Re: I if you are bringing an RV...Please READ

Wanted to clarify my original post... I am not Larry... I am not proposing new rules... I enjoy EVERYONE at BRC regardless of transportation... Creativity among other things means being awake and conscious about choices. RVs are like building blocks from an architectural perspective... a prime princ...

I if you are bringing an RV...Please READ

Think about community when you park. Last year the entire length of the other side of the street was the backside of RVs... this creates isolation and the eliminates the chance to create a neighborhood. (which can be one of the best playa experiences) If you need to create a wall do it 30 feet from ...

Re: Jungo Rd 2014

No direct experience... but know of folks who have had multiple flats... don't know what they were driving.

Re: Need help with physics/art

Depending on conditions digging on the playa is like digging in concrete. I have used triangle braces with good results and saved days of installation time. If you keep the design check with artery... you might be able to schedule a post hole digger.

Re: EZ Up Canopies

I have lost 2 to the wind. If you are totally intent on using one I would suggest the following: inside the tent are 8 hinges (look like an "x' on its side)... get 12" spikes and duct tape them across the hinges (which are the weakest part of the structure. Put in re-bar parallel to each pole and us...

Re: How will the lottery affect our community contributions?

Large theme camps have there place but are a long way from an essential ingredient to BRC. I some time camp alone, have had art on the playa 12 of 14 years. So my ticket priority would be non-existent? I would like to think that creativity and art are worth more than a week of free booze. I don't be...

cushy

Kind of cushy for your first year, don't you know you're supposed get the shit beat out of you by dust storms for a couple of years before moving up to an RV? Beer and cows on the road may not be the best combination… a friend from Sacramento had his RV totaled by one a few years back… be safe. ...

My second year I went back up to the playa for a weekend to help moop, a necessary but not fun job...you form a s...

Mars on acid

This will be number 8 for me. I have described burning Man like Mars on acid except that you don't need the acid. I enjoy a little wine and a few margaritas but have found any more that that takes away from the experience... the more conscious of my unconsciousness I am the better it gets. Michael H...

the first timers from Japan

Turns out some of them were camped with us. Red Woman's account is accurate, however, the good news is that for whatever reasons they were let off with a warning.
