Re: Securing your generator.

There are all kinds of security systems for Honda generators, and on the whole it might be an investment to consider - they're high value targets. If you plan on using it a fair bit at off-playa events you might still want to consider something fancy, but otherwise I'm with Token - I've only ever us...

Re: Making a class meet up on the playa

What gets into the printed guide is only a very limited number of items (only the first few hundred, or 1-2ish days worth of postings out of 2 months of people adding things to the playa events calendar). You can either wait until you nail down some camp specifics before considering adding it (it wi...

Actually, as per the posted guidelines in the fundraisers section (the second bullet point), it is appropriate to post a fundraiser event in Off-Playa Meetups.

Re: The Bar 2018 Edition

Wait, I don't think that pic you posted was of lake Lahontan... was it Elliot?

Typically the seasonal lake never really gets deeper than a few feet, and I don't think the water would ever get to be a nice and clear if people were mucking about in it.

Fewer people getting tickets?

It's probably worth pointing this out, since you may see random grumbles both here on the board and elsewhere on social media. Many (myself included) are noting that within their circles of friends, it seems like fewer people were able to get tickets in the main sale this year than in previous years...

If you'd attempted to get in before the system was allowing access to the waiting room you may need to clear your browser's cache.
