Re: Mod abuse: Looks like I'm leaving?

I looked at it. That's sponsored by the city of Chicago/Chicago Parks No, AntiM, it's not. The Chicago Full Moon Fire Jam is held in one of the parks (Lincon Park) in the city of Chicago, but it is not held by the city of Chicago or the Chicago Park District. It is an event held mostly by burners t...

Re: Salon takes a hatchet to Burning Man?

Holy ... that is policy! So this is one of those times. Starting in 2015, handheld lasers will be prohibited in Black Rock City. Mounted lasers are only permitted on art pieces, Mutant Vehicles and in theme camps if they comply with specific restrictions. Forget that. I have NO desire to go to Burni...

Re: Salon takes a hatchet to Burning Man?

Doesn't really address the issue, if the blinding was done by a vehicle mounted laser, now does it, Traveller? Oh, and ... what? Seriously, you're defending the idea of vehicle mounted lasers? I've been working under the assumption that like those Satanic human sacrifices, the vehicle mounted lasers...

Re: Regionals on a lake/ocean

Most people don't own boats of houseboats, and renting them, including transport, would be very expensive. I love the idea, but it would not be financially feasible for many. Maybe, maybe not. An actual houseboat, which is expected to be functional for years, would be extremely pricey, but a tempor...

Re: Input on bringing my dude Big Daddy Crawler (a tracked vehicle) next year

I have a crawler/loader/backhoe endearingly named Big Daddy Crawler. Specifically, it's a 1976 JD 350-C, for any gearheads that care. I am thinking of turning it into a mutant vehicle next year. DMV does allow tracked vehicles. My only concern is my grousers (the pads on the tracks), as they are sl...

Found Images of Burning Man Art Installations

The concept of this thread is simple. Find a photo (or photos) of art installations at Burning Man that weren't taken by you or anybody you know, of art that neither you nor anybody you know created, and share them here. Mention the name of the installation and the year in which it appeared on the P...

I picture you standing with your arms crossed defiantly across your chest and your chin jutting. Not really. For the most part, in person, I try to fade into the background. As I am well over six feet in height, the effect of this is mildly comical, I'm told. A strong and yet distant look in your e...

Liking the fact that your camp name is a reference to the Czech writer Karel Čapek. If you're interested, tell us a bit about yourselves! Is there anything you'd like to add to our camp?
