Re: When do Early Entry Passes get Distributed?

I know it's cutting it really close but we weren't sure of exactly how many we needed to set up the camp in time until recently. I already emailed my placer a couple times but no reply and I'm slightly worried because most of us early goers are car pooling and it's crucial that we get enough. :-/.

Re: If I buy a STEP ticket, then cant go, I'm screwed?

do they mail out step tickets or are they only at will call? You may only purchase one ticket through STEP; this ticket is non-transferable and can only be held at Will Call. A STEP ticket is only for you. [ADDED 2/15/12: 9:18 PM PST: We recognize the one-per person will dramatically effect the pla...

Re: If I buy a STEP ticket, then cant go, I'm screwed?

@mshaman - you are mistaken in your interpretation. It is non-transferrable in that you may not sell that on to another burner as you would a regular will-call ticket (regular will call can be transferred once fulfillment happens in June, either via support ticket or sending someone to the box offi...

Re: Random question for burners with pets.

As others have suggested, don't leave your pets alone while you're away. If you can't find a friend or relative, look into hiring a petsitter or book them into a kennel. If you can't afford to take care of your pets while you're away, you should reconsider whether you can afford to go away in the f...

I think it's been said before, but in addition to the documentation there will be a space where you can write an explanation of your situation.

I see 2012 as being a record setting year for low income ticket requests. I also see it as being a record year for unqualified requests for low income tickets.

Re: If I buy a STEP ticket, then cant go, I'm screwed?

Lets consider that for a moment... Lets say you are one of countless Burners trying to make the event. Your boss says "Yeah, we might be able to give you the time off". So, you buy a ticket through the STEP program, and then, weeks before the event, work informs you that you can't take the time off...

Re: Random question for burners with pets.

I see where you are coming from, the cost is a big issue for me as well though. Also the friend I have in mind was also my roommate so there is complete trust there as well as the fact that the cats are familiar with her, they tend to freak out around new faces. Although if she couldn't do it I wou...

Why can't you board them at a kennel "cat hotel"? You can use your vet or I bet there's good ones near the airport in your city.

Simon forgot the "serious answer first then snark" guidelines. I have four cats, two who live upstairs and two who live downstairs, and they don't mingle well.

I am honestly not sure what kind of helpful reply you envisioned. Find a neighbor or a relative, or board the critter at the vets or at a big-box pet store. It's not fucking rocket surgery. Are you just trying to vent your anxiety? Either you will find someone to look after your animal or not. Eith...

Re: Random question for burners with pets.

I know that there are a lot of people who will come walk your dog during the day for around $15-30 depending on where you live. There are some techs at my local vet that do this. I imagine that they would be willing to come by and check on the cats every other day for the same price or a little les...

If you try, they WILL be found, and you will NOT be allowed entry. Hard & Fast rule... Sorry.
Don't worry I never even once considered trying to bring them that's just stupid.

Random question for burners with pets.

So what if you can't find someone to take care of your animals for a week? I have three cats and no guarantee that I'll have a housesitter (if I am even able to go at this point). I'd feel awfully nervous about just stocking up a bunch of food and water for them and leaving them to their own devices...

And as an additional document question, they say 3 is the maximum. So what if you have a lot of small bills that add up?
