Re: Elevated Speakers requirement

I have been a Theme Camp burner since 2002 and have never been without amplified sound in the camp. Never has there been a year without connecting to neighbors sensitivities to the sound that the camp will produce, informing them of when we would be producing amplified music and how to communicate w...

Re: Elevated Speakers requirement

Well, I would not call a pair or 12" monitors big sound, but I'm sure I can configure something for them for our half hour party during one of the stops on the Naked Pub Crawl/Ride at our camp. Thanks for the illumination.

Elevated Speakers requirement

What is the reason for requiring speakers to be elevated off of the playa surface? Certainly general PA mains need to be elevated to get the sound out. Subwoofers, though, work best on the ground or floor so the low frequency does not disperse as much. My subs are designed to rest on a floor with th...

Re: Do not use US 395---Dangerous!

From Socal, Highways 5 and 99 really ARE safer to travel. They are straighter, wider, flatter, have consistant speed limits, offramps and onramps, and are mostly free of bicyclists, pedestrians and stopped cars on the side of the road. Whizzing by a small town is not an option on 395. You don't have...

Re: Do not use US 395---Dangerous!

CHP ran the stop. The local communities have no influence over the CHP, wheras and an elected sherrif may be more responsive to local business that count on Burners spending money.

Unless it's a different person running the district CHP, why would things be any different than last year?

I traveled to Reno from Socal via US 395 in 2013. There was HEAVY law enforcement presence all along the route. An actual traffic stop in Bridgeport I went through included canine units.

I say NO to the lottery concept. First of all I would rather slug out the wait on opening day and take my chances or just buy my ticket a little bit later after the big rush. The stress of that is momentary and temporary. The stress of not knowing whether I'm going to get a ticket at all, regardless...

Laser Light shows

I am interested in doing a laser light show at my camp for 2011. I plan to use commercially available lasers and follow the recomended safety procedures for same.

Are there any clearances I need from Burning Man to use these devices?
