Re: TWO (2) TICKETS TO BURNING MAN 2011 RITES OF PASSAGE NR - $500 Hello again! Yes I am interested. However, Ive never heard of world air courier and when I google it, nothing comes up..maybe Im doing it wrong? I can be in vegas tomorrow with cash and we can do a face to face transaction. Or is this not a possibility?
And if we do it this way we can give a little extra $$. And you have our condolences for you what you and your father are going through, I hope everything works out for the best...

Cheers
Lemme know
Lucas

I say, if it smells fishy, it probably tastes fishy too. Trust your gut.
