welcome!
the airport is right next to the city.......you can walk. I've even seen, at times, a golf cart out there.

I'm getting the feeling that the OP meant the Reno airport..

Could also mean a plane ride to the event.

I'm moving this over to the Share Resources board, since that's where rideshare posts should live.

Geeze, that is almost as vague as "can you help me?" ;)

What about your gear, food, water?? Have you made arrangements for that to be on-playa for you?

If you plan on being on-playa for 7 days you will need 10.5 gallons of water (which is actually quite heavy [87 pounds] and takes up more space than you would think)..

have you read the survival guide? http://www.burningman.com/preparation/event_survival/

The First TImer's guide? http://www.burningman.com/first_timers/

If you are properly prepared, you will be fine. It might be over 100F during the day and can drop below 32F at night. There is not much humidity, so dehydration will sneak up on you. Spending an afternoon in the medic tent with a IV in your arm is not fun ;)

When I see a first post to eplaya with that kind of question I worry for the person. Do they actually have any idea what is involved, have they even been anywhere on the burning man site besides the picture gallery?? Perhaps they have everything planned and prepared and just made a drunken post? Have they ever camped before? Do they know that dust storms can blow for over 12 hours with no visibility??

Please, read a bit, ask some questions.. Heck - introduce yourself, where are you from??

If you are flying into the airport on the edge of the city perimeter, and not camping with the aircraft. Then you should bring a wagon of some kind to wheel your stuff into the city proper. Just in case you can't find one. You might luck out and find an art car at the airport gate that you could hitch a ride with. In any case, here is a link to the airport page.
I have a little bit of Savannah with me. Shhh...

I am flying to Reno from NYC and need a way to and from the playa. Sorry for being vague :P
