Well, at least I know if I'm feeling too egotistical and high and mighty I can come here to be beaten back down to my proper size :)

My favorite was Badgers: this falls into the "stupid question category". Fair enuf.

And I am sorry Token, I did not mean to lump you. that was very kind of you to provide that link.

I searched on here using the search function, and did google it, and did look at Weather Underground, which has these sorts of things, but it didn't go out far enough. Thanks for the advice on googling "eplaya + sunset". Hadn't thought of that.

In terms of preparation, my only fear is that I'll be OVER prepared/over pack. I tend to take planning/research to the extreme. Hence the question about sunset time. I sleep, hike, camp, shoot, golf, and play badminton in the desert frequently, so I'm not particularly worried about being under prepared. I know it's going to eat my body alive. From dry eyes, dry nose that feels like there's concrete in it, cracked lips, dust in areas of my bodies that I didn't think dust could possibly access, severe dehydration, etc.

Anyhow, thanks for the responses. I'll try to keep future dumb questions to myself.

Cheers :coffee:

Ok, it's page 2.

Let's say.. you wanted to know the sunrise/set time for particular geographical location that didn't have an "official" city/location attached to it. What I would do in that case is find the closest town to that location and take that information.

Let's say.. you were wanting to know the exact sunrise/set times at BRC. You could.. say.. take the town of Gerlach and use that as reference.

So, let's try that: Gerlach sunset times

You'll note that the very top link on the page will allow you to easily drop down and plug in any date that you wish.. even in Aug/Sept 2013.



TA DA! Now that wasn't so hard, was it? This. THIS is why we can't have nice things..

Gosh Jungle, I thought we had really shared something in our EDM talk, and now you "Let me google that for you" me, AND give me a link that gives me nasty pop ups!

Just joshin...

Yeah, I'm an idiot. Fine. I'll accept it. Almanac popped in my mind but admittedly never googled that. Just tried the weather websites and searching on here.

Nice pics weatherman.

And at the end of this lovely conversation, I now know what time the sun sets. BUT, seems like it might not matter b/c my arrival time is in many ways out of my control.

Gracias. Thanks. Danke

No one is immune to a good natured ribbing. Even I.

Earthwalker... Welcome to eplayan hospitality.

It's actually a much better preparation for the playa than you think. It's not all sunshine and rainbow farting unicorns out there. It was lovely letting my bitch flag fly on a few occasions. (Wall Street perimeter, and water beggar. Filled up his water bottle once. When he came back for more I told him to go home. I was there to keep him from dying, not to make him comfortable)

Last year, my lmgtfy.com moment was asking for a good supplier of hookah supplies in Reno. We've all done it. I've even gotten Trilo accidentally riled up on a few occasions.

You just move beyond it and spend an extra few minutes googling before starting a new thread.

I like snarky remarks and sarcastic jabbing (and other sorts of jabbing as well). It's one of those things where, at first, you're like "ok, I'm literrally gonna pee on your tent" and then later you really grow to love it. To the point where you feel close to the people because of it and miss it when it's not there.

I think I love you people already....

jerks

On a serious note: way better to be over-prepared your first year than under. Do not worry about being overprepared - ever. It may come in handy.

Completely agree, Eric. My bro n law (we're taking his minivan) keeps going on about how he doesn't want to be overloaded. Ok, that's fine. Let's not fill up our water until we get to Fernley Walmart, but I'm not leaving my monkey hut at home and sleeping in just a tent just so we can save a couple square feet. And desert time without chapstick and all that good stuff is horrible. So to heck with him and his communist ways!

I'd rather have the monkey hut than water, actually. You can always buy ice. Ice becomes water really fast out there. I rarely broke out the jugs last year. Giant ziplock baggied the ice for my coolers and then poored the slushy, icy water to drink as I replaced the ice.

But there are people who are way better at ice conservation than me.

The hut doesn't take up hardly any room. The tarp folds really flat, the rebar doesn't take up much room at all, and the PVC straps to the roof of the van.

That's awesome Bounce. If I try to get him to go that full he'll probably snap on me. Hahaha. He's driving so can't complain too much. I'll just have to sneak things in when he's not looking.

Oooh, wait. That doesn't sound good. Is that even legal? :P

OR you can cut your pvc into 5 foot sections and use sleeves to connect them (message me if you'd like details) and then an entire monkey hut looks like this (minus the dog):

Ah it's nice to see someone roll with the punches.

By the way, it's more fun to arrive at night anyway and you should be prepared with more than enough lighting to pitch a tent.

What kind of hippie are you? Just sleep in Center Camp! :coffee:

I try to arrange so I get there about 3 am. The beginnings of BRC glisten in the darkness. Very surreal.
You take a nap, then watch the sun rise. Then you put up your camp in the morning before it gets too warm.
