Re: I'd like to put a team together for a project...

As others have said Burning Man is a Do-ocracy. I think a realistic place to start is you doing or making provisions for 80% of the beginning phases of the project. Once you prove it can work then think about on boarding funding and build help. There are some great collective things at Burning Man b...

Re: Culture - Camps - Placement

The survey took me forever but as along term camp mayor I had much to say. It was nice to see some very well thought out questions. It will be interesting to see what the future holds and what kind of action is spurred from the information. On the surface it seems pretty ridiculous that somewhere no...

Re: Greeter Bypass For Early Entry

If I wanted a bypass lane I would just go to the far left and move a cone, go through and then put it ...

Re: North Pole 30 ft Shade Canopy - seek center pole

I think fence top rail comes in about 13' lengths and has a handy formed end that fits inside the main interior diameter. This means you can cut the piece in two and have 2 roughly 6' pieces to transport and then they fit back together for a full length piece. It's in the cyclone fencing area of you...

Re: What is best way to return to DGS after taking 2 yrs off?

Definitely email Placement telling them what your plans are and ask to be put back on the placement email list. It might be appropriate to tell them who the primary leader is and who the backup leader is if the primary is not available.

I know right where it is and want to visit it in the late spring to see how shot up it gets. It's going to be visible from a frequently used road. Hopefully Frog Pond and Trego have a cleaner bill of health when I make the trip.

Hey Ratty, There is an unspoken rule ( or up front that I'm not 100% aware of) about publishing aggregated camp real addresses prior to gate open.

Why get those specialized chunks of metal for more than the cost of the lag screws themselves?

That's $35 (maybe le...
