Boulder to BRC, Leaving 8/24, Room for 1 more

Hey ePlayans, I posted this on the Rideshare board, but thought I'd try here as well. As the title says, I'm leaving Boulder, CO on the evening of Wednesday, August 24th, and hoping to make it to the Playa on Friday. I've got room in my Corolla for one other traveler and their light gear. A few thin...

Seeking someone in Reno to Ship things to

Hey EPlayans, I'm heading to the playa in a few weeks, and was wondering if there was someone in Reno (or near BRC) who I could ship things to and pick them up right before the burn. My car is kind of small, and it would be great if there were anyone who I could ship a box of costuming and such to a...

Ticket Transfer Troubles - Can anyone help?

So, here's my situation-- The short story: I sold my paper ticket to another member of my camp who's travelling in from Australia. There was an issue with the mail, and now she's here and her ticket is there. They won't let her on the bus without her ticket. I have photos of the hard ticket, and I'm...

Re: Advice: Moving to the Bay Area

Best advice I could give is to do some actual research on sites that specialize in the kind of information you're looking for. On its best day, this isn't much of a real estate board or neighborhood guide, and those types of resources already exist on the internet. SF and Oakland are both very big ...

Re: Advice: Moving to the Bay Area

Thanks for the advice, guys. I do have a car, so that's not too big of a deal. Also, I've been saving up, so I've got a few thousand dollars socked away for moving expenses, etc. The hardest thing to gauge (as an outsider) is the pros and cons of San Francisco vs Oakland. From what I've gathered fro...

Re: Advice: Moving to the Bay Area

I'm in IT (like everyone else in the area, it seems), and I hope to have a job before I get there.

What am I looking for? Somewhere safe that's either close to stuff, or close to a means to get to stuff.

Advice: Moving to the Bay Area

Hey guys-

I'm making plans to move from St. Louis, out to the SF Bay Area this summer (right before the burn, in fact).

Anyone have any advice for moving out to the Bay Area? What neighborhoods should I be looking in for housing? Any other words of wisdom?

Re: Toe shoes on the playa

I had a pair I wore last year. Your feet will get dusty, but then, so will everything. Honestly, I wore mine for a while, and then said "f- it" and just went barefoot for the rest of it. So much dust gets trapped in them and held against your feet, it gets kind of uncomfortable (but not un...

Rumor has it that the delay is due to the ongoing battle between BMorg and the Satan-worshiping Masonic Illuminati shape-shifting UFOs.

Re: "One Wish Granted" in center camp

This was a couple, a guy and a girl. I think her name was Ashley, but I have a terrible memory for names.

They had a cardboard sign that said "One wish granted." I think they said they were from the Bay Area.
