Going to burning man? Not going to burning man?
Doesn't matter. You can still join the Mojave Phone Booth Desert Caravan.
Join when you like, leave when you like, or stay on board for the whole thing.

Here's the sorry-ass map I made for Kurt Heidelberg -- and he made it to The Booth ok. It's really not all that difficult to find. The red road at the top is Interstate 15. If I were you, I'd also bring along a topo map of the area.
And bring LOTS OF WATER!
(You can also use Dennis Casebier's directions.) If you need more help with directions, e-mail me.
Those of you who are joining us, it would help us out if you would RSVP.
If you can't come along, you can call us at The Booth on Aug 27. (If it's busy . . . keep trying.)
