2017 BxB & BxA up moderately

The Org has a new Afterburn format. Many of us like the detailed pre-2014 format and this is going back in that direction. https://journal.burningman.org/2017afterburn/

In 2016 the borg reported BxA at about 2400. They now sum in and out to 5800 in 2017, or about 2800 net round trips. BxB in 2017 is reported at 12000+ or about 6000 round trips. I thought the number would be larger. That's still 3000-4500 vehicle passes less congestion on the roads and will no doubt give us a new magic number for future population caps.
