Re: Exodus 2013 - How was it?

About 12 hours from camp to Reno for us - about 7 hours in line then stopped for a 2.5 hour sleep near pyramid lake because we were both so tired. We left about 9:30pm yesterday having watched the temple burn from the RV roof at our camp site after breakdown.

Re: law enforcement 2013

I have nothing but positive feedback of the LEOs. They were super friendly, stopped for a chat with us, talked us through all the gadgets on their uniforms (we're from the UK), gave us Junior Ranger pin badges and BLM wrist bands and told us to flag them down if we needed anything because they were ...

Re: Open Camping Areas

What I remember reading is that a Registered Theme Camp must be set up and ready for "business" when the event opens. That's the reason for Early Arrival passes. Well only speaking from experience of my camp - we usually have 70-100 members but are only granted 5 EA passes. Those 5 guys do a lot of...

Re: How many people attended 2012 event?

I just think first come, first served was fine. And having had 10 years + of non transfrerrable ticketing system for Glastonbury there is virtually no secondary market for those tickets. This has been hashed out on the ticket threads for this year. Please read up before re-opening the can of worms....
