Re: RVs, don't be an idiot at truckstops

Also - pay attention to the god damn fuel pump numbers. Truck fuel stations generally have a pump one one side and a “satellite” pump with the same number on the other side of each lane. That’s so trucks can fuel either or both side tanks. Don’t be that fucktard who takes the pump that has the satel...

Re: Burning 2019-2028 Plan - Your input requested (long)

So are the 30,000 - 40,000 people flying or bussing in just coming to spectate at what the real burners brought? What ever happened to “no spectators”? Oh sure, you’re flying in or bussing in, but you’re not a spectator because you volunteered for something. Fuck that. You’re a spectator. Sorry all ...

Re: Burning 2019-2028 Plan - Your input requested (long)

The event is past the point of no return to what made it cool. Flying and bussing masses of people in, who obviously must depend on vendors (or “camps”) to accommodate them and obviously cannot be bringing much for anyone else to enjoy ruins it. The majority become spectators. There’s just no way ar...

You’re shooting your own self in the foot. Why the hell are you meeting up in San Francisco to do this? That’s probably the worst place you could possibly choose. It’s not the closest city, it will have the most traffic to BRC, the highest prices on everything and the least chance of finding an RV. ...

Re: Deep Playa Potty Map?

After many years of it, the basics of what’s been said is how it’s done:
Scope it out during the day and have a general idea where they are.
At night, you look for the dark patches and try to see if there’s a little blue light at each end.
That’s really what works.

Over 30 people, with burn experience, and you can’t provide your own logistics? You may have a good moop track record but don’t you think you’re a little lacking in the self-reliance and responsibility thing? That little tent doesn’t “need” placement in a village.

You’re making it sound a whole lot more complicated than it is. You probably just need a set of bearings. A Huffy “Crankbroke” is about as simple as bikes get.

You pretty much need to learn to scan and look for and recognize them.
Maps sound like a good idea until you get out there late at night and the map lacks a “you are here” icon... rendering it fairly useless.

That’s called fucking up Burning Man.
What the event needs to remain the awesome event it was is NO services. It shouldn’t be easy.
The more of that commerxh stuff that gets added the more watered down it all gets.
