Re: New burner looking at 2018. Tons of questions.

Best place to hookup with people that want rides? I think the RV holds like 7 ppl and it will be just me driving from seattle to BRC. There are a few Seattle burners on here. Can you tow a boat? :D Seriously, you and your wife might connect with https://regionals.burningman.org/regionals/north-amer...

Re: Burning man rookie

Hi Amichelle ! :D Camps are optional. And finding an RV share situation--within a camp that's actually suitable--is not the simplest endeavor. I recommend deciding which is more important to you, a camp or an RV share, and getting that first . . . . After a ticket, 'cause camp dues are almost always...

Re: New burner looking at 2018. Tons of questions.

Why is your wife flying in? It’s not that far from Seattle. Her logistics are going to suck a lot more than if she rides in with you. She’ll have to get from Reno to BRC on the burner bus then walk and find your camp... why the hell do all that. I think there are some direct flights from Reno; I ju...

Re: Coming from UK need tent suggestions

Canvas tents may be nice, but I've never worked with anything but nylon tents. I have had great luck with tents from Sportsman's Guide, but I used cheap offbrand domes for my 4 burns. Whatever you decide, get a tent whose mesh zips entirely shut in all places including the top (if it has a mesh top,...

PacoAleman , google the Green Tortoise hostel.

it is common for bikes to be "borrowed without permission" ....because many think if you didn't lock it you gave them permission.... eye of the beholder thing Yes.
