People more or less congregate at the site itself, Eric. Sometimes, 2 or 3 will rendezvous on the west side of town and caravan out together. If you have a CB radio, a bunch of us yak on channel 15 on such trips. It is primitive-- a shovel is a good idea! (Beats cholla.) Antennas is a great site and easy to get to for even a family sedan. If you are tenting, you may want to bring a ground pad-- foam, air mattress, etc, because the ground is hard and covered with desert pavement.

I've never been out there - I understand it's BYO everything, which for me would probably include a tent. Is there a particular location where people congregate? If one does not have a camper or RV, recommendations for sanitary facilities (a shovel?)? Any newbie advice the group can provide is welcome.
