Spot for a late arrival

Post by Hoverdave » Fri Aug 04, 2017 10:16 pm

This is my second burn, hooked up with a camp last year, this time doing it on my own. Any suggestions as to which area will be the most likely to find an open spot for a large RV arriving Tuesday morning? Just want to avoid driving down every road if possible. Don't mind if it is far from center camp, that's what bikes are for.

I consulted the 2017 BRC city plan map and determined that you need to camp at:

6:52 and J

I have seen that the area between about 2:30 and 4:00 on the outer 2 or 3 roads is very slow to fill up. I camp near there and often refer late, wandering RVers to that area.

Hmmm. I've heard 6:53 and J was preferable.

6:53 is on the odd side of J.

No parking on the outside road in the "sunset" district anymore, I love it! Didn't think it was that cool of an idea to start with...

Might get more theme camps claiming area outside their camp for remote parking lots though.
