Re: What makes BM better than a Regional?

I'll have to answer that question with a question. Do you know of a regional(or any place other than the playa) where you can construct a 20 foot tall fire breathing duck that can be admired by people in unusual costumes(or none at all) and then go to a bar someone else made and have a shot of jack...

Re: New Blog - Ticket Update: Rebuilding Black Rock City 201

One of my camp-mates witnessed this at Alchemy in Georgia... a commercial event where it grew from 900 to 2700 in one year... as he relates it, it was a rave, not a burn, and no one had ever heard of Leave No Trace... the median age was about 20 and everyone was trying to steal his stuff. Just an F...

Re: Master List for Theme Camp Placement?

I haven't yet heard of any other camps being at 4:30 and C besides ours (Chakralicious Camp). Knowing who your neighbors are if you're a theme camp is a good thing, in terms of sound, power, generator usage, and the like. How do you share resources if you don't know who your neighbors are? That's w...

Re: What drink is your camp serving?

SchizoFrenzy (4:30 & Coming Out) will be serving different drink every night, depending on who's bartending. But I can tell you for my shifts my pre-mixed drinks will be Fizzbitch and Gun.

Hi, Age! We have two trucks/trailers heading west, one from Atlanta & one from Greenville, SC, so I think we should be covered. If anything changes, though, I will surely let you know. Thank you! CORE effigy-- is that another name for Charlie Smith's Firebirds? Nope, the Atlanta/Georgia regional su...

Do you guys know how you're transporting your rigs to the Playa? The Georgia crew that's doing the CORE effigy for our region is likely leasing a shipping container that will be transported by commercial carrier for the effigy pieces, and they're going to have a lot of extra space that they're renti...

If someone starts reading shitty poetry I will be firing Atari Teenage Riot at them with a megaphone. There's a local regional camp that has a "soapbox."

I like the wristband idea. If it works for other festivals, why not BMan? Also, many states will be more than happy to issue you a duplicate ID for a small fee. I plan on having one to show to bars\LEO if it comes up and one to make sure I can get on the plane come time to leave. The answer to that...

Anybody have a good on-line source for evaporative cooler pads that hold up well to the dust? Over here in GA our local hardware stores don't carry them, and I'd rather not wait till getting to the playa, so I'd like to order some online preferably from a source that someone's had good experience wi...

I might be reading that FAQ differently, but I saw at least one theme camp kickstarter recently that's definitely not following. Think it was the Bureau of Unclaimed Secrets or something similar. The bulk of the money they were trying to raise were for general camp expenses like shade structure, gro...

Sadly, in what was my first Playa trip last year I had a lot more "wish I had done it" moments than "glad I did it" moments. Part of it was being there for only half the week, part was shyness, part was me not asserting more independence more frequently. Things I hesitated but was glad I did: 1) Dan...

At most regionals I'm usually one of the first to set up, so I tend to gift a lot of manual labor by running around and helping others set up their camps, art projects, or the burn infrastructure. I'm not overly talented in terms of artistic creation, so it's harder for me to come up with more cleve...

New Regional Burn: Euphoria - June 17 - 19, 2011 NW Georgia

Hi all, just wanted to pop in and make sure everyone knows about a new regional burn taking place in Georgia in June. It's called Euphoria, and is being put together by most of the same people that run Alchemy (largest burn in the southeast).

Cardinal Directions on the Playa

Does anyone happen to know how the city will orient to cardinal directions this year? I'm trying to do some pre-planning for our camp and some solar panels and whatnot since we'll be arriving and setting up in the middle of the night. I can of course take a reading on site to find north, but would l...
