Missed Burner Express sale

Post by cyan2102 » Thu Aug 17, 2017 11:04 am

I swear I was on top of everything but then I went to buy Burner Express tix today and realized I had missed the main sale. I will be sure to log on to try again on Saturday at noon, but aside from mass messaging my regional burner list and posting a request on the ride / resource sharing forum, I'm not sure what to do if something doesn't work out... any guidance, most wise fellow Burners?

Where you at.

Where you wanna round trip from/to.

When you wanna leave.

When you wanna return.

How much stuff you got.

Do you need to buy stuff in Reno.

Armed with that, go hustle, spread the word, meet new people etc.

Folks have been doing that for decades before there was bus tourism to the Playa.

Another option is to see if green tortoise has spots but they are a full-package-deal kind of thing.

Yeah, the lesson is not to wait until the last second - those tickets were readily available for months.

You have left yourself with very few options - do the work, wait and hope you're lucky in the thing on Saturday, hustle and find a rideshare, find a vehicle pass and then book a rental (more expensive), or book a flight (more expensive still, but probably pretty awesome).
