Re: BM 2014 TICKET SOLUTION

I'd propose adding another similar hurdle to weed out the dedicated few from the wannabes - maybe another pre-register #1 in order to qualify for pre-register #2 in order to enter the ticketing round. The pre-reg part over 3 days was very easy to manage this year. So you make the whole process diff...

...The playa is very unforgiving on technology.

Re: Danderous Drivers on 447

The no passing zone sign idea...unenforceable for the most part, and there's no budget to pay for the signs or the manpower to install them. More aggressive enforcement? Possible, but where do you make a safe traffic stop? The areas that are safe are already scoped out and used. *******************...

Re: Danderous Drivers on 447

Thank you for everyone's input. It's nice to know I'm not the only one fed up with the dangerous driving on 447! I believe the solution is either temporarily decreasing the speed limit to 55 mph and/or banning passing between Wadsworth and Empire for the duration of the event. Increasing the LEO pre...

Good question. Friday 7AM PST is the "moment" moon will be the fullest. It's like saying the day the moon is full except is more accurate. For me, knowing the exact time helps with photography.

Danderous Drivers on 447

During my 12 years attending Burning Man, on several occasions burners traveling to or from Black Rock City along highway 447 between Wadsworth and Empire have been seriously injured and/or died in multiple-vehicle accidents and head-on collisions. Sadly, I have stood next a fellow burner’s body and...

This tied my 2006 count. Obviously maintenance and safe driving are not burner strongpoints :( Driving like an ahol...

Ashes from the 2009 Temple (aka Fire Of Fires)

Does anyone have some extra ashes from this years temple burn. I would like to give them to a friend whose dog recently passed away. We put a photograph up but failed to recover some ashes on Exodus. It would mean a lot to her.

Thanks!

We've never had a problem with LEOs on the playa. Reading the posts on here tells me that how we act at Burning Man has a lot to do with avoiding LEO problems. 1. We don't hang around the large art/party cars or the rave/dance tents. This seems to be where MOST of the LEO action happens... It funny...
