Re: german walkie talkies in the US

A trip from Germany to the playa is expensive enough already as is - save your money and skip the radios (which after the burn will be illegal to use in Germany, btw - so you'll throw them away after a week?). You won't be needing them. I bought radios for the burn a couple of years ago and we only ...

Re: Digital Apex

BMORG defines what grants they'll give to particular kinds of art, as do other granting organizations. In BMORGs case, they choose not to grant to music-based art installations as I understand it. I think it's a poor decision, as BM could encourage more types of musical art by providing funding for...

Re: how to fly into Reno, pick up a bike, and get to the gat

to agree with graidawg - You don't need a bike. Walking around BRC is great and you will discover many things that you'll miss on a bike. And really, if you don't have a plan yet of how to dispose of your bike afterwards, then don't even bother getting it. I remember years where the playa was so bad...

is it allowed to spray clean grey water on the playa flor for dust reduction (i.e. melted ice water, water used for showering without soap, etc) Don't know if it's allowed, but please don't. Odds are it'll leave an inconvenient mud puddle, which in the worst case can turn into a pothole or speed bu...

Funny story about non mutant vehicles - on burn night, my girl and I walk on (I think) 5:00 towards the esplanade. Between A and B we see a surprisingly clean sedan drive by, towards esplanade. Quick visual check, no DMV bumper sticker, no Artery permit behind the windshield...maybe someone arriving...

Re: No Entry Quotes? + Exodus

Pretty sure the speed limit from pavment to gate is 20mph. Nope - Gravel to Gate = 10 mph, 5 is suggested as it creates less dust and doesn't mess up the roads as badly. Speeding on the way in makes the cars mess up the roads. Speeding on the way out makes the roads mess up the cars. I've seen brok...
