I'm planning on it. Any other tips for camping out there for a week in a two person tent? I'm coming down with a full arsenal of every flavor of Campbell's soup they make lol
Still need someone to drive with though, parents aren't too thrilled about me driving 2000 miles by myself...
Get a tent large enough that you can put a tent heater in it. Bring money for firewood. Bring a couple of pairs of boots in case the mud gets worse. Bring a ground sheet to put in front of the tent to help deal with the mud. Bring money for food, they have a large concession area and some days after getting beat by the wind and the cold, it's nice to buy a hot meal and not have to cook.
When you get there, find someone that looks friendly that you can camp with. Hopefully they will have a shower. Bring an umbrella. If you're up on one of the hillsides in a spectator area and it starts raining like it has been the past few weeks, you will appreciate it. Fair warning, if you bring a golf umbrella that you can fit 3 people under, you will have two new best friends.
The closest market is 11 miles down the 247 towards Yucca. It isn't much of a market but it is closer than the 22 miles to Yucca which has everything. If you come in from the 15 side, fill up in Lucerne, if you come in from the Yucca side fill up at the market so you have a nearly full tank to run around out there all week.
Bring a portable camp chair with a carry strap. The main area is big and it is nice to kick back in a chair and watch the coverage of the race on the Jumbotron.
Go on the Ultra 4 website and look up the locations of the teams. There used to be several in the Washington, Oregon area that travel down to the event and you may be able to contact them and tag along.
It is nice to want to meet up with folks, the logistics of doing so pretty much suck. There is very little cell coverage out there and about 15,000 folks scattered over several hundred acres. You'll have better luck accidentally running into someone that you will doing so on purpose.
