Re: Has it really been 5 years since my 30 day ban?

Ha. A classic post if I ever read one. Of course you WILL be spanked again just for mentioning it. No biggie. We only pop in here once every couple of months anyway. All the qualifiers are priceless. Did it sell? Is this item still available?

Re: First thing to do on the playa in 2021

We will sit under an umbrella waiting for the placer. Drink beer, giggle and then trade stories of what went on for the last 2 years. Set up camp and sleep so we can go to work the next day. (We get there a week early.) If we get our bikes put back together we'll ride out and see who's here.

Re: So who is still going?

Yeah, I took that tour. It is decorated very nicely. The only time I stay in Reno is coming or going from the burn. With no restaurant, no safe parking and limited amenities it's not on my 'must do' list. I need my own bathroom for long luxurious showers.

Re: So who is still going?

You should have a back-up plan. Maybe reservations in Reno? The roads may be closed. I'm guessing the playa will be closed to camping or even day visiting.

Re: Contain Camps up in arms about being cut off?

I'm happy that our little camp has no such complications. I'm also intrigued by the dilemma. This isn't an, 'outside services' issue. It's a placement issue. Just say you have a container through the popular BRC program. Do you own, lease, rent it? It's full of gear somewhere and you counted on this...

Container Camps up in arms about being cut off?

A few days ago the BM sites exploded with butthurt and outrage. 'Container' camps were sent a letter explaining that they would no longer be placed as there is no more category called 'container camp'. They will get a couple of DGS links and they are welcome to apply as a theme camp or other type. I...

Hi Lissu, Welcome to ePlaya. It sounds like you want to join a camp that will provide for you. Later in the season you'll be able to find and pay for your burning Man experience from many Plug and Plays.
