Re: 2 First Timers looking for a camp

This will be my third year in a row at BM. First year was great, in a camp with my daughter, son in law, and friends. Then the camp disbanded, so last year I camped with a camp in which I knew no one. It was very large, and everyone already had their cliques, so was hard to fit in and find new frien...

Re: 2015 Highlights.

Going by a ring of plastic barrels set up on the playa one day, having no idea what they were supposed to be. Coming back a couple of days later seeing people playing a cool beat on them with the attached drum sticks I had previously missed. Finding one of the few remaining open drums and joining in...

Same here. I didn't hear a thing from the time the torches came out until the front of the temple fell with people coming together in a respectable type of drone for a few seconds. I never heard music.

Re: Trash

This was my second burn. I realize it was very windy and hard to hold things down, but I saw much more moop on the playa and other places this year than last year. At first I would pick it up as I saw it, then realized I would be spending all my time filling a bag with moop. So sadly I would leave s...

Re: Law Enforcement in 2105

Last year, I (personally) overheard BLM officers at Earth Guardians say after the torrential rains, "we're gonna have a problem giving out tickets for water on the playa this year". That is so fucked up. Same as cops in cities having "quotas" on tickets. :x They deny that there are quotas and deny ...

Re: Lifting The Ban On Feathers

Wrong on both counts, I think. What happens when there are trash receptacles is that people use them, fill them. And when they are filled, other people feel empowered/entitled to leave their trash next to them. It would mean more MOOP hitting the playa. That's even before you get the effect of peop...
