Fuck all that. Push the energy into refurbishing train tracks.


How do i get my yurt/55 gallons of water/2000 costume changes/giant penis fire sculpture/bar a) onto the train, b) from the train station to the camp?


Not everyone builds stuff out there. Not everyone who helps build things haul them out. Those people who don't drive should have an option other than taking up space in someone's car.

Everyone does however need to bring 90 pounds of water with them, add on a weeks food, clothing a tent and bedding, and that's a hell of a lot to haul even for _only_ a mile.
I'm big on trains in general, but they're poor for this application, we'd be better off bringing in nondrivers in busses, then we could drop people off in city much closer to where they are going to camp.

Why not have two people from the camp come in driving a box van full of all that and everyone else come in on the neo-victorian steampunk conveyance? Toss the airport to the north side and extend the trash fence to the train station like Athens to Piraeus!

For years I've found myself taking the train to Reno, only to find myself in some automobile covered in food, water, speaker wire, etc. I understand that it's not the choice for everyone. But if the rails aren't busy enough for our traffic to be an issue, or worse yet if they're sitting abandoned and rotting, why shouldn't it be looked into?

Anyone know who to talk to about those tracks?

The tracks are owned by Union Pacific. They are frequently used by high speed freight trains always visible from the event. There is an unused train station in Gerlach as well as a multi track siding. There may be a track to Empire. I have heard there is a track to the closed sheet rock plant but I could not see it on google maps.

Our camp is thinking of setting up a cannon on the paved road and sending each camp mate to our designated spot, one at a time. I'm thinking one ticket for a truck to drive our supplies, and we'll use the cannon until either we are all there or until someone dies! (I'll volunteer to drive the truck :D )
