Re: Vet burner having trouble getting into the spirit

Maybe take a year off? I've done it twice when I was feeling burned out and my enthusiasm was reborn when I returned the following year.

Re: Bartenders...Best Cocktails for Playa?

There's nothing better than a Moscow Mule on the Playa. In the past we used to bring fresh limes which were a hassle to juice. We also had to buy sugar syrup. Last time we brought Roses sweetened lime juice which covered us for the fresh squeezed limes and the sugar syrup. It saved us a huge amount ...

Re: Snark, is that really something burners take pride in?

More often than not people who snark online will be nice as pie when you meet them on the Playa. In a post burn wrap up a few years back I posted that I thought while the Temple was beautiful, I felt having the staircase in the centre detracted a little from the stillness (can't remember which year ...

Re: Food/Drink: What worked - what didnt

What never worked for us was anything that required actual cooking - rice, vegetables, pasta dishes, stir fries etc. Basically anything which required us to do any prep work or turn on the stove or oven. In the early years, we'd bring all kinds of ingredients to cook big meals and they would go unus...

Just went thru the ticket process with Comic-Con and think BM could learn a lot from them. Here's a quick summary. 1. You register a member profile prior to sale day and are emailed a URL and code the day before sale. It can only be used in one browser window. 2. You enter the waiting room during a ...

Thinking back to the ticket drama, there were concerns the larger than usual newbie population would result in more spectators, less participation this year. I recall BMO encouraging newcomers to participate more. Wondering what everyones thoughts are now the event has passed?

Re: Keen Newport Open Shoes okay for Playa?!?

I'd agree on covering up your feet. I wouldn't wear sandals, they'll get filled with dust. Don't buy expensive new shoes because they will get trashed. I wear an old pair of sneakers around camp, and boots outside camp. The boots are kick ass but my feet sweat like a hooker in church when it gets su...

Re: Seeking tips for taming long hair on the playa

I have thick wavy hair thats sits just above my shoulders. I blow dry it and flat iron it before I get to the Playa and it usually looks okay throughout the week. Humidity is terrible for my hair, but the dry conditions of the Playa seem to help keep it straight.

Single most important thing I have, other than goggles and dust mask. You don't need it crazy big. I think I got the Mule or the Luxe - it was perfect. They have good prices on ebags.com and you can usually find a coupon at retailmenot.com or some other coupon website to further reduce the price.
