Re: Straighten PVC or buy new?

I've used the same ribs for 6 straight burns. They're permanently bent for sure, but they still flex and don't seem brittle. They'll be bent once the hut is constructed so I personally don't feel any need to either straighten or replace mine.

Re: Next Directions for Burning Man

Hoping the next big thing in music, is Talent .. My answer to when you say you are a DJ is, : OH! I'm sorry .. You have no talent ?? I always wonder if it's just my music snobbery... but I feel exactly the same way. Every time someone tells me they're a DJ, I just roll my eyes :roll: Oh, you know h...

Word for word quote of everything Pink and BBadger said. Spot on.... even down to this being the first burn I left early (left at 8PM Saturday). I was a little bummed to miss the man burn until I heard about the guy jumping into the fire. Everything was kept positive. Art was beautiful this year. Tr...

Re: Likely temperature range for 2017?

Last year had a few chilly nights. 2015 got much colder (I think it was 2015), It was never all that hot during the day and it got down into the 30s at night. There were a few REEEEEAAAAALLY cold early morning bike rides back to camp. I remember that! . . . The playa emptied out faster and more ste...

Re: Likely temperature range for 2017?

Did it really get that cold last year? I thought it got chilly a few nights, but overall the temperatures were pretty moderate last year. At least, that is what I thought. I better revise what I have been saying. hehe. Last year had a few chilly nights. 2015 got much colder (I think it was 2015), I...

Re: Hexiyurt Questions

I retape ALL seams EVERY year. The bifilament tape loses its stickiness more than you may realize. It may hold up just fine but in my mind, the expense of a couple rolls of tape each year for my shelter is worth it.

Re: One Main Sale Ticket!!!

Re: STEP progress--anyone got tickets yet?

This thread is very encouraging. Fortunately, I was able to get two tickets and a vehicle pass in the main sale... but it's still comforting to see that STEP actually works for people.

Question: Are all STEP tickets Will Call only?

Re: Tickets are out!

I just took a gander and didn't see any ticket pictures posted on Instagram. That's probably a sign that very few (if any) folks have received their tickets. It usually takes about 3 seconds for them to get shared.

Re: Pre-Sale Ticket Success

Oh how I wish I could spare the dough for a presale ticket. Perhaps is the masochist in me... but I actually get a bit of joy out of the stress of general sale day. That's probably because I've always been lucky enough to get a ticket *knock on wood*. Hopefully I can keep that streak alive this year...

Nah. Definitely a disgruntled Berner checking in but more so a disgruntled American checking in who doesn't want someone with Hillary's hunger for wealth and power anywhere near the top office in the country. Fuck me for wanting a president who puts the people first, right?
