From reno cl

Warning to burners looking for tickets in Reno!!! - $1
Just a warning to all those burners who, like myself, are still looking for a ticket:

BEWARE of a "seller" who is asking to meet at the Grand Sierra Resort and Casino or Baldini's. He is trying to ROB and THREATEN you. He showed up with no ticket and his hand under a hoodie, as if he had a weapon. Asked to see the money and said we would have to get in his car and go to his house to get the ticket.

He is a 20-something black male in a white camaro.

Thank you so much for posting!
I almost met up with this person at GSR.
Would've been alone and pregnant. Will try to stay calm and have faith that we will all make it home this year.
Best wishes to you for a phenomenal Burn!

Glad it helped.

To be clear, I'm not looking for a ticket.
I found the posts on reno cl and thought they might be useful.

The 'public places' is a reference to the fact that cl says meet in public places.
Robbers have no problem with that though.
You need more than that to be safe.
Talk with people.
See if they know about burning man.
Do they make sense?

Personally I feel much safer when I meet in a home.
If you can't do that, be wary.
Try to meet where it isn't easy to leave, inside a business.
Carry your gun.

I am informed the Melting Pot is re-distributing tickets.
Good option.

But, as I posted earlier, I really did go into a remote country road with two strangers in the middle of the night to buy a black trailer.
So why listen to me?
