Re: Playa Conditions 2014

For those meteorology nuts like me who want to track the weather out there, Weather Underground now has a monitoring station at Trego which is couple of miles south of the BM site. This should be the closest station to the action. Shows projected rain too. http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findwea...

Hi Winebuff,

Here's an option: rent or buy a used a minivan or cargo van, get a 10X20 carport and cover it all with a tarp. Sleep in van, hang out under carport. This is way condensed, but I can provide more details if you wish. I've done this for many years, works for us.

Twelfth year for me coming up. I probably stepped into an RV twice in those 11 years for a total of about 3 minutes, and that was too much. You'll be OK with a tent, a car, a tarp to cover both, a little carpeting, camp chair.
