Re: Do I need a photo ID for BM

If you have a physical ticket in hand and arrive in a car (truck, RV, etc) you won't need any ID to enter Black Rock City.

As GW said though, the bars will check your ID before they give you a drink.

Re: BurnBots and the Junkyard of Rejected Robots

The more I think about your idea ShaneB, the more I like it! A kind of Salon des Refusés for burner robots, with a hint of Cargo Cult and cacophony thrown in for good measure.

Hi robin_goblin, you've been to the burn several times so I imagine you've thought this through, but I'm kind of wondering what your MOOP plan is.

Re: Transfer tickets after shipping

I assume by 'in person' you mean a paper ticket. The physical paper ticket in hand is all you need to pass through gate, other than a Vehicle Pass. It doesn't matter at that point who purchased it originally. Do you know the seller? Be aware that tickets can become voided by the BMorg and become no ...

I think that's a pretty solid rundown you have there already dj_shuze. I personally don't have the lower section kickplate below my door, and the 'seal' between the door and the floor tarp remains relatively tight all week, and structurally sound as well. However, mine is the smaller H5 which I main...

Have you been able to change your password yet? I haven't been able to log in to make a change; did you go the 'forgot my password' route instead? I did read one article which suggested that no credit card info was breached.

Re: Foam(?) for keeping dust out through large weird shaped gaps?

If by chance it turns out that you can't find appropriate foam that meets all your needs, then I'm inclined to think that you may want to consider not worrying about airflow in those spots, and use a more rigid foam. Then for airflow, cut some rectangular window outlets in your plywood, and build so...
