Also, if you're going through Gerlach on the morning of 8/25, let us know!

We are two friendly folks with WAP. Happy to kick in for gas money.

How are you even managing to get to Gerlach in the first place, and why not the rest of the way?

It’s not as likely as getting escorted out of town by the federales.
Seriously.

We have a friend in Reno who can take us that far, but you can't get through the gate without a vehicle that has a pass. There are no walk-ins.

Awesome friend. That’s a drive with allot of white knuckling.

You are better off hitching a ride from Reno Walmart or Keystone.

Yeah, there is a chance loiter goes bad with the constabulary in Gerlach.

These!!!
Big time!!!
  • You do NOT want to be found bumming around Gerlach or other communities along the way, nor hitch-hiking!
  • Research the ins and outs of getting a safe Rideshare from Keystone Rideshare location or the Reno Airport Rideshare location.
  • If you're feeling lost or unsure upon getting as far as Reno, the airport rideshare location is Air Playa Info (where there is often guidance and assistance in obtaining a rideshare - check their hours for this year).
  • Advice including:
    * checking that everyone in the vehicle has a ticket or Will-Call ticket, else everyone will get sent back to Reno (not Gerlach), and can face fines, having tickets confiscated and vehicle banned, and
    * that scammers/thieves are aware that those seeking rides often are carrying an easy to sell ticket on them... USUAL RULES APPLY!

And you'll have more fun, meeting with Burners and feeling part of BRC before you even get there.

... but don't harm the red dragon that frequents the area from time to time. He and I have an agreement.
