Re: Alternate Roads to BRC, why aren't we making the most of them?

There are signs out on those roads telling you specifically not to stop and talk to the locals. That is a pretty good reason right there not to drive those roads. I know people who have, they were fine, but they said it was a little creepy out in those parts. Wouldn't recommend it unless you know t...

Re: 2017 One Item A Day For BM List......

Been learning how to fire spin and my group is hoping to qualify to perform at The Man burn. My first performance with real fire was this past weekend on a frozen lake in Minneapolis. I only caught myself on fire once. Always up for a new challenge! Nice, where is\was this? I just pulled into Minne...

Tickets bought in FEBRUARY\MARCH, possible or scam?

Ok, I am thinking I got screwed like a virgin. At least it seems that way. I got a ticket from a burner WAY back in February or March. I was told it was a DGS ticket. It was sitting in an envelope on my desk when my place burnt down at the end of March. Since the fire I was more concerned with findi...

Re: BRC on a motorcycle, a how to guide & FAQ

I'm in an apt, no garage, the only reason I still have a few camping items is because a friend had em. I lent him some stuff for a camping trip a few weeks before the fire. I got out of there with a pair of pants and my dog.

Does Rampart or EMT have a dentist on call? Last year I knew of two guys who left the playa due to tooth pain. I was considering bringing in a dental chair and a dentist this year.

Re: Vehicle pass for towed vehicle

I was told you cannot tow or have a second vehicle attached to your main vehicle unless t's a mutant vehicle. This is when I was considering hooking up with someone in Reno and mounting my motorcycle to the back and hitching that last stretch of 447 in an RV. A car might be a different story.

I am by no means a hexayurt expert, but have you built one before? If not, I would be nervous building one for the first time right before you head out to the playa. Hopefully they were precut and tested first for fit. It takes 2-3 people about 10-15 minutes to put a 12ft one together. I put up 7 o...

Re: BRC on a motorcycle, a how to guide & FAQ

So who's riding in this year?

My house burned down a few months back, lost all my good lightweight and expensive camp gear, thankfully the bikes were across the street at the time.

Working on gear, might just go without and sad face my way into someones loving arms. :(

The question I have is this: how are bikes treated as traffic during entry / exodus?

do you have a brand you recommend?
