Re: eBikes and Burners who Ride them

Great Topic! My wife has a disabled placard in the default world, but she's proud, finds it annoying, and rarely uses it even when she probably should. There's no way she'd want to ride on a decorated golf cart at the event (not that I'd bring one for her...lol). I've been toying with this idea so s...

Re: DPW looking for people to come get some bikes.

Seems to be a direct correlation to how much easier the BMORG is making it to get to the festival. With busses and airports ferrying in thousands, Token is right, a totally predictable clusterfuck. The entitled masses are taking over the playa and don't give a shit about your 10 principles, at least...

Admiral Fukkit is right on the money! Shit always goes a little sideways...If you have the option to fly in the night before, DO IT!

By the way, since you're an Admiral now do you command a fuckin' fleet? Is there a newly commissioned Captain? :D

Re: Burning Man 2017 Ticket Information

If it's the same or similar to last year...your assumption is correct. Once your burner profile is set up correctly all you need to do is logon during the registration window and follow the link that appears. After that...the free for all begins. Good luck!

Good job getting your ducks in a row!

Hi Leenyjay, I've done it both ways, covered and uncovered. My travel trailer doesn't have a standard AC so I've rigged a window AC to work while I'm there. It is small and won't cool the entire trailer, but works well enough to have a place to hide during the hottest parts of the day. Yes, you will...
