As it IS a flying fuck, it will NOT be driving on the playa, but levitating above the playa.

It will be towed to the event by a twenty clockwork mule team.

The mules will also only have three legs apiece to stay in compliance with NV. laws!!! 8)

Damn dude, if you want to "commemorate" yourself in this selfless grand act, why stop at a professional photo shoot?

You should commission a painting to capture the sheer magnificence of your epic journey for all to marvel upon. It could be in the style of "George Washington Crossing the Delaware" or Napoleon leading the charge atop a rearing white stallion. Something that matches the magnitude of your achievement.

Or hell, why not have a bronze statue made, honoring your great deeds on the playa? There could be a plaque detailing the camps you deigned to set foot inside, the art pieces you cast your gaze upon, all the things you saw but they missed out on. Your grandchildren can then marvel at your feats with mouths agape and tears streaming down their faces.

Because that's what it's all about man. Photos to impress your kids!

I've got it! Burn on a Princess cruise ship. They clean up the mess in a matter of hours between sailings.

I can get as much time off as I like. I'll work straight through but I'm not taking the carport down.

By the looks of the tickets offered boards, they didn't make any regular priced tickets this year. Just these darn overpriced hedge-bet tickets that people are trying to unload after finding friendlier options for themselves and their entourage

Clearly what we're dealing with are some very savvy, shifty, self-starters. An advanced breed of sheisty, forward-thinking burners.

So you were able to afford presale tix or you wouldn't of bought them, right? But you went ahead in the main sale because who doesn't want to save a buck or two. You were lucky to beat out others in the main sale. Other people that can't afford presale so they didn't have that option. Now you're putting up your presale tix...
