Anyone offering a ride from Reno to BRC?!?!

Post by NeTa*** » Sat Aug 22, 2015 12:08 pm

Fellow burners,
my people are all on early arrival tickets, so I gotta make my way from Reno to BRC solo.
Anyone of you out there still has space in their car/RV? My bike and water are going with friends, so it's only me and my luggage.
I'm in for duties like gas share, entertainment or last minute costume designs.....and you would have my endless gratitude!
Keeping my fingers crossed. :lol:
Love,
Lala*

If you can just get to the Reno Airport, your chances are good.

You might also find someone here:

You could also check on Germany/Europe mailing lists and see if anyone somewhat local to you has a rental and will let you pay gas:

Good luck! Be safe. :)

I hitched out from Reno a few years back. There's a free shuttle that picks up at the airport and runs to the Grand Sierra, which is right across the street from Wal-Mart. Just walk across the street, go into Wal-Mart, and start talking to the usual suspects. You'll be playa bound within the hour.

Because it's already been explained to you.
There's a moderator with over 10,000 posts recommending you go to the airport rideshare. There's many reasons. Take that advice.

Here's one: the bulk of Burners with spare space (and often that space is confirmed only AFTER they've packed all their stuff to go), swing by the Rideshare locations in Reno to offer rides to BRC.
Airport is the best location.
Video games are giving kids unrealistic expectations on how many swords they can carry.
.
... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.
