I want to come. Do I have to register in advance?

I really wanted to come to this, but don't drive a car and didn't have time to ride a bicycle from California to Nevada. If there is anyway to get there from a nearby airport, I've been unable to find it, but that may be simply because I'm a little depressed and not doing as well with the Net as I usually do.

I did feel I had some information to share about Black Mesa, and about indigenous Australia and Africa.

I might still be able to catch a plane tonight if i could get any information,
