Re: 2011 deaths, injuries, arrests and tickets

The death that I heard about, from an ESD friend, was an older guy who died in his tent during the night only to be found by his son the next morning in a pool of his own vomit

Re: Playa Names

I got the name Starbuck this year...it was originally Starfucker, since one of my favorite things about the burn is to actually be able to see the stars (I'm a bit of an astronomy nerd), but that was too close to Starfuckers. So it morphed into Starbuck, since I'm also a very vocal fan of Battlestar...

Re: Moving to Cali and need some location advice PLEASE

If you're looking for warm weather, you won't find too much of it in San Francisco or northern California in general.

Re: Your personal most bizarre/WTF moment of 2011

There was a couple who parked right next to the jots on B near 9:00, they had a little pup tent they slept in next to the car but for the most part they spent the entire burn (as far as any of us could tell) inside their vehicle. Every time any of our campmates went past, they were in there napping,...

No way, Planet Earth rocked! It was so ridiculously nice to hear awesome 80's music while trying to fall asleep rather than obnoxious dub step. It gave the whole 9:00 Plaza a very chilled vibe. 80's music?! I hope they're around again next year. Me too! It was seriously refreshing hearing duran dur...

What, attitude from the DPW? I'm shocked, shocked. Yes, while they are surely among the hardest working and longest-staying on the playa, saying "we built this city" has always been to me an unpleasant expression of that famous attitude. You worked very hard, and did a valuable service fo...

Re: cooling your tent or van

I built one and it worked ok. I think my ducting was too narrow and it hurt the efficiency, though.

My monkey hut ended up working so well, that by wednesday the cooler had moved out of my area and over to keep our camp's stereo equipment from overheating

Awesome, glad you guys liked it! We love the dome too, this year was its 10th burn and it is pretty nice and cozy.

Re: exodus

We left during the the Temple burn (watched about half of it from camp before we headed out) there was virtually no wait. It took maybe 30 minutes to go from the 9:00 plaza to 447.
