Ticket Handbook for navigating post-mess...

Hello fellow burners: friends and colleagues, frenemies and haters (you know there be some haters :wink: ) Happy 2019- Still dusting off my eplaya from last year, I wanted to see about getting a post together, gathering a collective of some sort of "best practices" thread, for what one should to do ...

My debit card was charged for 2 tickets and a vehicle pass but the page timed out prior to seeing a confirmation page. Additionally, I never received a confirmation email. Did I get tickets or not?!?!?!?!
Please let me know if you find out an answer to this- I'm in the same boat!!

Re: Service Camps: Heroes or Plight of BRC?

Very good philosophical question Token- I really dig the distinction Papa Bear made- there’s certainly a difference between “relying on” and “making use of.” Repair camps for instance are a great example of this. You never know when and where something will break. So planning on that front in the co...
