Re: Volunteering for Burning Man Departments in 2018

It sounds like you understand me perfectly. If it weren’t overrun by the fly-in plug & play (or close to it) types I could see volunteering to work to build and operate BRC. I even used to do it. With the way it is now, hell no I’m not gonna work for these people for free. With the Org pushing r...

Re: Volunteering for Burning Man Departments in 2018

For all the volunteer staff, it most certainly is their vacation.
Except its spending that vacation working, for free.
None of those departments are “a couple hours” of work.

Re: Volunteering for Burning Man Departments in 2018

Volunteering on the Playa is like paying for a fabulous vacation way more than you can afford, then working instead of having that vacation. Lots of folks disagree with my virewpoint, but the BORG has shown decade after decade a resigned indifference to the people that make the magic happen. That’s...

Re: Steer my repair-camp theme towards aircraft support?  

Hanging out at the DMV, maybe with a sign, meeting MV owners and telling them where to find you is a fantastic idea. Have some cards... you an write your camp address on them when you give them out. You gotta do that as early in the week as possible, most MV owners are there getting their sticker AS...

It’s simple. If you need a place where someone else has provided you with bathing and eating and sleeping facilities, you DON’T want to go to Burning Man. How the hell does someone fly in from a zillion miles away and provide for themselves? Well... it was your idea to attend an event like this, see...

The more we facilitate people being able to attend and not take care of their own shit, the more of this we create.

Wait time to get in is part of the deal. It can even be 12 hours or more, if/when a whiteout or rain happens. That’s one of the many zillion advantages of bringing an RV/camper of some sort. You just don’t know how long you’ll be in the line and you might want to have your own bathroom! Also, after ...

You’ve got no idea what you’re taking about. And what’s “BMC” stand for? Or “BMR”? Why should everyone who joins a camp be guaranteed a ticket? Fuck them.

Yeah, that was the awesome BRC, when it totally sucked.
