You'll get a good laugh at the thought of bringing your small-wheeled scooter once you get out there and get a sense of what the surface is actually like. It is sort of hard to imagine until you experience it firsthand. Definitely bring the bike though. Have fun InGearX!

Re: Desperately need one $425 pre-sale entry pass

For what it's worth, what I think you are looking for is a 'Main Sale' ticket, which costs $425. The Presale tickets are the $990 and $1200 versions. Just mentioning it so you don't inadvertently confuse someone right when you're in the middle of trying to make a deal.

This is the impression I have as well, though I am merely basing that on various unofficial posts I've read the last few months. I haven't had the need to try it myself, fortunately. I suggest keeping an active eye on it BBD. Good luck sir!

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: 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 ...

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.

Nice story there kremlin-pancake.

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...
