Re: Fuck!

I've avoided the boards for the last few months. I'm so fucking bummed that I won't be going to Burning Man this year. I've wanted to go for so fucking long. In previous years, going to the burn wasn't an option due to health issues, work and finances. I finally had all my ducks in a row this year ....

Re: Best month to buy the flight?

I'm not sure if it's true, but a co-worker told me that if you go on a site like Travelocity late at night... like 2 am, the prices are cheaper than they are during the day. He claims to have saved $ that way. Also, mid week flights are cheaper than weekend flights. Try s couple of dated, then compa...

Re: First Year! Feeling Overwhelmed

You've got 180 days until you need to leave (assuming you're spending the night in Reno on Saturday and driving in Sunday, though this isn't mandatory, just "nice") which gives you 25 project weekends left to figure out your tents, shade, food, water, transportation, wardrobe (including g...

I called back again this morning. I spoke with a very nice woman named Ellen. She said the rate was still coming up as $80 with the Burning14 code. I told her the rates the BDV had listed, and she conferred with her manager. Turns out there was an error with the system. They corrected it, and my roo...

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

I picked up a big floppy sun hat, like the one in the picture. I plan to decorate it, and add some sort of chin strap so it doesn't blow away.

... now to figure out how to take it on the plane without it being crushed. I may just have to wear it :lol:

I took "Family related" leave for Wednesday.
12:00 there is 3:00 here, so I could have just taken a couple of hours, but I'm taking the whole day. Might do a value village run after work the day before, and spend the day working on costumes.

How to put up pictures, etc. in the temple

I know that people will often put pictures and messages in the temple before the burn. Both my parents have passed, and I would like to place a picture of them. I was wondering how people attach them... Pins and staples seem wrong, because they will be left in the ashes but I doubt tape would stick ...

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

I've used the vacuum seal bags for trips in the past ... basically, you use a vacuum to suck the air out at home, and you either roll them, or sit on them to get the air out when packing to go home. They still compact things, but not as good without the vacuum.
