I live in the Las Vegas area and have a will call ticket I paid $320 +$17.75= $337.75.
I have had a bit of a problem that might keep me from attending BM. I recently encountered ‘floaters’ in my right eye and on Tuesday, Aug. 23rd I went to the Nevada Retina Consultants here in Las Vegas for an examination. They told me I needed to immediately get the tear in my retina laser seared and since there was a bit of a detachment with liquid under the retina that they also recommended a shot of a bubble of gas into the eye. This bubble works to push the retina back in place. . And to make the bubble work its magic I must lay on my left side at least 16 hours a day (so they say) to put the bubble in the right area of the eye. As gas expands with a change in altitude I have been told not to fly or change altitude until the bubble is absorbed by the body. This, I am told, can take up to 2 or 2 ½ weeks. This is the reason for my possibility of a problem to attend Burning Man. All most always the optimistic fellow I immediately thought I would be the exception to the case and it would be healed and back in good order before my planned departure for BM on Monday, Aug. 29th. However, as the days have moved forward and I reluctantly lie on my left side, I am beginning to believe I might not be so lucky this time. I have another doctor’s appt. on Thursday, Aug. 25th to assess the situation. At that time I will make my decision. If the bubble has dissolved I am heading for BM but if not then it will be another year for such fun. My eyes are most important to me.
So, I want to make contact with someone that lives or will be coming thru the Las Vegas area on Thursday, Aug. 25th or Friday, Aug. 26th that will (1.) bring cash and (2.) I can show my e-mail ticket confirmation and we can together make the telephone call to the appropriate officials to transfer the will call ticket.
Please only reply if you can wait for an answer till late morning of Aug. 25th and only if you will be in or coming thru the Las Vegas area on the dates listed above.
PM me if this would work for you.
All the Best,
Fun Happy Guy (though a bit sad at the moment)
