I dunno, it's not exactly business hours in San Francisco where the BMOrg are... I guess that depends on whether STEP is entirely automated or if it has real humans making it happen. Does anyone know? Did anyone get a STEP notification at a time that would be crazy o'clock on the west coast?

My buddy went camping over the 4th and got his ticket offer. It was going to go to a friend so whatever. Radical SELF reliance, right? If you cant be bothered to get your own ticket, its not on me to get you one.

I got a ticket, SCREAM!!! But it wasn't through STEP.
When I registered I had the notice saying I was Signed up for STEP around 12:20.
I have a friend that said they got signed up an hour after it opened. They got their tickets two weeks ago, but were not able to use one so sold it to me.

I'm only stating the facts as I know them. I'm not questioning the first come thing, just saying what I saw. Who knows what evil lurks in the minds of a Computer server?

But I"m going to Burning Man. Woo Hoooo

Please, don't do that. Plus, there's a good chance the BLM will take you off their land.

Who would remove a loney lost girl with puppy eyes??!!

Nah, in all seriousness, if STEP doesn't pull though I'm just hoping I meet the right people on my way there. I heard a few times now about people selling tickets for the right price in the week leading up to BM?

There have been in the past, but there is no way to know how many tickets there will be available this year in those last weeks - or how many people will be trying to get them. Please do not leave Reno without a ticket - the small towns along the way are buried, and the police will be removing people who are standing around with "tickets wanted signs" in Empire & Gerlach (and possibly ticketing as well). Tribal police will probably be doing the same in Nixon & Wadsworth.

Extra traffic on already burdened roads, and aimless people in already burdened communities, put the entire event at risk. Don't be one of those people.

Yeah, what he said.

And as some extra, woman-to-woman advice--get some skills beside manipulation with sex appeal. You'll need them in your 40s. And even in your twenties you'll like yourself better.

Yeah, the plan is that if I don't succeed to get a ticket I just keep driving and turn the trip into an epic roadtrip, so don't worry about that :) Thanks for the advise mate!

Ehhh, not sure where you get the idea from that I would have no skills besides manipulation sex appeal (unless you count puppy eyes as sex appeal, which makes me reconsider the looks my collie gives me everytime I eat an oreo... :P ) but I assure you, if I didnt find other skills by now I'd be well and truly off track. Good looks get you nowhere in the desert I live in I'm afraid. And besides, I like myself a lot, with or without the sex appeal. But thanks for the advice anyway, I'll make sure to pass it on to a lost sister somewhere, someday ;)

Good news: the OMG sale will get an extra 2,000 tickets for a total of 3,000. If STEP didn't work out for you (closing in 50 minutes), get in that OMG sale!

My GF applied for her LIT quite late, in early May. She received notification that she would receive an LIT about 3 weeks ago. This will be her first trip to BM.

Congrats to all those who received tickets through STEP! I know that there were many more who registered but were not successful, but the program is always 100% dependent on the number of tickets that get fed into it.

To those still looking, good luck in the OMG sale and the after-market!
