Can't make it to Burning Man?
Or don't want it to end after you do?
Go to the AfterBurn!
Yep. I just had it confirmed - PermaBurn is hosting a FREE week of camping after Burning Man. All Burners invited, whether you made it to the playa or not!
PermaBurn is only 85 miles west of the playa as the crow flies, but 135 miles through Alturus and Likely, or 150 miles directly from Reno.
There will be water for showers, porta-potties and all the space you need to decompress slowly.
Plus... Wednesday evening, September 9th will be the left-over playa pot-luck.
And... starting Friday night, September 12th, Fixation Station will have their Dragonfly art car and dance venue operational for a weekend of music.
So if you're a Burning Man orphan, you've been adopted! You can at least sneak in a weekend with other Burners and get some playa dust on you.
Or if you're not ready to quit dancing just because BLM says so, here's the place to continue.
What : AfterBurn at PermaBurn
When : September 7th thru September 13th (early and late camping is fine)
Where : Madeline, California - 60 miles north of Susanville
Entrance Fee : 0.00, nada, FREE!

If you haven't been out, there is 5 miles of gravel road, so you may have to dodge some rocks.

How to get to PermaBurn...
How to get to the PermaBurn turnoff from Reno...
Take 395 60 miles north of Susanville to Madeline, California
(the 395 junction is just east of Susanville).
Go 6 miles north of Madeline on 395 to the 134.92 mile marker at 41 7'43" 120 30'0".
How to get to the PermaBurn turnoff from Gerlach...
Take highway 447 north which becomes highway 81 when you cross into California. Continue through Eagleville then turn left in Cedarville onto highway 299. Go west on highway 299 until it joins highway 395 just north of Alturas. Go south on highway 395 to Alturas (which is the biggest post-playa town and gas stop). Continue south on highway 395 through the town of Likely. About 5 miles south of Likely find the turnoff at the 134.92 mile marker at 41 7' 43" 120 30' 0''.
From either Reno or Gerlach, turn west off highway 395.
Watch for the orange or mylar tape from this point on. If you go to Google map you won't find any names on any of these roads.
This is where the five miles of dirt road starts...
Take a left to go south on this gravel road.
Go 0.1 miles till you reach the green gate. Open the gate if you have to and go through. Please remember to close it back.
Go 0.4 miles until you see a second green Gate on the right with orange tape.
Open the green gate and take a right. AND close it back, please. Thar BE cattle.
Cross the yellow cattle guard about 30 feet beyond the gate.
Go 2.4 miles.
You will see another yellow cattle guard and orange tape.
To the right, will be a sign for the reservoir.
You are at 41 6'45" 120 32' 6".
Go just BEYOND the cattle guard, and then take an immediate LEFT turn on the dirt road on the other side of the fence. Turn left just AFTER the cattle guard, not before!
Go 2.2 miles south and up the hill on this smaller dirt road.
At some points the road tilts pretty bad, and there are a few rocks protruding but a normal car can make it with care.
You will reach the top of the hill with three trees on the left, and then come down into the PermaBurn site.
