Re: The Individual Sale has started!

Re: Who plans on submitting tickets into STEP program?

People do not have due consideration to donate early, and I fear that even if the STEP program goes live and works as intended on February 22, people won't know if they need the extra tickets until much much later. Currently I know of at least 6 in my camp, myself included, who does not have a ticket.

Burners pay a heavy price of BRC ignoring Lottery Concerns

In any other year, Burners have tickets in hand, bought mid-January and be deep in art projects and camp preparation. Instead, many sit without tickets. Even if I had tickets, I would be writing you on behalf of those who now sit without them, some who helped make you who you are today. Below are my...

Lottery System Feedback

On principle, I have to object to this system. For me this isn't about price, I just want to know I have my ticket and get excited. After all, one of Burning Man's ten rules is "Decommodification" and a lottery system is a bit hypocritical, since it forces us to think about BOTH money and gambling. ...

I have now finalized my arrival with a friend who is an eight year veteran (it will be nice to have a guide). You guys are right, the closer it gets the more I just think abo...

Virgin feeling like there is no such thing as fully prepared

So I have a multi-tab spreadsheet full of formulas summarizing my budget, supplies etc, great burner friends and the survival guide for advice, and acquiring a growing stack of Playa Supplies in my bedroom. I've been dying to go for years since I heard of this event and it's finally going to happen....
