I'm explaining poorly. And I look at Trilo and think "what a nice answer to have made if something happens to this girl during a ticket purchase." So, I've never done this, and it might not be as safe as STEP, but with tickets being mailed out now, you might have to go with plan b, not-step.
I think What Trilobyte just meant to say that In general most people are good! And if I try to do things right, I'll more likely be pleasantly surprised than disappointed! And he is right, and I was expecting someone to tell me that I have no "History" either, but you got to agree I have a little more to loose being on the buying end If I am going to spend some hardly earned dollars and take some preciously saved vacation days, I would hope it would money/time well spent! In any case I am also in STEP, and I am getting even more optimistic, seeing more people posting sales here.
I saw one post for a ticket for a face to face sale in San Francisco and I would be willing to drive there, but I need two not one, so I will take a chance and maybe wait and find two separate or even better two tickets for sale at once closer to home, and I do agree I think being in Nevada will help my chances finding a ticket with so many burners being around, and ones who might come in with a ticket for sale from other places, I would be willing to drive almost anywhere in NV/CA for a good deal!
Thanks for all your replies, I'm getting even more excited to meet you all on the playa, I've been reading the forum for a while before registering, and I was a little intimidated at the beginning, but I already feel my inner flame growing more every day!
