Re: Best thing you ever saw

One more, 2007 or 2008 I think, I guess this counts as an "art car" but it had no motor. It was a three story tall wooden structure, where on the second floor was basically a really decked out Middle Eastern themed lounge area. There was a woman standing at the rails dressed like some sort of princ...

Re: Is theft common?

I realize that anything is possible on the playa but there's clearly a strong bond between true burners and the spirit of BM. I imagine some people might get the urge to take something valuable (eyes of the beholder) whether out of impulse or desperation. The ultimate question is, if things do get ...

Re: The Bar 2017 Edition

I have a petty gripe. I flew in pre-event 2017 Friday to help with setup. Flew out Sunday. I drove back in on Wednesday of the event. The G&P guy made me cut all of the pre-event and flight bracelets. I handed them over to him, and he said I could keep them. I am guessing he just fucked with me, or...

Hey guys, I'm a Canadian, currently living in Calgary, and hoping to attend Burning Man this year! I was initially planning with a friend, but I dont think she can attend anymore. I can't let that stop me as I feel this is the year. I am starting a new job Monday and hoping for the best re: time of...

Re: Best thing you ever saw

Best thing I ever saw is an impossible decision. Best thing I saw in a single day might be easier.

But I have to say: the Friday sunset from the top of the Man's tower in 2008, right before they closed it for the rest of the week. It was a beautiful evening.

Emergency food/Camping food is always egregiously priced. I refuse to shell out for that--but I don't like cooking on the playa either. This is my favorite thread about quick, easy, normally priced food. Realistic non-cooler based menu planning https://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic.php?t=35430 The...
