Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

I've been silent here since the idea about the lottery was first posted on eplaya. My husband and my theme camp were eager for 2012 after a five-year saving-money-and-gathering-a-larger-group hiatus. We are/were a small camp, but we offered everything we had in 2006, even though we ended up being on...

Re: New Burningman Ticket Process - 2012

As a person with enough money to build a camp and buy a ticket at whatever tier there is (although one always would like to save what one can, especially now), I feel absolutely horrible for those who are going to plan, scrimp and save and will end up paying more than they would've last year. It is ...

Re: 2012 Reno RV rentals

We've been looking, too, coming from the Bay Area. I got a response from a burner-friendly place owned by a burner mentioned on the BMan website 'resources' page as being a place that doesn't jack up the prices for burners. This is what I was quoted (this was the "just lowered" price): 25'...

Re: So my shrink said....

Maybe your mom is recognizing at some level that you are changing, moving away from her--and are going to do something completely different from what she would do--and this scares her.

Oh, yeah. Completely understand that.

I grew up in San Diego and never felt like it was real. As an adult, going back, I realize that is because many, many (not all) of the people who live there are... ghosts with smiles.

I've been thinking about this since the OP posted, and feel worse and worse about it.

Re: virgin question: is it REALLY that hot?

Our first burn, in 2005, on our very first morning, my then-future husband and I ran into a guy wandering down the street with a thick, heavy coat on in over 100 degree heat. He was weaving and delirious with cracking lips and an unfocused stare, and kept going in and out of consciousness. We steere...

Re: Rename Critical Tits?

Women are so much more than their parts ;)

And there are more creative ways of demonstrating freedom and self-determination than by bearing breasts to what's now become a sea of cameras. It would be nice to make that clear in the title.

I think your idea to rename CT is a great one.

This thread is making me sad somehow. :( New burners need to be educated, no matter their age. We haven't been to B Man since 2006, and are going again in 2012. In talking to 20-something virgins in our northern CA town, we hear the same thing: B Man is a big rave, people do drugs and have random se...

Re: Doesn't the new theme get posted right after the Man bur

As has been posted elsewhere, they are working to get the permit increased for 70,000 attendees by 2016 and are converting to nonprofit status. It's very unlikely this will be the last burn.
