Jungo Rd Winnemucca NV (2142)

Jungo Rd Winnemucca NV (2142)
Along Jungo road, a graded gravel road that runs west from Winnemucca towards Gerlach.

Just pass the Hycroft mines, the road gets much rougher and narrower, leading to the Black Rock playa that is the location of Burning Man. I had been warned that the road that continued from this point was very hard on tires and since my tires were getting somewhat worn, I decided not to go any further.

Update, 2/2/2016: I should have pointed out when I posted this that this route to Burning Man ( burningman.org )was strongly discouraged by the organizers of Burning Man and that this sign is in no way an official designation by the organizers of it.

The do clean up everything on the event site, but you seen plenty of evidence of things that travelers to the event have left scattered across the roads to the site.

You'd think Burning Man would have become a big enough deal by now that they'd have a more prominent sign. But then, I guess if you keep the window down you can smell your way there.

(I do not have a positive opinion of Burning Man.)

I’ll never have an opinion of Burning Man because it is only for rich people and I’’ll never get there. I do have an opinion of BLM, the government entity that gives the permit each year and collects a fee of more than 1 million $. They’ve shot themselves in the foot yet again. Officially demanding that Burning Man provide the rangers patrolling the remote Black Rock Desert during Burning Man - and only the rangers - with flush toilets, hot water, vanity mirrors, washers, driers, and a long, specific list of junk food.

I updated the description with the picture to make it clear this sign is not a sign from the Burning Man organizers.

My feelings about Burning Man (the event) are similar to my feelings about Las Vegas (which is not a sentiment Burning Man would want to hear). On the positive side, it is encouraging to me that a significant part of the population engages in ritualistic, transformative, activities that challenge the status quo, the cultural standards, of society. On the negative side, it tremendously bothers me that such ability to engage in transformative activities is too often only for the privileged. AND, the carbon footprint of such a mass migration tremendously bothers me. I was once curious about Burning Man, but everything I heard about it suggested that I would run screaming from it after just a few hours.

Re BLM's agreement with them, I can see how it and other smaller-scale events of similar destructiveness (e.g., multiple sand dune OHV activities around the west) fit within their mandate of land management. I wish that BLM would take more consideration of environmental costs of such, but I also expect that they assume that its better that they control them rather than let them happen unaccounted.
