Re: Gifting at Burning man Favorites?

The feral sandwich girl is sitting right next to me, and she wants you to know that this made her day! We were both virgins this year, and the sandwiches may have to happen every year.


Welcome to ePlaya. Great first post and first year gifting.

Re: any undercover run-ins?

If they were "painfully obvious", they were not undercover cops. Off playa, years ago, I saw a homeless guy sitting in a doorway on discarded cardboard across the street from Civic Center Plaza in SF. He was filthy, had an unkempt beard and hair, rotting clothing... the works. He went to ...

Re: Will Call sucked real bad

Volunteers driven by incentives tend to be flaky, when the going gets tough they bail when they realize the work isn't worth whatever it was they thought they were getting. Perfect response. I think the key to getting folks to return year after year to the volunteer positions is that the work is mo...

Re: Will Call sucked real bad

I had been thinking about volunteering but kept thinking it would clash too much with camp set up during early entry and at the start of the week... I used to think the same.

Well, I guess I'll give some of the line trolling ticket seekers the benefit of doubt that maybe they got scammed. THAT would be crushing!
