I'm putting together my initial shopping list.
I would like recommendation on the best things to pack and eat on the playa.
Ideas? What can you not live without? What rocks? What sucks?
Thanks in advance.
I'm going to sign up for some volunteer shifts at BM this year and I was looking for some suggestions about the best times for Center Camp Cafe and/or Ice.
I know the last couple years there has been internet on the playa, and since then I've heard rumors of cell coverage on the playa. Is there any truth to these? What's the deal with all of this? The past couple years I haven't really paid attention because, you know, who wants these sorts of realities while vacationing in Black Rock City but this year I have a dying family member and a there is a very high chance we might need to leave early to go the the funeral. I'm just really hoping there are better options than leaving for gurloch and calling on a pay phone every day.
first thank you so much everyone who responded to my post about internet and phone! It was so much help!!! Second I totally forgot, I havn't bought tickets yet. (I always wait till the last minute, so dumb, I don't know why I do it.) I was going to just go up and buy tickets today--but I thought I should ask here first and see if anyone had tickets they need to get rid of. I'm totally happy to pay whatever the value of the tickets/the amount they're selling for now--I just thought I should see if someone needs to get rid of tickets and help them out before I go buy tickets.
I am finally getting together the final supplies for my first burn. While doing so, I took another look at the 2005 Survival Guide. Now, I don't know why I didn't notice this before, but it mentions that "the admission gate will be open at 12:01 a.m. on Monday, August 29th."
Perhaps I'm a little slow here, but does that mean I can't enter Black Rock City until that time? Like, say Sunday afternoon? Or does that just mean that I can't purchase "at the gate" tickets at that time? (I have tickets.)
...this may force a slight change in plans...
Anyone? Thanks (once again) for your help!
