Re: How To Plan Your Camp's Arrival After The Gates Open

The street closest to the Man/ inner playa is always Esplanade. The streets behind that are named, but they go alphabetically from one with a word starting with "a" closest to the Esplanade, back all the way to "l" (Laughing Sal this year) farthest away. Many of us just refer to them by their initi...

Re: How To Plan Your Camp's Arrival After The Gates Open

We are shooting for open space between D & E on the small number side. There is very little open space that meets that requirement - there is some, but all the purple areas on the map are reserved for theme camps. If you're through the Gate within a few hours of when they open, you get a firm "mayb...

Re: New burners: Being in a camp / getting involved

I created a camp last year full of single strangers and small groups, most of them first timers. It went super well and some really strong friendships were formed. There were some folk whose vibe didn't quite fit who aren't coming back this year but nearly all the campers who are returning are brin...

Re: Leaving Burning Man Early?

Purcitron, it shows that you will not be attending until 2017. That's 3 years from now. Who even knows if the event will be still going on then. Who knows what the population there will be. The event may have additional exits in 3 years. It may be in Iowa then. Why worry now, about something that i...

Re: 2014 Vehicle Pass results

Yes, you can leave at night. Traffic should be better than it is during the day, but you never know. Lot's of people will try to avoid the traffic. Once the man has burned, exodus starts and lasts for the next 36 to 48 hours. Please make sure the driver is sober and rested. good point. in your opin...

Re: Leaving Burning Man Early?

it sounds like the traffic is worse at 3am sunday than 9am sunday. It might be. Or it might not be. It is never the same. As has been said responding to your question, there is no way to know in advance how exodus is going to be, or at exactly what time anything at Burning Man will happen. It doesn...

Re: Leaving Burning Man Early?

-can you please tell me at approx what time the man burn & temple burn take place? thanks We usually get the go ahead to light the man around 9. This is hugely dependent on weather / wind conditions. The burn itself can last anywhere from half an hour to multiple hours as we saw last year. Unfortun...

Re: Leaving Burning Man Early?

Again, each year is very different and there is no real answer now. In 2013, there was a threat of rain, so large crowds left at the same time to avoid getting stuck in the playa mud. In 2014, I left my camp at 9:00am on Monday and never stopped all the way out to the pavement. Our group was expect...

good point, but surely there are less people leaving saturday night than monday?
