Last-Minute Playa Gear in Gerlach!

What? Really?

FOBStoreYes, it’s true. I’ve partnered with Friends of Black Rock – High Rock in Gerlach to stock their Visitor’s Center & Shop with playa gear as a fundraiser for FBR.

320 Main Street, Gerlach

Main Street is the main road through Gerlach. FBR is at the far end of town on the left, just before the bazaar.

The shop is open daily now until Monday August 25th. FBR will be closed during Burning Man week so the crew can attend… but stop by on your way out.

This non-profit organization that helps manage the resources of the Black Rock Desert region… and educates the public to foster stewardship and preserve its unique character. They host tours, hikes, campouts and fun events on the playa. Basically, FBR protects our playa, so it’s a great place to shop, ask questions, donate or just visit and learn about the playa.

How can you help? I may need to restock some items so I am looking for Burners passing through Vallejo on the way to Gerlach in the next week or so. Let me know if you’d like to transport a box to FBR. Email me at:

I’ll be volunteering at the shop on Sunday August 24. On playa, I’m at 5:02 and I. Look for Betty Dawn, my vintage Steampunk trailer.
