Re: 2018 One item a day for BM list

The last few weeks have been camping in the Australian outback which felt a bit like practise for constant dust everywhere, but more importantly...finally found tickets!!

Specific costumes

I've an inexperienced question;

Is it a faux-pas to wear costumes of specific characters or is that against the decommodification principle?

ie. I just came across a wig that would be perfect for Leeloo from the Fifth Element

Do people dress as characters or more just as versions of themselves?

Re: Barbie Death Village Reno Hotel Deal 2018

Is it correct that there's the weekend $99 fee in addition to your room price (not the resort fee or taxes) for the weekend before the burn?
I just saw on an Aussie Burner page that someone went to book here using the Barbie code and was told that all hotels charge the $99 that weekend

Re: Recommended tent fan

Ok thanks for the advice!

Is laying a tarp directly on and over the tent effective or does it need to be propped up with space in between?

Recommended tent fan

Went for a quick look in the shops here, only to realize pretty much instantly that they were much too big to transport from Oz. So the plan of course is to pick one up in Walmart in San Fran when we land, anyone have good/bad experiences with tent fans to share? It will be to (hopefully) cool a Eva...

So the STEP queue is not like the real time watch the green man, it's login at the time and register for STEP, then wait for an email to say tickets are available for you now?

Re: Main Sale Discussion Thread 2018

when can we buy the tickets from who won't attend? I believe that is around the 27th of April. I wasn’t able to get two tickets in the sale but I’m not giving up. I noticed a thread from last year for people looking for tickets but it’s been locked. Time for a 2018 thread? Strangely enough I’m not ...

When to arrive

The ultimate noob question, sorry in advance :oops:

So the event starts on Sunday August 26th, and we shouldn't arrive before 1 minute after midnight. Meaning 00.01 on Sat night/Sun morning or Sun night/Mon morning?

Finally my first Burn

Hi all,

First heard of Burning man when I was a teenager, signed up to Jackrabbit a good 7 years ago and it's looks like I'm in a place to make it happen this year! Flying in from Ireland with another birgin, really can't wait (and it's still months away!)
