Fast Pass???

Postby dwonj » Sat Aug 11, 2012 4:37 am

I randomly see on various posts the topic of a "Fast Pass" for Exodus. Does such a thing really exist or is it a Burning Man (urban) Legend?

Hand out drugs to police cars. With a bit of luck, you'll get a free ride through the fast lane to the nearest jail.

No such thing. Gotta get in line like everyone else.

If you want to meet some of the nice men and woman in uniform, sure, try to leave by point 1. Maybe when they are searching your vehicle you will earn a chance to wear those neat metal wrist bands and get a free ride too.

There is an exclusion zone around BRC. If you are outside the city and not on Gate Road you are trespassing. If you are lucky you will talk to Perimeter staff and get an escort to where you need to be. If you give attitude or are simply unlucky, you will have an encounter with the BLM Rangers - get a trespassing ticket, and all the assorted benefits of a LE encounter.

You would expect that an event would have a special gate for law enforcement, emergency vehicles, portapotty pumpers. No way no how would you have access. What you really want to do is fly in and out in a private plane with essentially zero luggage. There is even a commercial charter company if you don't have your own plane and know how to fly at altitude and land at an itinerant airstrip.

Many of the contributors to eplaya are very experienced. But we can be snarky when virgins ask these type of questions. Enjoy your exodus!

I thought you bought the Exodus Fast Pass from the machine at Center Camp Cafe, right next to the ATM?

It's not a Fast Pass, but rather they make all the lanes "Fast Pass Lanes" at 10AM on Sunday, the day of the Temple burn. Only 15 minutes wait and you're out. They then reopen the Fast Pass Lanes on Tuesday after the burn.

If you want a fast exit, do it when no one else is trying to leave. Simple :shock:

Sunday morning, if you can get you car moving by 7:30am, you will drive right out with virtually no wait.
If the weather is violent and dusty, it will help to clear the city early and ease the crowds later in the week.

And, it is only a few hundred feet from the law enforcement compound. (Driving out of BRC through point 1 is trespassing.) Only needed LE once in 4 years at point 1, only took 1 minute and 3 LE vehicles responded.

I once flew along and then into the little airport out at the tip where you land after passing over the scrub-bush/swamp. They do build well there. You could barely see the tunnel entrance/exit. They put the subway in after I was last there, but I expect they've built the stations to the same hidden-from-plain-sight standards?

FAIR USE

the person who made the point one image that is in the background of my photograph did not expose it correctly, also, i think the composition is a bit boring.

you can see the error of their ways for yourself by visiting this website:

i guess the ugly logo for yer biz in the corner isnt enough attribution ?

perhaps this fair use parody which attributes it to the owner is good enough?

Any copyright holder of an image can ask for it to be removed from this site, they just need to prove it is indeed their image. This was done via PM, and the images were (and will continue to be) removed. We've also removed all links to the sites (and will remove any posted in the future) so as to make it difficult for anyone to access them from here & possibly repost them without permission.

The TOS protects the copyright holder, and as a photographer I have no problem enforcing it if asked to.

a description of where the material that you claim is infringing is located on the ePlaya;
