The California gubernator Arnold has asked for a debate on legalizing marijuana and taxing the hell out of it. He suggested a tax of $50 per ounce. There is no chance of much happening in the immediate future but it is quite possible that things will happen in a few years. If you want this to happen...

If I take the Smoke Creek Ranch Ranch Raod it's about 100 miles but the road is rough and miserable, the Sand Pass Road is about 120 miles but easier on the car and the driver. Either way once I get out of town I'll pass less than a dozen cars until I hit 447 ten miles north of Gerlach.

2,000 gallons of water should be no problem.
Get 2,000 cases of PBR.
Invite a few people from DPW over.
They will be very happy to make 2,000 gallons of water for you.

No problem. Use the RV for a week, make sure it is insured, take it home and take out everything you want to keep then drive it down to your local homeless encampment and give it to some deserving soul. When you get back home report it stolen.

Single ply toilet paper. The porta potties arefrequently without and a roll you can use and gift to others is almost as valuable as bacon.

There's all these nekked people running around and sometimes you see them doing nasty stuff, so it helps if you're a pervert.

There's stuff burning up all over the place so it helps if you're a pyro.

I'm both so I'm in heaven one week a year.

Aside from all the other reasons not to hop a freight from Reno to Gerlach is the fact that the rails through Reno and Gerlach are parallel lines, the tracks from Reno to Gerlach are rarely used.

There is a 24 hour Super WallyMart on the Pyramid Highway north of Sparks, you can then continue on the highway which is 445 to 446 then to Black Rock City on 447. If you arrive during regular business hours there is a Costco across the highway.
