Top 10 Things to Bring to Burning Man when Traveling in an RV

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

Burning Man is an experience like no other. It’s different for everyone who goes and changes every year. But it is still one of those festivals that cannot be missed. Traveling in style, in an RV that is, isn’t a must but it provides some creature comforts to the experience, that by the end of the week, you’ll be dreaming of.

RV’ing at Burning Man? Here are some “must have” items:

WATER! – You can never have too much water. From the water you need to drink, to the elusive water for a shower, to the lemon water needed to clean out all of that Playa dust. The lemon in the water will help with the alkaline in the dust and your skin will love it. More is better.

Hide-a-Key – If you’re traveling with more then just yourself, have a hide a key hidden somewhere on your RV is handy to have. That way people can come and go without worry of loosing a key or not having enough keys for everyone.

Shade – Even if you have a generator and air conditioning there’s nothing like sitting outside in the shade and enjoying the buzz around you and meeting new people. But make sure it’s sound enough to stand against those high winds!

Ziplock Bags – it’s always nice to have some fresh clean clothes to drive home in. Plus don’t forget to keep your electronics (phone, camera, etc) safe from the dust, along with prepared meals.

Garbage Bags – Remember that Burning Man runs on a ‘what you bring you leave with’ campaign. So when packing don’t forget to bring things that can either be cleaned and reused or burned, otherwise you’ll be driving out with more trash then your RV can carry.

Medical Kit and Extra Toilet Paper (1ply) – From stepping on rebar to just being plain clumsy, it’s important to stock up a medical kit. Extra toilet paper is a must as well, put together a personal washroom pack for when you are out adventuring as the port-a-potties always run out.

Bike and Lights (for yourself and your bike) – The Black Rock Desert becomes a small city, with last year holding over 65,000 people. Covering that distance by foot isn’t practical. Bring along a cheap bike to help you travel. And lights! It gets dark, I mean really dark. Help everyone out by attaching lights to yourself and your bike to prevent collisions.

Dust Cover for Your Bed – As much as you may try dust will be EVERYWHERE. Bringing a dust cover for your bed will help keep the dust down when you are sleeping. Even an extra sheet to cover your bedding will do wonders.

Oil for Your Generator – Either you or someone around you will run out of oil, it’s guaranteed. So why not bring some extra just in case.

Solar Power – Save your generator and use as much solar power as possible to run your necessities. Every little bit helps to keep our lovely planet clean.

Last but not least, remember to have fun and keep your mind open to all the wonderful possibilities that Burning Man provides.

Rent an RV in Nevada

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

Rent an RV and drive through the desert in Nevada, “The Silver State”. Nevada RV rentals are extremely popular because of the diversity in vacations one can have in the state of Nevada.

Nevada RV rentals are favored because of Nevada’s brilliantly glittery resorts, small town festivals, scenic attractions, man-made wonders, higways, and fascinating official byways.

The variety for RV rental fun is neverending, especially with the 24-hour entertainment. Drive your Nevada RV rental into Area 51, “The Loneliest Road in America” or “The Extra Terrestrial Highway” (Highway 50), visit the Hoover Dam that powers Las Vegas’ lights, see the authentic pyramid at Pyramid Lake, or go to some unique events like camel racing and cowboy poetry. Take your Nevada RV rental to the lively casino cities or travel into the isolated wilderness where you’ll discover hundreds of remote mountains.

Although the main thing on your mind may be a Las Vegas RV rental because of the casinos and shows, don’t forget that Nevada is centrally located to some spectacular National Parks like Yosemite, The Grand Canyon, Zion, Bryce, and Death Valley. Your Nevada RV rental vacation will be fabulous if any of these parks are visited because they have some of the most beautiful scenery in the USA.

Mining heritage is deeply engrained into Nevada’s history. Take your Nevada RV rental to Tonopah, home of the first significant discovery of silver in Nevada. You could then take your Nevada RV rental over to Barrick Goldstrike Mine and tour one of the largest mines in North America. If you’re still looking for more, drive your Nevada RV rental to Rhyolite. Not only is Rhyolite scenic and accessible, it is the most well-preserved ghost town in all of Nevada.

RV rentals in Nevada often find their way toward the Las Vegas Air Show, Aviation Nation. Aviation Nation is at the Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas and is a two day event. It is one of the most distinct air shows in the USA and one of the largest public events in Nevada.
