Alright...I would think that an online forum composed of a community of people who are supposed to be 100% about peace, community, love, and respect... (or is that unity?) would...well...be a little more chill! I've checked ePlaya, Chase, GMail, and Facebook an EMBARRASSING number of times in the last 4 days. I'm planning every moment in my head or on my computer, e-mailing...facebooking...calling every goddamn RV company in the US, this is to say: FREAKING OUT just as much as anyone here.

...but....

THE RESULTS HAVEN'T COME OUT YET.

None of them. Not yours, not theirs. The fact is, for every burner that got an extra ticket or two, I would imagine a HUGE percentage are planning on selling the extras to other burners. This doesn't lower our chances of getting tickets, it lowers the chances of scalpers getting them!

So here's a friendly reminder from a friendly stranger:

It's going to be okay. If you are here, complaining, or appreciating, or just reading, you obviously care. And if you care this much, YOU'RE GOING TO BE AT BURNING MAN THIS YEAR. It's expensive, we know this. We adapt. We will have the time of our lives. And many of us are going to feel rather silly for all of this madness. I believe all of those things to be facts. You should too. And if you've lost all faith, go hug a freaking puppy or find a rainbow or take some 5 HTP. It's going to be amazing :) I for one, can't wait.

Oy, I wish I had seen this thread before I posted the thread I had just posted.

Haha, don't mind the "closet hippies" kayalovelife. I think they're just scared they might quit their jobs and fall back into hippiedom. :lol:

And now Imma go look up 5 HTP. Oh and I have a Rotweiler puppy! Her name is Isis, she's badass. ((hugs)) :wink:
I'm the MAN in a truck, burner who is stuck, you're in luck! I'll whip out my BIG tow chain and not charge you, not even one lousy buck!

Oh great, this jerkwad just infected my brain with that idea. Now I have a new item on my bucket list, one that will likely end up with me in the hospital. Thanks, assclown!*

Da Mule rarely checks in, but he did leave us a lovely bar thread over in Open Discussion.
