Re: There's nothing wrong with basing cleanup deposits on exodus cleanup results

If you don't show up for or are completely useless (sleeping) during your strike duty = forfeiture of deposit

Correct, they were basically bribing themselves to tank the game... AKA "moral hazard"

Re: There's nothing wrong with basing cleanup deposits on exodus cleanup results

What you are talking about is a strike fee, and many camps do it, which is understandable. It is meant to prevent your campers who are supposed to stay for clean up from disappearing to Reno or SF or their lover's playa home instead of picking up all of their shit like they agreed to at the start.

Because they don't want to be bothered and spend a small portion of their time on playa doing any work. Most of these people don't "work" in the real world, they sure as hell aren't going to lift a finger on their vacation... Especially after paying that kind of coin for all of their needs, wants an...

Also okay for them to take a policy line against the exclusivity and insular nature of some all of the turn-key PnP camps.

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 ...
