Frequently Asked Questions

Air and Land Directions to CARMA
For travel by air there are a number of options - Las Vegas; Los Angeles Area: LAX, Burbank, Ontario; Reno; Inyokern, and Mammoth Lakes. Most of these require a 4 to 5 hour drive to get to CARMA from the airport. The exceptions are Inyokern (airport code IYK) and Mammoth Lakes (airport code MMH) which are small regional airports near the Owens Valley. Only United flies to IYK (via LAX) and there are 2 flights a day. From IYK, it is about a 2 hour drive to CARMA (rental cars from Avis and Dollar available). Mammoth Lakes Airport is one hour north of OVRO and also has a few flights per day from LAX, with Enterprise rental cars available. See here for details.

What To Bring If You Are Camping
Since all meals will be at the control building, the only essential camping equipment is a sleeping bag and a mat. The sleeping bag need not be very warm, since nighttime temperatures will be above freezing. Students who prefer to have a tent to themselves should plan on bringing a tent. Tents will be provided for those who don't mind sharing. We'll do a poll for who needs what, once the accommodation choices are settled.
The campground reserved for the School is Nelson Campground; its entrance is about 1 mile west of the entrance to the CARMA site on the opposite side of the road from CARMA.
When you arrive, check in at the CARMA Control Building to let the observers know you have arrived, to pick up any gear you have reserved and to get directions to the campsite.
Other Things You May Want To Bring
Flashlight, bug spray, plastic coffee mug, sunglasses, windbreaker, hat with brim (for sun), sweater, rainjacket, water bottle, binoculars for star gazing/ birdwatching, and good walking shoes.
