Me! At the Sands, stopped off at Elorrum's for a birthday celebration on the way in. Too tired, too excited, happy to have made it here safely. My mom died Monday evening; no more worries about her.

Hang in there Robbidobbs.
At least you're in Reno, and a radiator is a quick simple and easy fix.
I've been broken on the side of the road to BM, in the middle of nowhere, a few times.
You're gonna make it!!
I just bought a nice diesel pickup to do a better job hauling all my stuff, but I kept my old truck, sitting there at home ready to do rescue duty in case of catastrophic failure... like it did the last time I tried replacing it and that happened!!!

Shit breaking is kinda part of the deal.

And hey thanks for posting, just seeing you on here reminded me to pack my bullhorn! :)

Don't think anything is going to get done at work today, Seeing so many of you already in Reno or driving. All I want to do is go home finish loading and start driving.

Reno update: I would feel a lot better if I could lighten my load. If someone going thru Reno has some space (I know, right) could help a dummy like me out I'd sure appreciate it

I can't believe it, but I think I'm all set to go, on the day before. I still have to go to work tomorrow, but it looks like I"ll have a short day. They know I'm itching to get the hell out!
God damn I wish I didn't have to work tomorrow, that means I won't be hitting the road with a full fresh night of sleep. I'll make it into Oregon somewhere for sure, but I'm going to have to stop and sleep on the way.
At least I got Friday off.

The bar sure is quiet!!

Well, so much for taking a nap. Had to drive over to my uncles house to pick up a baby generator for my parents since they dont see the need to haul the huge one that barely gets used. Finished packing, time to take a shower and start driving. See you all in the dust!

Finally, got the thing that actually gets me on the playa yesterday.

Sweetie has had her ticket for months now, DMV permit long done, EO have been in hand for weeks.
seems like the very last thing to acquire is my pass into the dust.

Now for a quick trip or two out there to stage a few things.

Damn was that drive longer than I remember. Gonna take a nap at the Walmart in Fernley do some shopping and head in. Save travels everyone!

If anyone goes 395, I didn't have any issues. Pulled over once almost out of bishop for a tail light out that went out as I was leaving the driveway. Since i already knew about it He just said get it fixed as soon as you can and let me go. Through Mono I didn't see one cop. But that was about 5 am

Sorry you won't be one of those freaky burners this year Unjon.
I mean, I'm glad for everyone else's sake that you won't be there, but...

*pokes head in, looks around*

Anybody still here? Or have you all left already? All that's left to do here is pack the cooler in the am and then I'll be on my way! Overnighting in Winnemucca tomorrow and hope to be on playa mid-morning Saturday.

Alright, time for sleep. Long drive tomorrow...

Just those of us who aren't going for one reason or another :(

If anyone travels I-580 through Reno, especially south of I-80, keep alert for the 55mph speed zone in the construction areas. North bound it starts around Neil Rd. South bound north of 80 the 55 zone starts around McCarren Blvd. Don't give the HP a reason to pull you over. Obey the speed laws. If you're traveling south on I-580/US395 and want to exit onto I-80 east or west make sure to stay in the far right lane. If you're in the number one lane or far left you won't be able to exit the freeway until at least Moana Ln about 2miles south of 80, due to construction. I'm thinking of swinging into the Morris Burner Motel late Monday morning after I get my haircut.
Safe travels to all and share some pictures.

We are leaving the bar in good hands. Take care of it like it was your own. :D
