She was caught and I was picked up from my camp by perimeter - paid her ticket - and that was that.
Now there are no tickets for sale at the gate - and [*]ticketless people trying to enter are released to the default world - ok - that is what you risk - however
when that person is dumb enough to inform who helped him or her get the desert - and perimeter manages to track 'm down - their tickets are revoked and those folks are kicked out to - unannounced policy chance since ????
From the perimeter exodus crew's site :
"We look for stowaways. It costs a lot to run the infrastructure of a city of 50,000 and it’s unfair to those that support the city through their ticket purchase when free-loaders sneak in."
I have heard many a story about these supposed free loaders
- from a Paiute family I met on the playa - who came to pickup a teen daughter who managed to get in without a ticket and now come every year with the whole family -
- from a dear burner friend artist and contributor who every year manages to bring in a few sto-aways who help and built and return as paying customers as
they can -
and I for one hold no grudge against anyone being motivated to make it to our city - with or without ticket - I made beautiful friends at the fry bread stand in 2012 - Julio and Julia - 2 artist who came from Spain to come to the burn and did everything in their might to obtain tickets - without success and attempted to bring art and gifts the playa on Sunday, hours before the temple burn but were treated with contempt by perimeter .......
We CAN and DO provide - we are abundant and I see no reason to marginalize any - one for not having a ticket but wanting to come to BRC regardless...... to routinely revoke tickets of people who share this sentiment is FASCIST - to call anyone a free-loader just because they have no ticket is dumbass
- have we not all sneaked in a show - event - festie - concert at least once in our lives????
I would like to see this stupidity - arrogance - ridicule excludidness ended!
Perimeter is US and that is not how we roll.......................... OR?
