always ALWAYS carry a snorkel with you.

I can't believe how many noobies I see each year without any sort of underwater breathing equipment.

Re: crypto camp anyone

I saw there was a bitcoin meetup last year. I tried to make it there but I was about 90 minutes too early and then I sort of just wandered off.

If you check the guide on arrival there might be something similar this year.

Re: 2011 MOOP Map Live

Someone could have dumped something after you left--like a bike, or a barrel of water, or a bag of trash unsecurely fastened by a passing vehicle. The wind could have blown something untoward onto your former property, or you may have pinpointed your exact spot on the map incorrectly or (more likel...

Re: 2011 MOOP Map Live

After a long wait, I see our camp was fully yellow much as I am embarrassed to admit it. I really just don't understand how and it bothers me a lot. It was a very small camp, less than 30 x 30 feet. We literally didn't cook outside the rv, dumped no grey water, burned nothing, grilled nothing, ate ...

Re: "Second Floor" Camp?

I just need to chime in and point out that this "Second Floor Camp", which I was sort of across the street from... Got a big fat RED mark on the moop map. I think it is worth mentioning because it means that they really didn't take care of their area and quite honestly it bothers me.

Re: 2011 deaths, injuries, arrests and tickets

My info comes from the ESD stats from the end of the event. Only think I can guess is that she was injured on the playa and evacuated to a hospital, but that news of the hemorrhage and her passing had not gotten back to ESD? The article you linked only mentions that she suffered a cerebral hemorrha...

I might see where i was confused. I think Trilobyte was referring to the JStep comment about someone getting run over and not referring to the article I thought it was. The only part that I am left wondering about is that Trilobyte knows of a death perhaps that occured on Tuesday and the women in th...

@Irreverent Moniker - I'm not sure about the pool of vomit part, but the only death this year was an older guy, on Tuesday, of natural causes. @JStep - that may have been an old article, that's exactly what happened with the person who died in 2003. The stats info I have for this year's event are 1...

Re: post what you didn't like about 2011 here

I have this sense that now that it became a sold out event, next year's ticket sales are going to be a fiasco. I realize I am a relative newbie, but I just feel like BM is now the "hot ticket" and it may change the makeup of the whole event. Remember, it took six months to sell out. Also,...

Re: 2011 Entrance - how can we reduce the wait to < 4 hrs???

We just need to all bust across the playa towards BRC at the exact same time from the line. They cant stop all the thousands of cars so a few dozen people will get arrested and everyone else will make it in. Booya! Where is my problem solvers badge?

Re: WTF, Gerlach!

Playa dust on the truck is like a badge of honor for many of us. This part of your post resonates with me. It's fun seeing the other dusty cars on the road. Yeah, that is fun, but it also makes you a cop-magnet. That is just paranoid and silly. Having a dusty car isnt illegal anywhere I have ever d...

Re: Comedy on the playa

Thanks for the suggestion.

I am more interested however in finding if there is a place that is going to be doing a lot of comedy or something liek that.

A place that we could just go and sit down for a few laughs perhaps?

Heyo! Of course I enjoy joking and having fun with my friends, new and old, in the desert... But i was wondering.... Has anyone ever seen a BRC stand up comic out there that they really liked?
