    Prior to arrival, removal all unnecessary packaging, and consider utilizing reusable equipment rather than single use. Bring ground anchors and be aware of high winds; do not let things fly away!

Avoid things that shed and fly off easily; glitter, feathers and other artifacts that easily shed off do not do well in the Black Rock Desert and will leave a trace, something we wish to avoid!
