Vehicle Pass needed (Found)

A friend was going to pick up his parking pass today and was then told she wanted much more money than face value for it, figuring he had no choice at this point. He told her to get lost, but is now in need of a parking pass. He's in Orange County, California.

Re: Do i need an id to get in?

I've been going since 2006 (I was 27) and I went to many bars and camps and was not once carded. Not a single time. Not even a hint asking for an ID... until last year. Last year every single bar and adult camp carded me. Every one! Maybe I looked like a cop. Maybe BMORG or JRS did a good job educat...

Re: Minimalist Shower structure & evap?

For evap I use a 4'x6' black tub and it gets rid of just between 1 and 2 gallons of water a day when in the sun. I don't do anything other than put water in and set in the sun.

Re: Plunderground is Looking for Rock Themed DJ Mixes/Mashup

This guy has all sorts of mashups. Burner material all the way. He goes by "RIAA" and all of his music is available as free downloads. That should be enough to support him! You can find links to his music torrents and file downloads on his page. I haven't listened to his newer stuff but th...

Re: The Unspoken Eleventh Principle

There are plenty of regional burns where the "burner culture" appears to be alive and well. I've been to plenty of (completely non affiliated campouts) where the principles hold true. And as it turns out there are plenty of "strangers" (40% new "participants" in 2013) ...

Re: The Unspoken Eleventh Principle

As is from what I can tell you are trying to form the opinion that because there is a ticketing process involved.

Re: The Unspoken Eleventh Principle

Such flimsy, arbitrary metrics have nothing to do with "radically inclusiveness." Rather it's the concept any person can potentially attend, and aren't going to barred, if the person has a ticket. So then you disagree that in my extreme example above where only 1000 tickets are offered to...

Burning Man IS about radical inclusion. The BLM isn't! True that the BLM is the limiting factor, but I think they are just trying to be responsible and attempting to keep the event safe and allow people to have some ability to arrive and leave in a timely manner. I love ridiculous inclusion! Thank ...

Honestly, I think you're just being obtuse. Nobody qualifies the ability of customers to purchase goods in a store with "oh, but employees get a discount" either -- because it doesn't apply nor affect your ability to buy the goods. Let's try this thought experiment. Let's say that of 68,0...

If, after all of this, you still want to argue semantics and philosophy, we can talk. :mrgreen:


Not only am I willing to argue semantics after the burns I'll even do it during. I like to play devils advocate, but I do really think they need to change the text. I no longer think it's fitting.

Re: The Unspoken Eleventh Principle

Radical inclusion didn't die at all. 1) These principles are only really applicable once you are at the event, not leading up to it. Sure, people try and practice the principles outside the event, but following through strictly with that would be impossible. For one, decommodification is impossible...

After how many burns do the memories blend together?

So if I have tickets and show up to the event, can I leave extra tickets for others to come pick up later? I ask this because I may be able to get 4 willcall tickets (order cannot be split) but I will only be using two. I would like to know if I can leave the other two there or if I have to somehow ...
