Re: Not seeing the DGS registration available -

Applying for placement now isn't going to get you any of those DGS tickets, nice try though. It doesn't work that way.

I'd like to, but I am not pretty enough for them to let me in to use their toilet facilities.
There won't be anything pretty about it, and I won't be asking...

It'll be more of a DIY type of project, renegade art.

That math would hold true if all of those categories had the same amount of tickets in each one... but they don't.

Re: Ticket Sale Delay

More DGS tickets is a bunch of crap, PnP camps are already masquerading as regular old theme camps and are in the system. Now they get more tickets and there will be less main sale tickets, how is that supposed to help?

Within all of that ticket talk, there was no mention of the main sale... at all

Re: Marion Goodell speaks.

Do not buy package deals to attend Burning Man. Period. You know it’s a “package deal” if it includes a ticket and accommodations. If it doesn’t feel right, it isn’t. Don’t do it. There are NO approved vendors for this type of offering.
Even without a ticket it's still a PnP, fuck them.

If you feel that you need to NDA all of your camp paying customers, doesn't that present the question that you know that what you are doing isn't right, shouldn't fly and would be frowned upon?

Yeah, the bigger issue at hand here is that plug n play camps are cashing in on and selling burning man, not that some campers are getting duped out of a moop deposit... That is so weak.

Talk about the elephant in the room.

The "donations" are even steeper than previously imagined.

All of these for profit shit-bags need to be wiped from the playa in one fell s...

I love how they really stick it to them with $150 to park their car, as if there's even a charge for that beyond your already over-priced vehicle pass. Those rates rival those of SF, simply fucking ridiculous.

They're gouging people, but one of the problems is that "the people" like it...

Re: Gasoline Engine Noise - Loud Quad vs. Quiet Golf Cart.....

Golf carts are usually two cylinder and smaller (250-350cc) so that makes it much smoother, thus quieter. Their engines are fully enclosed with purposefully quiet mufflers and intakes installed, and they don't idle. Don't forget that golf carts were engineered with a relaxing recreational outing in ...

Fuck man, these fires the last three years have been literally out of control! Not good.

A couple of years ago they got evacuated because of the damn dam at Oroville too.
