Two bearded men from Sweden lost in Las Vegas.

Post by ap » Thu Jul 15, 2010 3:34 am

After years of sitting at home wanting to go we finally got ourselves some tickets, including a flight to Vegas, thinking "Nevada can't be that big, huh?" That now seem like a slight miscalculation.

I guess my question is this: Do any of you people pass through Vegas on your way to BM and have space for the two of us, two backpacks, water and alcohol enough for two people? We'll pay you, of course. And speak with a funny accent.

Tips on burner friendly car rental agencies in Vegas or close by could also be helpful, as well as tips on just about anything that could be of assistance.

Kudos / Bearded men from Sweden.

Yeah, I guess if you're from Sweden you might not know... it's a pretty fair way from Vegas to BRC. Check Rideshare. I think it's up now. And I thought some guys a while ago had the right idea on a rental. Tell them you're going to the gay rodeo in Reno. Probably stop the questions. Same mileage and then spotlessly clean the car. I'm sure you've read and reread the various guides on the BM site, but remember, there is a test. On the playa.

Welcome.

And do the Swedish boys still take the ferry to Copenhagen so they can drink at Tivoli Gardens?

See you in the dust...

I know of an Irish lass that is going through Vegas.

Check out her post here

Maybe you guys can work out some kind of arrangement, the whole EU thing.

Gawd knows we can use more bearded men at Burning Man.

I couldn't agree more. It is shorter right now, summer cut. We need to dye it Fabulous Red.

I am not a bearded man but I am beard-curious. Can you suggest any camps for these kind of folk?

I clicked on this thread hoping there would be a punchline for the title.
We have an obligation to make space for everyone, we have no obligation to make that space pleasant.

Then I realized that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me
