so, yer page says $250 to register pre-playa (understandable i guess), or $300 to register ON-PLAYA. i thought there was some thing about taking money on playa for anything. i just don't understand how someone who hasn't registered before they get on playa could be ok to camp with you for $300. one ...

i guess this counts as worst, but since it pissed me off it did exactly what it was supposed to do. "welcome to the rainbow gathering."

if you can swing it, wait until tuesday to leave. taking off sunday you miss seeing the temple and other art burn, leaving monday is dangerous (the last couple years we've had more deaths on the roads home on monday than on the playa during the whole event). last year was my wife's first burn. she i...

in my experience, the unwashed dready-headed bare footed hippies who show up with no food and two gallons of water for the week have lot in common energetically with the shirt cocking beer swilling "i'm here because breasts" crowd: they both want a good time supplied by those who pour effort and res...

critical mass always bugged me: flooding the major roads with bikes so no one can get to work on time and occupying the police with a bunch of bike ninnies who aren't exactly breaking any laws, just clogging up the roads. but doing it, TO MAKE A POINT ABOUT MOBILITY AND SAY YOU SHOULD RIDE A BIKE NO...

yeah, but that was parody. the difference being: doing something because you're taking a jab at people who take themselves too seriously, and getting everyone a laugh at the same time; versus being paid to drag an ad around the sky by a private company. hell, gigsville had a PBR billboard, but that ...

the hot topic thing was a prank pulled over on the deth guild kids (i'm to understand one of them is a manager at a hot topic, and yes they all hate the chain of stores). early one morning, i encountered some folks looking for a climber who was confident in doing rigging while over forty feet up. by...

you camp where ever you park. the outer rings of town are quieter, except in certain neighborhoods. by the time gate opens for everyone, you are allowed to camp anywhere (not in the roads, but in any vacant space in the city). will call is a different line than box office, both of which are differen...

ONE "EXTRA" EARLY ARRIVAL PASS

having undergone over 50% of my core group realizing they can't make it this year (from two months ago to just last night i lost another camp mate due to economy and vehicle crisis), something extra fucked happened: i ended up with an extra early arrival pass. so let me know if you have a legit reas...

i think a part of it has to do with how many folks are in a camp versus how much interactivity there is, what the ratio of land occupancy for personal use versus communal/social use. the tower and light jungle sound really neat, but if there's four times the amount of space for the camp bedding and ...

that's exactly right: because deep end won't be there its now a complete creative wasteland. unlike when deep end WAS there, and the playa was still a complete literal wasteland. i thought it was the barren wasteland that we all went out there for, and that party's cropped up on their own. things ch...
