Transporting Gear after flying into BRC

Postby Charlie Parker » Sat Jan 18, 2014 12:53 pm

I'm considering an air charter to BRC this year. Once the plane lands, how do people transport their gear to the campsite?

Last year we took the burner bus. My sister came with her car to pick up our gear.

Dunno how well this would work out during the week though. This was on Sunday.

Some people pack all their goods into a cooler with wheels. They can tow it by hand and it holds their ice later.

That is a beautiful occupation.

Most of the charter services strictly limit carry-on weight. Therefore you are not transporting much to your camp, which brought in your water and gear overland. In the past, art cars sometimes make a home at or visit the airport or have your friends come and get you in their art car. It's not a bad walk, just be sure you have a hat.

As it gets closer, there may be an announcement of a more organized system, given the emphasis on reducing road traffic.
