Re: Start with what you have. It's easier and cheaper.

I still have a couple of "Ratty" original costume pieces in my collection.

I love your work! You are an inspiration...

Re: Placement 2019-2020

I was with a placed camp and had early entry work passes in '12 and '13. Even then there was plenty of open camping so I never gave it a second thought. This year, I was looking forward to camping solo. Now I'm wondering if I should rethink my plans and see about joining back up with my old camp or ...

Re: Re-introduction time!!!

Thank you everyone!

Going to the event is the big deal but I'd forgotten how much fun it is to dream/plan/execute a BM plan. It's really a ticket to 6 months of fun for me!

The Meet 'N Greet is on my to-do list this year...but you know how that goes. Hopefully we'll get to meet in person!

Re-introduction time!!!

Hey, I’m Jaybob. It’s been quite a while since I’ve been able to attend. I’ve been lurking over the years and have chimed in from time to time, but I have to keep BM at arm’s length when I’m not able to attend. It’s for my own sanity. After four years of being unsuccessful in the main sale I somehow...

I destroyed an trailer trying to do that once. It was a cheap, old trailer but after opening the roof it quickly bec...

If your camping by yourself...no prroblem. Set up where you find room, arrange your camp how you like, and then start meeting your neighbors.

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.

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!
