I always thought a game of 'Assassins' might be fun. You show up to a camp, sign up and write down your camp intersection plus two other hangouts and get a Polaroid taken of yourself. Then, you're given the notes about somebody else along with their picture, and it's on. When you find the other pers...

Also last page shows where BMORG has obtained a comprehensive insurance policy. Regardless of the affect of lessening risk at BM, it's a good thing the Org has insurance.

You can't do the latter. The LLC is actually lucky to have as much control as it does have now.

If it were possible to get straignt answers, I would want to explore the reasons for even allowing someone from a "couch potato" network to shoot such a documentary. It is either money, or diplomacy as far as I can tell. I say this because Discovery Times seems to be a producer of more informationa...

Re: Ain't what it used to be

In an environment with a defacto gift economy, it never dawned on me to hoard Burning Man itself. This is a good point for the burnier-than-thou types. The Org is trying a very fine balance between mitigating danger enough to keep having the Burn and Nerf Man. Look at it this way: if footage of Hel...

Theoretically, you could get everything you need for the 'camping' part into a 12x12x24 and take it with you as a checked bag, but that's a pretty minimalist trip. However, it's your first year, and that's probably a good thing. I've made your exact trip (except from PBI) and my costs were averaged ...
