we'd need to see how many drivers/cars and how many riders, though.

Any thoughts?

Elorrum & I already have a secretly planned field trip to Fernley scheduled, :oops: since I need to make some measurements of stuff I have in storage there, for my son's Altar Boat project. We have planned to go on Sunday morning while y'all are sleeping and return in time for the brunch at Harrah's, thinking that commitment would keep her car from falling into the familiar groove north to the playa. But if we COULD go all that way, and maybe see our dear friend Goathead... *swoon*

I just remembered: Goathead is dangerous. :shock:

And Ygmir is dangerous. :shock: :shock:

Goathead + Ygmir together in Gerlach might be :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock:

Actually I have never seen Yggy & GH in the same place...

goathead is so not dangerous, he is lovely and cuddly and really nice. the only person i think yggi is dangerous to is himself. (under normal circumstances)

also i forbid y'all to have this great party AD go to the playa that is just not fair to the rest of us. (well me)

Can we do both? :P I sense a pleasant ending and subsititue for those not big on X-mas.

I think most of us are looking forward to a fun relaxing Sunday brunch, but a trip to the playa with the Mighty Viking Ygmir to guide the way 8) and possibly see the goat and his woman, well...that sounds too good to turn down!

Would we be able to catch the sunset and a starry night on or near the playa if we left Reno after seeing the bus off??! I'm ready to enter that zone...

I have gas money to chip in (my driving is lousy!) and my hand got slammed in a car door over the f*&#ing Holidays :cry:

Ya better double check on that corking fee, there is a LAW in Nevada, and I have never heard of anywhere here in Reno that doesn't charge SOMETHING.
There is no fixed amount they HAVE to charge but they are required to charge something.
(and as tiny as that backroom is at the Carvings buffet, it will be quite difficult to sneak it by, unless Sarif is your server, that is)
We have an obligation to make space for everyone, we have no obligation to make that space pleasant.

Just called Harrahs directly and asked in general, not under out name,and corkage is only $5 a bottle. If we have to pay it, everyone can pick up one btl corkage so wont be bad. Will be cheaper than ordering btls there. Trying to get decent bubbly and not the cheap $2.99 crap. Still gathering it all up. I will have it in a brown case shipper on a roller so may be discreet :D

Van rental in Reno. Now that's something I'm certain has been addressed on eplaya at some point. I'm curious now, and will look into this because by gum, by all I hold dear, I NEED AN ADVENTURE!!!!

You crazy Burn'niers!!!

You would have to get up/or not sleep the next day to go to Gerlach~ in time to get back for a 3:10pm Bus.

If the weather is bad snowy pass, then we,( Titwi and Piney) will be around to receive everyone off the Train/and/or/at Sands...if its good weather, we have to run down super early mornin(Sat) to Chico(funny going to where your most coming from) for a 90 bday party, then drive back to Reno meeting up with you guys a lil' late( Ill take catch up shots!)

WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

I'd think we could get out there and back ok, but it may take some time decisions:
it's about 2 hours each way, figure 2 hours for goofing around, weather delay, whatever.
so, 6 hours, I'd think would be smart to allow.
So, if we wanted to go to the 11:30 brunch, we'd prolly not get out of town until 1, so "bus back to Roseville" folks would miss that.
Or, leave about 9 am, and get back " just in time" for the bus folks.
A third option is to try to make the brunch earlier, but that probably won't help anyone going back by bus.

Who here is doing the train/bus thing?
I know several of us aren't, so other than dealing with brunch and or getting back after dark, it's not a biggie.

Ygmir

For me personally, I will be doing the brunch then afterwards go spend some time with my husband and my in laws who live in Reno. I would LOVE to see the playa but cant fit it all in. Please take lots of pics *sad I cant go to the playa, so close but so far*

As a large group, I vote we stick with the Harrah's buffet. FJ.... as Paul said of his uncle, you're a real mixer.
