Geekster's subtle approach works. While on Ranger patrol I noticed a participant carelessly toss his cig on the ground so I picked it up and followed him for a while. When I finally caught up to him I simply asked if he had any room in his pocket for his moop since my pockets were "full". Out of sta...

according to the link provided above: http://www.cieux.com/bm/things.html • Gifts. Bring lots of cheap toys to give away. Please do not bring cheap "gifts" to the playa. Stuff from Oriental Trading Company is just crap and ends up as moop. This subject has been touched on in other threads as well. S...

"On Ice"
:shock: Hey! I already spend enough to get out there each year, I ain't paying for everybody else too! I know its a "gifting" community, but come on now.

If we lost the JOTS out there that might actually be a deterrant to folks looking to just come out and party and throw their trash in the john (and it would reduce the ticket price). Don't get me wrong, it would suck not having that service and in reality the event would be difficult to go on withou...

We rangered the Esplanade on Sunday and I remember there being about 8 burn barrels, give or take a few. Man, I can't believe what some people were trying to put in them. I guess a week in the desert can do things to your common sense. I love the idea of building other, smaller Men and burning them ...

Can they turn water into coffee? Sorry, had to go there. :twisted: They were a very friendly group, for sure. We were camped across from them in AEZ and I felt like I was losing touch with the whole self-reliance thing everytime I was offered a bottle of water on the way to the potties. I admire the...

What if the Man was something that EVERYONE created. As it stands, there is somewhat of a seperation between participants and the wooden dude. He's built by the org before a lot of people get there, then raised up above them where he becomes totally inaccessible. Then we are held at bay while he bur...

If I hear that lame "Hey, it's Burning Man" excuse for frat boy/drunk bitch behavior one more time out there... I will go through with my longheld ambition to rebar someone's neck to the playa. Maybe it is time to start working on my art project for next year: A magical hut with "Titties & Beer Here...

Fat Sam, you should talk to the group that gives out 10,000 bottles of water each year. Maybe they could switch to giving out coffee per your idea. They seem to be a rather dedicated group. Not sure how you would contact them, but they were located near the JOTS at 5:30 and Earth, across from Kidsvi...

Yes, the bandanas definitely belong over the mouths of those fellas.

Handkerchiefs work as well as dust masks/regulators, I've found. They are less bulky, they can double as sun protection for your neck and you can put ice/cold water on them to cool you down (the back of the neck is a prime regulator of your bodily temperature apparently -- and supposedly the seat of...

Let us hope that all these wonderful experiences for newbies will translate into more artwork and greater overall participation in the coming years as the city seems to be in a transition period where many veterans are not returning or are just too tired or financially drained to continue the huge p...

Now comes the hard part -- trying to bring that same feeling to "camp reality" where you'll have to spend the next 357 days until going "home" again, as they say.

I wish you luck.
