I'm from the Antenna Group and this will be my 3rd burn. My boss, Melody Haller, is a wonderful woman. I think you all should save your judgments for August and the playa. So saying that you've got 3 burns under your belt is supposed to give some kind of street cred--that you're some kind of vetera...

Re: I wll be bringing my kid for my own reason.

Fastest way to get BM shut down would be to ban kids. huh I always figured it would be shutting down the JOTS because of the trash or having a rainstorm like the one in '98 hit on Tuesday. As to the dust being a health risk, people get hurt or killed out there from things other than the dust. It's ...

Buckaroo Banzai opens on the playa. That film starts where Black Rock City ends. Is that the one with Adam Ant and the jamaican aliens from another dimension? Good movie, I think I'll add it to my netflix since I haven't seen it in awhile. You're thinking of Peter Weller in the title role. http://w...

One thing to keep in mind when handing out swag--where is a naked person halfway across the city from their camp going to keep your trinket?

...that is if you want to avoid contributing more to the MOOP issue.

Actually, reverse the process he stated and your cooler melt is good for drinking. With clean hands, pack your ice into 1 gallon (or larger) ziplock bags for reloading your cooler. Its much easier to clean your hands than keep your cooler clean. Well, without being too pedantic, that doesn't fall i...

You can't get rid of bartering and black markets--you get a group of people, you're going to get some kind of trade going.

However, I can understand why the LLC doesn't want to have Budweiser (or whatever) banners all over the fucking place, even though they could make a fuckton of money off of it.

If you have a clean cooler, and you keep your food in zip-lock bags, you can drink your cooler's ice melt. The problem isn't with starting with a clean cooler, it's keeping it clean. Cooler melt water? I'd say that falls under the category of "just because you can do something, doesn't mean yo...

I've had good luck with many, many years of re-using water containers--however, you MUST properly clean and sterilize the container before using again. Cleaning and sterializing is no big deal, and if you get a big bottle brush (like the kind hombrewers use for their fermenters), it goes quick. Ster...

Going by yourself is not the end of the world. It's fun to share the event with a good friend, but on the other hand if that friend discovers that they don't want to be there and they're going to hold it against you for the rest of their life, it ain't worth it. Never, ever talk someone into going--...

Me2, have you talked with any long-time members of DPW? They could give you a different perspective on Burning Man than those of us who only show up to fuck things up.

Make sure you have the conversation in well-lit place so the rest of us can watch.

Since you missed the "no vending" rule coming out of the gate, you may want to read up on how to prep for Burning Man since you can't buy anything out there except ice and coffee.

Hint : you'll need food, water and shade plus a means to get it there and back.

PJ will be making the trip to the playa this year (right now he's sitting in jar on my desk in my home office).

Those of us in Wheee!Ville will be putting something together for a memorial/wake/excuse to party.

Details will follow at some point in the near future.

Back on subject and ignoring your mother issues--don't bring out a regular car battery if you're planning on using it as your primary power source. A car battery is not designed to maintain a consistant voltage for an extended period of time. What you're needing is a marine or deep-cycle battery. Yo...
