Playa-dippity

So many unexplainable things happen in BRC and it's called playa-dippity. A few years back, we picked up a random woman walking out in the deep playa and gave her a lift on our camp art car. She was trying desperately to find a friend of hers. Her friend was from Atlanta and she told me her name. By...

Did they pull it out yet? that's what she said

Looks like rain on the playa this Thursday, otherwise known as welding an aircraft to a desert.
I've seen one post of FB that the plane is on private property.
I wonder if anyone has a first or secondhand update on the 747 extraction status.

Re: After action report from One Wheelers on the Playa?

So here's a question; is it 5 mph for EVERYONE on a motorized vehicle? I see org people tearing around all the time in carts whether on open playa or city streets, and when you yell at them to slow down they give a fuck off stare and go faster. Are they exempt or just doing it because they can? I s...

Re: Dealing with cops

Depending on what you were charged with, it's sometimes cheaper to pay the fine (stupid tax), than to hire a lawyer to fight it. In most cases, I think that's what law enforcement is counting on. They would really rather just get the money mailed to them rather than having to go to court to defend w...

Re: Biggest MOOP in the history of Burning Man

I’ll throw a piece of meat to the haters: the 747 did get one piece of special treatment. It was powered by a fully visible and non-mutated tug truck. You’re not supposed to be allowed to bring a non-self-powered MV and pull it around with a non-mutated truck. It didn't move around the playa once i...

Re: North Pole 30 ft Shade Canopy - seek center pole

Just by eye, that center pole appears to be about 8 to 9 feet tall. The first thing I would recommend is to set up the tent and figure out exactly how tall that pole needs to be. It will take two people to measure this. At a home improvement store such as Home Depot or Lowes, you need to get innovat...

Re: Perimeter Goons

It's the 2-way radios. Once they are issued to a person on the playa, they get "mall cop swagger". Check it for yourself. Radio=swagger.

Re: Mod abuse: Looks like I'm leaving?

There are so many instances where Burning Man would shatter someone's soul. Clearly we have that here.
Think of the shit ton of money you just saved.
There are resorts and festive theme parks that cater to a certain segment of the population. The paid staff can deal will needy guests.
