Another vote for, I think this thread should have died. So why am I posting now? Been offline due to work overload, I'm a teacher. Many schools now issue IDs when class pictures are printed up.

I am now beyond distracted. I thought that I didn't want to spend 18 days on the playa and that 12.5 would be just fine. Wrong. I can't think of anything else now. I'm like an addict on the Eplaya just trying to get a little fix of BRC. Thing is I don't have anyone cracking a whip over me. I don't o...

Sorry, but I'm kind of doubting that this is a serious inquiry. But just to humor you and say you really wanted to do such a thing, let's look at how it will impact the event. The burning of the Stick Man is just one of many events at BRC. However it is the biggie. Do you think a bunch of people wan...

Re: chill out, Captain

As for the suggestion of moving to private land, it's my understanding that the one Burn year in the mid-90s that was held on private land was a real bad experience for BM org. I'll let folks who were around then fill in the details, but evidently there was so much price gouging for needed services...

Wow, Miss Nev, what an amazing story. I think I saw a couple of posts indicating that you were pregnant at BM from the old Eplaya. Didn't realize it was that close to the end!

Did you sleep in a tent or trailer when preggers, and when you brought the baby?

At the risk of sounding elitist, I'm gonna say that BM is basically an expensive party that isn't wise to attend unless you have the disposable income to blow and still keep your bills paid. Perhaps it has come to that for some people. Though historically it was about $23 to get in. Even now the Bo...

Re: Does anyone know.....(question for NV or California peop

Is it legal to record a phone conversation without asking the person? Legally, you must tell the caller that the call may be recorded or have a beep tone every (I think) 5 seconds or so. Whether it's admissable in court varies, but usually no. Remember the whole Monica Lewinsky thing and the tapes?

PREGNANCY

Someone was asking about this in another thread. There might be threads in the old Eplaya, but not the current. Would be curious is anyone who has been pregnant on the playa, would be willing to share their experience and tips.

Thanks!
