Free Dump Station at Cabelas in Verdi

Hey everyone,
I just got back from the Cabelas in Verdi and they have opened their RV dump station and its free for customers (that means you!) . So if you are headed west on I-80 after the burn you can dump for free.

The dump station is in the west most part of the parking area right next to the RV parking. It has non potable water on a hose attached to a boom.

Enjoy
Doug

Burning Man Camp layout

Nevada Geo and I will be arriving at Burning Man early (Aug.22 & 23) and will take over the camp layout task described previously by Zep. Look for yellow CAUTION TAPE and our 31 foot Airstreams. We will also be monitoring MURS channel 3 and FRS Channel 10, sub channel 2.
See you at the burn!

Hey that window Man is neat. Wonder if I can find some vinyl or mylar sheet that would work in my printer.

I've got most of the El wire Dragon made and firing, but I haven't figured how to make it hold it's shape yet. Looks more like a pollywog with bad gas today. Should make a marker on the playa anyway. That Phat wire is like trying to make vinyl spark plug wires hold a design.
You folks hitting the road today and soon, be carefull on the drive. You can get most anything you want, excepting Alice, within a few blocks of the east exit of Fernley. Wal-Mart, Lowes, Amazon Books, Tire shop, Kragen auto parts, Scholaris groceries, casino, half a dozen fast food joints right south of the exit. Propane probably at the truck stops, and at the Chevron a mile or so into town.
The west exit of Fernely is the road up to Wadsworth-Pyramid Lake-Gerlock.
See yall in a few days!!

Red face Our Location

Could someone let us know exactly where we are going to be at? Is it Gremlin @ 3:30? Or are we just trying to be in that vicinity? If not there, then how do we find everyone (other than looking for a bunch of silver twinkies for days?) Thanks guys! Can't wait!

Hi Kim,

Unfortunately it is not possible to "Stake" claim to land at Burning Man without being a registered "Theme Camp" which we are not.

Thru all the work of Zep the area of Gremlin @ 3:30 is the proposed landing zone.

Markparker22 and NavadaJoe will be on site early and this will be a big help in securing placement, thanks guys!

It can be unnerving not knowing...

TH GREAT HUMONGOUS guarantee:

You will not be a lost sheep.
You will not drive around for days.
You will find the flock.
You will see many things.
You will meet many people.

Nothing about this Burning Man rally will be typical, and isn't that great!

Relax and enjoy to trip.


C U in a few days

The great Humongous

Unhappy

I'm sorry to say that I have to bail out this year. Work has been slow all year and just in the last month has taken off to the max. No time to playa right now, but next year for sure. Have a great time all!

As an aid to find our Burning Man rally camp location I will do the following:
If we are NOT at 3:30 and Gremlin I will post a sign on one corner of 3:30 and Gremlin that says "AIRFORUMS CAMP, (location)". Look for a wooden sign on a piece of rebar.

We are taking the Cortez MoHo, and not the AS. Still silver, well, primer gray anyhow. Pics included so you will recognize us. Imagine the ribbons blowing in the wind.

Change Of Plans!

Dear Fellow Burners,

Please accept our sincere apologies. There's been a change of plans. Please don't "wait up for us". Thank you for making us feel so welcome. We'll stop by sometime in the week to say hello on the playa.

We're sorry we won't be camping with you but look forward to meeting all of you, if not on the Playa, someday soon, somewhere down the road.

Have a great burn!
