Honestly officer the contents of that tire are not my property. I'm just delivering it for a friend...

Let me know

Tuna guys come from Coos Bay and Eugene areas. I could introduce you to them if you want.
Cheers,

We'll be leaving on Friday, overnighting near Reno and hitting the playa Saturday since we have early admission due to Rangering...

Trailer is getting packed, food cooked and frozen ahead of time, mutant vehicles being finished and prepped for the playa... a busy week, indeed.

Leave No Trace

I believe that the readers of this thread are all old hands at this but here are some thoughts I got from the Earth Guardians about preparation.
  1. We pledge to Leave No Trace in and around our campsite, including our own and othersí waste.
  2. We will read the survival guide, complete our campís Leave No Trace Plan and share it with the entire camp.
  3. We will plan the assembly and takedown of our structures and decorations and tape the edges of our carpets
  4. We will inventory vehicle space so that we can pack out everything
  5. We will take the packaging off of just about everything and stock up on reusable producs and containers
  6. We will shop for simple finger foods and prepare meals in advance to reduce waste.
  7. We will bring no glass, cheap trinkets, small feathers, and anything that might get left on the playa

Well, I'm going to bring the good stuff in glass containers... but I'll be sure to haul them out again.

The trick is to make sure what disposable packaging you have is burnable... the aluminum cans get recycled on-playa - the rest goes home.

Remember that paper towels are a great way to substitute for lots of water on playa; every food dish gets wiped down w/ them. Remember, you can burn the paper towels w/o any problems; just bring some paper bags for burnables.

Last minute job delegations: Virgins go out and photo all the artwork and report back, there'll probably be get together most evenings to share food, libations, stories. Also in the morning. Wednesday 6ish potluck and maybe some scientific arm waving if we can twist some arms, Thurs Allison in Wonderland Mad Hatter Croquet Game, Artery tour maybe Thurs and Wed and Tues morning.
If you get bored and can't find enough artwork to check out, there's always lots of places needing vollunteer work: The Airport usually needs interceptors and greeters (Remember it is an International Airport and they do strip searches on all incoming flights, um the searcher does the..) DMV sometimes has on playa training. Lamplighters if you want to be a monk lighting the streets. I suspect the food commisary can use help.
Four days to playa time!!

We plan on leaving this evening around 6ish and heading west from Utah. A night on the road and then three in Tahoe to decompress from weeks of Preparation. We are not sure where we will be camping but we do plan on visiting Airstream Camp. We are in a 69 Overlander parked next to a rockstar looking Prevost.

Burn On!!
Clay and Kim

"If you get bored" is not a possibility. We are pumped. I feel like a little kid waiting for Xmas. We've made it from Chicago to Evanston, Neb. Elko, Utah tonite, Sparks, NV Friday & Saturday, Nixon on Sunday, and then the playa!
