Jim: Expect mayhem. The general campground is designated each day, but if you have transport for your gear, there will be many alternatives. At the designated campground you get space where you can find it. First come picks what they want. You should be able to see the locations shortly before the ride. If you have a support vehicle they may want to get there with haste to claim your spot. Like Gypsy said, get groceries along the way. But you cannot go hungry as long as you have a couple of bucks. Plan on $20-30 on the route and as much as you want in end town each day. Showers vary from a nice warm shower truck, to a cold gym, to a makeshift shower at a car wash.Bring your own towel if you don’t want to pay. Nothing wrong with a sunshower in my opinion. Your vehicle can fill and set that up before you get in.
