Re: Volunteering for Burning Man Departments in 2018

Volunteering is fun and rewarding.

I'd love a year of NO stadium level sound camps/cars, which I believe would dramatically reduce the one-time bucket list tourists' interest.

Never happen, though.

Volunteering is fun and rewarding; get down in the dust with the people who DO.

Re: Need Help With Interactive Performances

Hi, rongo.

I'm a theatre/music/improv person.

I have many playa commitments and a camp already, but I'm curious about your project.

Mostly, I'm confused about the 'script', since improv uses only prompts.

Can you tell us a bit more about your idea?

Your mistake was going to Dancetronauts. They feed their DJs with the lost souls of trippers. Sorry, dude, it's all over for you.

Hello, and welcome. First: Seattle has a huge burner community; find them and get involved. Second: All of your questions have likely been answered right here on eplaya.

Re: Question for camps that serve food to the (playa) masses

I would suggest not going in the book. 'Advertising' in the local 'hood, letting your neighbors know the plan, maybe lit sandwich boards (get it?) at the nearby intersections/portos, and naming your camp MIDNIGHT QUESADILLA (or whatever) should bring in the desired crowds. Midnight/late night food i...

Re: 2018 One item a day for BM list

Look for Cocoons; huge selection of high-quality fitovers. They're pricey, so I waited for a sale!
I get the 'old lady' type with a 'roof' and wraparound earpieces; I find they do a lovely job keeping out the dust.

Re: Final step in letting my ego go!

Yeah, burning man is not the Utopia you long for.

It will be challenging, enlightening, opening, dusty, HARD (not in the good way), and wonderful.

Or not.

Expectations can be difficult, newbie.

Open to THAT WHICH IS, that *which is not* can also be valuable.

Re: 2018 drone policy

They don't BAN drones, they restrict use and register a limited number of (responsible/educated/compliant?) machine users. Pre-playa-control, a drone entered our personal camp livingroom and flew about, presumably taking video footage; had someone decided to disable that drone, would they have been ...

When it rains, barefoot is the way to go (squish!).

I think that rubber boots would be sweaty to wear and then would disintegrate from the alkali.
