Re: Waiting room open? Promo code invalid?

Oops, nevermind.

I should have read the email. :)

Waiting room open? Promo code invalid?

The pre-sale ticket purchase button appeared on my profile page, but when I click on it I get a page that tells me my promo code is invalid or tickets are not yet available. Now I know they aren't yet available, but my recollection from the last sale I was in is that I should be getting a notificati...

Re: One item for BMan 2014 a day

Finished off the collar and front placket of my caftan with brocade ribbon last night. Looking very silk road-ish, if I say it myself. On to the hat!

Re: Burner express tickets

Thanks, Trilobyte. I've already joined my regional group, so as that wakes up and gets more active it will no doubt expand the possibilities. The (tentative) plan for shelter involved shipping a package to myself in Reno. Depending on size allowances I may still be able to go that route, we'll see e...

Re: Burner express tickets

I'm sorry that you missed places where info had been posted, but YES there will be a Burner Express bus service in 2014. Complete details are coming soon, and the site is expected to go live later this month. By comparison, last year the service was not announced until summer - there's definitely n...

Re: Burner Express Bus Service To/From BRC

As a first-time burner who's flying in, I was getting kind of nervous about Burner Express and the fact that their site still says details are coming in mid-March. So I made a pest of myself and emailed them to ask what was up. I figured it might reduce other first-timers' anxiety, and possibly even...

Catching Up

Obviously, methodically reading the eplaya from top to bottom, left to right is going to take me forever. I just found this thread, and now I feel compelled to catch up. The wife and I made up our minds in December or so that this year we're going to Burning Man. Since then I've: read tons of posts ...

Re: Individual Sale

Excuses if you see this twice, had some sort of posting error: That was slicker than a greased weasel! Got in, got 'em bought, got the confirmation email, in less that 5 minutes flat! HUGE kudos to the ticketing team--well done, folks!!! [Chrome, on a Mac, via Comcast Xfinity, from Decatur, GA, in c...

Re: Suggestion: Make it clearer registration is not FCFS

Hey, like I said, just a suggestion, not a complaint! I'm way too busy experimenting with shaving all my hair and coating my body with silicone caulk (so as to eliminate possible sources of MOOP) to get stressed out about ticket registration. I thought the WEBSERVERS looked a little stressed, though...

Suggestion: Make it clearer registration is not FCFS

Not a complaint, just a suggestion for a still-smoother process next time: It wasn't crystal clear to me that individual sale registration had no first-come, first-served component to it. So I set myself an alarm and jumped right in there promptly at noon PST so I was sure to get good and registered...

Re: Decatur, GA First-timers

Pozer--

Thanks for the well-wishes! We did a raft-in, hike-out Grand Canyon trip last year and got a foretaste of high-altitude dry heat. Very unfamiliar to a native New Orleanian! But at least I've already learned the all-important hydration lesson.

Re: Decatur, GA First-timers

Elliot-- Never saw anyone on the Metro or the Shinkansen in their underwear in six visits to Japan over 8 years, although I heard stories about both before we ever visited there. What I did notice: women in black-watch-tartan hot pants, patterned tights, and go-go boots; and men in one-size-too-smal...

Decatur, GA First-timers

Just doing what the section says--introducing selves. We're a 55yo couple, and we're planning to go to the 2014 Burning Man. Total newbies to this and still trying to figure it all out. Currently we expect we'll fly to Reno and rent some sort of vehicle. Aside from that we're pretty vague, but we're...
