Re: Favorite "smell" experiences at BM?

The smell of fry bread at a roadside stand at midnight as I was driving home after the burn.
And of course playa dust, any where, any time.

Re: Burning Blog official ticket update

I won't refer to specific numbers. there are plenty of numbers floating around, some make sense and some were reinforced by Marion. Some are gibberish.

Re: Do the math: over 50% of tickets went to scalpers

I agree with kestralsf that there are enough reports regarding percentages for the large camps to see the trends of something like 30%. These are not just individuals reporting that they did/did not get tickets. These are eplayans reporting on larger samples that they have knowledge of(ie their own ...
