Re: Actual single ticket cost

I just paid $494.87 for a will call ticket via BxB+ today for my wife. A shipped ticket would probably be right about that $508 number.

Re: If you are driving from the Pacific Northwest free staying at EaglesNest RV Park

Thanks for the continued offer of this. We had hoped to make it down last year but had a delay in our departure so didn't make it that far. This year that delay shouldn't exist so we'll be shooting to make our pit stop at EaglesNest.

Pedro, I've worn braid extensions for years. For itchy scalp relief: tee tree oil in a spritzer bottle is magical.
Thanks, I was thinking something like this would work. I assume she should spray it on the "exposed" areas of the scalp.

Re: HAIR concerns on the playa? ;)

I never have to worry about hair issues on the playa as I have none. That being said I have a question for my wife. First year she ended up with a rats nest (well not that bad, but yeah it was a wreck). Last year she had cornrows braided with extensions and it was so much better. The only thing she ...

Re: What happens if your camp is placed but doesn't have enough tickets?

It would be the 2nd one. Sorry for the confusing question... I'm asking for someone else. Yes, adding people to the camp should be rather easy. I didn't think someone from the BORG would come, count heads and issue a citation because we're short a few people based on our application - but wanted to...

Where are you based? I might be interested, but would want to conduct the transaction in person vs the horrible suggestion of Zelle/QuickPay or Bitcoin which offer ZERO protection to the buyer.

Did the right thing... Now looking for 2 tickets and VP

We were potentially going to be changing camps this year so I turned down DSG tickets (I know I was stupid), but we were still up in the air at the time. After some heated discussion with the wife, we decided to stay with our old camp so now I'm on the hunt for tickets. I've helped build the last 2 ...

In the past I've bought the $990 ticket and then come across a main sale ticket. At that point I actually sell the $990 presale ticket for $750, effectively splitting the cost difference between the two tickets. This is always done with friends who didn't get a ticket through the main sale channel. ...
