Fernley At The Moment

Overwhelming impression of the new route to the environs of Burning Man is that the Nevadans are all super-friendly everywhere! Are they like this always, or are they just feeling the pleasure of a little rush of Burner money? Must return incognito to investigate.

New route is to go east from Bishop on US 6 to route 95 in Nevada, thence north to Fernley, vaguely. The friendliness is in very marked contrast to parts of California that used to consider themselves a tourist destination.

Provincetown 3,205 Miles (2449)
Seen just east of Bishop on US 6
, this was a real shocker and my brain took a half second to adjust to what the eyes (sometimes unreliable these days) were seeing. There is a similar sign at the other end of the highway.

Burning Man Kicks Off With 6.0 In Bay Area

Occurring at almost the same time that Bay Area Burners had set their alarm clocks, the earthquake guaranteed that everyone was awake so that everyone could get to the gate on the Black Rock Desert at the same time as me. Without a doubt, some art cars suffered minor damage and a few gallons of alcoholic beverages may have been spilled.

"People posted pictures on social media of a Walmart and a grocery store with bottles knocked over and shattered. Some residents posted pictures of their kitchens in disarray." Those weren't people, those were Burners!

No reports of damage to bridges. I-80 failed to disappear. So here they come, I say from the safety of Fernley, Nevada.

The Man Gets A Head

Burning Man 2014
Click for more photos shot today by John Curley
. I'm wondering what they were doing to the Man's butt when this photo was taken.

Members of my camp are kind of spread out. We've got two guys with early arrival tickets who are on the playa right now. Most of the RV/trailer guys started out earlier today and are camped somewhere between here and there. And then there's me and the other tent guys who are still "packing" which really means wandering the house wondering where that thing is I just have to have.

The gate opens in 38 hours. The Man burns in 8 days and 1 hour.
