JTowne, if you fight at Thunderdome, watch people do it for a while before you enter & fight. It's easy for people to faceplant when they're first released (fighters are attached to bungee cords and pulled away from one another at the outset, and then sort of . . . shot at each other). Saw a guy break his nose the first time I was there. Made a note. "Get legs underneath you". :lol:

Oh so it's like a legitimate brawl? Or is it more like, whoever falls down first... gives up first, or ...bleeds first haha. All of my guy friends have forever been larger than me so I consider myself a professional scrapper. I don't mind a little bit of pain :twisted:

From what I can tell, watching Thunderdome fights for four burns, is that you are judged the winner. Sometimes the crowd disagrees.

Um, don't forget it is a 2 hr ambulance ride to the nearest hospital (which I suspect would SUCK).

Well, it's not quite a brawl (though it may look like one). You can bring your own opponent--in fact, this is probably for the best. The bats are padded, but you can still get hurt. There's a large crowd, referee/MC, and a couple of people to pull back on the bungee cords of each fighter. There are also medics.

I have noticed that the Thunderdome medic shifts seem to be snapped up before other medical shifts. :lol:

The best fight I ever saw was between 20-something identical twins. They had about 25 years of history between them to really give it verve, and went at it like wolverines (though I'm pretty sure they were also laughing).

Eastern actually, bout 40 minutes north of Boston :)
I loved American Gladiators as a kid and as a lover of sky diving and similar adrenaline inducing activities this kind of thing is in my ballpark.
If I can I'll have a friend video tape it/take pictures, but I will without a doubt let you know how I end up, if for whatever reason I don't get to actually meet with you all there at some point over the 7 days.

I miss the North East. I went to college in Newton, grew up in Connecticut, dad lived in Maine for a bit. I moved to Brooklyn then for some fucking stoopit reason, to Texas.

It will be rad to run into a Yankee, after being surrounded by dumb rednecks here.

Hahaha, see from where I am the "Yankees" are the evil empire of sports teams. We're more apt to get into fights with anyone considered a "Yankee fan" lol. But it will be nice to get away from the anal and impersonal feeling of this area and meet people who are more sociable.

@JTowne, be sure to check out the airport, sky dive camp is there and you can draw straws for ride-a-longs, gotta have 100 jumps before you can do any jumping onto the playa though, ultralites maybe you can tandem I heard...very cool to see all the sky divers landing most of the day, all day at BM...not your average party!

@Super Evil Brian, I'm from NYC/Conn, then to L.A. Ca....buuut, Texas, ouch! You might want to bring everything you own, save you a double trip after you decide to move to the region, lol

Barbie Death Camp, Dr Pyro has an annual eplaya meet n greet, Thursday eve at 6 PM....BRC is HUGE! miles and miles of streets...this would be the one place and time to try to meet most eplayans...bring some booze or mixer or wine if ya can

Easy there tiger. This Yankee fan would be glad to enter the dome to sort out our allegiances. :lol: The weight class issue could be a hinderance as I am an over 6' 200lb street fightin man.

Out of everywhere I have been, I have never seen state/city pride like us New Yorkers have. Texas being a close second. I have lived here my whole life and love/hate it enough to want to stay.

Yup, New York is the heart beat of the world. I grew up in NYC, Manhattan.
When it was affordable, WoW! what a place...

I get the feeling Super Evil Brian might be the sort to relocate after burning man, hmmm let's see Reno or California over Texas? I know which I'd choose and it doesn't start with a T,
unless it means Time to get West coast-ized, an awesome right of passage

Austin is one of the hippest, most over-educated areas in the country.

He's in San Antonio surrounded by military bases. It's not the friendliest environment for 'thinking outside of the box' or differently than the Stars and Stripes magazine.

Hiya gyre!

Maybe,,,, I can't tell you how many out of state freinds who've said "I'm staying out West" lol

I have no clue what SE Brian wants btw, lol, but if itchin' for a better part of the usa, we're it! There are still some affordable okay places to live out here, if you don't mind sharing a place to cut down on costs. It's called the hidden homeless. I qualify big time, I have so many housemates, it isn't funny anymore.

Oh, this is the douche bag award thread...hmmmm, I don't have any more, other than the gal pissing next to our unlocked potty, lol, poor thing, maybe she was ascared of the ol' outhouse :roll: it seemed to be holding her up, haha

And yet I seem to meet interesting people everywhere I go, including San Antonio.
Even Brooklyn.

Ahaha! Naw it's alright, I let the sports teams dish it out on the field. I find that getting into arguments over sports is about as engaging as slamming my face against a brick wall and expecting some kind of positive response.

I've never been in NY city, but I plan to take a trip to Harlem this summer before I head to BM.

Anyone over 150 I'd rather just admit defeat and have a beer with 'em :D

I was only kidding with you about the sports stuff. I am a Yankee fan since birth and I love the rivalry with the Sox. I would much rather hang out with a Sox fan and have a good time than fight about it.

Everyone should go to NYC at least once. I lived there for a while and had the time of my life. Now I am upstate where it is affordable but still within a 2.5 hr drive to the city.

Heading to Harlem? Like Jamaican food? I know a good spot.

Live Trap/Playa Gift Exchange Date Rape Box

Best new theme camp...


(In the creeper voice characterization I love to use) I gots me this van, it's flat black with some nice paneling inside. I found me a good mattress on the side of the interstate when I got out to drain my vain.

My van has a "free candy" sign and I like to crank Jefferson Airplane on my hi-fi 8 track.

Hey, baby, where's yo momma, wanna go for a ride? I'll pick you up from school.


Swap out the "candy" for "gin" and crank Jefferson Starship and you've got a deal. Bonus points if you're wearing a top hat.

We don't do pickups, but if you have the package shipped to us we can load it on the bus. I'll have to calculate the shipping fees and get back to you.

I have to say, my partner and I do at least two ice shifts, usually at the one at center camp, and sometimes the line people do get way carried away on that. I try to mitigate as much as possible, but it's hard from behind the registers.

When we go to get ice ourselves, we always take an ice cold six pack with us and just walk in the out door and right up to the counter--it's as good as a VIP pass.

But, it's rather ballsy of them asking for schwag considering that volunteering for ice is one of the best jobs on the playa--it's cool inside with the ice and you get great tips without even having to ask.
