Leaving Burning Man Early?

Bikes, trikes, personal mobility and getting to/from the event - this is the place to discuss general transportation issues.

Who knows what the population there will be. The event may have additional exits in 3 years. It may be in Iowa then. Why worry now, about something that is barely an abstract now?
thank you for your concern, but your question, in turn, begs the question.. why worry about my "barely abstract" plans?

p.s. 2017 was picked by "eplaya" by default. ill be attending in 2015. see ya on the beach!

Don't forget, an accident, on 447 or even 80 could bring exodus to a stand-still. Last time there was an accident, there was no advance warning...

Purcitron sounds a little too neurotic for TTITD. Maybe Disney Land is more your speed?

My apologies. He was not the OP. Simply an "advice seeker."

We left right after the temple burn in 2014. Exodus was several hours, as many other folks had the same idea. Had we waited until morning, we would have breezed right out. You never know.

you know, if you cant provide detailed answers down to the minute about events that theoretically may or may not have already happened, then why fucking bother.

seriously.

what good is this board if they can't predict the future?

you guys are SO lame.
