Here are two simple, prudent things to do: #1) read the Survival Guide, and #2) take out a large life insurance policy on yourself naming one 'Sensei' as the beneficiary.

Good luck!

My friend Ansgard does that!..traveling the world...and such.. No contacts is the best way to go at burning missed expectations demolished.. A clean slate! Of course, read the survival guide! Black Rock Desert can kick your ass if your unprepared. Here's a "on the cheap" list of gear"
a vehicle you can sleep in
a good sized blue or silver tarp
100 feet of rope
two pieces of two foot rebar bent slightly at top
two tennis balls
duct tape
a hammer
a knife,water,and sunblock for your stay

Good Luck!
anything worth doing is worth overdoing..
