I-15 to Las Vegas, to 95 North all the way to I-80.

SF area up 80 to 505 north to 5 north. Go a shitload of miles to the Redding area. From there go east on State Highway 32 or 36 (either works - it all becomes 36 eventually) to Susanville. Die in Susanville. Get up the next morning, go south on 395 to Reno, then north on Pyramid Way(445) to the lake, right at 446, and left at 447.
It's the flattest. It's also about a 2 day drive - one to Susanville, second to BRC via Reno. I've done both legs, each is a full drive. And about twice what it is via 80. Maybe more, But it's relatively flat the whole way there.
(Um - If you try to go via alturas, north on 385 from Susanville and across, beware... The Cedarville/alturas road is a steep, windy, nasty road. You can go that way but if your brakes fail don't whine to me).

If that be true, and "Google" map works, here is the shortest and flattest hwy system route to BRC from Los Angeles, CA take Hwy 395 to Bishop. Then take the Benton Crossing, Hwy 6 to Nevada Hwy 95, north to Fernley, etc... total about 550 miles. Not a major hill to climb or desend that I can think of.

From the Burning Man website:
Option Three: Spooky Desert
Route 395 North to Bishop
US-6 North to Basalt
NV-360 to Tonopah Junction
US-95 North to Schurz
alt-US-95 North to Silver Springs, and onward to Fernley
under I-80, alt-95 becomes NV-427, which connects to 447 at Wadsworth.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DRIVE THIS ROUTE. IN 2005 SEVERAL PARTICIPANTS REPORTED THAT THE TRIBAL POLICE IN SCHURZ HARASSED AND ARRESTED THEM WITHOUT PROBABLE CAUSE.
Considering I will be towing a Art Car on a open trailer, anyone use this route in 2006?

I would think it would be wise to follow all driving laws as you go through Schurz, Yerrington, Lyons county, but I don't think they are any more vicious then the Nixon tribal police. I even got help one night when a trailer light went out, probably '03.
So, if you take Hwy 95, slow down on Reservatons!
Here is a reservation map.. http://ndep.nv.gov/tribe/tribal.map03.pdf
