Re: Vehicle Pass Problem

I have 2 tickets and ***no vehicle pass.*** There are only 1250 left from the Org that I can try to buy. Otherwise, I can try my luck at buying one from another burner or scalper. ***If I don't get a vehicle pass, will I be turned away at the gate?*** Unless BM.ORG steps up and answers that question...

Re: Vehicle Pass Problem

Last year, I bought 2 Vehicle Passes, just in case my GF and I weren't together by the time we went to BM. I ended up gifting my 2nd one to a poor girl stuck in line at Will Call.

Re: Vehicle Pass Problem

Please find out *exactly* how many passes have been sold in each sale thus far, and how many passes are left and make that information available. If you're statements are just theorizing, please say so. If your statements are official BM.org information, also please say so.

Re: Vehicle Pass Problem

If your statement that there was a single pool of 27,000 and all 27,000 are gone is true... That means per the information on tickets.burningman.org that: 5,000 passes were sold during the Pre-Sale (not-allocated) 10,000 passes were sold during the Directed Sale (pre-allocated) 12,000 passes were so...

Re: Vehicle Pass Problem

"Where event tickets had a specific number allocated to each sale, vehicle passes was a single pool of 27K (as it was last year)."

Check your facts here: http://tickets.burningman.org/ Vehicle Passes *do* have a specific number allocated to each sale *and* have a single pool of 27K.

Re: Vehicle Pass Problem

You are right, it isn't a private conspiracy, it is a publicized goal of Burning Man to reduce the number of vehicle passes by 22% (from 35,000 to 27,000). By my count, there should have been 24,000 of 27,000 sold. 3,000 left to go. Only 1,250 available in the OMG sale. Is it safe to assume the othe...

Re: Vehicle Pass Problem

Let's do the math here: OMG Sale + Individual Sale + Distributed Sale + Pre-Sale = 27,000 Passes 1,250 + 12,000 + 10,000 + 2,000 (est) = 25,250 Passes 27,000 - 25,250 = 1,750 Passes Where did the other 1,750 Vehicle Passes go? The Pre-Sale only says 3 vehicle passes max and 6 tickets max. At 4,000 t...

Vehicle Pass Problem

I bought 2 tickets during the individual sale. Due to cashflow problems, I was unable to buy a vehicle pass with the card I had on hand in addition to the tickets. Is there any way to add a vehicle pass to my order?

Re: Let's make the MADPHUC in Seattle!

I hadn't thought of attaching a breaking assembly. That is a really good idea. I don't want to have to reach a hand into the works as the primary way to brake the rotation (as that will likely break a hand). Plus if someone starts to get sick or want off, it would be handy to stop it remotely and qu...

Re: Let's make the MADPHUC in Seattle!

I've been looking down that route a bit. The hubs & shafts from trailer parts USA are perfect for the center of the wagon wheel, but none of the axle tubes are long enough to combine the two wheels.

Re: Let's make the MADPHUC in Seattle!

Tiahaar - Your quick analysis is pretty much in line with how I am doing the math. My first quick pass showed a large moment-arm and tension forces at the axis too, so I immediately added a central shaft between the two wagon wheels. Without them it would be the one nut on the end of the axles holdi...

In trying to keep with the principles of BM, can/should we project a DJ's logo occasionally while that DJ is playing? Is there like some 'level-of-fame' point where this stops being appropriate?
