I was told by a fellow I'd dated who had been many years that I'd have a great time if I went and camped myself. y'know, without a camp. I think that's the worst, but it's not the only bad advice. One burner told me I didn't need a water bottle to carry around. (And every time I ran into him on the Playa he had none!) I was told that ziploc bags were anal and not worth your time. (Boy am I glad I ignored THAT advice. Dust in my undies is not something I relish.)
... I realized that the survival guide and common sense went further than any advice.

Would you vets advise that I bring my truck and my tent and all necessary MRE's to live or should I get some people to go in on a RV with me and do it that way. If I do bring my tent where could I get a big awning or cover to put over it so the sun doesn't bake me. Also, where is a good place to get an outdoor shower or could I go with out it?? If I bring my own supplies including water would someone let me use theirs? Also, how much water should I bring. I have also read so much on this website and have folders separating topics but you can never be to prepared.

I should gone more into detail. by all means bring it if you want, but my experience is from the dust. The dust on the Blackrock is so fine it is like talcum powder. Even if you do not open the vehicle the dust will still permeate every seal and the air-conditioner
Even months later it will still be dusty, smack the dash or the seat and dust flies out.
Its your truck I am just pointing this aspect out. I gave up on cleaning rigs, and bring junkers, or rentals I can carpool in and have professionally cleaned.
