Re: Plug&Play Camp PlayaSkool - Camp Probably intentionally left Moop to keep deposit and legally steal money from peopl

I love to hear people's opinions. Once they start guessing, (at anything. Not just numbers.) I lose interest fast. It's like someone telling you about last nights dream. Hypotheticals lose me even quicker. Speculation based on hard facts is sometimes interesting. Just an observation I've made about...

Re: Which of the 10 principles needs tweeking?

The Immediacy Principle seems to be the one that most bugs me. Since most everyone feels the need to carry a call phone---even though they don't work 98% of the time during the week, but they can be used as a camera. This helps explain why there are thousands of them lost during the week and despera...

Re: The Burnings kept me away until now

Any extreme changes like that would require the name of the event to change to Statue Man.
Also, the weather and dust storms in the Black Rock Desert can almost always turn dusty, windy and aggressive. It's not for everyone.

Re: Ticket Sale Delay

The ticket sale announcements are done on playa time----which means they get to it when they get to it. This works to your advantage for a few reasons: A) You have a longer time to save up the money to buy your ticket. B) If you put it on a credit card, you don't get your bill until much later. C) N...

Re: Plug&Play Camp PlayaSkool - Camp Probably intentionally left Moop to keep deposit and legally steal money from peopl

On a personal note about PnP's in general. So much about Burning Man is missed in both the survival preparation and on playa experience and adventures when you feel the need to let a private group orchestrate and choreograph your entire visit. It's not ClubMed. The spontaneity and immediacy is just ...

I'm with Lucky on this one. That's eeeeasy money. No way they'll pass it up. I don't mind the presale... except for when it's used as a "just in case" cushion for people who just sell them back immediately after they get a main sale ticket. If you can afford a presale ticket, get a presale ticket &...

Thank you all for the insight and encouragement, I may just have to consider a camp and take Elliot up on the offer. It does sound like a greater opportunity to contribute to BRC!
Elliot is the BEST and an invite from him is a great honor.

A 15 passenger van starts to get full pretty quickly with tents, shade, kitchen/cooking gear, coolers, luggage, food, bikes etc. Hopefully there's a roof rack on the van to put at least the 5 bikes.

Re: Towing with a UHaul moving truck or van?

If your own vehicle is available to take, you would be much better off bringing that. You're going to have to clean a rental truck anyway, so you may as well prepare your family van with plastic on the rugs and seats. What you save in paying for a rental could even be used to detail your own car whe...
