Re: New Blog - Ticket Update: Rebuilding Black Rock City 201

Clearly this band-aid was the best policy decision that the LLC could have made given its craptacular implementation of a lottery. It prevents every bunch of leeches on the block from claiming theme camp status in a bid for more tickets. In many ways, it was what had to be done. But if fucks me. If...

If you make it a scooter that you stand to ride, then you can use that. It really help to mutate the crap out of it as well, but a standing scooter is allowed. I'll try to find where that is written. That would be incorrect. We do allow small stand up go-ped type scooters to operate without a licen...

Before you go investing time, resources and money into it I'd verify with the Black Rock DMV that scooters are even a category to be issued permits at the event. Scooters are allowed, most certainly. However the same rules apply to them as to other mutant vehicles, which is that they have to suffic...

We only care about sound because vehicles with large sound systems are reminded of the Burning Man rules concerning sounds during licensing. I would also po...

Re: After market mods

Do not allow your MV to be used in the fashion that Duff is promising. You will run the risk of impoundment. If DuffDog actually carried through with some of the stuff he's threatened too, impoundment would be the least of their worries, unless you're referring to the type of anal impoundment that ...
