Help Getting to Burning man

Postby Sizanga » Tue Mar 05, 2013 6:31 pm

Hello all! names Tim from Australia, I'm trying to plan a trip to Burning man, got advice so far to fly into Reno and sign up for the STEP program to get tickets. What options (cheapest) do i have of getting there? is there a car sharing system that's avaliable at all?

Cheers yo, so psyched to have an adventure

At the Reno airport there will be rideshares. They have a whole system. You will have to figure out how to get food and water. We have some others from your quaint little land on the board.

Hey Tim,

There are options from Reno Airport:
http://www.burningman.com/preparation/t ... port.html#

Or you can fly into SF, shop and go with the Green Tortoise Hostel (google).

Or you can fly into Reno and pick up a rental (make that reservation sooner rather than later) shop and pick up a pre-arranged rideshare from the Burning Man Rideshare board (open later) to split costs.

As Fishy says, there are many, many Australians in the "Introduce Yourself" forum. Look around and send a few PMs. Join your regional group:
http://regionals.burningman.com/au_index.html

Or you could join a camp and (possibly) network with other camp members to meet in Reno. See our 2013 Theme Camps forum now, and in the next few months.

Lots of options. What you choose depends on your budget and your nature. Welcome to the board!

I know that a number of people from Barbie Death Village/BDC&WB will be meeting up at the Sands in Reno for rideshare. We have a special deal available for burners. Free shuttle from the airport, lots of open space to meet your ride. That would be a good place to start if you ask me.
