My daughter needs a ride from Airport on Friday 23.

Post by bazzafly » Thu Jul 18, 2019 9:39 pm

Hi all,

I am putting in a request to help get my daughter from Reno Airport (12:15 arrival) to 8:30 and Esplanade on Friday 23 Aug. She is 20 and landing from Melbourne Australia so a quick stop at the truck stop on I-80 for a shower would be rad. I will sort you for petrol funds and other gifts when you get to camp.

I am hoping to head in on Thurs to help with my camp build which is why i am asking.

Here's hoping

Air Playa Info at Reno Airport should be open as of Friday the 23rd.
Air Playa Info

Through the coordinated efforts of the Burning Man Project, the Reno-Tahoe International Airport, and local and international resources, Air Playa Info was established in 2008 to provide information and resources for travelers on their way from the airport to Burning Man.

Located next to Baggage Claim inside the airport, volunteers at the Air Playa Info table help answer your questions, provide directions and maps, and share information about Black Rock City, means of transportation, and all kinds of Reno resources.

Air Playa Info will be available 9am-10pm on Friday before Burning Man begins through Thursday during Burning Man.
Reno Airport is also a Rideshare location, where people heading home stop to see if there's people needing a ride.
As it's before Burning Man opens, they may send her over to Keystone where a lot of Burners stop for supplies and to offer Rideshare.
Key:
  • Everyone in the vehicle needs to have a ticket (or will-call) or the vehicle is black-listed and everyone is sent back to Reno.
  • When arranging with the vehicle occupants for the ride, make sure everyone knows where there will/won't be stops for supplies, etc..
  • The ride is a gift, but it's nice to be able to offer gas money.
  • Safety: Burners and BRC is a nice place, BUT - Usual Rules Apply!!!
Use google to search eplaya.burningman.org for more info.

Truck stops can be iffy sometimes on non-truckers using the showers. Find out if the shop/restaurant in Empire will be open this year and if they will have showers available (and from what day). Make sure whoever is giving her a ride knows she needs/wants to stop for a shower. If she needs to scoot out somewhere to have a shower before getting a Rideshare, ask at Air Playa Info about a public pool, or a gym where she can get a day-pass then use their showers.

And an Early-Entry Pass...

The other option and "safest" is to get her on the Burner Bus Express on Saturday 12PM, she will have one full night to rest from the flight and have a good shower on a cheap nearby hotel by the airport. She will avoid the long line waiting at the car also, so she won't be missing anything.

An even more-better “safestest” option after 20 hours of flying is to book a room at the Atlantis and have her spend the afternoon at the lovely Spa it is famous for ... they have an airport shuttle.

... then do the BXB ...

I’ll be in Reno 8/21-8/23 then headed to playa. I’m working ESD Dispatch so if she has WAP I can help her out and give her a ride.

Let me know.
