Re: Howling at the Temple Burn?

I hate the howling and dumb shit people do at temple burn, so I just go out to deep playa and watch it from a distance with my partner. I know that'll piss me off, and I know it's going to happen, so I take myself out of a situation where I will be (unreasonably?) pissed off.

Re: VP Order Cancelled?! Rant

That sucks to hear. I noticed last year in the last month or two before the event there were TONES of vp's available in the Alberta local community. Usually they're from theme camps that got overzealous and purchased all the DST and vp's they were offered before event knowing who they're going to (b...

Re: Main Sale Discussion Thread 2018

I know not to trust what the website & emails says.. and because of that I got my ticket! I logged in 20 minutes early and joined the waiting room.

Re: Tell me about your Regional... why should I go?

Update for my regional, Freezer Burn (in Alberta, Canada.. not the Texas Freezer Burn)

The producers picked 8 themes to put to a public poll, and the winner was:

Freezer Burn 2018: Fighter Jets v.s. Laser Sharks.

Re: LOVE BURN 2018 roll call

To be honest, this isn't one of the regionals that's been on my radar.. but I just checked the link added by the moderator.. and it looks like a swell time. Perhaps this just made it to the short list to attend in the next couple years (this year is a no-go.)

Tell me about your Regional... why should I go?

Hi Friends (and frienemies.) The fiancée and I have decided to take a few years off the big burn and focus on regionals for a while. We decided this after we realized we much prefer our own regional to the big burn.. and thought "I bet we'd prefer other regionals over the big burn as well." Obviousl...

Plug n Play section of Theme Camp

I just got from our theme camps annual retreat and thought about a crazy idea. What if a major theme camp sectioned off a small corner of their camp as a plug n play, sold tickets for a pretty crazy price (as you'd expect for a ticket that includes a yurt, food, booze, bike, water, shower, toilet, s...

Re: I don't get why you can buy in the pre-sale and then continue to buy tickets in the main sale.

Early bird tickets (even tho they're +/-1200$) should have the regular price on the ticket (so it can only be resold at the reg.price face value.) Call the additional +/-600$ a early bird fee, apart from the ticket free that the original purchaser must eat the cost of if they decide to re-sell. ^^^ ...
