so this is federal land right?

how much does a lifetime permit cost? where do you normally camp?

The Playa mostly fills with water in the winter and the surface turns into thick muck that will swallow your vehicle.
The Black Rock Playa is quite peaceful and a little spooky in the middle of the night.

Very much at your own risk. Many are deadly.

so here's a question... if our event is leave no trace, is there someone who goes out on the playa making a record of all the random camper traces (like pulverized bowling balls) so we don't have those credited against us?
or do we do a cleanup of the playa BEFORE the event too?

Every year Burners find all sorts of crap from other events.
