Backroute to Burning Man

I realized that there's a "share your route" feature at Bikely, and following is a map of my proposed back route in to Burning Man this year. I'd really really rather not ride on 447 between Fernley and Black Rock City (Burning Man) and after hearing that a fellow Burner who I mentioned in an earlier post (Mike) had ridden a back-route, I decided to post this and see what kind of comments I might get from the blogosphere. Anyone out there ridden or driven this route? It appears to be a train track access road, so I would assume (not always a good thing to do!) that it's somewhat maintained considering that the tracks are used regularly and have to be maintained from time to time. All comments and info are welcome and encouraged!

Well I don't know about the road, but I do have a friend who was hitching in Reno and got a ride from a guy in a pickup who took him to a railroad yard and said hop on and ended up taking him to BM on his train. That's a good way to sneak in.

Hello wild Nollij, Mike here checkin out ur blog, zomadic, and uur sweet playa machine. fun to see your pictures. I considered that route home, after speaking with a local BLM rep. I decided my skinny tires would not be welcomed in a few miles of soft sand at the northern end of that route... So, Lets go do it and find out for ourselves. ... Mango
