Where did you exit the event itself? Through the perimeter fence where the water trucks go? Technically BLM can ticket you for that. Yes?

May not be feasible for a lot of us... the rangers in our camp work the temple burn.

Is it a longer wait to get out after the temple burn or early monday morning?

Actually. the road comes into 34 after you leave the BM controlled area,just past Gerlach, I think it may be called something different there like county rd 48. I'll look it up and post later. So no illegal exits, much as I'd like to since the road hugs the Playa and there are ways, but , alas, I'm a get along guy.

I think that AntiM is talking about Monday, not sunday night.

I second that Dr. Pyro. I believe you and I stop at the same Taco Lady every year. She's awesome, gives us a hug and a smile. NDN Tacos are the last thing I eat before I go on the playa and the first thing I eat coming off. It's a tradition.

There's a definite science to getting on and off the Playa with ease. Most years we are Midnight Rollers, meaning we almost always hit the Playa just after Midnight on Sunday, (Monday morning). Love Mondays on the Playa. Really.

On Sunday night I turn my cell phone back on, set the alarm for 0530, get up around 6 and roll around quarter to 7. I'm usually eating NDN Tacos by 8:30-9.
