Re: Q/POC Camp

I don't think there is and I'm already involved with a camp but I'd still be interested in meeting up with queer persons of colour who go.

Re: Biking to the burn

Alright, I am both a virgin big burner and hopeful of being able to bike into the burn..all the way from Eugene, OR. I've toured before and I'm not going to be alone on this adventure....I'm wondering if you have any advice for someone who is both going to the burn for the first time, and arriving ...

Re: ASL on the playa

I'm Deaf/hoh and I'm going this year. I always hope to meet other Deaf folks but I rarely do, usually only very briefly. Hearing people often find me no fun to practice ASL with because I'm a speech therapists wet dream... it can be hard to get me to stop speaking English sometimes to them since I l...

Re: leave to pick someone up and return

I do all sorts of stupid things and I wouldn't really want to walk that stretch.... I can say this from doing that on a bike. Too many cars not paying attention because nobody is really used to seeing pedestrians (or even cyclists) on that stretch and so they're looking for massive amounts of steel ...

Re: Biking to the burn

with that said i know a few people who do it.. one who does it often and they get by fine... i believe the one who does it often takes the route up toward pyramid lake from reno then round the lake to 447 instead of going through i-80/fernley... the trip is about the same distance either way.. but ...

Biking to the burn

No, I'm not suicidal... nor am I a virgin in any sense of the word. Can't tell you if I'm crazy as crazy people seldom know if they're crazy but I reckon my interest in crossing the desert on a bike might qualify me. :twisted: Anyway, last year I did the stretch of the route from the store in Empire...

Re: leave to pick someone up and return

Yep, you can do this. Don't forget to purchase an in/out pass. I'd keep your stub, receipt, and ID with you just to be prudent.... better well prepared than delayed/stuck outside.

Re: Sneaking into Burning Man

Here's the other thing no one mentions about sneaking in- if you're crossing open playa on foot or on a bike PG&E might never get to have their way with you- LE and the BLM will likely find you first. I came in early on a bike last year. If you are a volunteer who needs to associate pretty often wit...

Re: What constitutes "low income"? (talk amongst yourselves

If my response seemed defensive, it because it was. If "they" really are reading these boards and people are trying to say that 13,000 a year is absolutely NOT low income frankly upsets me. It's a low income ticket not just a no income one, and I really hope the person who asked that question above...

Re: Low Income Ticket Program

I have someone I hope to have come with me and the original plan was to cross our fingers for her to get a low income ticket and for me to pay for most (if not all) of it. (I volunteer so I'm already settled for a ticket and did not go though any other sale.) However, I'm looking at the documentatio...

Re: Volunteering=stubs???

You're probably getting some slack because (a) the culture which creates a general expectation that people volunteer without looking for something in return and (b) there are many people who have worked their assess off volunteering each year (some of whom don't get a gift ticket) who just don't lik...

Re: Survival Guide for College Students Missing First Week?

I've missed the first week or the last week of classes every year for Burning Man. I just contact my professors in advance and let them know and ask them not to drop me and to let me take the test at another time (most will, especially since I'm disabled so they can stick the student disability cent...

Re: Will my tent be ruined?

If the family expects the tent back in similar condition, don't bring the tent. I brought the family tent my first year. Thank goodness it was the same tent I'd broken a pole on once as a kid (a friend and I got an idea into our heads to use it like a giant hamster ball >_< ). My parents (being the ...

And the idea for some sort of ambient sounds, too. I probably won't be able to hear it... If I stop in at the temple ...
