Burner Express Shopping Stop Questions

Post by littlejoshua19 » Tue Aug 20, 2019 4:56 pm

Hello All,

Two questions about the Burner Express shopping stop. I see that the stop will be at SaveMart, which as far as I can tell is only a supermarket, not a Walmart/Target type of deal. I'm wondering:

1.) Is it likely there will be bicycles available for purchase there? I am currently debating between trying to buy a bicycle in Reno or renting one on the Playa.

2.) Does SaveMart sell camp-stove fuel (i.e. standard Iso-Butane camp-stove canisters like you'd use for backpacking)? This is the one piece of gear I can't fly with.

From Google maps it doesn't look like there's much else around the SaveMart. How realistic would it be to Uber to a WalMart and back during the shopping stop for additional specific supplies?

Thanks!

Bikes at savemart - yes
Bike rentals on playa - no

Butane backpacker fuel - maybe
Propane canisters - yes

Time enough to uber over to wallyworld - Doubt it, I think the stop is for one hour. They won't worry about you if you're not back in time.
Sooner or later, it will get real strange...
