You may send your ___________ to:

One year a fellow Ranger (Good Start) sent me a FULL package of DORITOS! They
made it intact! Last year I got 1 shoe..... go figure. I can hardly wait to see

No you do not need to be in BRC in order to send mail or packages. Send from anywhere in the US (or the world, though international delivery times might get dicey) using the following format:

Person Name c/o Camp Name
Burning Man street address, BURNING MAN FESTIVAL
BLACK ROCK CITY / GERLACH, NV 89412 U.S.A.

Make sure the label is legible/easy to read, and ideally the person/camp you're sending to has some kind of sign posted someplace.

As Ranger Beauty suggested, don't send it until after the 15th. When it gets to the playa, the unsung heroes at the BRC PO will do their best to deliver it.

:D

I am a philatelist who wants to be a playaphilatelist and therefore I need some "Playa Mail" from the BRC Postal System. So how do I send you something in order to get some great BRC or theme envelopes back? Since the USPS does not work well in conjunction with a no money economy and since I cannot get BRC postage stamps along with my groceries down at Smith's or Raleys, do I send pre stamped usps envelopes and a bribe, er, consumables, or do I send a whiny little note saying that I am from Nigeria and I collect money from foreign countries and paper and high value coins are my favorites? (and get a nasty letter back (stamped from the playa) telling me what to do with my request...)

I realize that poor planning on my part does not create an emergency on your part, but time is running out for this year so please let me know,

Make an offer to send out a surprise and ask them to send you some mail.
Who?
Anyone who's still on this board and wants to. Remind them they can write and stamp the letter out here, that it's the postmark you're interested in.

Sounds like a plan, I will be happy to send free "things" out to the BM InterNation if you will send me Playa Mail. I will even send a Self addressed stamped envelope for you creative types to have fun with. If you don't want the possible remnants from my lint trap or old safety deposit box, Please just send me a letter to "Recycled" Slim Sirnes' Art Truck, c/o his twins, P.O.Box 5, Goldfield, Nevada 89013

My Dad enjoyed Burning Man for many years and was a part of the Art Car Camp. Even though he is no longer at BRC in person, his truck will be making a trip there in the future.

Thanks again, Recycled

Um, didn't I get an e-mail from you asking me to send you a check because your uncle was sick... or something?

No, really, I did.

But maybe that wasn't you.

Or maybe it was.

P.S. What the hell is a phileawhatchamacallit? No, I don't have time to Googleit. I'm preparing for the burn, dammit!

A Philatelist is the $5 word for stamp collector.
[French philatélie : Greek phil-, philo-, philo- (love) + Greek ateleia, exemption from payment (because a postage stamp indicates prepayment of postage)

It could also apply to to the Burner Community....

And, No, I wasn't the one who sent you the letter asking for money for my sick uncle, that was my cousin. I was the one who found the unclaimed money in the account once owned by people who died in that airplane crash, and I want to share it with you. Please send me all of your personal information...(via playa mail!!!!)

So are you telling me that a philatelist has nothing to do with inappropriate activities with young boys? I guess I owe a bunch of stamp collectors a great big apology, don't I? Don't I feel stupid! :roll:

Depends on if you think that it inappropriate for more mature individuals to spend lots of time with youngsters (boys AND girls) looking at little things with magnifying glasses...

I have an ongoing discussion with a lady who collects buttons about whose hobby is the more useless.

And if two vegetarians have a "discussion" is it still a beef? or is it a tofu
