BitterDan.... Very nice work! I was looking for a B&W vector piece of art that I was going to place in an oval shape similar as the shape found on a dollar bill.

"I have assorted BM bills"

Me too... the airplane bill, the mini van rental bill, the cost of the ticket bill....

But joking aside... anyone out there have any vector art of the Man?

Or any suggestions of where I should post a request for it?

Thanks!

I picked up at a rock, gem, mineral show a big bag of quartz crystal points... they were a big hit.... gave them out for several years. BUT when I ran out of them I swore that I'd never do that again... they were so heavy to carry around. Other years I picked up a bunch of beautiful glass beads and ...

"You actually bring your bike to the burn?"

Yea... my accordion weighs about 17 pounds... so I always throw it onto a basket on my bike... love to jam before and after the burn.

There once was a hungry Burner named Kinky.
Who picked playa boogers out of his nose with his pinky.
One day he pulled one out so big
it was the size of a giant fig!
So he ate it rather quickly.

As far as the dust and the RV... you might consider getting some plastic drop cloths and some fabric to throw over the plastic so you're comfortable. Bring a lot of duct tape to hold everything down. Also aluminum foil to cover the dash board and some other areas. Otherwise you might get hit with an...

There are several things to factor into your tent purchase. First... are you throwing it into a car and driving it to the playa? Or are you flying in. Driving gives you a lot more flexibility because you don't have a major weight issue to deal with and you can go with a bigger tent. I agree with Teo...

Hi Queue...

Welcome.

What instrument(s) do you play and what kind of art do you do?

I'm a musician/artist too and I've found that BM is the biggest playground!

For many years I've left around 10 am on Sunday and have found that to get off the playa it took me about 2.5 - 3 hours.

Then add in about another 2.5 hours to Reno.

Plus the hour you need before the plane leaves... you're looking at least 6 hours.

Hi another member of the tribe signing in.

As far as Israeli's on the playa... met many over the years. I think it was about 3 or 4 years ago I saw a giant inflatable "flying saucer" balloon with a giant star of David on it.

Also ran across a huge Shabbat service one year.

Hi! Rob the accordion man here... I'm an artist and as you can tell by my name, an accordion player.

If you hear an accordion on the playa this year... stop by and say hello!
