Re: Don't stress about getting a ticket!

Same experience again this year. Bought 12 tickets from folks on CL in a week's time and left town with 3 more on the table. All for face plus fees, $500/ticket. It's not like that every week leading up to the gates opening, but people are bailing on going at all phases of the prep. A lot of people ...

Re: Camp Fuego's No Mercy Karaoke Bar & Open Mic

Preference to singers, musical performers, DJs or just highly motivated folks who are enthusiastic about our bar, stage & lounge c...

Re: Don't stress about getting a ticket!

OK, well here we are, in the last days and weeks before the burn and sure enough, there are plenty of face value tickets and vehicle passes available on Craigslist here in the Bay Area (yeah I know the majority of them are scalpers and scammers). More than we need to find for our camp of 74 people, ...

Re: Don't stress about getting a ticket!

When I come to a year where my friends and I don't have as many tickets available to us as we need for however many people want them, I'll agree. Meanwhile I'll expect the same thing this year that I've experienced the last 9 years: no tickets available until 4-5 weeks before the event when they do ...

Re: Don't stress about getting a ticket!

I'll strongly disagree with the nay sayers. My statements are based on my own personal experience year to year since tickets began selling out about 8 years ago. And it's based on the experience of others I've seen. I know of no evidence that tickets are impossible to get in the weeks before the bur...

Re: Looking for RV. Got tickets/vehicle pass.

While it's getting very difficult to find RVs available now (because they are all booked already), I've heard that there are a lot of vendors who have 5th-Wheel Trailers available to rent. They drop it at your camp site for you. You'd need to bus or drive into BRC to it.

Don't stress about getting a ticket!

Understandably, everyone is always anxious to get their tickets so they can know for sure they'll be able to go and get serious about their plans. But know that it will be very difficult and usually impossible to land a ticket before the 11th hour. Craigslist is largely nothing but scammers and only...

Re: Building my first Yurt & Swamp Cooler - Need Advice!

I highly recommend the ShiftPod instead of a hexayurt. Easier to store, transport, more expensive but worth it. ShiftPod.com. No affiliation with the company, just a satisfied burner customer. I have 6 which replaced 3 yurts and couldn't be happier.

Re: Trailer or Tent to Camp

I'd say it all depends on the wind that year. When there is no wind and therefor little dust, you'll be very comfortable in your tent under a shade structure. But when there is a lot of wind, your tent will fill with dust; the more wind, the more dust will collect inside your tent. And the dust goes...

Re: 7:30 Neighborhood Camps

Camp Fuego with its flaming horse and karaoke lounge is hoping like crazy to croon, drink and dance again in the 7:30 sector where we've been for the last 4 years, the last two as part of the 7 Sirens Cove. Even willing to take on the Esplanade to be in the hood--yikes!
