Re: West Nile... Fake or Real

So they found a few mosquitos in Gerlach...that's scary, right? Unless you put it in context: this week alone, they found 181 mosquitos carrying it in California. Odds are, that that week at Burning Man, you were safer from West Nile than the rest of your year.

I wish someone from Gate would ask to see me naked. There's just something about a man in dusty-ass boots and all black...meow.

Since it's more than 11 more months until we can do that, I hereby ask you to post pictures instead.

You are right - there's nothing that you can do on the GPE end when the highway is the limit. If you want to fix it with unlimited money, turn 447 into a six lane highway.

Re: law enforcement 2013

And it's the first year that I saw everybody go 5mph on the gate road. Which was absolutely wonderful! Not only did it make my job at gate much safer, it also left the roads intact for exodus. I remember years where exodus was a horribly bumpy ride because all the cars speeding had turned gate road...

Re: Find ticket on playa?

Whatever you do, don't bet on a free ticket in gate line. If you show up at gate one ticket short, you will be sent back to Reno. There is no waiting room for people waiting for miracle tickets.

We are 3 virginburners who is coming by Rv from Las Vegas. We have decided not to join a theme camp our first burn. But when scrolling to all the pages it seems like 99% are in a camp.
