A minor drift.Rather than take it with you on the plane, send it ahead and pick it up in Reno.
You can send packages home that way too.
- UPS will accept deliveries from any shipper, including FedEx and USPS. Costs $5 receiving fee per package.
- So ship with whoever gives you the best rate, directly to a UPS Store.
- If you're buying online, most vendors let you ship to anything other than a post office box.
Many, but not all, online retail companies will give you the lower shipping costs as it's shipping to a business (UPS Store) address, not a residential address.
Coolers can be strapped shut for shipping containers, if you don't mind them getting scuffed.
The North West store (10580 North MCCARRAN BLVD http://www.theupsstorelocal.com/3120/
) was Burner Friendly (even had BM notices on their site - not there now... may mean nothing as I see not BM notices on any now) and have lots of parking.
Typically they're open 7:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Monday to Friday. 9-5 on Sat., 10 to 5 on Sun..
Hours may change - check the link.
Just give your shipping address as:
10580 NORTH MCCARRAN BLVD, STE 115
RENO, NV 89503
Haven't used this UPS Store before, but listed at http://www.burningman.com/preparation/t ... rkway.html
59 DAMONTE RANCH PKWY, STE B
RENO, NV 89521
The Keystone UPS store is more central, and the SaveMart there is Burner Friendly, and usually a BM Ride Share location, recycle, water, etc.., but will likely be a zoo. (In the past, reports of package contents mysteriously disappearing.)http://theupsstorelocal.com/0949/

They're open until 6:00 p.m. weekdays, 3 on Sat., 4 on Sun..
