@Sail Man,
What? No dubstep version? What kind of burner are you? Wow, dude.

Re: Lakes of Fire 2012 - IT WAS ON FIRE WHEN WE GOT HERE!

Flying Monkey,
Check out the Lakes of Fire group on facebook. Lots of traffic there too.

Yes, it's an awesome event. Every year gets larger and better. Voted most like BM by 52 Week Burn (at least that's what they told me!).

@Canoe, Do you have a ticket? Have your written Placement to inquire how they may assist you in the matter? Have your written DMV to ask them how they may assist you? I don't see anywhere where it says one can't bring their car to camp to load up before Exodus. Could you please provide a link to whe...

Re: Lakes of Fire 2012 - IT WAS ON FIRE WHEN WE GOT HERE!

As for electric bikes, BM doesn't allow them. Neither does LoF. If it has a motor, it needs to be art. And all mobile art needs to be registered/licensed. Yet, for our disabled participants, there is a method of licensing their mobility devices. Whether that be a wheel chair, golf cart or their car....

Re: sell licenses instead of tickets

I really like this. Similar to hunting licenses or gun, drivers or whatever. BRC Passport sounds awesome. I proposed a similar thought in the tickets complaint/solutions thread. Limit lower tiers to only those who registered before BM2011. Noobs pay full price. Scalpers really aren't the issue. BM's...

Re: What percentage of burners read JRS? Lottery could be g

I'd say the percentage of people who don't read JRS or are not subscribed is directly related to the slackers who didn't know tickets were announced to be close to selling out. I think that announcement went out three times. Around the same time JRS had a little article talking about "Not every...

Ticket Lottery Complaints/Solutions

I am not one to outright complain about something without offering a solution. In the case of this lottery idea (since when are burners gamblers?) I don't think the system was broken in the first place. However, I'm sure the computers that it runs on are far from sufficient as they have been over lo...
