Well BC I would happily invite you to stay at my house, but I am not sure of what my parents would say to letting a guy off teh internet sleep in teh guest room.

Although I may get to leave a little earlier:

I'll (more than likely) have to work on Saturday, from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m., but will leave directly from work to go to the Spud Meet. With 2 - 2-1/2 hours driving time, I should be there around 4:30 Las Vegas time.

I plan on bringing everything that'll fit into my car, which means it's going to be a TIGHT fit!

EDIT:
Recruit and BC Pneumatics,
Thanks for the coordinates AND the pictures of the site! 8)

Do you even have to be 21 for backpackers? here you can be any age :twisted: (though I doubt they would let a 5yr old in lol)
Can't you just give someone the money to pay for it and they go up and pay for you? or something along those lines :P

Erm, no, there is no minimum age requirement for backpackers in Nevada or the US... (wtf?)

Anywho, I was thinking of something along those lines, but the reason people wont want to do that is becasue the reason they need a scan of your ID is so that they can find you if you steal the TV. Don't know who that I fond on the street is gunna trust me enough for that. Maybe a parent from the meet? Dunno.

Uhh... are you suggesting a fake ID? (Or just commenting on the people who want a cheap hotel room for a quick lay, but are under 21?) Bit confused.

No no no, I mean like what if you really are 21? Is the meet strictly speaking "dry" or are you allowed to drink there if your of age?

Oh, I thought you were referring to my hotel dilemma. Personally (and I am sure everyone else will agree) I say there should be no alcohol at the meet, regardless of age. Unless of course you are using vaporized ethanol as a fuel, or have an E85 vehicle.... I doubt either of these cases will come up.

Well if you are that desperate for proof of age, just get a fake ID, they are plentiful around here and I have heard that they are relativly cheap. I mean yea they are illegal but for only booking a room, that seems innocent enough.
