Re: Mail vs Will Call for getting tickets - pros/cons?

I've done both and honestly I don't mind waiting in the will call line, in my experience it has always gone by quickly. It beats being nervous and having to hold onto the ticket for the entire drive. I thought the same thing about losing the ticket. Last year was my first burn. I had a paper ticket...

Re: Electrolytes for Virgins

I usually drink one or two everyday, occasionally three... It just depends how depleted you feel. Just drink one and see how you feel in a half hour. Ok, thanks. I ordered 3 boxes of 6 packets from amazon = 18 total, which now sounds marginally enough. Ooops, just checked the amazon order and by mi...

Re: Electrolytes for Virgins

Something I am not clear about from reading this thread is how much electrolyte supplement to drink. Pedialyte seems to get universal good reviews. Not to discuss if it is the best or not. Rather since I have already decided on Pedialyte my specific question is how much Pedialyte I should drink. Eve...

Re: NEW BURNER FROM CHICAGO IL

Sorry that I caused confusion. In my last post I was referring to the Meet'n'Greet that you had talked about in your previous post. Not the Newbie Night. I had noticed that for the Meet'n'Greet facebook said the time is 8 PM - 11 PM, but the regional events page said 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM. I assume tha...

Re: NEW BURNER FROM CHICAGO IL

Thanks!

From your pointer above I also found it in the BurningManChicago facebook group and in the burning man regional events page.

I notice that on facebook it says the time is 8 PM - 11 PM, then in the regional events page it says 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM.

Re: NEW BURNER FROM CHICAGO IL

oh, and welcome. Thanks! www.burningmanchicago.org/events/ now showing events! I had already joined the BurningManChicago facebook group and looked at it a few times, but I guess that I didn't catch it as being a primary place for announcements. I will start watching it more closely. This is probab...

Re: NEW BURNER FROM CHICAGO IL

I am also new (have a ticket to BRC) and from Chicago. It seems that there are no local burning man events in Chicago this summer. Last year (before I was actually planning to go) there were events. I went to the last two full moon jams by Foster Ave and the lake last Fall. This summer the Chicago r...

Re: Main Sale Discussion Thread 2018

I had read that in 2017 tickets sold out in 20 minutes. I read someplace someone saying that actually the sale was probably over in 3 minutes if not 3 seconds, and the rest of the time was processing orders in the queue. Now that I have been through it I believe what I read was misinformation. That ...

Re: Main Sale Discussion Thread 2018

Will call is a 4-8 hour wait in the baking sun. There are 500 People who don't have their paperwork in order. 5 ticket windows are open. Unless you go very late at night, Avoid will call. It's a clusterfuck. Hmmm, not good. Thanks for the warning. Reading the burning man website tickets discussion ...

Re: Main Sale Discussion Thread 2018

That may have been the most stressful thing I have ever done sitting in a room alone staring at the computer. First waiting for the sale to start, not clear what was going to happen, whether I would need to enter information quickly. But no, into the waiting room, ok I see how it works. Then waiting...
