Re: Burning Man 2012 Tickets FAQ

Sorry if this question has already been answered. How are the STEP registrants chosen to buy a ticket assuming there are more people seeking a ticket than tickets available. First you have to have been registered to buy a ticket in the general sale, then your sent an email asking you to confirm you...

Re: Trilo on Tickets

If you do attend, feel satisfied that maybe you "deprived" (quoted because that connotes entitlement) a bitter, I-must-state-how-many-years-veteran "burner" of a ticket and also spared us his or her presence on the playa. And now these people are preferred participants of BM, th...

Re: Protecting Turntables & Mixer from Playa Alkaline Dust!

as I remember it from last year the dust flies around 24/7, at night it is just dark and you don't see it, but if you look into a beam of light the dust looks like rain on a muggy day.

Re: Eliminate ravers to fix ticket problem

This makes me sad, I am 53 years old, and I was just getting the hang of being a raver. I have a solution, why not relax the rule on driving RVs around the playa, it works like this, regular burners encircle the playa in their RVs and drive around for a couple of hours and build up massive dust stor...
