Interesting I will touch on that in the No Commerce entry. Has this ever not been the case however, i.e. was there rampant commerce when the event was held on Indian land?
It had rampant commerce in the Black Rock Desert. Before the BLM cracked down. You could buy food and I think tee-shirt type stuff.
I wonder how long "no commerce" would hold if the event were moved to private land. I can make an argument for 5 years or more towards fifty.
