Re: Don't build your for profit business on Burning Man

Why is BMorg allowed to profit off of TTITD but not Rangers?

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: Philosophical advance at home while under lockdown

I live in a city. Northern California 30 miles from San Francisco. With everyone's life in upheaval we are forced to take a closer look at our home and a closer look at our mortality. There are piles of free goods all over the burbs. These aren't just old clothes and unused housewares. These are thi...

Alabama...Really? And what would burners DO there? Those home prices reflect no job market. It doesn't look like fun at all. What would the locals think? Sorry, California born and raised.

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.

Contain 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.

If you volunteer at home it's only natural to give a helping hand at the burn. And on the flip side, volunteering at the burn has opened up the world of volunteering at home. All non-profits have paid employees at the highest levels. Does that mean you shouldn't volunteer at the animal shelter or To...
