Re: Hello all you dusty burners.

I suggest you don’t join a camp your first year, your first year is an introduction to BM, get the lay of the land, explore. Forget about list of camps and that stuff. Concentrate on preparing for camping with just you and your wife. Maybe bring some art that you might what to gift. Keep it simple f...

Re: Commodification Camps: Acclimate your employees

Very sad indeed. I did not “discover” BM until last year. I know it’s not the same as in the past, but I still had a great time and will going again this year. I was amazed at some of the RV “city’s” I passed by, some of which I am sure were p+p. I have heard of a guy standing in the street directin...

Re: PVC: bellend vs. connectors

I followed the instructions according to this website (see below) for BM2107, worked out great. Structure held up without any noticeable damage during the few wind storms we had that week. The web site does not mention anchoring down the hut. This year I bought some ½ - 18 in lag screws / and two ch...

Re: Sizing a Monkeyhut.

Wow Strata and Silvergirl – You guys got this down to a science! Great write ups, just missing the finite element analysis! My MH survived the few brief wind storms last year, I dodged a bullet because I did not anchor the ends down with rope and lag screws. Wont make that mistake this year. Now I j...

Re: $1,200

We bought the $1200 tickets for 2017 which was our first year. We tried the STEP sale after a while I gave up on that and bought the $1200 ticket on June 25. This year we got lucky in main sale. Somewhere I read that the last chance to buy $1200 tickets is just before the OMG sale, but not sure abou...

Re: The NRA and outdoor brands like Camelbak & Camp Chef

Removing assault rifles from the equation may help, who’s to say? It might even make it worse, replace the guns with a fertilizer bomb or a truck as examples. Sad as it is Crazy always finds a way A few facts 1927 – Bath, Michigan school – weapon/bomb – 43 students and teachers died 1958 – Chicago s...

Re: New from Ohio

If you have all your camping gear it seems like you would want drive from Ohio not fly, unless of course you pay a ton of money to ship the gear to Reno and rent a car? Anyway, from my experience, 2017 was me and my wife’s first year, we easily made friends with our camping neighbors and had a good ...

Re: OK so what the hell did I miss (the good old days)?

Thanks to all for the responses. One of our camping neighbors was living in San Francisco back in the day, associated with the cacophony society, went to a few burns in the early 90’s, 2017 was his first burn since then, he brought his 20 yo son with him. I ask him how it compared to the old days, H...

OK so what the hell did I miss (the good old days)?

What I would like to know is this, things that happened say in the 80’s and 90’s at burning man that don’t happen Today, or maybe new stuff that did not exist in the old days that happen...
