I think the area within the pentagon is 6.3 square miles and the distance from the outer road at 2 o'clock to the outer road at 10 o'clock is something like 2.6 miles...give or take...point is, there's room.

Yeah, but you better get there early if you want a camping spot with a designated barbecue grill.

Who needs a grill when you can just stroll down to the food court and grab a smashed potato or Cinnabon?

I've already got reservations for the Centercamp restaurant..9:pm on Wednesday night. I got a "Playa View Table" up the escalator on the third floor.

The good tables are already gone...you're fucked!

I can't figure out why the Indian Taco's sold at main camp are crap, but the Indian Taco's sold along 447 are AMAZING!!!
If the folks on the side of the road can do it, why cant the big vendors. :roll:

Those aren't genuine Indian (NDN) Tacos. Those are Chalupas, didn't you notice the Taco Bell sign?

Just call in to the nearest Pizza Hut (located on 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00) and get a stuffed crust pizza delivered to your camp. It's not necessarily the best pizza ever, but at least it's consistent and usually still hot by the time it arrives.

Don't even worry about packing out the box, let the wind catch it. That's the genius convenience of the trash fence, it collects everything for BMORG to clean up in one location using only green, efficient wind power.

Of course, if you buy one of the half off tickets, you have to sleep in the bleachers.

Space is use it or lose it.

And you own mining rights under your camp, but only for the duration.

It doesn't matter how much space you score, you can always build up.
