The Race to Reno

VAN:  Evanston, Wyoming –> Reno

FLIGHT #1: Washington Dulles airport (IAD) –> Denver airport –> Reno airport

FLIGHT #2: Baltimore Washington International (BWI) airport –>Denver airport –>Missed connection –> Rental car –> Reno

RV: San Francisco –> Reno

The van, two flights, and RV are about to converge…  Also, it sucks when United can’t get it’s act together to re-route people to Reno so that we can prepare for a week in the desert.  It wouldn’t be Burning Man without a crazy travel story, I suppose.race-to-reno-revised

The East Coast van launches

Ryan and the van left Baltimore at 19:30hours, picking up Mindy in Lonaconing and departing at 23:00 hours for a short stint to Ohio, stopping at 02:30.  Map to come!  But look at how much stuff they fit in the van!!!!

Nutty New BM Ticket Policy

In case anyone missed it, Burning Man has a new, nuttier ticket policy this year. Instead of just raising ticket prices to match market demand they’re going with an odd “lottery” system that will randomly assign you a price or tell you you’re out of luck and can’t have a ticket. Ugh.
