Report from Gerlach

Post by spacetime » Sun Aug 24, 2014 9:08 pm

Sitting on stoop of Joes here across from BM office in Gerlach.

Long line in to the gate, BM bolunteer said 6 hour gate line.

Also long line pre-Gerlach due to what appears to be the RV gas station and some other vending. Took an extra 2 hours of folks getting on and off the bus cause it was a standstill out there.

Some delays related to willcall has all the buses emptied and people hanging around in Gerlach proper.

I believe the idea was to have the BxB busses on site by sundown. That didn't happen. Good thing i practices a night time setup of my solo camp!

All BxB buses, Reno and SF are parked in Gerlach awaiting ticketing and entry. Had a few estimates on when this will finish fall through.

No complaints, people are in good spirits here. You can see the twinkle of BRC in the night. Just thought if share since there happens to be Internet here.

Thanks for the report, people at home love that stuff.
And - this is why I advised against getting water in Gerlach. It's always a total cluster-f at Burn time!
Most folks at home would rather be there in that 6 hour line.

Captain you beat me.
Any feedback on the line for the Municipal sales of water?

Too bad it's so dark. You could walk down and we'd grab a snapshot of you on the webcam.
