Re: RIP Larry Harvey

Wow. I'm a bit sad of the timing of his death, but I'm grateful to be a part of this community he help shaped, develop and grow into something that will live on for years to come. I'm curious to see how this year's event will incorporate various tributes and memorials for Larry. This should definite...

Re: I had a vivid Burning Man dream last night.

I Just came from a conference a few weeks ago in Vegas, I dreamt I was at Burning Man collecting gifts from camp "booths" and was observing all the art installations in a large wooded area with open fields.... Don't know why, but my Burning Man dreams are always in this forest open area. Whats even ...

Re: Next Directions for Burning Man

But from what I'm seeing and hearing, there is a new generation coming in and they have no clue whats going on.

Re: Functional Desert Wear from Thrift Shops

I ordered my cheap ski goggles from China and placed a piece of tape over the bottom hole. Best thing I brought to the playa. Even gifted my spare googles. Plan to order a few more. I found some military boots at the thrift store and paired them with my comfy socks. Forgot I had them on. Worked, wal...

Re: Burner clothes for those without perfect bodies

I did notice on my last trip, there were thrift shops a plenty on the playa. I still have a loud Hawaiian shirt that was in really good quailty and were on special occasions in the DW. In my camp, we had a few " I'm cleaning out my costume bag, take want you want" moments. Some of my best outfits we...

Re: Burning Man 2017 Ticket Information

You'll have to wait about 2-3 weeks before the event starts to see demands increase for legitimate tickets. It may sell before then but I will be shocked if the week before its not gone. But like anything, its still a gamble. An expensive, risky, high stakes gamble.

Have fun!!! :mrgreen:

Re: Let's make the burn a truly multi-ethnic event.

So I think all my points have been stated already... Part of the challenge is perception, but that deals the individual. A good question is what are they exposed to in their community? That will tell you were they will "hang out". I've had the same response organizing TEDx events for the past 7 year...

Most of our people took the 6am bus last year to SF. Our camp was broken down and packed, as were many, and I think if I were traveling on the bus I'd rather get in it at 6am while it was still cool vs. hanging around the shell of BRC with no shade. For us, it's not like Sunday night (Temple Burn) ...

So based on this conversation, would it be safe to say if I catch the 12pm Burner Express and heads towards SFO for a 12am flight, I should (in theory) be to catch my flight? (yes, its 12 am flight departing to arrive my destination at 9am)

Cot, Sleeping bag or air mattress?

Gooday all! I've done plenty of camping at state parks and lake sides, but I'm curious of the environment there at BM. How much dust tracks into your tent making the floor an icky gritty mess (hence cot) or a bit dusty but not that bad (sleeping bag or mattress)? What's your preference for sleeping ...
