How to get to the Aeropac launch site

Getting to the Aeropac Launch Site

To help other folks navigate to the Aeropac.org launch site using GPS coordinated here is a page that can help! The directions below assume you first get to Gerlach NV, USA. After that you can use the GPS coordinated to get to the launch site. Below are the GPS waypoints that will help guide you to the site:

Gerlach NV - 40° 39.127'N 119° 21.363'W – Use Google maps of other navigation to get here first. After this use NV country road 34 to get to the 12 mile Playa entrance. 

12 MI Entrance - 40° 46.334'N 119° 15.756'W - This is the best entrance to use to get to the site. Drive straight in and to the NE. There is a bumpy intersection that goes to the Burning Man site, do NOT turn right! The road will go about 1 mile in and start a gentle bend to the NNE. This takes us to the next weigh-point 1.4mi in.

West Road Bend - 40° 47.108'N 119° 14.524'W - This is the center of the bend more to the NNE. After this it will straighten out and you drive up to the next point 3.5 mi NE.

Turn East to launch site - 40° 49.572'N 119° 12.167'W - This is supposed to be at the location where the double pylon marker is just down the road, and the tire (unless someone took it). At this point we drive about to the NE 5.8 miles directly to the Aeropac location. 

Aeropac Launch Site - 40° 52.241'N 119° 6.417'W

 - When you get out there we should be at least close to this point depending on the local playa conditions. We will be within easy eyesight.
