So who is still going?

Post by homo ardentum » Sat Apr 11, 2020 12:02 pm

Now that we know the BMORG is out of the loop, are there any radically self-reliant individuals ready to create their own MultiVerse this year?

Will the BLM close the playa as usual to keep an uncontrolled crowd from assembling?
Can we relive the old post Baker Beach days?

Can't beat a free retro-burn....uncluttered with no plug and play crapola. It can even be an unofficial fund raiser for the Mother BMORG. Let's work something out...with proper social distancing of course!

Who's in???

I've been daydreaming of the same thing.

We'd need to be extra careful about LNT

Nah, I don’t think so. How thrilled do you think the folks in Gerlach, Empire or Pyramid Lake Reservation going to feel about you all coming through our communities?
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

BLM would be extremely shortsighted if they don't do a hard closure. I would be shocked if that's the case. However, if it's not closed... I'll probably be there.

Absolutely not. Based on my geographical spot, the daily emails, the . . . the everything?

Nah.

I might try to do a national park in a few months. If it's open.

This is a good opportunity to do something else. Or at minimum, save a little money. I'm super glad I went last year, even if it wasn't my favorite Burn, by a long shot. There were some really amazing moments.

I’m glad you were there last year too. I’ll miss seeing your beautiful face. I’m on the saving a little money team this year.

In 2011 when the event sold out for the first time, there was talk of an overflow party on the adjacent Smoke Creek Desert.
That plan was shut down pretty quickly.

My fiance and I live in Eureka, CA - about five hours away. We're still planning to show up, though haven't decided if we're staying on the playa the whole week or exploring the area more. I'd love to coordinate with others going...

You should have a back-up plan. Maybe reservations in Reno? The roads may be closed. I'm guessing the playa will be closed to camping or even day visiting.
