Re: Ticket Ethics (A true story)

Ehhh... Q. You had your ticket, sounds like you were still bargaining with her to buy her ticket !? Or just suggesting she drop her price and sell it elsewhere ? Just curious.... Yeah, I was just suggesting she drop her price to move it. The fact is she'd already sold another ticket on eBay (for wh...

Ticket Ethics (A true story)

Hey all, This year has been very instructive in terms of ticket ethics for me (and others, I'm sure). I wanted to tell a quick story and let other Burners weigh in on the ethics of how I handled the situation. So I was somebody who didn't get a ticket in the lottery and initially thought, "Okay, thi...

Re: Seeking advice for transporting hexayurt on roof on carg

Hey, I transported a folding 8" hexayurt on the top of a rental Ford last year. I pray your rental is not a Ford, it was a 2010 or 11 model year and the playa dust killed the engine immediately. Anyway, this is how I did it: 1. Fold up hexayurt in nice tight package 2. Securely wrap with rope and bl...

Re: Maid Marian talks about ticket issues on the Burning Blo

So, then you WERE given a chance, just like everyone else who entered the lottery.. edit: but you wanted it tilted in your favor? No. I wanted 1 entry for 1 ticket. Not 12 entries for 1 ticket, as I saw many people, including my friends, do. I'm not going to argue this point with you beyond this po...

Re: Romantic Relationship issues with 2012 Burn

I will just add that 2011 was my "relationship Burn" and it was brutal and I do mean brutal.

And I was prepared, had good communication, worked hard at it, did everything right.

Even when you do everything "right", it still can -- and probably will -- kick your ass.

Good luck.

Re: Maid Marian talks about ticket issues on the Burning Blo

i guess some of the community would have been happier if the longtime burners got first dibs before newcomers from the beginning (in a mad first come first serve rush) I would have been happier if I had gotten an even chance to get my single ticket. Unlike what happened, in which I was placed in a ...

Re: Ticket fiasco reaction from the LLC

Yeah, I'd go for some sort of staggering. It's an idea at least. Still: Goodell emphasized that the burner ethos calls for people to only sell tickets for face value – which is $240-390 for the 40,000 tickets going out next week – and she said she believes there will be enough tickets to satisfy dem...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

This new system is fair to no one. I'm now wondering if the BMORG did this deliberately, having guessed that it would absolutely shatter the legacy of big, planned theme camps and big art projects. It sounds a little crazy, but maybe crazy like a fox: do a little creative destruction on your own ev...

If the event is going to get any bigger, we need a bigger road. Does the BMORG (or do we) want to fund that, directly or indirectly?

Hello all, On a different topic. Our rental car situation has gone south and I'm now faced with a dilemma: I can accept the vehicle they give me, but in all likelihood, it won't have a roof rack. Is it a dumb idea to strap the hexayurt, bareback, to the top of a rental? I don't have a very high risk...
