Re: BMIR live from Black Rock City

As always seems to happen with BMIR in our house, we'll be swaying to some lovely oontz and it will cut out. Repeatedly. Then completely need a reboot. Anyone out there have any tips? We've tried different browsers and different players and they all seem to do the same. I'm in the middle of a "...

Re: Playa Nose? Prevention and tips?

Last year, for the first time – and pretty much right off the bat, I started having troubles with my nose: Not only painful and hard to breathe, but also frequent and hard-to-stop nosebleeds. Seeing my suffering, our neighbour gave me a small tin of Burt’s Beeswax. The oils, peppermint and comfrey r...

Re: Midnight Poutine at Burning Man 2016 : Fundraiser

Yeah. Our camp makes a bar and a dance floor, rugs, sound system, public art. And we don't beg for other people to pay for it. It's called gifting. If you can't afford it, don't come. Mean spirited and ugly. The Midnight Poutine folks are some of the most giving people I know. They give out this gi...

Personally, my manuals often end up in the fireplace because I'd never find them again even if I kept them.

At least a couple of women rocked hiqabs or the like in "inappropriate" ways this year. One led her man around on a leash. Another wore only a honking black strap on and boots besides. Had I seen either not just in pictures, I’d have been thrilled. Not because they were making any kind of ...

Re: First-timer, coming in Thursday solo

I went ahead and wrote Burner Express to ask about a bulletin board, and YES, they do have an area for people to leave notes.

So asking your friends to saunter on by with the address once they know where they settle so you know exactly how to find them is an option, should you want to go that route.
