Lithuania Regional Burn?

Strongly considering a trip to Lithuania this year and was playing with the idea of having it coincide with their Regional event, if it is happening. All of the internet research I've done so far seems to indicate that it happened in 2012, but not 2013. Not entirely unheard of. Was wondering if anyo...

Re: Vehicle Passes and Burning Man Traffic Issues

Re-posting right from the Blog: Two questions come immediately to mind: 1) Will non-participant vehicles need these? Every water truck and loo-sucker? DPW trucks? How about the trucks used to haul the containers (local or otherwise) on and off the playa? Being from Boston, we’ve had some issues in t...

Re: Last minute panic thread

Also, how do early crews find out if the Gate road is closed? Do we all just huddle in Gerlach until they let us in? I mean, the weather reports look fine by the time the Gate opens, but for those of us showing up between now and Saturday... That's what radio is for - you can tune into BMIR! I've t...

Re: FOP - feet on playa.. how long for you? 2013!

We've got art, two art cars, and a camp full of goodies to get built. No problem..... FOP in 4 days, then ten days of desert life and ou...

Gotcha. We East coasters are pretty Zen right now (most of 'em anyway).

The cross-country drivers have mostly left by now. Tossing a few last...

I should add, please carry your bike to shelter with you, if at all possible. Don't be a tool and just leave it out on the playa.

But also time for your feet to breathe so they don't rot. -Carry extra gear on you when out of camp if it looks...

Likely, in part because of your help Savannah. Thanks!

Just to resurrect an old post, I'd like to confirm that Booty will indeed be returning to AutoSub this year.
Friday night as usual.

We're located at 8:30 and Esplanade this year, so don't be looking for us on the Berlin side.
