Re: Bringing Reluctant People to Burning Man

If they are not 100% committed to take the ups and downs of BM it will just end up a miserable experience for the both of you. EDIT: While the above is true, if this is for your wedding then the aches and pains of BM might be just fine for him. Any other occasion and I'd say leave him home but for t...

Re: Where are the Burning Man hippies??

What we do know from this, which we already did know, is that there are LEO out there, uniformed and undercover, and that they will come down on you with as much force to bear as they can (and it is apparently quite a bit) if they need/want to. For me, I am glad this is the case. We should all, for...

Re: Where the fuck does this go?

Ratty, I think you're absolutely right. Totally spot on. To go to Burning Man on the cheap is expensive as it is. If somebody is so poor that they need a "low income ticket" maybe they should think about getting their financial house in order before partying in the desert. This kind of follows unde...

Oh, well, I thought it might be worth trying, if they are trying to avoid hundreds of redundant e-mails from all the individuals like me trying to find out. :-) Anybody want to drop them a hint? Or is that sort of info posted anywhere on the main BurningMan.org website? What kind of hint? That you ...

Re: Status of department volunteer acceptance?

I believe it's department specific. But, to the best of my knowledge, most are just gearing up to start taking volunteers. Our department, an offshoot of DPW, staffed the ranks back in February. This is a unique group though. Contact department leads to see what their timeline is for this year. Good...

Re: Suggestions for an automatic personal misting system?

This is interesting. It was not really what I had in mind but if I suspend it from the room and have it blowing humidity right into my face, it could work. I already have many portable usb battery packs to power it, I would just need a simple timer between the humidifier and the battery to regulate...

This would work, though I am not yet familiar with the programing aspect. I was hoping to find a product that already exists for $30 or so. I am surprised to be having this kind of difficulty though, but I am now trying to think of ways I can take one of those bathroom fragrance misters and put a w...

The roads are OVER-CAPACITY from a week prior to the event to a week after the event. My point still stands.

Sold to the public, yes. Plus the VPs that go to staff. Plus the vehicles that don't require one (think LEO). Plus the non-BM traffic. 50K is about right.

Re: Suggestions for an automatic personal misting system?

Instead of looking for a product to buy why not build something? A misting system would be extremely easy to build from inexpensive parts.
