Re: "Burning Man's Culture is in Danger"

National Socialists (Nazis) - Only around for a generation, killed less than 10 million people. Today they are seen as a fringe group that nobody really supports and your odds of even seeing are slim to none. Communists - Around for hundreds of years, still out marching to this day, killed over 100 ...

Re: Any tips for a very, very basic bar

We built a simple portable bar a few years ago. First we built a square box from from 2x2 then used light weight trim boards to create an "X" on all sides for strength, then we wrapped it with a festival sheet around the sides. The top is a removable piece of plexiglass with another decorative sheet...

Re: Leaving No Trace in Regards to Carbon Emissions

I'm all about putting things in perspective. How do you think Burning Man compares to the wildfires that occur EVERY FRICKING YEAR in Northern California, Oregon, and Nevada? Not even a damn blip on the map. My back 40 burned up a week ago and released more Carbon in a matter of days than our whole ...

Re: Truck camping questions.

I would highly recommend investing in a pop up shade structure to put over the pickup. It makes a huge difference. 10x10 will cover the bed and 2 feet off the back. Without it, that camper shell will be unbearable from 9 AM until well after dark.

Re: Leaving No Trace in Regards to Carbon Emissions

Here is another way to think of it, what are your emissions like normally? If you were not at Burning Man, would you still be driving? Using AC? Running appliances, consuming food, creating trash ect... For that week of your existence, do your emissions increase due to being at BM?

Re: Carport shade questions

Something I've found helpful in all my camping adventures, not just BM, is using canvas instead of plastic tarps. They are softer, don't make as much noise, and they don't leave moop like the woven plastic ones. They also seem to breath better. The initial cost is kind of high, but worth it. I'm sti...

Sadly, I think all of this is inevitable. It is simple math. Every year, more people want to attend the event while ticket sales stay the same.

Nice work. Add some siding and you'll have one of those mobile tiny houses. Thanks! And that's not a bad idea - but I've never worked with it. Is it pricey? Or heavy? That depends on what you buy and where. You'd want to do some frame work with 2x4 as well if you decide to add siding, otherwise it ...

There are signs out on those roads telling you specifically not to stop and talk to the locals. That is a pretty good reason right there not to drive those roads.

If the DEF freezes (like it would have here the last couple days) then the truck goes to idle mode just as it would if you ran out.

If a ticket is available on craigslist for 10,000 dollars, and someone is willing to pay that price, then it will sell for 10k. I pe...

Eric, I was commenting on the resale of tickets via "scalping." Those who buy "face value tickets" for $1000 dollars don't care that the ticket says $390 on it, they know they are paying over face value. If face value was $1 it wouldn't mean anything to them because they paid $1000 for it. As long a...

Re: Discuss Philosophical Ticketing Policy - Was Lone Ticketing Genius

The face value of the ticket means nothing. You could put $1 on there and as long as it still got you through the gate, it'd sell for whatever people are willing to pay.
