Several thousand Burners who drive/truck in through the main gate prefer to camp out there on acres and acres of free and open camping area; instead of camping in the City. There is even a membership based them camp (Black Rock Travel Agency...

The 'V-Spot'. Where you can go to volunteer.

The 'V-Spot' is located right next to 'Lost-n-Found' and 'Playa Info' in the Center Camp area.

Re: Tool for crimping/swaging 1/4" steel wire with couplers

Try the mechanic at a small airport.

Probably more important than the swagging tool, is the cable slicer. A bar cutting tool or a hacksaw just will not to the job.

For a few bucks, they most probably will do the slicing and swagging for you.

Please do not give up. You are not the first to be confused with the "registration". What registration does is to give BMHQ time to filter out the scammer who might try to buy multiple ticket.
