black rock city, nv
we were sleeping in the will call lot when the rain happened. tony still didn’t have a ticket at this point, even after six hours of waiting (and singing karaoke) in the line to the box office. we were feeling pretty hopeless.
tony made a sign and walked up and down the line of cars to the gate, as all were stopped due to muddy conditions. we were told we may have to wait where we were stopped a full day or possibly overnight until the playa was dried out before reopening the gate. luckily for us, this is how the ticket happened. there was that one girl in line who would rather be at home eating ice cream on the couch.
