Re: Thinking of riding my motorcycle in.

I don't care if you want to split lanes. My concern is that it's not like any line you've been in. People are in and out of thier cars all the way to gate. Watch for suddenly opening doors!!! 8) Yes. "safety third" is a joke, not driving advice. In the line on the way in, nobody will check their mi...

Re: Thinking of riding my motorcycle in.

Most motorcycles have small radiators and puny fans (that is if they are water cooled, many are air cooled), you can't sit there idling for long. And simply turning it off instead of idling is not an option? Say I see my temp gauge rise, do you think the gate would be alright with me riding to the ...

Don't remember the brand, but last year we had red wine from BevMo, unbleached brown box with purple printing on it. Wasn't as cheap as two buck chuck, but more than worth its money.

Re: Water Check at Gate?

Make sure you have enough water in your vehicles to hold you for at least a day in case something happens to the vehicle carrying the water. Just a suitcase (2.5 gallons) should hold you for 2 or 3 people for the first day, as long as you're not exerting yourselves. that. Prepare for the case that ...

As someone with legitimate extra ticket who just needs to sell them, I find this thread really offensive in assuming that everyone selling a ticket is a panicky scalper. That's just inaccurate.

Re: Headlights?

Common sense would say head lights. Even at 5pmh, you want to see where you're going. Just because you're bright and loud doesn't mean everyone will notice you - sometimes there are unlit couples out in the deep (or even not so deep) playa, doing what couples do and therefore distracted.

Re: How much cash to bring for ice and coffee

Bring your own coffee. Odds are your camp has a stove already, and you're lazy, instant coffee is much better than its reputation. About ice - plan for the case that there might be no ice one day - last year, allegedly, ice trucks were stuck in a dust storm, so there was nothing to sell. Plan your m...

As the previous post said, it's easy to replace it with any connector of your choice. Just make sure you get the polarity right and that it's rated for at least 8 amps (assuming your panel is 12V).
