BRC Geographic location

Postby SkeletonMan » Thu Aug 16, 2012 12:08 am

Don't know where to post this so trying here...

Is the center of BRC (yes, the Man) located the exact same spot year after year?

Or to be precise: is the central spot this year gonna be the same as in 2011?

We're a group we are preparing a GPS based art piece on the open playa and this may be useful to know :mrgreen:

Check this eplaya thread for someone's interpretation of the as-built center location for 2012, but I'm not sure their files would be accurate for an entire map of the camping area.

BRC moves every year. It is a requirement of the BLM permit. It helps distribute the "damage" to the playa, so that the winter rains have a chance to level everything out.
