i will come i just phoned my sister and her husband they live near neveda and its seems that they come to the event
so am planning for next year to see you guys .


The event starts at end of september up to march .
every family or group of friends take a plot of land 10000 ft sq and make a camp dependeng on their budget , needs , you pay an insurance of 150 usd to the goverment that you will clean after you finish and if you dont they will clean it and not refund you .

The area is dived in two sections families and open .

Family area is where there are some rules regarding music and what do and dont .

Open where you can do what you like

so people enjoy the outdoors , drive atvs and bikes dance but nothing exterme like burning man .

one good thing is that the there is privte small water tankers going around where you pay 6 usd to fill your water tank (1000 liter ) so you dont worry about water and these guys makes a few bucks.

the goverment oversees the whole thing but they are nice they only care for your saftey so they will check if your camp is safe from any fire hazard and they prevent theift becuase some people go only weekends .
and avoid people driving while drunk to avoid accidents .

so basiclly theft is near zero and accidents are very few where drunk people just want it to happen .

they provide on site temporary fire depertment and police station and even a small health centre .
they also provide a play area for kids .

even big local companys will make their own camps for their workers so after work they can bring their families and enjoy.

there is also a prize every year for the best camp provided by the goverment .

so its orginized in a nice way. not too much just the right amount .
