Re: A solution to suicides (at the man burns/ temple burns)

We already have that. There's been a perimeter security line since at least '99. This guy was determined to get through and he managed to do it, but everyone seems to be forgetting that the burns aren't just unprotected. It's not like this hasn't been thought of and something isn't already being don...

Re: Bikes on the Playa

You don't know WTF you're talking about. You're teaching class??? I would ONLY bring a fat tire bike. Apparently you weren't there in '07 or was it '08 when the playa was so soft and silty that fat tire bikes were about the only ones riding on a large percentage of the playa. Even my MV had a hard t...

Re: A solution to suicides (at the man burns/ temple burns)

Doing nothing isn't irresponsible. This guy's action was irresponsible and it's not our fault or responsibility to prevent it with a fence. On that logic, everything else should be child-proofed too.

Re: A solution to suicides (at the man burns/ temple burns)

The thing is, you cannot prevent this from happening with fences and rules. You'd have to prevent anyone from WANTING to end their life. That's the only way to prevent suicide. Shit like fences is "too late". If someone has it in their mind they want to end, fences and barricades aren't go...

Re: Who is Terbo Ted? Should workers get paid for running camps on the playa?

It all starts with an attractive person not knowing how to set up a camp, and someone who wants them to be there anyway.

Re: Who is Terbo Ted? Should workers get paid for running camps on the playa?

Plain and simple, anyone who pays any camp to provide for them rather than showing up 100% self sufficient is one of the people who screws the whole thing up.
Anyone who provides for others so that they can show up unprepared is just as much of the problem.

I've worked with trucks of all sizes and types all my life.

You're a little starry-eyed. You should read up on the actual origin of this event. Eric's sig line is exactly the truth.

Re: Where to Camp for deep play sound stages, Virgin Burner

It's a moot question. Just set up and camp somewhere. You can go visit whatever camp strikes your fancy. You won't know which one that is ahead of time, and it will change regularly depending on whats going on at the time. Plus, the majority of the big sound camps are near 10:00 and 2:00, which are ...

You'd guess wrong. I used to run Johnny & the Playa Cruizers at 9:00 & Esplanade, a bike repair shop with about 100 members, and we hauled our own stuff.
I'd guess you just don't know how to do self-reliance.
