Re: PAGE TWO

I think the jaded burner in me is sneaking out: No one deserves to attend Burning Man. There is no reason why your life would be changed if you attend. Spending a week or two away from your partner is not exactly a reason to deserve anything. Not everything is about you, and posting a bunch trying t...

Re: Out of control scams.

I haven't seen that many people who were scammed. Certainly less than 100 people. So, with 70,000 tickets that's less than 0.14% of all possible tickets that were scams. Not exactly out of control.

Re: Do I need a photo ID for BM

Looks like you will need photo ID in order to ride on the Burner Express bus. Best to contact Burner Express Bus directly for confirmation... Passengers will be required to show ID at the point of embarkation. We verify that passengers have Burning Man event tickets so we cannot allow transfers of b...

Re: Flights in and out of Reno

That will give you a chance to get a decent sleep, then go pick up the supplies/stuff you need for your burn. I haven't tried to go into BR...

Re: Don't stress about getting a ticket!

There is NO guarantee that you will get a ticket. Once the demand for tickets was greater than the number of tickets available - the game changed. Don't show up at the gate, expecting that "The Playa will Provide" - occasionally, that is true -but mostly, you end up pissing off the gate staff and e...
