city was from the airport? If you are flying in via Burner Express Air, they offer you the opportunity to pre-purchase water in 2-1/2 gal. boxes and pick-up your water at the airport. 2. Transportation to the city from the airport? There is a bus stop loc...

Re: Tandem bike thoughts & experiences

Mabfire,

This is a serious suggestion. If you are not stable on a bike, you might wish to add some training wheels to the rear wheel.

I say go for it. -~0..0~

Re: New burner with interesting bicycle

That is an interesting ride you have there. There will be some streets that will be able to travel on and a good many streets that you will not be able to travel on. After a day one or day 2, you will find a good many streets (especially streets on 6:00 to 9:00 side of the city that will have turned...

Re: Fuel Question

In prior years, for those theme camps who made prior arrangement/scheduling with BMO and who need larger amounts of fuel, in the past HELL STATION had large fuel trucks and they made deliveries direct to theme camps.

Bradtem,

You are assuming that everyone wants to participate in such a project, that everyone had GPS on their smart phone and believe it or not, not every one has or even wants to have a smart phone.

Good try. But, no cigar for you this time.

Several of us here on e-playa use a Schwinn Meridian for personal transportation on the playa. When they are fully assembled, they are not the easiest thing to man-handle or to transport. Your Schwinn Meridian will not be something that could be hung on a bike rack on the back of a car or easily lif...

What Eric said about plenty of solo camping on the back streets and meeting new life-long friends. Probably more back street open areas on the 3:00 side of the city than the 9:00 side of the city. Solo camping has many plus' over group camping. The least of which is you own yourself and your time. H...
