Interesting Layout

I believe we will be spending quite a bit of time under "The Big Top"! Do we have some tables to take up residence there?

hmmm quad? Doesn't quad denote (4)?

Keepin' it all together.

I can send directions to individuals or to the group as a whole.

Now is the time to start getting prepared...

Peace,

Has anyone seen the swamp cooler yet?

Pre Ralling point

Great work on the layout Roger, roger.

We need to firm up on a pre rallying meeting point on say that weekend. I vote for a campground for a last reliable H2O fill-up for those coming from long distance.

There is a park located:
Best Western Fernely
1405 E Newlands Dr
Fernley NV 89408
(775)575-6776

Pyramid lake is also attractive, but no h2o.

Ideas?

crap, just lost my entire post, so here it is again.

I don't know what the highway queue is like Sunday evening (for the crowd that wants to enter at 12:01 AM) or early Monday (for the crowd that wants to start off in the light.

I think we need 4-5 members to join up and get in line together so that we have some semblence of a group when we stake out the spot. I think that means joining up in Fernley.

These are the originating locations (not totally current) of our group. Are Burnstreamers who are coming from Reno and Southern CA entering from Fernley or from highway 445 through Sparks and past Pyramid Lake? I previously suggested Pyramid Lake as a gathering point because that puts you further up the highway, but Fernley is certainly more straightforward.

So far the suggestions are (more are welcomed):

1. Camp in Fernley Sunday night and go in Monday morning -- TGU

2. Gather in Fernly Sunday evening and proceed to BM Gate for midnight entry -- Dr Quark (get used to it)

3. ???others???

Does anyone know what the queue is like Sunday evening? Monday morning? What if we got in line Sunday evening, had a little BBQ in line, took a nap, got up at midnight, proceeded to the general target area, took anothe nap, claimed our spot in the early light, took another nap until it got hot?

BTW, everyone needs to be familiar with the marshalling plan, because there ain't no baby-sittin' marshallers appointed (yet).

Dr Quark

PS--A Quad might be square, but I think it only needs four straight sides, as in rectangle...

Ohio Burners?

Just noticed there is another Buckeye signed up. We are from Columbus. It appears from the map we have a kindred spirit near Dayton. Who might that be???

Thought we should check when you might be travelling.

You might look at the new Wal-Mart at the east 80 exit in Fernley for a join up place. Opened this spring. New Lowes next to it.
The Best Western is across the street from the Wal-mart, that's E Newlands drive. Don't remember there being much of a park there, but wasn't looking for one while I was doing the structural inspections at Wal-Mart. E Newlands street is mostly wide open. Truck stop across 80 there would have water. Amazon.com,McDonalds,JackintheBox,ScholarisFoodSto re,SportsBar,Casino,KragenAuto,TireRepair in the same blocks. Propane down the street a mile or so at Chevron, also supposed to be propane at the truck stop.

BM administration uses a couple channels, we don't want to step on them. Some research necessary.
