Re: Main Sale Ticket Success?!

LOL - and they want to add 20000 more to this scenario?! Might want to get a grip on the current situation before expanding even further, IMHO

Re: Main Sale Ticket Success?!

Did anyone actually receive an access code? Where did you look, those of you that actually made it to the purchase page? Just in case a miracle occurs, i’d like to be prepared!

Re: Main Sale Ticket Success?!

What’s strange is that nobody seems to have gotten tickets - usually by now there are SOME people posting about being victorious. Anyone heard of a completed transaction?

Re: Main Sale Discussion Thread 2018

It looked like the server clock was about 90 seconds behind the time on my laptop/phone/etc. When the timer hit zero, I got into the queue and now my guy is 3/4 of the way across the screen, taking his leisurely stroll!

Hey, Jordan - it's been a while! I got that error too after leaving the keyboard for a minute. When I saw it my reaction was to hit Back on the browser. I hit it twice, and got back to where I could reenter the queue. I noticed that the clock wasn't quite in sync with the computer, by over a minute....

Re: It's.... The 2017 Main Sale Excitement & Congrats Thread!

Woohoo! I think this year must be karmic payback for last year - two of us got in and got two tix each (from different locales), the same two of us that never got past the strolling (crawling) green man last year. Our little group is all set - so there's hope, y'all!

Post-burn in Reno?

Hello all - This will be our first burn since moving to Reno (we've lived and gone to BRC from many places), and inquiring minds want to know: are there any things that go on like pool parties, events anywhere, anything that we should keep an eye out for when people return to Reno or pass through?

I went into one around 5:30 and I on Friday night and got a barbershop quartet singing what sounded like the disclaimer on the back of your ticket, or something similar - VERY well done, lasted a few minutes - I even lingered to hear the end! :D

Re: Setlists from Burning Man 2013

Your best bet is to get in touch with the camp where you heard the set. They should be able to get you in touch with the artist - and then you've just got to hope they kept a list AND speak your language! Some camps record their sets, so if you're lucky, you can re-live it, should you choose to do s...

Leave no (dust) trace in the RV - the shoe pile!

Has anybody got a good setup/trick/ritual to stage or stash your playa footwear and minimize the dust that gets trampled into the RV?

We've currently got an RV reserved (as do other groups of friends) from Silver RV Rentals in Los Angeles, also known as LA Discount RV Rentals. The Yelp reviews are mixed, so I thought I'd throw the question out here - has anyone used this business in the past? Any experiences to report one way or t...

Looking for word on Pink Mammoth

We were hoping to be within wandering distance of the Pink Mammoth this year, I don't see them on the theme camp list, and nothing on their site either. Does anyone have any info? (I know I can email their djs, but I thought I'd throw a general question out first.)
