Re: Ride offered RNO to BM

I'm picking up a car at Reno airport tomorrow and heading to gerlach to look for a ticket so the closest I can get you to BM is the gate. (please keep this in mind as 2 people changed their mind @ the last minute). Anyhow I'll be leaving @ 10am and I can stop at walmart or one other place but that'...

Re: Last minute ticket discussion thread

Having been through the area recently, I'd advise against that kind of dumb shit. Signs are on the road to advise that it's a sellout, and the scalper scumbags are all asking to buy and not offering tickets for sale. If you don't have one from a trusted source by this point, this may not be the yea...

Last minute ticket discussion thread

Any plans on how to best get that last minute ticket?? So far I'm thinking (1) I've "heard" the gas station in Gerlach will be a happening place next week and as far as will call tickets go you almost have to be there to get a deal done safely.......there seem to be some ticket scams happening, and ...

Re: How not to get scammed buying tickets

If I can't pay through paypal or go to the gate with the person I wouldn't make the deal..........I've heard a lot about people "saying" they were scammed. It's just too easy to be walking around with a email copy and a fake id.

Re: How not to get scammed buying tickets

Also I've read a couple threads on will call tickets and the procedure "sounds" right but........I would really rather have the person with me @ the gate. Am I asking for too much here??

How not to get scammed buying tickets

So I'm @ the Reno airport and met this guy passing through selling tickets for $200. He said they are will call and he can give me the email confirm, a copy of his ID, an hand written note of sale, and the last 4 digits of the card used to purchase. I asked if I can go with him to the will call line...

Re: Dont have a camp? Join us!!!

Do not count on this. There is no iron-clad reliable way to get this information out once someone is on the playa. This is why there are multiple fallbacks to find on the playa. Relax--it's part of the adventure. All set for the adventure!! Question: Vehicles are not allowed on playa, how do I driv...

Re: Mid week arrival

thanks for the link. It doesn't really specify late arrivals but does mention "after dark" but that could just mean monday night. I just want to make sure the roads wont be closed to cars b/c I've read some posts saying you cannot drive around during BM??

Re: Can't help getting nervous about my car rental.

I dont think it's illegal and technically when you sign the contract you acknowledge you will follow their rules (i.e. no off road driving) But being that BM will have it's own post office, street names, ect, maybe it's not really considered "off roading"??? I'm not familiar with all car rental comp...

Re: Pets?

Thanks for the replies everyone. I found a kennel in north reno (on way to bm) that looks good http://www.fantasiapetresort.com/ I'd rather find a kennel in a rural area with some land than in the city. There's one down the street from my hotel (harrahs) that has like 20 dogs in ONE room!! lol I don...

and hope the suv doesn't have satellite tracking on it.........I don't know about Alamo but some rental companies dont want their cars driven out of state/off road and have ways to keep track where they are

Mid week arrival

I'm planning on arriving Thursday. Will I be able to drive where I want to go inside BM (will the streets be open to cars) or will I have to park somewhere and walk?

Re: Pets?

Just fed my dog all kinds of good food from Harrahs buffet (there's so much waste in the land of the overindulged I dont think a few pieces of chicken will matter)......if HE knew I was going to take him to a kennel just to go to a arts fest/rave in the desert he'd probably bite me. lol

Oh well.....

Re: Water transporting

I just got into town (reno) and the walmart off mccarran has 55 gallon water drums for $49. I've never seen a walmart with these before. I'm thinking of buying one and using for bathing/cooking ect as 50 single gallons would be about the same price.

So yeah....the walmarts are ready for everyone!!

Has anyone used a ATT air-card on the playa? I might need to do some work and it would be nice if I knew how well these work for internet access.
