Gerlach Water fillup, lines?

Post by LowePro » Fri Aug 24, 2018 11:43 am

Hi, I have not done the water fillup in Gerlach, but may try it this year (heading thru on Sunday morning)
Does anyone know how the lines are typically on Sunday AM to go thru the water fillup station in Gerlach?

Thanks!

No idea on length of line, but filling a tank was fast and that was before they added two faster pumps. No details on if they still use them, but I can't imagine them going for something slower.

If you don't get anyone coming forward with their experiences, you could always ask gerlachgid@gmail.com

Note that previous years they specified "Cash only, but ATM is onsite."
Video games are giving kids unrealistic expectations on how many swords they can carry.

... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.

Remember to taste the water before you fill up.

We had a big jug of not-so-great tasting water that someone filled up near the playa.

So what you’re sayin’ is you need a test bunny in your midst, someone who hydrated well on the way in, is not super thirsty, not totally hydrated, more like day-old bread.

I’d say you gotta make a ritual before getting to the water fill-up and see who pisses the least syrupy and have them taste the water.

Bring a pee funnel!
