maladroit- Burning Man is like a second job, except you pay to work there.
Burning Man is just the pre party for exodus! - fellow burner during exodus

I was just going to take a shower on my way out of the playa at the truck stop and then crash on the train. I will how ever sleep on a floor if someone is getting a hotel room lol or even in the bathtub. lol
The Grand Sierra Resort and Casino will give you up to 2 free nights. I've done it a couple of times. Just call and say "I heard that I can get a free night if I pay the resort fee" (which is around $10). Maybe they have some sort of policy about not doing it during Burning Man because of how many people come through but if so then I've never heard of it.

We've never come close to running out of gas. Idling does not take much gas and you can shut off the engine on Exodus because of pulsing.

Plus, several years ago we realized that if we had some extra gas in the cans that did not go into the MV or generators, we'd dump them in the vehicles. Then there is no stress AND the cans are empty and weigh less. Their weight is now in the tank, nice and low. Makes a happier car.
