Re: Cost Preparation

My playa footwear consists of a good pair of leather boots (pull on Dingos), a pair of Ugg knockoffs for cool nights, and flip-flops for around camp. Booty shorts, thigh high socks, scarves/shemaghs (what *is* the plural of shemagh???), playa sweater, fun bathrobes, and playa coat complete the 'cost...

Re: eplaya Meet & Greet 2019!

First, thanks to those intrepid eplayans who came to the Meet n Greet; it was great to see you all! Several folks stopped by later in the week and said that they had heeded the dire storm warnings and huddled at home. (What storm? We were warned and battened down while prepping for the gathering, fo...

Re: eplaya Meet & Greet 2019!

Re: Advice for spotting scam camps?

Yep, May/June is a great time to be connecting with potentially dusty camps. Unless you've met the cool match camp in the dirt/swamp/desert/forest/tundra of regionals, or in the dust. 'Finding" a camp is not like shopping Victoria's Secret online, yo. Playa the long game. Make friends; charm neighbo...

Re: What kind of confirmation do we get?

No. If you bought through PayPal, you made a direct transaction with a ticket seller. The BMOrg has no skin in that game, unless the seller reports the tickets 'lost' or 'stolen', then the Org *may* cancel those tickets (especially if the buyer paid over face price). Do you have actual tickets in ha...

Re: Dumb Question: WHERE is the map of all the placed camps on this site?

The 'unofficial Burner Map' is the only source one can access prior to arriving at Greeters, where one is given the placement/Art map.

Not a dumb question, it just only 'sort of' exists as a burner voluntary addition map. (Thanks, burner who does this!)

Re: Want to send mail to the playa in 2017? Read This!

Each of the three POs on playa have their own unique services and are run independently. (I think) that this year 3&9 will receive incoming mail (no packages) and deliver; they also do internal city deliveries. If you're sending outgoing, off playa mail, it will need stamps of course. (I think) that...

Re: Current state of playa. Gum boots needed?

Honestly, I've found that barefoot is best in playa mud; plastic bags over shoes/boots are a distant (unattractive/awkward) second.

Gum boots would become platforms quickly.

Re: BRC on a motorcycle

GP&E has said repeatedly over the years that motorcycles can lane split on Gate Road (yes, they go to the front of the line), as they're not equipped to idle for hours in the sun.

Re: Old and Cynical

Being placed with a camp has no bearing on one's volunteering (other than with honoring camp responsibilities).

One's first year in BRC will lead to yummy, dusty revelations.

Some will be welcome; some will be novel.

Leave room for the unexpected.

Re: Placement 2019-2020

Yes, this happens.

I've seen it, four times, over the years.
Different camps, different reasons; all of them consent related, none of which should have required any 'extra rules' in the camp manifesto.

People can be really weird and entitled, out there.

Granted, it is unlikely that I would head off, deep playa, alone on a bike; as the likelihood of my returning with a functioning knee would be slim to none. It had been years since I had seen the trash fence, and that only through MV rides (and we all know how *that* ends! Clue, walking home from th...
