she knows what burning man is, which makes even more tricky, if she goes like "why are you getting away now of all times"
I think I speak for everyone who ever attended Burning Man, no, she doesn't know what Burning Man is. 8)

Re: Friends on the playa?

Hi Rorc, First, welcome to eplaya and the dusty world of Burning Man. You will meet people! One of my favorite things to do at BM is to get up early in the morning and head out on my bike by myself. There! I'm 100% alone. I have met some of the most amazing people along the way. I've made lifelong f...

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...

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...

Burning Man has been known to be the perfect canvass for experimenting and stepping out of your comfort zone. With no judgement, it's your time to try things you wouldn't/couldn't try in the default world.

You may find that your 2018 trip to BRC is life altering for you.

I'm not sure you realize that domesticated farm animals (or any animal) is not allowed on the playa during Burning Man.
A good thought might be to start your own little Kink Kamp. (feel free to use the name, but give me credit)
