Re: 6V Dome - LARGE Dome Covers (Patterns and Calculators)

Hi everyone. Greetings from Madrid. I found this post checking and looking for some information about other geodesic domes companies. Actually, I have an Event Geodesic Domes Rental Company in Spain, https://www.Geodomes.es and I know Burning Man but I never was there, and I really like it, maybe i...

Please don't hate on the Greeters.
There are only a few (Jaded old burner) that are anti- Greeter .. They will burn out on BM quick enough ..
I love the Greeters. Every one that I can find gets a nice gift from me. It's my official start for my week of mayhem. 8)

Re: Greeter Bypass For Early Entry

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:

I had a 3 hour wait at the gate on Friday. The fun and excitement started in the lines waiting to get into Black Rock City. If there were an "express lane", virtually everyone would be waiting in that line, and all the regular entry lanes would be hardly used. My solution was to leave my hotel 3 hou...

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

Now that the 747 is safely parked off playa for the winter, it may be a good time to look back on the whole plane art project. This was an incredibly ambitious project that involved a huge amount of people and money. The intent was to bring more and make it bigger and better each year. Like so many ...

Playa-dippity

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...

Did they pull it out yet? that's what she said

Looks like rain on the playa this Thursday, otherwise known as welding an aircraft to a desert.
I've seen one post of FB that the plane is on private property.
I wonder if anyone has a first or secondhand update on the 747 extraction status.

Re: Dealing with cops

Depending on what you were charged with, it's sometimes cheaper to pay the fine (stupid tax), than to hire a lawyer to fight it. In most cases, I think that's what law enforcement is counting on.

I’ll throw a piece of meat to the haters: the 747 did get one piece of special treatment. It was powered by a fully visible and non-mutated tug truck. You’re not supposed to be allowed to bring a non-self-powered MV and pull it around with a non-mutated truck. It didn't move around the playa once i...

Just by eye, that center pole appears to be about 8 to 9 feet tall. The first thing I would recommend is to set up the tent and figure out exactly how tall that pole needs to be. It will take two people to measure this. At a home improvement store such as Home Depot or Lowes, you need to get innovat...
