Re: Who got tickets in the Directed Group Sale?

Super smooth process, had the usual panicked moments but didn't refresh and after about 10 total minutes I got my tickets! I hope the main sale is this easy for everyone!

Re: 2014 Moop Map in HD

Updated with the final map for 2014. Easy download link that will expire at some point. Annoying mediafire download link that will last forever. For dust and giggles here are links to the HD maps from 2011 , and 2012. See you next year. Example: http://i.imgur.com/oWivgyr.jpg

Yes, it seems like that link no longer works. I'll ask the guy on reddit to see if we can get it back up. It's a moot point really though, as the new map should be out tomorrow.

Re: 2014 Moop Map in HD

I just noticed that at some point the 2012 Moop Map HD thread was moved to the leave no trace forum, which didn't exist when I originally posted that thread. So if the mods want I guess this thread should probably be moved there as well. Makes more sense in that location.

Exodus 2013

My time spent in Exodus has been either mind numbing (8+ hrs, 2011), or non-existant (freakishly easy Monday Exodus 2012). I loved just rolling straight out in 2012, but given the alternate, my 2013 departure was the best Exodus ever.... Taking "temporary communities" to the next level!

Maybe you re-use yours. I just chop mine up into little bitty pieces and let it blow away in the playa wind at the end of the event. One less thing to haul out.

Best guesses for what will be announced on Jan 4th for ticket details? Post predictions here. Closest guess or correct answer wins one billion burner bucks*.

I predict no tiers, $375 flat rate.







*burner bucks only redeemable at the Empire general store.
