. But when I think about this experience, I don't want this to be like going to Coachella where the Sierra Tent is always what it is, year after year
Each year I see/experience a fraction of the amazing art/camps/venues that burners build for all of us. Later in the year, as I view pictures of the last BRC, I think "holy crap" where was that incredible art/structure/MV and how did I miss it?!! Even if every large camp returns, the city is different every year. I love the first day that I hop on my bike and see Opulent Temple, Thunderdome, Root Society, and other large venues that have returned. To me, it feels more like home to have some familiar sights. It would be sad to roll down the street and not see all of those Barbie Dolls (thanks Doc Pyro). Part of the reason for my post was to encourage Birgins with tickets to step up and help these camps return.
No worries. There is always many, many new and amazing experiences. Enthusiastic burgins will help reinvent the city and may even help the established camps with their desire to be more amazing than the previous year. It does take the veterans to provide the time-tested experience of what works and what does not. I believe they are the backbone of the city. I really hope that the BMorg finds a way to assure that a sufficient number of core members of the large camps find tickets. But it also takes all of you amazing Burgins and newer Burners to pump new ideas and enthusiasm into the system.
The frustration you are reading on eplaya is a reflection of the heart, soul, blood, sweat, and tears of veterans that are seeing all that they have worked for swept away with a bad decision by the ticket organizers. However, I have no doubt that these amazing people will regroup and again build the city that I love!!
