If I were king (which I'm not)...

Keep presale, general, OMG, low income, directed and vehicle pass quantities the same. Maintain STEP.

Presale $900+81 tax limit 4, ability to buy 2 VP (Hey, why not $1000)
General, OMG 410+36.90 tax limit 2, ability to buy 1 VP
DGS $410+36.90 tax ability to buy 1 VP per 2 tickets
Low income $200+18 tax same VP setup as last year.

Adjust tax portion up if delivery and ticketing fees are taxed.

Raise vehicle pass price to $150 to discourage hoarding and encourage Burner Express. VP is not taxed.

Keep Green Tortoise in the DGS.

Expand/encourage container services. Work toward an MV taxi service between bus depot and camps. Hope the expanded BRC airport system works out.

The above proposal "we tried to keep costs down, not screw the 98%, maintained arrival/exodus waits and traffic in preparation for a new population cap in 2017."

No matter what they do, people will not be happy, and the meh crowd will poop.

We have only been one time (2014).

Our entry was delayed for one day due to the rain.

We spent it at Pyramid Lake with many others who shared in our great unplanned fortune.

As first time burners with a cute (upon reflection) sense of urgency we opted for the "presale" tickets and were happy (of course foolish to some) to do so. We had an incredible experience and our life course was altered a bit ... sort of nudged in a small way that will end up having a much larger than expected impact.

We "skipped" last year. It hurt. It was hard. It was the right thing to do.

We will come home ... as "they" say ... this year. That much I know.

The price?

We know just about nothing, but more than enough to know that it will be more than it should be and less than what I would pay ... sigh.

I'm fucked. I've caught the dusty virus and I want to spread it around.

Cheers!

No one you passed holding a sign on the side of the road looking for a "miracle" ticket thinks you were foolish.

Eager first timer checking in. Assuming the pre-sale tickets are around the same price, I'll shamelessly go for it.

the price will remain the same.

however, to make things more interesting, you have to find the one and only vendor in the secret location.


good luck, and see you at the burn.
