Re: Be proactive in a seller's market

Ticket seekers, In case the seller wishes to sell via PayPal; be ready to close the deal. I suggest that (if you have not already done so) I suggest that you open a personal PayPal account -- Now. I have heard (and I am not sure if it is correct) but PayPal might offer some type of security against...

Re: 2015 Burning Man Box Office Info

Well maybe art project EAs are different than theme camps EAs (I doubt it) but there are no names on these. The bar code is connected to the camp/project but that is it.

Re: Anybody successfully rent a truck from Reno in 2013-4?

Well we reserved early March and the price difference was staggering. I have kept the Budget reservation just in case U-Haul comes to their senses.

Re: Anybody successfully rent a truck from Reno in 2013-4?

We have rented from Budget for years. Not this year though. Budget is charging roughly 3x the price U-Haul is charging for the same size truck. Important to remember that Budget,at least since 2004,has been the only place in Reno you could rent a truck for The Project. Finally now we have some compe...

Not a surprise considering the stakes of getting there first. Of course various mods will let you know it does not matter anyway. Nobody looks at the WWW Guide. Camps that put on scheduled events know better though. Thus a crash.

Re: The Loneliest Road to BRC

Have driven that road many times. Main advantage,besides being a shorter route from most destinations south east of it, is the virtual lack of speed limit on the open stretches. A moot point if you are driving a typical Burner rig I suppose. If unsure about vehicle reliability 1-80 is the way to go....

Re: Burner Friendly RV parks in Reno?

If this is considered advertising it can be blocked.

Good news for east coast Burners and those coming from Europe. Jet Blue recently announced non-stop service from JFK to Reno Tahoe International.One daily flight so may want to look into those Labor Day reservations now.

Re: "Directed Group Sale" and theme camp applicants

They usually give you a week to ten days to get your core members lined up and ready before the sale begins. My guess would be to look for it the last week of January.
