Re: How much do YOU spend on Burning Man?

I think the nice thing about repeat journeys to BRC is that after the first time (if you dive all the way in and build a shade structure, buy coolers and water jugs and camelbaks and all that shit, like I did) it costs significantly less. So now all I have to spend money on is ticket, travel and foo...

Re: Official "Awarded Tickets" Thread

I really like the idea of them pulling people at their top tier first. It is a really thoughtful way to do that. I hope its the case. Also, CONGRATS TO EVERYONE who has gotten tickets so far and will get tickets! So exciting! :D Hope to see you on the playa!

I find this hilarious. I'm quicker to tell people I'm going to Burning Man than I am to tell them I'm going to my larp one weekend each month. I typically go with "camping" instead of explaining a larp to someone.

Today I realized that due to financial cut backs from my father passing soon (2-3 weeks) I have to go with the bare minimum to BM. It's my first year, and I think I really need something to look forward to right now, so I kinda stubbornly refuse to give up Burning Man. I've dealt with way too much i...

Thank you Token. That is some wonderfully sound advice. Especially the liquor and duct tape. If all else fails, one of my campmates is a goblinoid tinkerer/mcgyver/mad scientist. We should be okay.

It just seems like a lot of pvc to strap to the top of a celica coming from GA.

Also, I had a feeling cutting might ruin it. We are looking into renting a pickup or explorer size thing with a flat bed, but finding a flat bed in the preferred price range may be hard.

Monkey Love Hut PVC...to cut or not to cut?

The shade we bought supplies for is the Monkey Love Hut. If you cut the PVC, does it compromise the structure? Any ideas how to haul them out in one piece?
