Re: Any Camps/Villages still open?

It really sounds like you would be better off without a camp. The reasons for preferring solo travel are magnified at the burn, meeting people is just as easy in open camping/at events/etc as it is in a camp and if you're bringing everything you need all a camp can supply you with is the potential f...

The Direct Group Sale tickets cost the same amount as General Sale tickets.

Also the extra cost of the Pre-Sale tickets covers the Low Income discount whereas the extra from the Da Vinci ticket goes to art.

It's Pabst* Blue Ribbon, a type of beer. It's quite popular on playa because it is quiet watery and thus refreshing and easy to drink a lot of. It's also pretty cheap. I think it is what is sometimes called a "session beer" Also worth noting since you're a pom; they drink it cold here. Ice cold. *I ...
