Great posting, bradtem. It is possible. .

Re: Not enough space on the playa.... really?!

The existing infrastructure is what it is and I don't forsee anything changing on that front ever. We're kind of a big deal, but not THAT big of a deal. Every year I see the signs that are everywhere: "Welcome Burners"..... maybe we are THAT big of a deal. Let's ask the businesses of Reno if they w...

Re: Not enough space on the playa.... really?!

Sure, just build a multimillion dollar stadium, as bunch of hotels (and casinos, it is Nevada not Michigan) and throw in a multilane freeway like they have in Ann Arbor. Then, of course, it won't be Burning Man. Oh Ugly, you disappoint me. Ok, might have been a bad analogy to begin with, but the po...

Re: Not enough space on the playa.... really?!

Calm down.

Here's another idea: for those with just a backpack and a tent - big buses from Reno (for free!!) One big bus can replace 20 or 30 cars.

What happened in the past if you arrived before the gates opened? Tickets could be issued with a strong warning NOT to arrive at the wrong time.... kinda like it's always been done.

No, no.... it's not discouragement - it's true, gotta do all that it takes to get there this year. That's what it's about.
Last couple of years the wife and I had an rv out of Vegas for $1,500, but we booked 8 months in advance! This year she's not coming.

So... the RV rental is $1,416... and then with gas, water, extras like overnight at an RV park a couple of days before and a couple of days after, the grand total would be something like $2,100. Split 3 ways that would be $700 each. I'm trying to set this up now because I can get a good deal on the ...

Actually, 20's isn't quite right..... more like a 12 year old.
(Some people lose their sense of wonder and excitement after the age of 12. And like Peter Pan says "I won't grow up".)

I figure if Hazel can sign up to be mayor for another 4 years at the age of 89, then I might be able to keep going to BM till I'm 90.

If you know you're gonna go, then be online to buy tickets about 3 seconds after they go on sale Jan. 19 - best price and best way to lock in your commitment.
