Re: New Burningman Ticket Process - 2012

So many knee jerk reactions, eplaya never ceases to amaze me. If you really want to go to burning man at this point in the year and buy your tickets early, you will go. If you are going to let this stop you, well, what can i say. Could/should there be some better system, of course, but you know what...

Re: I want to make a mutant vehicle for BM

I was talking to cap'n ron about another group who did something that was OK, but it was COMPLETELY different then their original submition. Consequently, a decent art car was denied.

Re: Shade Structures: Shade Mesh vs. Poly Tarps? What say yo

I have used various mixes of tarps and shade fabric. I do love the complete blackout with the tarp, but after some scary windstorms, I now lean towards shade fabric. If you have a small setup or a nice support lattice/structure, tarps can be a great way to keep cool if ventilation is thought about a...
