Re: Future Drone Policy BRC & USA

The drone art was a beautiful thing and glad they brought it in collaboration with the Artery. But drones near airports continue to be a problem, and Burning Man has an airport. June 25, 1918: "The B787 pilot reports on approach to Heathrow RW27L when a drone-like object was seen to pass just below ...

Re: 55 gallon drums and water storage

Maybe find a place or a test kit I can buy to make sure it is safe. It is very difficult to test water to see if it is safe. With water testing you need to know what you are looking for and test for that thing. Probably you have friends or friends of friends at your local municipal water testing de...

Re: 55 gallon drums and water storage

Slow down there... Freezing (and boiling) water are a base chemistry and physics phenomenon. There are dozens+ freezing point elevation compounds. A specific antifreeze may be toxic. Or it may not be toxic, like sodium chloride. But even if the specific antifreeze is non-toxic, the impurity levels m...

Re: 2018 BRC Census deadline extended and some preliminary results

I strongly support the original intent of this thread. Do the 2018 Census online! I read the detailed public census end to end every year. It is a critical gift. It informs my ideas and my comments on eplaya. The census has non-public detail, not because it's deliberately secret. Much of the cross-c...

Yes. The census is a public tool to understand big burning man. A lot of our discussion on improving the event would benefit from a close read! The BORG has a lot of proprietary ticket data. Presumably they are thinking about it. But the big news is the decline in percentage for 2 years of virgins. ...
