Yet another question... This is my daughters and my first time at BM, and we are caravaning with a guy who went last year, and a couple that has been a few times before. He wants to leave Santa Clarita, CA (just north of Los Angeles) at 3:00 a.m. Sunday. Now when I "google map" the drive, it says the drive it just under 10 hours. He said it's a 15 hour drive, and even then, that puts us at the gate at 6:00 p.m. We can't get in until 12:01. Does anyone know if you can just park and sleep?? I'm thinking this guy is a bit over zealous... But I don't know what traffic is like through those small towns, plus the amount of other burners driving through, etc. any thoughts???
