You could have done "Thats Nice". It would have been just fine.

Tommy Cosman of Gerlach. He was a very sweet guy who looked much younger than the mid 60's that he was. He had life long mental health issues and was very slow learning.

Re: Asphalt imitation on Playa

Without having official knowledge of this, my guess is that you can't cover over a street used by the public. All the other ideas sound awesome. If this covering is done within the borders of your camp, it would be much more acceptable as an art project. As a thought, you could make a working bike p...

Welcome elizrawr. You're almost there.
I always like to tell people to dress like themselves. Wear what you feel comfortable with. If you feel like going a bit wild, you can always step out and go outlandish, but it's all up to you.

Re: Anyone have experience with motorized trenching on the playa?

I'm not sure what kind of wires you're intending to put in a trench if this is your first year attending Burning Man. There are no trenches and no deep holes allowed to dig into the playa. With that said, I removed your link to a commercial site. I hope this information helps.

Re: Why is the ticketing system so awful for burning man?

Large portions of the community oppose the idea of putting names on tickets, for various reasons. Very true. The logistical nightmare of changing names on every ticket would be astronomical. It would require 10 people in-house just to process this. A week before the burn, it's hard to find anyone w...

Re: Fuel Supply when coming from afar.

You need to preregister to get fuel at Hell Station. It's meant to supply larger mutant vehicles. My modest size art car (with a 6 gallon tank) is not something that could use them for fueling up. Certainly gas cans for generators are a definite NO! As far as what to do with empty gas cans, offer th...
