Hey, Bill and Val, glad you made it to the forum, and that you had fun on the playa! I was just thinking about you the other day, and wondering if you'd pop in here.
Gary, I was there this year in my 13' Casita
. Maybe it was me? We camped at Summer Lake Hot Springs on the way home, and Eagle's Nest on the way there. On the playa, I was at 8:30 and B.
Cyndi, Burning Man is just outside Gerlach, Nevada....100 miles north of Reno. And the heat isn't really all that bad; I had access to power but only hooked up my A/C once. THe eggs really deflect the heat. But most folks do take generators (quiet ones like the new Hondas or Yamahas, preferably) to help keep the drinks and trailers cold.
