Re: Serial Rapist on the playa

A similar thing happened to my friend at Camp Want-It, but they were not camp members. Some wack job was rubbing his hard cock on his stomach and hanging on to my friend's sister. She was trying to get him off her and leave him alone. Some dudes from Camp Want-It intervened and got a ranger. Turns o...

Re: Playa conditions?

One thing I love about Burning Man, is you cant trust anyone. One year I convinced several hundred people Daft Punk was playing at some random inner city camp and there were a ton of people there. I also convinced an entire camp of virgins they weren't burning the man that year due to wind condition...

I realize that if I don't find the camp I'm looking for I will have to join one of the more primitive camps or do it myself, but that wasn't what my post was about. It was about finding an open space in a more developed camp- if there is a spot in one, great, if not I'll have to manage. I realize i...

But it's soooo tempting to pick on the DJs! :lol: I may not make it to TTITD this year, but if I do, I will have a couple of paiannas with me, yes. Really bad ones, of course -- what did you expect.

Let me see if I have this straight: You have been to TTITD 13 times, are an accomplished DJ, yet nobody is beating down your door to work your magic in their venue. Is that pretty accurate? If so, then I would say that you (as most of your contemporaries also happen to be) suck. Don't mean to be cr...

Question about leaving and coming back to the Playa

So, I am curious what is needed to leave and come back. We'll be showing up Monday, and coming back Thursday. Do we just need the ticket stub, or do we need to miraculously not destroy a wristband or whatever in that time span?
