DUH, I know...go to playa info...

but is there any way NOW to get it listed? before hitting the playa?

cuz I think we've all been stuck in those lovely long lines that sometimes get you sitting still in gerlach for like, ya know...12 hours...that might not get me to PIaya info...

just wondering...
and please be nice in response...My over 40's is just so tired of shnark...

Shnarkly nice,

You can always email people now where you plan on setting up camp. I'm not sure why playa info would be more useful than that.

my guess would be that even if you could get it listed early, plans change midstream all the time. Would be worse to have people going to the wrong place after you end up switching to a better location.

My thoughts, too.

Mamasaid, is your camp placed? If it isn't, I would be hesitant to promise people where it will before the event unless you're camping on an outside street.

I have camped a lot unplaced, and our trick was to have people look for a sign at a specific intersection near where we intended to be. Even if we're not at that intersection, people can look for the sign there, and get further instructions to the nearest 5 minutes on the clock.

We have also used a 2-3 sign system, since we always camp on the West side between 7:00 and 9:00.

"Drive up the 9:00 side on the outside street until you see the Camp Sign pointing inward. Turn East towards the 'Man. Drive towards the Esplanade until you see one more sign pointing either right or left; probably F, G, or H. Turn as directed. Look for [camp sandwich board by the road][the blue dome][the white flags][the purple RV]."

You have an added advantage though Savannah, the light of awesome that radiates above you acting as a beacon.

It's just a little heart-shaped blinking "pet light" for walked dogs. $1.97 on clearance. :mrgreen:
