Re: Not Going to Burning Man at Burning Man

I guess when you come back year after year, things become routine. I may or may not stop at the Empire Store when passing by. The heart pounding excitement of entering Black Rock City is diminished a bit. The past few years, I found myself setting up our camp and never looked out to the street. All ...

I can take these cheesy diet supplement posts that are showing up, but several years back there was pure underage porn showing up. That was really worrisome.

Re: Fresh Spam Accounts

My guess is that these accounts are set up by individuals who make just pennies for each post. I wonder if there could be an email confirmation required before the first post is allowed. Spam posts have their email address banned as well, so it would require a new email account to be set up for each...

You can fly out of Logan and be in Reno by noon the same day. Pack what you can in two suit cases and you can ship things on the burner...

Re: Greetings Everyone

Welcome to eplaya. I moved your post to its own thread for clarity.
Tell us a bit about yourself and what type of camp you may be looking for.
After the first of the year, things start coming to life with camps.
Good luck.

Re: I'd like to put a team together for a project...

Take it a step further and replace all the lanterns with solar LEDs and watch the lamplighters revolt.

I’d pay to see that.
Damn, I saw solar lights on sale at Harbor Freight. They could put 4 of them on each pole and let the Lamp Lighters rest at sundown. 8)

Re: Greeter Bypass For Early Entry

Why not make EVERY line an express line? Skip the Greeters and the WWW guide and go screaming off at 10 mph to camp. My guess is everyone (including first timers) will head for an express line. For me, I'll stay in the regular line because no one else will be in it. :roll:

So many unexplainable things happen in BRC and it's called playa-dippity. A few years back, we picked up a random woman walking out in the deep playa and gave her a lift on our camp art car. She was trying desperately to find a friend of hers. Her friend was from Atlanta and she told me her name. By...
