Playa Prepared!

SUNBLOCK! Just kidding, that one’s obvious.

As we move along with these newsletters we will get more and more esoteric with our tips and tricks. But since this is our inaugural outreach to the new members, we’ll start with some basics.

BRING COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF WATER. You cannot buy water in Black Rock City, so plan for 7 days worth of water, then add 15% to whatever number you came up with. The recommended amount is 1.5 gallons per day. You should plan on drinking about a full gallon per day, but also take into account using water to brush your teeth, hygienic purposes, and cooling down when necessary.

With that said, it also gets really fucking cold at night. Bring warm clothes.

Bring a first-aid kit. Just do it.
