SOS - Have lorry - advice appreciated!!

Post by 24ftlorry » Sat Aug 24, 2013 8:29 pm

Hi there, can anybody help us. We're in Las Vegas have just arrived for our 1st Burningman experience. We have rented a 24ft lorry and were driving to Reno on Monday 26th.

Anybody know where the best place is that we can find cheap/Free in Las Vegas or Reno:

Mattresses
Bikes
Table & chairs
General camping equipment
General Burner equipment!

Many thanks for any advice!

Find a department store or camping supply store and buy some tents, bikes, Coleman mattresses, etc. They won't be necessarily cheap, but won't cost you an arm and a leg. You'll want to read up how to set up some shade structures and properly secure them (e.g. monkeyhuts). No, I don't mean Coleman EZ-Up-type shade structures. Those will probably fly away.

In general the Yelp.com and the Yelp mobile app are good for finding food and shopping. Also works in the UK & Ireland.

I'd say Craigslist. I'd also say bedbugs. Too late, alas.
