Not going to make it this year.
Closest decent hotel is about an hour...
Sleep in the rental in the desert, make a lot of campfire and HammerTown friends.
Take clothes for 9 to 90 and sunscreen

There is a thread on pirate in the competition section I think about this. 

Now give me hell for the no link but I'm on my phone at the orthopedic office at the moment. It address what your asking. If you haven't found it by this evening, I'll link it from a computer when I get home tonight.

When I race I'll be looking to team up with someone. Like you, I know nothing. If it's something you want to do in 18' maybe we can work together. We would race on different days so it would work for pit support. Share tent area and so on.

Thanks I had read a lot of that.  It makes it seem to be just too big a deal.  I was hoping I could try to get out there and check it out this year and then next year buy the SuperC, pull the Jeep, have a UTV also to run around hammertown, etc but seems like you need that or need to know someone and I don't know anyone.
I've always only had a rental car.
Drive to lake bed, down to parking at Hammertown, saying high to anybody you see that you told you were coming and you spot their rig and camper on the way in, walk in, might be 100 yards
Walk around HammerTown,
Walk to back door,
Make friends, catch rides,
You aren't going to fit in very many rigs lol

You can have a camper setup and waiting for you if they aren't all sold out.

I usually hang until about dark and then head back to civilization. Race day was the least fun imho. Everybody gone and busy.
The shootout was great back when they did back door.

I went as part of a EMC team in 2012, we rented a Class A and stayed on the lakebed for 10 days. Like Doug said, bring clothes for any temp range and a mask. I had my 450 quad still i ran around on, you will definately want something to piddle around the pits in, they get huge by race day, itd take half an hour to walk from one end to the other. If you do decide to go and noone else does i can hook you up with the Rock Zombies outta Norcal, I made a few friends and we have all kept in touch, plenty of party in that crowd. Dirty Money Racing Team lol. It was a blast all in all, our lil group had a falling out over it, but there was 10 of us in that class A for 10 nights straight, and one of them screwed up and brought his wife along, she hated us all by the end. We also volunteered to help with checkpoints and flagging on the main race day, it was cool at first, but we had to stay at our point for the entire race, 8hrs++, but we got cool swag from it when it was over.

In 17' the shootout is backdoor again.

They are also doing a 4500, 4800, 4600, and 4900 qual. Not mandatory but an option for an extra $250. Therw will be live coverage.

All of this per an email I received from u4 today.

Folks ride off course, pre-run parts of the course, night ride on and off course. There is wheeling to be done all around. Much of the stuff is used during the main race but not on other days, and not at night.
