Re: Donald Trump is my hero

But no one who voted for Trump worships him, they know who is his... The economy is booming and that's all they wanted. You obviously haven't watched any MAGA rallies; there's enough adulation there to make Kim green with envy. I think you're right, though; so long as the economy perks along there ...

Re: Burner Virgin

As a long time volunteer for TTITD I would recommend not trying to join any of the departments your first year there -- enjoy wandering around gobsmacked as you will be if you're paying the slightest bit of attention. Then you'll be better able to figure out if you want to drink the Kool-aide and wh...

Re: The basic problem with modern BRC

Yeah, and a permanent exodus of many people after those plagues. A few years ago when we had minor whiteouts on Monday morning, and Tuesday morning, and Wednesday morning, I had a conversation with a guy who'd arrived on Thursday. He commented there was a lot of dusty traffic southbound on 447 when...

Re: PSA: Murder on 447 - Kill The Rabbit!

It's funny, but for seven years, I'd leave the playa for home about 2am on Tuesday or later in the week and I never squashed one rabbit. Then the eighth year, south of Gerlach they showed up in droves. I got to about 25 before I lost count, well before Nixon.

Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

There was also a time when the rave was two miles out in open playa, far away from the effigy, but that was decades ago and the time machine is all broken. IIRC, the two injuries at the 1996 burn that helped prompt the BLM's stern gaze and the move off-playa in 1997 were caused by somebody speeding...

Good luck - don't let me discourage you. But for your own sake, spend your first year experiencing and surviving the playa without trying to do too much. You only get one first year, and if it is right for you, you can come back bigger and better the next year. Golden words of wisdom. Unless you pa...

That's what the BLM seems to figure the policing we need costs (for 2015). And that's without Choco Tacos.
