2011 will be my 11th year, started in '09, but missed 2 yrs in early 2000. I have camped with Gypsy Witch Camp for 5 or 6 yrs, this year. A great group of seasoned burners who welcome lone travelers, virgins, and unsures to our camp, as long as there is respect and isnt any hard drugs or violence IN our camp. I camp with them for this reason.
It is a spiritual place for me and love how we are accepted, loved, share without expectations. I have broke ribs, dislocated a knee, twisted an ankle or 2 or 3, bit the dust, and still go on. I have met friends from all over the world, dust storms are a great time to also do this (and yell yeeehaawww!). I didn't go with expectations then, nor do I now.
I make 'moop' bags from material and pass them out. These are for moop, cameras, water, chapstick, other gifts..whatever you like. I have made necklaces, kahluha, salsa too, all to share and gift. Photography is a side hobby and this is a great place to do it.
Welcome one and all, please be safe and love one another..! Ms Kitty'11
Hi Ms Kitty! Welcome to the board . . .

I love it that you make bags for people; it's a great present. A lot of people forget to bring them. And a bag increases the likelihood that someone with a (clear) baggie full of wipes will actually exit the portapotty with with said baggie politely concealed, rather than stuff it down the john in embarrassment. I think most of the bathroom offenders are more embarrassed rather than simply unable to read signs.

As I've said before, I've lurked this board for years for tips and advice. The "tickepocalypse" was simply the catalyst to get me to start an account and open my loud mouth.

Haha, I have read it, I suspect my boyfriend has as well since he tends to obsessively research things like I do, and I do expect we'll either come out of this event in flame or at a new level of coupleyness, from which we will progenate many totally awesome projects.

It is not a playa name, although it does have that ring to it. It is not because of terrible foot fungus either, thankfully. I don't really wear shoes or walk around barefoot in gym showers enough to contract anything truly horrible. It's from hiking around at the beach with lots of stinky, seaweed infested water pools and streams. I think you can figure out the rest. :D

I've been reading 'The Tribes of Burning Man' and I'm at the part where they debate whether it's the art of the community that keeps the event together. Well for me, I don't think I would bother to go if it weren't for the community, the gift economy and the fact that the whole thing takes place in what look like some kind of beautiful extraterrestrial landscape. If you can tell that I read a lot of Robinson and Delaney then you probably need to get out more. I know I do.

I think there's something inherently wrong with using the word apocalypse with regards to tickets. It's Burning Man, it's already an apocalypse! I've been using either Ticket Mayhem, or Ticket Madness (said like the Ren character from the Ren & Stimpy cartoon would say "space madness!"). :D

Hi Audio Sam Ego! Welcome to the board . . .

If you're truly a speed demon, be really careful the closer you get to Black Rock City. Local law enforcement is quite serious about the posted limits (25mph in Gerlach) . . . and if you get a speeding ticket on tribal land, they will expect you to post the fine immediately. Note that highway 447 and 34 are pretty common places for accidents on the way in. 447 is very twisty, and features cows. :) Page 16 of the printed version of the 2010 Survival Guide has more info. The 2011 guide . . . well, should be available any day now.

http://www.burningman.com/preparation/e ... index.html

I don't know if you'll need any reinforcement out there after 6 years, but a lot of people Burn Sober, & there are resources available.

I believe associated the "apocalypse" term to the Ticket Mayhem, is not so much to say that there actually was any sort of "apocalypse" as much to make social commentary on the situation.
Always when people believe there is any sort o Apocalypse coming they act foolish. Couple of examples, Y2K, earlier this year, 2012 Mayan calendar.
Is there any sort of Apocalypse, no. Do people act foolish and crazy as if the world were coming to an end, yes.
People rushed out and paid astronomical prices for tickets, similarly to how people rush out and pay astronomical prices for bull shit, when there is "Impending doom".
But Ticket Fiasco, Ticket Madness, and such are more literally accurate descriptions, but the connotation that comes with an "apocalypse" is what drives Tickepocalypse.

Having just finished a book on the cultural weight that St. John's Apocalypse has, and how it still affects us, I cannot but help but feel that we have this idea of impending doom (that might lead to a paradise on earth) that we snapped the whole ticket trauma into, making our dealing with it less rational, and more hysteria-generating than it actually is.
I've wondered if I should start a broader discussion about the event and apocalyptic (or apokaliptik) thinking.

I think that might prove interesting.

I do think most of humanity has a default Doom! DOOM! chip built in, which evolved for a reason or two.

O yeah, I agree 100%. There was no ticket apocalypse, just good old fashioned high demand- low supply. But people freaked out! Why else would you pay 10 grand for 2 tickets.
I think that it would be a little early to start another thread about the ticket fiasco. A bunch of folks would chime in restating the obvious that all that really happened was "high demand- low supply". Or it would turn into another "I hate ticket moochers thread"
Though, I believe that when we all get back to defaltia, and all the ticket hype is long gone, would be a great time to look back and analyze/discuss the "apocalypse" mentality that turned it into a shit show.

Unless you meant start a thread about "Apocalyptic" events in general. In which case its never too late, cause we all know the world is gonna end next year. :wink:

I think the reason I tend to associate Burning Man with the apocalyptic is that it has the look and feel of some of my favorite post-apocalyptic films (such as Mad Max/Road Warrior, etc). Where DIY meets state of the art in design, tech, and of course art. To me, it feels like the party at the end of the universe. In fairness, though, I consider myself to be pro-apocalypse. Regardless of when it happens or how and what exactly goes down (the word actually translates to 'revelation' - so it could just be some kind of major shift), but I'm curious to see how it unfolds. :)

WEll, after reading this book, I have to say that it's completely possible that Mad Max is a manifestation of the way that the idea of the apocalypse perpetuates itself in our minds. I suppose "meme" is a good description.

Hello my name is PeteyBee and I am from the little town of North Bend in the beautiful Cascade foothills of wonderous Washington State. I work in medical imaging for a living and while this job is somewhat "techie" and "clinical" I prefer to be in nature and feel a strong connection to the earth and all its wonderous and eternal cyclical power. I am turning my home into a huge flower and herb garden and would love to be able to grow hemp for its incredible versatility and medicinal qualities just like the earlier Americans however I am justifiably paranoid of the insane federal domestic drug policies so I will abstain from that activity out of respect for both my freedom and the integrity of my anal sphincter muscle and sigmoid. But I digress: does anyone have any tix for sale to BM? I need 2. Peaceout!

Hi Peteybee, welcome to the board. You need the 2011 Tickets forum.
http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewforum.php?f=190

and this:

!!READ ME!! Find 'Tickets Offered' Threads!
http://eplaya.burningman.org/viewtopic. ... 90&t=42348

There are other threads about How Not to Get Scammed. Read them. :)

Sellers don't check this forum; they have all the email and private messages they can handle, and don't have time. Don't forget to tell all your friends you're looking, and keep at it. Best of luck.

WOW, thats stupid that you got a ticket for speeding less than 10mph, but thats awesome that he gave a you shirt that said Sober Driver!

But it makes ya think. How fucked up are things, where instead of punishing people for driving intoxicated, we're rewarding people for not breaking the law.
