Re: HAIR concerns on the playa? ;)

Pedro, I've worn braid extensions for years. For itchy scalp relief: tee tree oil in a spritzer bottle is magical.

Re: PAGE TWO

Fuck.

I'm doing it wrong.

Twenty years, and *I don't even understand* these things SSE talks about (except personal showers, I do get those).

I promise, I'll try harder.

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.

Re: Tandem bike thoughts & experiences

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...

*gently takes the reins*

Destiny Lounge 3D will happily host this year.

Big Blue Doggy and I will welcome the eplaya masses on Wednesday at 6 (location TBA, of course; hoping for 3Keyhole Plaza).

We'll want a team to help organize, but we've got time!

YAY!!!

I also, as hard as it was, gave up glitter, feathers and sequins at BRC.

Re: 5 Colombians looking for a camp

Burning Man sells out every year; getting tickets is about perseverance and a bit of luck. Being connected with the community helps, too.

The ticket opportunities still to come are: STEP program, OMG sale, and Bus+ tickets.

I say we do away with big sound systems.

Re: 10 Yr Environmental Impact Statement (Includes Relating to Culture)

I've seen it posited elsewhere that the BLM is reacting to a novel, Use of Force, in which BRC is the target of a terrorist attack. I've scanned the first bit, and the author has clearly attended the event, he uses actual Theme Camp names and gets lots of 'old timer' info correct. I wonder if he was...
