i have one hard copy ticket with reciept for this years burn, circumstances have changed and I am not going to make it back this year, I am asking 500 because I got the ticket through a theme camp (through the direct distribution to camps) and I had to pay my camp fees of $150 to qualify for the ticket, these fees are non refundable so I am out $410 plus $150 for a total of $560 so even at $500 I am losing some money. email if you are interested, would prefer to handle this in person in san francisco, mission district..


Selling Direct Distributed tickets above face value?

May I please have some trouble?

Damn stupid of the camp. For the sake of that $150 they could be in real trouble with the llc. You're not supposed to be sellign that outside the camp. Or does that $500 include the slot in the camp.

Seems to me to be the ideal solution for someone in need of both a ticket and having to be in a theme camp. I must admit, $150 seems a bit steep, but maybe not depending on what they provide. Now any self-respecting theme camp wouldn't just take anybody (hell, I've been trying to hook up with one for years and look how miserably I've failed) but you seem like such a prize, who wouldn't want you in their camp?

I'd praise Fido for leaving the other one alone. Good Boy!!!


Dog ate the one with no staple holes. Not even a dog would stoop to the level of touching a previously stapled ticket

Hello! I have two tickets to this year's Burning Man that I would like to sell. If you've been on top of things,you know this year's theme: Fertility 2.0.

Well,I guess my body took this as a sign,because my fiance and I just found out I'm pregnant!!!!!! :D I was told when I was 15 that,due to an ovarian cyst and a unique case of appendicitis,the chances for me to conceive were slim to none. Look at me now though! It's still early in my pregnancy,and I'm not due until sometime in March,but we figure now isn't the time to be spending a whole lot of money. This wasn't exactly planned (but that doesn't mean we're not extremely happy!!!),so we really do not have a lot of money set aside for doctor's visits and baby items. If you are reading this and want to help out a new mommy-to-be, we would be forever grateful!!!!!

Please email me if you would like to buy our tickets. They are $750 each. :) Thanks!!!

I liked this one on that auction site. Dress your ticket up in a faux fur coat and charge over 2x the face!!! No bids on this overpriced ticket. Scalpers are nail biting now! (Not sure if posting pic of tix is legit, sorry moderators if so).....

When a guy says "firm" all I can ask is, how many chemicals did you take to achieve that.

Do the scampers think the price goes UP as we get closer to the event? Dumbasses. At this point not flagging them might be better-then they get stuck with them rather than turning them in for a refund if cancelled.

I've just removed a number of posts from this thread. You can talk about 'best of the bull' in general terms, but please do not link to or name other sites, or specific prices. Even if your intention is to express shock or outrage, we do not want to give these guys any more page views than they already have. You may not use ePlaya to coordinate attacks or harassment of ticket sellers.
